It stays a story of two investigations.
It did not look good for Hodges on CSI: Vegas Season 1 Episode 2 because the proof implicating him stored piling up.
However whereas the previous staff investigated the allegations about their former colleague, the brand new squad had a contemporary case to deal with underneath excessive scrutiny.
Let’s face it: the continued storyline is extra attention-grabbing as a result of it entails the characters that viewers already know (to say “and love” can be a stretch the place Hodges is worried).
Simply to correctly handicap them, politicians and directors round Las Vegas had been warning Maxine to not let Hodges’ previous coworkers anyplace close to the investigation.
A warning which, in fact, they blithely ignored. Maxine and her staff have a day-to-day job to do, which provides Gil, Sara, and Brass loads of wiggle room.
It was laughable to observe Inside Affairs detectives try to determine what they had been taking a look at as they investigated the storage facility supposedly belonging to Hodges.
However as Gil watched them wrestle, he did decide that the staging of the locker was simply too good, with particular touches that might solely have come from Hodges.
Whereas all of the gear might have been bought anyplace, the non-public tchotchkes needed to have belonged to Hodges.
It was encouraging to see that the gossipy, snide Hodges had advanced because of the love of an excellent lady. In fact, being charged and booked was certain to knock the sarcasm out of him as properly.
It was additionally nice that Brass did not hesitate to razz Hodges regardless of his present perilous state of affairs. Extra Brass can solely make issues higher.
Gil famous the non-public objects he had seen led Hodges to do not forget that he had found issues lacking after he and Emma had moved.
Even after Gil and Sara struck out after looking out the storage, Gil nonetheless had his a-ha second seeing the poster for the lacking canine.
Has Grissom all the time been this pedantic? Yeah, yeah, yeah. Comply with the proof.
Sara opted for a extra human path. “Hodges is harmless. Now how can we show it?” In different phrases, the precise reverse strategy to Gil.
Now, the place will the proof that’s the stays of Brewski the canine lead them? Would possibly the blood in his tooth discover a match within the CODIS database?
Maxine appears prepared to working with them, showing above the fray whereas arising with methods of sneaking them each onboard. (There’s in all probability no official position out there for the almost-blind Brass.)
She’s already confirmed that she has no hesitation to contain Sara in a present case since Sara stays credentialed. Sneaking Gil within the backdoor as an entomological specialist was intelligent.
Now that they are making some headway on how, Gil, Sara, and firm now have to start out concentrating on who and why. There are such a lot of potentialities from all these seasons.
Sadly, suspicion of Hodges is making issues tougher for the present staff, because the media and politicians are following their each transfer.
The case of the week felt like classic CSI, with straight-laced folks having fun with a stroll on the wild aspect among the many kink for which Vegas is understood.
It began unhappy when two revered physicians had been gunned down on their wedding ceremony day.
However CSI is rarely that straightforward, is it? Earlier than lengthy, a leaky SUV led to a swingers’ membership and it got here out that the pair had been swingers, together with one in all their colleagues.
Cease me when you’ve heard this earlier than: Somebody was doing one thing upon which society frowns. So in fact there are hidden cameras and they’re being blackmailed.
That is nothing new. CSI itself will need to have used that storyline no less than as soon as a season.
It was a pleasant twist having the apparent villain, the Arab proprietor, eradicated from competition because of his mini-strokes.
Since his assistant Christy had already defined how essential she was to the membership’s operation, it wasn’t an actual shock when it bought revealed she was behind the whole lot.
It was comical to take heed to Gil ooh and ahh over the brand new services, particularly that nifty darkish gentle that Maxine and Hugo had jury-rigged, which just about blew the case extensive open.
It guarantees to be enjoyable with the socially inept Grissom and Hugo work together extra sooner or later.
Now, what to make of Allie and Folsom, this era’s Gil and Sara. She has simply moved in together with her boyfriend. And but, there’s plain sexual pressure between them.
Calling it chemistry can be a stretch, nevertheless, as a result of they’re so awkward collectively. Perhaps they should not preserve getting thrown collectively within the subject.
There was one other younger CSI tech named Penny this trip. Does that imply that Chris Park from CSI: Vegas Season 1 Episode 1 is gone or will the techs simply be rotated? My vote can be for him since he had extra persona.
Hodges taking part in a outstanding position reinforces the significance of the lab techs. Would not it’s nice if Wendy might return? Nevertheless, with the 4 veterans again, there is probably not a expertise finances to point out the lab techs at work.
To revisit the rising assault on the Las Vegas lab, watch CSI: Vegas on-line.
How do you want the brand new Hodges?
How can Gil and Sara proceed their investigation on the down-low?
Who’s behind this assault on the CSI lab?
