Lottery-multimillionaire Jay Hixton is shot in the heart at home around midnight. He was apparently forced to open his safe. It contained a gun even butler Reginald Easley didn't know about, which was laid besides him, and a bag, which was taken, containing $100,000 cash and a blue dye bomb, which exploded in a maintenance worker's face. Various suspects arise from Hixton's bizarre generosity, his own murky past and his family, an ex and junkie daughter, and even his winning lottery ticket a year ago. Written by

When Beckett is in the club asking about drugs she says she wants something that will make her feel "shiny". This is thought to be yet another reference to Firefly (2002) which starred Nathan Fillion. "Shiny" was a term often used by the characters as a replacement for the word okay. See more
When Beckett is investigating the crime scene, she claims that the gun (.357 Magnum) found next to the victim would create a larger entry wound than that on the victim. However the bullet diameter of a .357 Magnum is almost identical to that of the 9mm which is claimed to be the actual murder weapon. These weapons would leave entry wounds of comparable size and could not be distinguished with the naked eye. See more
