    Well, if im totally honest, my mind wandered several times throughout this episode, perhaps because i was spending my time on here whilst watching it, or perhaps because it just wasn't a decent enough episode.

    Boone from Lost makes an appearance, and he seems to have been shot during a robbery of his club, while two of his friends are dead.

    The team become suspicious of him, and discover that he killed his two friends, and his lawyer walked in on it (cant remember how the CSIs found this out), and then the lawyer shot him to make it looks like a robbery.

    However, because hes such a rich, spoilt guy, his family will pay his bail, and he won't be prosecuted, and the lawyer will get away with it too.moreless

    A masked man came in shooting leaving two owners dead and one wounded. The wounded man was shot twice. Once in the shoulder and once in the chest. The victims were Coc addicts. The wounded man knows more than what he is putting forth. A drug dealer believes to have shot the men. They fought over cocaine because one of the men stole it from the club. Come to find out the wounded man shot both of them and he called in his lawyer to help him cover it all up. He finally confessed when Horatio had him. . .moreless
