Whenever CSI runs an episode like this, I have to wonder which came first: the silly title or the plot? There have been quite a few (Felonious Monk, Crate 'n' Burial and Abra Cadaver come to mind) where the writers worked backwards from the title and concocted a convoluted plot to go with it.
Even bad (comparatively speaking) writing on CSI is still better than average (or even good) writing on many other shows. However, that's no excuse to tolerate or condone it. In this case, the plot twists worked out okay, but whether by accident or by design doesn't matter. The only criterion should be the story.
