Julian Harper, a famous movie star, is found dead in his hotel suite after a wild night of partying and sex. Although his room has many traces of drugs and alcohol, his tox report shows that he couldn't have died from an overdose. He suffocated to death, yet his neck shows no signs of strangulation. Another case involves the death of three people, two Laotians and a taxi driver. One of the Laotians, as well as the unlucky cabbie, died from gunshot wounds. The other man, found in his car, died from excessive blood loss. This case leads the CSIs to a laundry facility that employs many South East Asians. Written by Ploy P.

Did You Know?


As the taxi is shown driving down the strip with the Asian passenger, we get to see casino signs reflected in the glass window. However they are not reflections as they are not reversed, you are seeing them as if you were looking out the window. See more »


[Warrick snaps photos of the dead body]
Dr. Al Robbins: Julian Harper. If it weren't for the cyanosis, I'd say he was doing a photo shoot for GQ.
Warrick Brown: Yeah, I'm sure he wasn't ready for *this* photo shoot.

Unsatisfying Endings, But Better Than The First Week
28 February 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

We see some handsome young movie actor with all his female admirers ogling him at several places, then a disturbed-looking Asian man getting out of a cab and obviously agitated. The next thing we know, all three have been shot. The latter two, we find out early, were shot by the same gun at the same time. A shotgun blasted the "fare" and one of the pellets caromed off an iron gate and struck the cab driver in the neck, killing him! But why was the man shot in the first place? The killer said he was shooting a "burglar" but there was nothing in his house to steal!

Meanwhile, how exactly and with what the young movie star was killed is puzzling the ME "Dr. Robbins" (Robert David Hall). The doctor sees no evidence, except for one mark on his neck, of how the man was asphyxiated, which seems to be the cause of death.

Not a bad episode, better than the opening week, but still a bit unsatisfying in the end on both murder cases.
