Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Heading the unit in Grissom's (William L. Petersen) absence, Warrick (Gary Dourdan) is all but overwhelmed by his new responsibilities. Warrick's biggest headache occurs during the investigation of the drug-related murder of a con artist (John Fugelsang). As the clues are assembled, a prime suspect emerges: Ellie Brass (Nicki Aycox) -- the spiteful and rebellious daughter of former CSI head Capt. Jim Brass (Paul Guilfoyle). Compared to this development, Sara's (Jorja Fox) investigation of a counterfeiting ring is practically a walk in the park...practically.
