Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Kacey Monahan
Sally Rand


Serial killer genius Nate Haskell enjoyed his attack in jail on Langston, who loses a kidney. At the funeral of uniformed officer Franklin Clark, a cleverly planned and detonated series of bombs would have killed many policemen hadn't Nick, who was hurt before and asked to leave by the family, spotted suspicious insect behavior. The bombs are traced to an anti-government society, including the McCann brothers. Nick talks sense into junior Jason. Yet a booby-trapped homeless corpse indicates the LVPD remains targeted.

24 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

awesome opening to a season with probably the best pre credits sequence ever. No quips, just action, excellent acting from George Eads as usual 'There's another bomb!!!' i've heard that Marg Helgenberger is leaving in episode 19 of this season which will make Nick the ranking CSI, well deserved but I am thinking that the Producers will find a way to make Langston the Supervisor, good characher but a level 2 CSI. Greg Sanders is more qualified!

I do agree with the other reviewer who says that they may as well call it the Ray Langston hour, Laurence Fishburne is an awesome actor but he isn't Grissom and never will be. Biggest name actor does not always mean best for the show.

Cant wait for episode 2
