  • A man gets raped and it changes his life forever.

    This was a fantastic episode filled with emotion and a very good storyline This episode was near enough perfect with two cases related one with a young man been beaten and raped and been left wishing he had been killed which must be horrible and when he leaves the hospital without doctors orders it shows how humiliated he is The other case that Langston and Greg work on links to the rape case because the person who was killed was the man who raped him The man who raped him was the brother of the person the rape victim was seeing It was an emotional ending leaving Tommy unable to stay with Jess because it will be always on his mind that he was raped and it will be always like that It was a sad ending and the episode delivered.moreless
  • A fresh difference from the usual

    I got to admit it, I'm mostly watching CSI and it's different flavours as Shark weekend on discovery. It's nice to kick back in the sofa and have some moving pictures going on in front of me. But this episode stood out from the usual blend. Touching a subject that is so taboo that it usually don't get reported. But here they show that also men can feel emotional hurt and distress after an assault. Fans of Hodges and Wendy will also get a little treat. As a geek with a bleeding heart I love to see how it will end.moreless
  • Another average episode

    In this episode of CSI, the following happens. The CSI team investigate two different crimes which seem unrelated. Although they quickly learn that they are connected. Soon they have 3 people confessing to one murder, and so the team have to go through the evidence again to discover who is telling the truth.

    Overall, I thought this episode was actually quite boring. Last week's episode was better than this one, and hopefully next week will be even better, since it is suppose to be part of a CSI trilogy. So I have high hopes for that episode. I think that CSI is still struggling to find its feet without Warrick, Sara (full time) and Grissom.moreless
  • Everything is connected

    Even thought they have done it before - but many cases in table and in the end, it comes out, they were connected, I really liked the story of this one. I mean, it was hard, moving and something that really got to you. Maybe I have been watching this show too much or something but usually the cases are very distanced, but this one.. it got to me. Specially I loved the ending, he just walking away from the girl, seconds after it all looked like happy ending. That was really good turn, showing that sometimes the damage is too big and there is no way going back.moreless
  • Wow! Never thought CSI would dive into such deep and dark waters as male rape. And they did it with so much class and emotion.

    This episode was so good. It was sad. And a nice mystery. I liked that 3 people confessed and believed that they all thought one of the other ones did it but then it was the girlfriend/stripper who was stealing stuff with him. What about Doc Robbins and Langston's clapper scene. That was so funny.

    And Hodges with Wendy was also really good. He was sooooo sweet. She is upset about not being able to "pull a sanders". LOL Good lines. The actors who played the couple and the brother and the drunk mother were all amazing. I felt so sorry for the boy who was raped and his girlfriend who was beaten. Overall, best episode of the season. Nice work CSI.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Ray: Sometimes, when God closes a door, Satan opens a window.

    • Greg: Where have you been?
      Hodges: I was dialoging with Conrad. What else have you been touching?
      Greg: Have you run the trace from cash tray? (Hodges hands him the file, Greg reads it) Dust bunnies?
      Hodges: Comprised of dirt, pollen, metal shavings and fecal matter. Did you know that most dust contains trace amounts of poop? Even in hospitals.
      Greg: What about the white fragment?
      Hodges: Eh, still in the works. Alright, I know you're dying to know, so I'm just gonna tell you. I was talking to Onrad-Cay about Endy-Way and an ansfer-tray to the ield-fay.
      Greg: I need the trace ow-nay. (goes to leave) Oser-lay.

    • Ray (about the burnt matches): Maybe you could pull DNA.
      Wendy: I knew you were takin' all the classes, I didn't realize you knew all about DNA.
      Ray: I don't know all about it, yet. But I did learn that burned materials used to be collected in paint cans, and plastic bags which preserves accelerant but destroys DNA, which no one knew until recently can survive fire damage.
      Wendy (smiles): I take it you passed.
      Ray: You take it right.

    • Ray: So, Wayne Smith sexually assaulted Tommy Baker.
      Nick: Which gives Tommy motive to kill the bastard. If I were Tommy, I'da killed him, too.

    • April: And don't be surprised if Mr. Baker never admits he was raped. Odds are, you'll probably close the case on lack of co-operation and then make fun of him around the office. Have a Nice day, Mr. Stokes.
      Nick: Hey, what is your problem? I'm just trying to do my job here.
      April: I've watched you guys stand over dead bodies and crack jokes. I still see a human being when all you see is evidence. Which, might make you a good investigator, but it also makes you cold, hard, people.
      Nick: So you can feel compassion for dead people? But you can't feel it for someone who's alive, wearing a badge, tryin' to help. Good luck with that. Enjoy your sandwich.

    • Catherine: You said that Tommy got violent when you tried to process him? He refused medical treatment, he went home and showered, and according to his brother, he wouldn't talk about what happened. If this were a woman, what would you think?
      Nick: I'd think she was raped.

    • Greg: Why'd the killer put the gun back in the register? Langston? ... Ray? ... I'll answer my own question. You see Greg, cop pulls you over and finds cash on you, no big deal. If he finds a gun, then you're going to jail.

    • Greg: Botched burglary?
      David: I guess it's more than the economy that's killing small business owners.

    • Ray (about the broken door): Did you happen to notice if this was the fire department's handiwork or not?
      Greg: You mean, the evidence eradication team?

    • Nick: A St. Christopher medal with blood on it?
      Catherine: Could belong to the victim.
      Nick: Yeah, it didn't do him much good, did it?
      Catherine: That's because he's the patron saint of travel. Eddie used to have one hanging on his rear-view, didn't do him much good either.

    • Catherine: What's with all the blood?
      Hooker: Oh, don't take that tone with me, blondie. This is the blood on an innocent Samaritan.
      Brass: Oh, yeah? We got a special on Samaritans, we're arresting them tonight.

    • Brass: What are you doing in the alley?
      Hooker: I was looking for my cat, she's lost.
      Brass: Yeah. What's your cat's name?
      Hooker: Pussycat.
      Brass: Now, why didn't I know that?

    • Wendy: What is up with Ecklie?
      Hodges: Excuse me?
      Wendy: He said he's not gonna let anybody else pull a Sanders. I don't get to go out in the field. And the thing that really pisses me off about this, I have recommendation letters from Grissom, Catherine and Nick in my file. It didn't make any difference to him. I mean, it's ridiculous, this is supposed to be a meritocracy.
      Hodges: Since when?
      Wendy: Et tu, Hodges?
      Hodges: It's a bureaucracy. Just keeping it real. You want me to talk to Conrad for you?
      Wendy: Yeah, no, I can talk to him myself.
      Hodges: You sure? We're in book club together and Conrad respects my opinion. At least where Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is concerned.
      Wendy: I thought you were against me going from lab rat to field mouse?
      Hodges: I just want you to be happy.

    • Nick: So, you catch a guy burglarizing your store. You wanna teach him a lesson, I get it. so you beat him, stab him or maybe even shoot him. But do you have to rape him?
      Ray: Greek warriors in ancient times would sodomize their enemies after a battle, to humiliate them, take their manhood--
      Nick: Yeah, yeah. I understand the concept of humiliation-- rape isn't about sex, it's about violence. But this is a little excessive, don't you think?
      Langston: Well... for some men... violence is their sex.

    • Catherine: That's because he's the patron saint of travel. Eddie used to have one hanging on his rearview, didn't do him much good either.

      This is an allusion to the season 3 episode Lady Heather's Box, in which Catherine's ex-husband Eddie, accidentally runs his car off the road and dies.

    • Episode Title: Death And The Maiden

      The title alludes to the play of the same name, written by Ariel Dorfman. The play depicts the story of a woman, Paulina, who is a survivor of rape and torture. It examines the physical and psychological after effects on the victim and whether there is any value in revenge.

    • Greg: Looks like Jack Sparrow's been here.

      When Greg opens a container full of watches, jewelry, and valuable items, he alludes to the famous fictional pirate Captain Jack Sparrow, played by Johnny Depp in the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise, which is also produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.
