September 28, 2006: Malibu Barbie Did It? Season 7, Episode 2

So now we know why we sat through the boring part of last week - the suicide was only half the story. The conclusion of the season-opener was exciting, creepy and confusing - everything that makes a good episode of CSI. Last week ended with a blood-soaked Danny Bonaduce dead on a table with a model of the kitchen, down to the utensils and the blood splatter, right next to him. In the investigation we get a very talkative "Annie the nanny" walking about in the house in just her bra, and later we find out she was sleeping with the dead guy. We get a suspect list of pretty much everyone who knows how to build, fix or clean something and we learn that Home Depot can make a key just from an X-ray of it. Might I say that Danny Bonaduce should have more roles like this? He was brilliant, wasn't he? It might have been his best role ever. C'mon, it was at least better than Starface. Anyway, he swallows the key to his safe so that his gold-digger wife (she ain't messin' with no broke, broke) won't get her hands on the contract to sign over his music. They take him to the hospital because of this, and the family brings home an X-ray of the key in his stomach. The nanny then takes it to get a key made and sells the information inside the safe to a tabloid to make money. That's a smart girl. In terms of suspects for the murder, though, did they ever rule her out? In fact, I think the only one they ruled out completely was his son, Sven - since he fainted at the sight of blood. The part that has me baffled is, of course, the last scene. Gil takes a closer look at the scale model of the house and flips over a picture to see half of what looks like a doll face. There has to be more to this that I'm just not getting, but even after thinking about the meaning for a half hour or so, I still don't get it. I'm hoping that someone can explain it or at least give a theory or two (of course, I'm also hoping that I'm not the only one who didn't get it). Is it just unsolved - to possibly be revisited at some point down the line this season? The other story was of course the drugging and rape of Catherine. When she came up blank on a suspect after analyzing her makeshift rape kit from the night before, unfortunately it took another tragedy to finally find out what's going on: She picks up her daughter and gets purposely sideswiped while driving home, and Lindsey gets kidnapped. We find out this is all some sort of a scheme to get money out of her father, Sam, and i t turns out the business partner of the guy who committed suicide last week was behind this whole thing because he lost 20 million in a bad deal with Sam. As Cat is talking with him at the casino, the kidnapper walks up behind Sam and kills him. Catherine's had a really tough 24 hours here, and now she's got an ex-husband and a father who was murdered. What a crazy life she leads. On a lighter note, I thought we got one of the best moments of the entire series in this episode, when Grissom and Dr. Robbins were singing along to one of Izzy's tunes while Robbins played air guitar. Then he sang the cause of death. Brilliant! Anyway, it's your turn now. Someone explain the ending to me, please? I'm open to all theories about what that picture meant. show less
