Plot Overview

Crime One

  • Nick and Sarah are on this case.
  • Fire destroys a home in a trailer park. The woman and her "male companion" were killed.
  • The man in the trailer home was killed because he was run over by a car, not from the gas explosion.
  • The man in the trailer was married - his wife has an SUV that matches the tire tracks on his body.
  • The explosion was caused when a vehicle went through the trailer.
  • The tires and paint match a GMC vehicle. The wife is cleared because she drives a Ford.
  • Randy Swansinger was drunk and drove his car through the house. No foul play, just dumb drivers.

Crime Two

  • Warrick and Catherine are on this case
  • A stripper is found dead in a parking lot. She was drunk and beaten to death.
  • She was wearing a sanitation worker's boots. He gave them to her because she had no shoes.
  • The stripper is in the wrong part of town - she is slumming.
  • The stripper was an uptown girl who wanted to try stripping. She got on a bus that was made to be a big limo called a "Champagne Ride."
  • The girl was beaten to death by a homeless man because she took change from his cup.

Crime Three

  • Sara and Greg are on this case
  • Two bodies are found in a car that has been abandoned. They have melted due to the heat.
  • White male, black female.
  • Sara finds many cinnamon buns in the car - the girl, Clara, works at "Gooey Buns"
  • The cinnamon buns are being used to smuggle cocaine.
  • The dead guy was a drug-dealer who asked Clara on a date to a drive-in theatre.
  • A previous client of the drug-dealer worked at the theatre. He saw the car and killed the two people in the car to get the cocaine.


Arc Advancement

  • A tape is sent in about the Walter Gordon case.
  • Grissom is keeping the tape a secret.



  • Warrick got married to "Tina." - It was a drive through chapel.
  • Catherine is bitter because she thinks Warrik's marriage will work out and hers didn't.
  • In the following episode we learn that Catherine is bitter because she had a crush on Warrick and tells him so.
