CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Season 7 episodes

May 17, 2007: Season Finale Season 7, Episode 24

Now there’s an ending! Something happening to Sara certainly wasn’t a well kept secret at all. So, I kind of half expected to be bored by this episode, since I figured I already knew the big spoiler. I certainly wasn’t expecting the absolute psychotic nature of the miniature killer. I mean, you knew the killer wasn’t right in the head based on the crimes themselves, but, wow, this girl was truly nuts. Nothing boring about her. So Natalie Davis is the killer — a foster child of Ernie Dell, who (we learned) killed himself to protect her. As a kid, she pushed her sister off the treehouse and killed her, and tried the same thing with other girls in another foster home. As was suspected earlier in the season, bleach was a trigger that set her mind into a frenzy. Of course, it seemed a lot put her into a frenzy. As she’s running down Fremont Street, the lights overhead put her in a trance. At the end, she’s singing her dad’s ventriloquist song about... read more

The Good, the Bad & the Dominatrix Season 7, Episode 23

Grissom investigates when a sadistic client tries to murder Lady Heather (Melinda Clarke) during a late-night rendezvous at an old West theme park. The probe is made more difficult when Heather refuses to name her attacker. Also, Grissom's reunion with Lady Heather makes Sara uneasy. Across town, Warrick and Nick investigate the death of a pickpocket who was apparently struck by a car. read more

Leapin' Lizards Season 7, Episode 22

A blackjack dealer is murdered and several of the suspects belong to a strange UFO club whose members believe that shape-shifting aliens have mated with humans in order to conquer the human race. Shannon: Ally Sheedy. DeVere: Enrico Colantoni. Clarissa: Julie Hagerty. read more

April 26, 2007: Happy Season 7, Episode 21

As I begin, it's now exactly 34 minutes past the end of this week's episode and I'm still laughing. What a riot this was. You know Brass always brings a little bit of humor and he dominated this episode from the start. So, let's see. Our boxer "Happy" gets injected with snake venom, then has a severe allergic reaction to shellfish, which transferred to him via some "very special first-aid." Then as his lungs are tightening and he's about to lose all his air, he gets an arrow through the throat that actually keeps him alive and then he takes a crowbar to the skull. Oh, and that didn't kill him, either. A broken pool chair did. The scenes inside the Sugar Cane Ranch were so funny. Right from the start when Brass is interviewing the owners, Binky and Doris, I was rolling with laughter. Between Binky telling Brass the last time he saw Happy was when he was being rolled away and Doris saying that she fixed his favorite meal — meat — you could just tell that stupidity was going ... read more

April 12, 2007: ? Season 7, Episode 20

A question mark. That pretty much sums up my feelings for this episode of CSI. What a bizarre ride this one was. I'm an outspoken guy and usually have plenty of words to convey my feelings, but I'm not sure what to say for this one. I can't take the straight-up recap approach because there was only about 10 minutes of new, interesting substance. So instead, I'm going to bullet-point my thoughts and you can feel free to comment on them. — First of all, half of this episode was like a bad greatest-hits CD. Greatest-hits CDs are made for the casual fan or the newbie who's never listened before but would like a good summary of an artist. This episode wasn't even career-spanning but rather one of those late-period throw-offs. I would take a bet that the majority of regular viewers of CSI would have been able to remember the basics of the previous miniature crimes without having to recap them like this. I understand the other lab techs had to be brought up to speed, but there had to ... read more

Big Shots Season 7, Episode 19

Greg learns that the brother of the man he killed in self-defense months earlier is connected to the shooting death of a thug in a limousine. read more

March 29, 2007: Welcome Back! Season 7, Episode 18

Can you believe it's been more than a month since the last new CSI episode? So what better way to rekindle my CSI flame than to give me an unusually high amount of bloody gore! This episode certainly was one of the more gruesome in recent memory. Six young showgirls all tied up with their throats slashed and a full half hour at least at the crime scene. It was kind of creepy, too. The gang doesn't usually come across victims that are still alive, so when the one girl reached out from under the bed, I admit, I jumped a bit. Not as much as Sara though, I'm sure. One of the things I've always loved about CSI are those scenes where we watch the crime happen from inside the body — you know, the ones where we see every organ the bullet hit. The one they showed in this episode had to be pretty nasty. A knife puncture deep enough to hit spine (or maybe rib?) and hard enough to break off the tip of the knife. That's not the way I want to go out. And did you see how many puncture wounds ... read more

February 22, 2007: Fallen Idols Season 7, Episode 17

What a crazy little episode this was. To me, this was one of the least predictable episodes of the season, which is always a good thing. We all know the high-school jock/cheerleader story. That's certainly nothing new. But the events surrounding the disappearance and possible murder of these kids was very creative. (Now's the time to insert your own "Didn't you ever watch [famous show]? This same story happened in Season 2 of [famous show] back in 1994. I'm positive my answer will be, "Nope, I didn't see it.")The opening sequence was a little long and pretty generic while in the high school, but leave it to Grissom to liven things up. He's a fiesty one when you get him up on a Saturday. I loved when he was standing in empty space and turned to the cop and said, "What do you want me to test?" That's prime, grade-A Grissom right there. The first twist I wasn't expecting was when Sheila died in custody. She didn't seem stressed at all about her best friend going missing, so I simply as... read more

February 15, 2007: The Miniatures Season 7, Episode 16

I love the miniature killer! OK, so I don't love the killer himself, obviously, but I love what he brings to CSI. Once again, I was on the edge of my seat the entire episode, right from the start when we saw what essentially was a Grissom freak-out. I loved the opening scene when he was scurrying down the hall with a very panicked look on his face. After all, Gil is the guy who always believes the evidence will point to the suspect, and at the moment he was holding a fourth model, he knew it had led him astray this time.I must give my props to Gil, though. I know he's great at noticing the little details, and, well, it's his job, but I would have driven myself nuts trying to find the ever so slightest of clues in a miniature model. But he found the date on the newspaper (kudos to the producers for using the correct date), the cat behind the books, the menus that were able to help them find the right building, the notes on the dolls, and best of all, he did an autopsy on the body to ... read more

February 8, 2007: The Return of Grissom Season 7, Episode 15

It's time for everyone to disagree with me again. When my opinion about an episode sways drastically one way or the other, it usually means everyone will think the exact opposite. So here's your chance. This was the best episode of the season! If there were still any lingering questions about Keppler possibly showing up in a few episodes with Gil, they are all gone now. Last week, what I thought was a clear assumption that Keppler killed this "Amy" girl wasn't true at all. And thinking he killed the guy he thought raped her also turned out to be false. So I guess Mike really was trying to put his past behind him and move on. He was a cop that killed an innocent man, but in the end he actually didn’t seem that dirty compared to his buddy Frank. Man, Frank was really just going to hand the gun over so they could finger his buddy for the murder? That's crazy. And now, Mike is gone. A tough break since we finally saw some real emotion when he slammed the pimp's head into the table.... read more

February 1, 2007: Meet Market Season 7, Episode 14

Miss me? Nah, didn't think so. You guys did such a great job with the recaps last week, I seriously thought about making myself busy again and just letting you write it up again. But I couldn't go another week without CSI. I kind of wish I did, though.Now, I told you last week that I would watch the episode over the weekend and then comment on it, and I didn't. So here's my comment. I watched the first 20 minutes, and then decided I'd much rather be playing Madden. Does that say enough? I couldn't rely on that option this week, though, so I toughed it out. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzHow's that for a recap of this week's episode? OK, I'm just kidding. I'll discuss it a little bit. I'm sure it will be split down the middle with people that liked it and those that didn't. But I have to admit, last week there were more comments about the episode being boring than I can remember in a long time. I can certainly picture many of those comments being cut and pasted into this week's commentary, too. The ... read more

January 25, 2007: It's On You Tonight! Season 7, Episode 13

Bad news, folks, (good news to some of you). Grissom invited me up to watch him lecture on Wednesday, so I took a trip to his school and sat in on him for a bit. Unfortunately, it's a long trip, and I didn't make it home in time to see this week's episode. But, I'm opening up a string for you to recap and comment, and I'll watch it over the weekend and leave my own thoughts then. Here's hoping you all enjoyed it, so I'll have something to look forward to. Until next week, friends. read more

January 18, 2007: Gil Who? Season 7, Episode 12

No, no, no. I'm just kidding with the title of my blog. I wouldn't want to start a quarterback controversy here. Is the show better off without William Petersen? Is the fresh blood of Liev Schreiber a nice jolt of energy? Can no one ever match up with Gil Grissom? All very good questions, which I can let you decide. But let me share my thoughts. Hello, Mr. Mike Keppler. A nice dark, mysterious intro followed by him walking up to the body and touching it. Good start, buddy. And right there we begin a show filled with attitude, as Catherine chastises him for touching and explains how they do things in Vegas. Ain't no messing around in the Vegas crime lab. It wasn't just Cat, though. Almost everyone seemed a little on edge with the new guy in town. There was Sofia telling the Doc not to whistle as he cuts people open. Sara, jawing a bit with the slacker detective. Even Keppler was able to get in on it when Catherine asked him how he knew all the deaths were related, and he firmly said,... read more

Leaving Las Vegas Season 7, Episode 11

Loco Motives Season 7, Episode 10

Grissom investigates when a worker at a poultry processing plant is found dead in a stun bath used to electrocute chickens before they are slaughtered.

It quickly becomes apparent that the other three men may also be targets. Roger Daltrey guest stars. read more

Also, Grissom is invited to take part in a seminar at Brown University, which would require him to take a sabbatical. read more

Post Mortem Season 7, Episode 7

After a woman dying of cancer is murdered in her home, the killer later returns to leave a miniature exact replica of the crime scene.
