Frank Carrow

Zack Fenish


Nick forgets about his 'CSI birthday party' when he hears of the murder of Haley, the daughter (16) of dodgy outskirts motel owners Mark and Nicole Jones. Nick was there months earlier for other cases, including two men at floor and attic level of the same room. But the link is with the murder of Bree Lindale, whose complex relationships with the Jones and the local hockey team, especially attorney Gavin Fenish's drug-dealing son Zach, was not unraveled timely. Nor were the Jones's family secrets, connecting them to ex-con Frank Carrow's ex Tanya, who apparently committed suicide in the motel. Written by KGF Vissers

best episode of the season!
23 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i love all the csi series, but i felt this season the original was falling short. after warrick and Sarah left, and girssom was on his way out, it just wasn't as good as it used to be. but this episode definitely changed my mind.

the whole plot of the episode was great, and they carried it through even better. Taylor swift wasn't just a guest on the episode, she was the whole episode. i had no idea she could act that well. but she was amazing throughout the whole thing. it was really sad when it turned out to be the mother who killed Haley, but it added something extra to the episode. it was without a doubt the whole episode of the season.
