Grissom, Brown and Willows investigate the death of an old woman who lived in a house full of cats. She had been dead for several days and was evidently stabbed. Two children living across the street say they saw the old woman's argue with her next door neighbor. A wall safe in her bedroom was also broken into. Stokes and Sidle meanwhile investigate when a car is blown up and the owner has no idea why anyone would try to kill her. The evidence, including fingerprints on a piece of the pipe bomb, all points to the woman's husband who works in the family demolition business.

It's also the only open lead in our case. Spit it out, Greg.
