  • A very emotional CSI episode

    This episode starts strange in that the CSI's investigate a family residence that has large amounts of blood inside but no bodies anywhere to be found. Further investigation of the home reveals a basement full of marijuana plants. CSI finds that the pools of blood in the house belong to the father, mother and teenage son with no blood found for the young daughter Cassie. Nick believes the young girl to be alive but Sara sends doubt his way telling him that after it's all said and done, the chances of the girl being alive are very slim. The CSI do what they do best and come up with a few suspects and take in some teenage boys for questioning. After it becomes pretty obvious they were involved in the deaths, Nick loses his temper and attacks one of them in the interrogation room demanding to know what they did with Cassie. The title of the episode refers to the trail of bubblegum that Cassie leaves behind to help aid in her rescue and when Nick finds her it is a very emotional scene. Due to her being unable to talk, she writes to Nick thanking him for saving her and it was the closest I've come to crying from a CSI episode. Nick has to explain to Cassie that her family is dead and with the reasons behind it being so senseless this is truly an emotionally stirring episode. Brass and Grissom are also absent from this episode.
