  • First (as far as I know) time that we follow the aftermath of the murders through the killer. This episode is special because we can see that the killer has a wife and a kid, and how it breaks his family up after the police find out he's a murderer.moreless

    Karl Cooper, an ex-con, sneaks out in the dead of night to kill a man who betrayed him in court. When he leaves the scene of the crime, Ally Sullivan's car crashes into his, and she insists on making a police report. Karl can't have the cops find out he was anywhere near the crime scene that night, so he kills Ally, beacuse dead people can't talk. Karl goes home and pretends nothing ever happened. He shaves his beard off and in the morning we find out he has a little daughter and a wife. We continue to follow Karl Cooper through the rest of the episode, which makes "Killer" different. In the end Karl runs away, but he calls his wife who confirms that the police are there and are threatening to take Maddy (his daughter), so Karl walks up to a police officer and confesses. "Killer" teaches you that even if you think you've committed the "perfect" murder, there's always something unexpected, something you didn't anticipate, that might send your plan crashing down on your ears.moreless
  • We follow the killer, we know the killer and in a strange Arlington Road way we feel for the killer.

    Great episode, I loved the point of view shift. *DISCLAIMER* I in now way shape or form wish bad things on anyone, I don't like thought that people can do evil and live with themselves. With that being said I really wanted to bad guy to get away with it, it was so ridiculous that he did not take the cell phone, that was the reason he returned to her, and as meticulous as he was, he would have found the phone and disposed of it, and since the victim did not dial the number, but was just storing it, nobody would have been the wiser as to who he was. Great episode, they should most definitely try more like this, one a year would be nice.moreless
  • CSI's are looking from the killers point of view. Clever!!!

    This CSI was no run of the mill episode. Nick, Grissom and everyone one else was very logical. A very professional killer, Karl Cooper, kills two people. A party girl and an old friend. When they found the party girl, Alay, this murder was the biggest mistake of all. Alay typed in the numberplate on her phone. Karl twisted her neck so she only had about a minute to do it before she died. She managed to hit in YKA.

    Side B of the case Catherine found a gun, which was very loud. Later in the case,which is getting complicated, they find a silencer which muffles the gun sound. Nick finds a burnt SIV. He finds that it is the killers bike. He found out that a Janet Cooper bought it. Nick cracked the case. He puts Karl in jail.moreless
  • I watched this episode. I think...

    I remember watching the episode, or at least I remember the part when Nick and Greg went out into the desert and found porn but that is the only part I remember. I really couldn't say anything constructive about this episode if I tried. Seeing it from the killer’s point of view is an interesting thing to do but it would have only worked if they had done it properly. Alas they didn't and I was almost at a point of wondering when the episode ended. The producers of the show are lucky that I am completely and utterly addicted to their show otherwise this season would almost see me stop watching. But since I love this show, I will continue watching but only for now will I continue watching, this may change.moreless
  • Every once in a while you have to step out of the box and be creative, try something new.

    After six seasons even the creative team of CSI will get bored with what they are doing and need to take a step in a new direction. It may not fit with what the audience is use to, and some fans may not like it because it does not fit into the box they call CSI but that does not make it less of a gem. The audience has to be prepared to allow the creative team to take a leap and we have leap with them or we will all get bored. I do not want the writers, actors, directors and producers to get bored because then they may loose their desire to make the show. Stale bread is not so delicious and if you add some spice it makes for a great new taste treat. So go on let the team try new roads, new ideas... not all will be gems but at least the team won't get stale.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: Warrick states that you can't legally buy a silencer. Not true. A silencer can be legally purchased providing the proper forms are completed with the ATF.

    • Goof: When Warrick, Sara, Grissom and Catherine are discussing the killer in the conference room, Warrick's wedding band is on his right-hand ring finger, not his left.

    • Goof: When Dr. Robbins removes a bullet from Clayton Nash, he places the bullet in an envelope. They next show Bobby removing said bullet from the envelope. Now there is a piece of red tape on that envelope where there was none when Dr. Robbins placed the bullet inside.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Trent: We texted each other (mimes texting) uh, texting, it's um, when you send little messages on a cellphone-
      Brass: (dryly) Yeah, I know what texting is.

    • Hodges: Yeah, but the car you're looking for is also a piece of crap.
      Sara: Make and model I get, but unless you have a new test that quantifies "crappiness"...
      Hodges: Take a look.

    • Grissom: So he burns the evidence near a junk yard so that they'll find it and dispose of it. Clever.
      Sara: Looks like we're dealing with a professional.
      Grissom: Professional what though? Ally Sullivan was killed over a fender bender.
      Sara: You're right, he probably just loved his car and has a really bad temper.

    • Greg: Every time I come to the desert I see porno mags. Who brings spankables out here?
      Nick: It's probably just trash... blown in from off the street.
      Greg: Porn isn't trash. They're heirlooms that you pass down.

    • Warrick: One thing for sure the killer is lugging around some pretty big dogs. (looks at a large boot print in the carpet)

    • Karl: Hey officer, I'm gonna make your day.

    • Grissom: I think you just broke the case, Nick.

    • Karl: So tell me where I went wrong?
      Grissom: You killed two people.

    • Bus Driver: He came out of the desert like Moses himself.

    • Brass: Hello, rapist.
      Trent: Man, I am not a rapist, I was a date rapist, which is not the same thing, and besides that was when roofies were in.
      Brass: Missing the action of the good old days, huh?

    • Greg: Assuming it's our guy.
      Nick: Oh, I think it's our guy, he just gave us the finger.
