Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Joe Hirschoff
Cirque Manager


During a performance of the world famous circus-act "Cirque du Soleil" the young investor Robert O'Brien's body is found dead on stage, apparently having shot himself. The gun belonged to co-investor Joe Hirschoff, who inherits his Eclipse shares and was deep in debt; however a rare muscular disease can explain O'Brien's finger position. In the Las Vegas club Ka, the young Celia Noel's body is found on stage; security cameras noticed her slip in back-stage with Arnie Clifton. Brass receives a high-profile honor, but puts the plaque away considering he committed an unforgivable rookie's error. The next morning Catherine wakes up naked in a bedroom, neither hurt nor robbed, but takes the evidence in rape-cases from herself. Written by KGF Vissers

Catherine finds herself in a strange bed in a hotel room. Grissom discovers a miniature scene depicting the crime scene at the murder of a rock star.
30 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode was excellent. Near the end was the best part. After they've solved their cases, Nick and Catherine go out dancing. John Mayer guest stars at the bar they go to. Catherine drinks something at the bar and soon finds herself in a strange bed in a hotel room. Meanwhile, Grissom discovers a miniature scene depicting the crime scene at the murder of a rock star. Every detail is exactly the same. Viewers are left in suspense waiting for what will happen to Catherine. I thought this episode was amazing. It was a great way to start off the seventh season. This is by far one of my favourite episodes. All the actors on the show are excellent.
