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

Sara Sidle: No, no. Come on, you know what I mean.
Gil Grissom: As a customer? No.
Sara Sidle: You've never paid for sex?
Gil Grissom: I have not. I find the whole idea very... bleak.
Sara Sidle: Really? How come?
Gil Grissom: Sex should provide the opportunity for human connection, but paid sex does the opposite of that. To me, sex without love is... pointless. It makes you sad.

The Best Episode Ever- "Ending Happy"
2 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode has EVERYTHING! From Milton, the retiree who quotes Longfellow, to a romantic comment between Grissom and Sarah. Who dunnit? Everyone! Cause of death? Everything! A great guest cast, headed by James Whitmore, does an outstanding job in a super setting. A whorehouse in the desert, populated with old coots, beautiful ladies, an inept local constable, and strung out Happy hisself- one of those characters "who needed killing." If Emmy awards aren't given to the writers, cast, special effects artists- it will really be a CRIME.

I really, really need some comic relief, and this episode just made me grin from ear to ear. Thank you, CSI producers- this was the best of the best.
