So Many Stories, So Little Time
22 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There a lot of things going on in this episode, so many things you can't believe it....almost too many for a 40-minute show (without commercials).

For starters, there is a guy in a suit of armor killed in what looks to be a jousting match in Central Park. They don't show it the joust; just two horses running, followed later by the guy found staggering nearby with a lance in his gut.

Murder number two is in a $40,000 a night suit where a man is found tied up in bed with an ice pick through his brain. The night apparently had been capped off with sex and some woman killed this guy.

The third story begins with Mac rushing outside the CSI workplace to see if Payton is okay. She was injured when someone rushed into the loading dock area and snatched a body they had just delivered. She had been out on a training run with a new medical examiner. Witnesses said the dead guy had been acting strange before he dropped on the sidewalk. Payton thought the behavior symptoms indicated the man might have been poisoned. The next morning, a body bag is found in the river and it's the stolen body, except the man is alive!

More twists and turns keep coming, about one-a-minute in this episode. It's really amazing.
