Storyline

Hollywood sex symbol Tom Haviland admits having had sex with a girl who is found in the same casino hotel, throat fatally pierced with a corkscrew. As he failed to clean up, the team quickly gathers enough evidence for a murder charge. His top lawyer chooses to demand a near-instant trial, leaving CSI almost no time to work out the part of Tom's buddy and a second victim, actually the first murder. Meanwhile Grissom's mentor and predecessor, Dr. Phillip Gerard, uses all his forensic expertise to question every move they make and discredit team members. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Catherine Willows: Marjorie's requesting copies of CSI's proficiency test records, by midnight.
Gil Grissom: So relax. If any of us had failed the yearly proficiency test, we wouldn't be here.
Catherine Willows: You completely forget, don't you? My test is on appeal.
Gil Grissom: Oh, right.
Catherine Willows: Board said I was wrong on one question. I said the question was ambiguous. They're going to rule my way, but not before the prelim.

Catherine Willows: Just trying to rattle me.
Gil Grissom: Is it working?

perfect TV, flawless
31 January 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

OK, because this series has been running since Noah first started his ark, and because of the cast changes, let's be clear — this is the third season of the show, 2002, with the original cast.

Now, there is the thing.

This was ALREADY a top-rated hit show. The producers were doing just fine and had no need to mix it up. But they did anyway. This is one of the many episodes which veers off in a new direction and takes the viewer along for the ride.

The idea of Grissom's team under attack by his old mentor. They notion that they must beat all the dirty tricks. And the slam-bang ending are ... brilliant.

One of the best hours of TV ever filmed. Recommended
