  • The team is called to investigate an alleged kidnapping.

    This episode was absolutely heartbreaking. I did suspect that someone in the family was involved pretty early on, but I was certainly not anticipating the end. It was pretty clear something was up when Grissom grabbed the soda bottle and took it to the lab. I figured they wouldn't put that part in if it didn't mean something. The accused mother was heartbreaking, especially in retrospect. She had to fight her way through a crowd of people who are screaming that she is a baby killer all for the sake of protecting one of her children. I loved Catherine in this episode, too. She held on for so long to the belief that the mother couldn't have killed her baby and that she genuinely loved her child. It was really sad to see that mother at the end going back to her family and knowing that they were all wondering how they would ever recover from something like that. This was definitely one of the best episodes of CSI.
