Wealthy Roy Logan acts suspiciously when withdrawing $1,000,000 cash and his blood on his hands, but must be released for lack of a crime. When Catherine rushes after him with his spectacles, she gets a phone-call and is shown a severed finger proving Logan's adulterous lover Amanda Freeman was kidnapped. Logan ignores her advice, almost greedily handing over the ransom without proof of life, and Amanda is found where indicated- murdered days before. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Sarah says the finger is severed 'just below the right intercostal joint.' Costal refers to ribs, so such joints are not found in the finger. The finger was actually severed at the metacarpal phalangeal joint. See more »

This is definitely one of the best episodes of CSI I've ever seen, and that's saying something, as I've seen almost all of them before. It's clever, engaging, interesting, and a bit scary, too. In other words, it's perfect.

The basic premise: Catherine is at a bar when she meets a man who has found the finger of his wife in his home. They talk, and the man gets a phone call from a mystery person who tells them that they're being watched. He also says for them both to leave the café and drive to a certain location, or else face dire consequences.

But Catherine, being the quick thinker that she is, realizes something: Sara's on a date in the very same bar! So Catherine grabs the finger, puts it in a glass of ice water, and plunks it down on Sara's table as she walks out with the man. And now Sara and the rest of the CSI's have to figure out what's happening just from the one finger before it's too late for Catherine and the other man.

Overall, a very suspenseful, well-written, and awesome CSI episode. A definite must-see.
