    By 7dixob, Aug 29, 2012

    Even without Grissom the episodes are still great and as good as they come when a family is murdered over drugs and their little girl is kidnapped and Nick is determined to find her because he believes if he survived when he was buried alive that she can survived when she is kidnapped.he girl leaves gum drops so that the CSI's can follow them to find her.Nick and the CSI's manage to find her in the end but has trouble speaking when Nick visits her in hospital with a very emotional ending.moreless

    Nick, you're the hero!

    By Danny2312, Jul 14, 2010

    Just another amazing episode with no bodies are found in a crime scene. Nick is the first CSI to appear in this episode, and he is the one in charge of this case. Together with Warrick, Sara and Greg, they all travel to the small town for the investigation, except for Catherine Willows, who leaves at the crime lab. You call this a good episode? No, this is not a good episode, this is a PERFECT episode with perfect writing and perfect directing. One of the best episode in this series. Nick done a very good job in this case, but I think he is affected by what happened to him in the season 5 finale. But Nick is great, he's a very good CSI. Am I wrong?moreless

    A wonderful story

    By moonlightenvy, Jul 14, 2010

    This episode is extraordinary. The CSIs try to solve 3 murders and a possible missing girl. Nick believes that the girl, Cassie, is still alive. The other CSIs believe she is dead. They find suspects from a local high school and figure out eventually what happened. The story of this episode is heartbreaking with narration throughout by Cassie. This episode is one of my favorites because it is so emotional, and simply a well told story. The end is especially a tearjerker. You will want the story to continue when the credits are rolling. This episode is amazing, and such a great one in the CSI series. Well worth watching again and again.moreless

    Amazing!!! I wish I could rate it higher than 10!!!

    A small Nevada town, hours away from Las Vegas, we find Nick and three blood pools.A family of four missing, cell phones, wallets all there. Sara and the others, minus Grissom, arrive to help Nick.They find pounds of marajuana in the basement, "Motive.", States Sara as she and Nick photograph the drugs. Greg finds a piece of bubble gum in the drive way, along with odd tread marks that could be from a hitch or a boat.They ran DNA on the blood pools, match to Mom, Dad, Son, nothing to prove that the daughter, Cassie, was killed. On top of that none of her shoeprints were found at the scene.The evidence leads them to a local highschool student and his friends. After finding a kitchen-sized trash bag full of marajuana is found in the trunk of his car he is the prime suspect. After searching his car they also find a piece of bubble gum in his back seat. By this time Nick is very emotionally involved in the case, seeing as he had been buried alive six months prior. Sara encourages him not to get too deep into this. "Nick, you're acting like you're going to rescue a person, not find a body and on this job that's not usually the case." she says worried about her friend. " I was rescued." he says smiling. "It wasn't your day to die..." she said.

    Sara and Greg search the suspects boat. Guess what they find. A piece of bubble gum. Nick is convinced that Cassie is leaving them clues. Sara thinks that it is a major stretch, to think that finding a piece of gum is a clue, just didn't work for her. They learn from the suspects mother that he and his friends had taken the boat out the night before. While interagating the suspect Nick goes off and pins him against the wall."Stop messing with me, where is she?".Nick and Sara go to the lake that the suspects had been to the night before.Sara confronts him about what happened at the police station. He apologizes and they search the lake. They find the Mother, Father and Son, No Cassie. Sara goes back to the police station and interviews the suspect while Nick searches the lake again.Cassie is found of the shore of the lake with her throat slashed and a pack of bubble gum by her side. She is taken to the hospital where Nick visits her. She hands him a card that reads: To: goodguys About: badguys, Thanks for finding me. Nick begins to tear up. Of course she asks about her family. Nick tries to shelter her, but she is too smart to be babied. Great Episode!!! My Favoritemoreless

    A home is found covered in blood, but no bodies are found. When the CSI team come in to investigate, Nick attaches to the little girl in the house and has hope that she can be found alive.

    By CSIGeekFan, Apr 25, 2010

    This is one of the best episodes ever written for the show. After everything Nick experienced, his reaction to hoping the little girl can be found alive showed a believable reaction to his own survival after Grave Danger.



    When Nick and Sara talk over a picnic table, and she tried to gently let him know that it's probable the little girl is as dead as the rest of the family, Nick takes exception. It's a poignant moment when he talks about his own survival.



    The most chilling part of the entire show is hearing the tale told through the raspy voice of a little girl. It brings an eerie quality to the episode that culminates in Nick's visit to her in the hospital.



    The episode was utterly amazing.moreless

    Nick takes the lead on a case where a family of four have gone missing. Nick thinks that the little girl may still be alive, but Sara is doubtful. We see a more caring side to Sara as she helps Nick cope with the emotions of the case.

    By PhoenixFirefly, Apr 25, 2010

    This is one of the best episodes to date. What makes this episode so good is Nick not only trying to find the young girl, but Nick trying to deal with his own abduction from the previous season, but the part of the episode that really got me was the heartfelt and emotional ending with Nick and the now safe young girl. Throughout this episode the voiceovers lead me to believe that in the end Nick would find the girl, but it would be too late and she would of died and it was being told as though they were her lasts thoughts, but in the end, Nick finds her in time, and I'm not ashamed to say that I had a tear in my eye.moreless

    A sad story about a little girl whose family are killed!

    By RockyBoc, Apr 25, 2010

    This was one of the saddest episodes of CSI ive seen and with the addition of the little Girls narration throughout it was definitely an interesting way for the story to be told.

    The other thing i liked about this episode is the fact that there was little of Grissom and Catherine, and although i like them it was nice to see the rest of the team go it alone for a change, especially Nick who took the lead in searching for the little girl. The sheer reasoning behined why the girls family were killed was awful in the fact that they didn't have 2 die, the final scene was very well performed and overall this is one of the saddest cases the team have investigated. Top Form.moreless

    By swassy, Jun 23, 2007

    The CSIs arrived at a crime scene where all four members are thought to be murdered, only to find out that the little girl might still be alive. Nick takes the lead on this case and is convinced that the little girl is still alive. As they proceed through the investigation, they follow gum drops trail that the girl left on the way. Sara thinks that Nick might be taking the case personally after what happened to him when he was kidnapped and buried. In the end, the little girl is found and she thanks Nick for saving her from the ‘bad guys’.moreless

    This is a great episode!

    By sid1157, Jun 19, 2007

    I like this episode because the kid is so cleaver and leaves a trail of gum. I though it was cool how nick was so involved in the case and from the start though the little girl was alive.This case really brought out Nicks character because he could relate to the victim because he was one to. I thought it was cool too because Sara was there to kinda keep him on track and under control.I liked how the beging was how the little girl was telling just part of what happened and when they found a weird clue she would say somthing and it was kinda creepy!moreless

    An adorable ending.......

    By weescottie, Jun 10, 2007

    The Grissom sized hole in this eppy didn't affect me in the slightest (for the first and only time!)



    Nick Stokes, along with Greggo, Warrick and Sara are investigating the heartbreaking disappearence of an entire family- but it's the little girl who's the main focus here. Nicky becomes almost obsessed by her, and believe she's leaving him a trail of "Gum Drops" to lead to her location.



    This episode has clearly been plotted to perfection, but Sara Sidle's sympathetic dealing with her upset co-worker Nicky gives the story a nice central. I love their relationship- and the fact that it sort of continues from Grave Danger, offers us loyal viewers some continuity.



    And the ending!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well- lets just say it's bittersweet, but I'm now officially in love with a fictional character!!



    Oh and kudos to George Eads, for yet another Emmy deserving performance.moreless
