24 Episodes 2005 - 2006
Season 6 begins a few weeks after the traumatic events recounted in the two-part Season 5 finale in which Nick Stokes (George Eads) was kidnapped and buried alive. Nick is now back at work but still occasionally relives the experience.\ This is certainly true when Nick spots Kelly Gordon (Aimee Graham), the daughter of the man who abducted him, watching him at a crime scene. What he doesn't know is that Grissom (William Petersen) is investigating who might have been an accomplice in Nick's case. Nick's brush with death makes colleague Warrick Brown (Gary Dourdan) realize how short life is, so he impetuously marries girlfriend Tina (Meta Golding), a nurse, much to the dismay of Catherine (Marg Helgenberger). Unfortunately, Warrick's marriage hits some rough spots as the season progresses. Meanwhile, Sofia Curtis (Louise Lombard), a one-time lab tech who considered quitting, resurfaces as a detective working the graveyard shift. She is horrified when a rookie police officer is killed by friendly fire during a shootout with gang members. Sofia fears she may have fired the fatal bullet. Or could it have been Brass (Paul Guilfoyle)? Catherine, too, is fearful when her estranged dad Sam Braun (Scott Wilson) becomes the suspect in a murder that occurs at a posh party hosted by a once glamorous Vegas showgirl (guest star Faye Dunaway). Of course, twisted cases once again take center stage: A man suffering from human werewolf syndrome is gunned down with a silver bullet; a shooting victim is revealed to be a virgin who has given birth; a "mini Jonestown" massacre is discovered; a deadly rivalry erupts between two rappers (Blink-182's Travis Barker guest stars); and Lady Heather (Melinda Clarke) resurfaces after her estranged daughter's emaciated body is found dumped in the desert. In the season finale, the relationship between Grissom and Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox) takes a dramatic turn.
