Episode Summary

EDIT
The CSI's are called out to investigate the disappearance of a boy whose father died four years ago. Soon a couple is arrested at a convenience store with a boy matching the description of the missing kid. The only problem is they both claim it is their son. Both parents have exactly the same picture of the boy, with a scar on exactly the same place on his face. They hope a DNA-test could confirm who the real parents are, but when this information comes to light, it lead to another bizarre twist, possibly murder.moreless

  • Grissom and his team are called to a park where a military widow claims her son was kidnapped. After giving a description of the kidnapper, a suspect is arrested and the boy is found case closed. Or is it?moreless

    This episode was fantastic. It's an example of why I am a CSI fan. Very well written and acted. Plausible through out and just plain entertaining. The brief side story about Gil Grissom's father does not get in the way of the main story which is great because many times we see subplots get in the way or overshadow the main plot. The conclusion is not something that I saw coming and I don't think many other people will either. Definitly one of the season's best.moreless
  • This was very painful to watch - I hope the poor parents who were the real victims sued the CSI for millions of bucks. And how can they make a psycho woman the victim here? Sorry hormones or not - this is indefensible to kill a child!moreless

    This was very painful to watch - I hope the poor parents who were the real victims sued the CSI for millions of bucks. And how can they make a psycho woman the victim here? Sorry hormones or not - this is indefensible to kill a child! She destroyed her child - she totally destroyed his grandparents and if this were Ghost Whisper the hubby would come back to exact his revenge! My only problem with this series is that they go head on destroying peoples lives - but we never get to see if yhey get a comeupance most especially my least favorite character Sara - suicidal! So sorry to see she is coming back!moreless
  • Karen reports her son, Jesse has been kidnapped from the park. The CSIs are called in to investigate...

    Karen reports her son has been kidnapped from the park and actually her son is already dead. She killed her own son!! She used the pictures on the internet to fake Jesse's picture. What an odd person! However, this episode is good. The best episode so far in this season. I like how they investigate the case, especially after another couple accused that the young boy is theirs.



    I think I know why David Rambo, the writer of this episode is so famous. The episodes he written are good, interesting and exciting. Compared this episode to the season 5 episode "Big Middle", "Weeping Willows". It's a very huge different. I love this episode so much!moreless
  • A woman reports her son missing, and the CSIs follow the trail to a couple at a convenience store with a boy who matches the description of the missing kid. The couple claim he's their son. DNA tests confirm that the kid is the son of the couple.moreless

    When the CSIs dig a little deeper (both literally and figuratively), they find the son, Jesse, buried in the backyard. The woman, in a fit of psychosis, had killed her son with drugs directly after her husband's funeral. Her husband had worked in the millitary, and had been killed on duty in Afghanistan. The woman, Karen, did not want a life in the millitary for her Jesse, so she had used her own prescription anti-psychosis drugs to murder him. After his death, Karen continued to pretend Jesse lived in her house. She did finger paintings, prepared breakfast for him (also messed it up to make it look like a 6-year-old had a tantrum), and had picnics at the park with him.



    I think this episode was one of the most creative yet far-fetched installments on CSI. The storyline was extremely well written, and the actors/actresses were amazing. Overall, SUPERB!moreless

    So you've all herd of imaginary friends....well what about imaginary sons? This girl is crazy every day she "pretends" that she has a son! Well she really did have a son but she went crazy and killed him when he was like four. So this huge search goes on looking for a kid thats dead! But she is like crazy so she has pictures of this like other kid and they have to DNA match and stuff. If you ask me that chick was just stright up crazy and needs to be put in a physco ward. She has medication but im pretty sure shes not using it!moreless
