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

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.
