Storyline

The team investigates the death of Lorenzo 'Happy' Morales, a one-time ranked middleweight boxer who has fallen on hard times and is now living at Binky's Sugar Cane Ranch, a licensed brothel. Happy is found floating in the pool but the coroner is having a hard time coming up with a cause of death. Based on the evidence, they are able to prove that one of the girls hit Happy on the head with a crowbar, someone shot him through the throat with an arrow, another injected him with snake venom and finally, someone induced anaphylactic shock by exposing him to seafood in a most unique way. However, none of the evidence points definitely to which occurrence was the actual cause of death. Written by garykmcd

Gil Grissom: Where's your coroner?
Sheriff Ned Bastille: Couldn't get him on the horn. Probably out in some barn, up to his elbows in a cow's vagina.
Sara Sidle: Excuse me?
Sheriff Ned Bastille: Oh yeah, coroner's a part time gig here in Bryant County. He's a veterinarian. That's his money gig.

She's grown up
27 April 2007 | by (Arlington, VA) – See all my reviews

(No real spoiler but hints at the direction of the episode.)

I have to agree with the statements that that this was one of the best episodes this season. The constant redirection, the outrageous things done to the boxer, not to mention the whole "boxer trains at a brothel" idea are some of the most creative of the season.

I really like the continuity of this season. Events and plot lines from previous episodes affect the characters as the season progresses. But every once in a while, you just have to have fun and break away from the formula. It allows both the writers and the actors some freedom from having to continue to answer questions from previous episodes, while still allowing consistent character development.

But, to my summary. I wondered where I had seen the actress playing one of the "pleasure providers." I realized she was the daughter in "What Women Want." She has really grown up.

EDIT: I just realized where I had seen Doris Babinkian (the "madam"): Sister Mary Robert from the Sister Act movies. Talk about growing up.....
