One word sums it all. CSI: NY is back with a vengence baby. Full blown picspam ahead. =)
The episode starts off with this random tv show about a wanted criminal.
Why does she look familiar?
She looks even hotter while carrying a gun (and standing next to the MoAM)
The CSIs and Detectives were all suited up to raid this warehouse where someone reported seeing the wanted criminal. But instead, they found her like this:
So Stella is left with the job of processing the body, while Mac drops in and puts in his smart line or two.
Then we go to the lab, when Danny comes in and *gasp* looks like Lindsay’s mad at him for not remembering her birthday! Omg that is like the ultimate boyfriend sin of all time!!! [Bimbotically intended]
He tried to get down to business
Mac and Flack then follows the evidence found at the scene: a knife belonging to an ex-Navy SEAL. And guess what: one of the assassin’s victims happen to be the ex-Marine’s daddy. Ooh, motive motive.
Apparently he lost his legs in a battle (forgot what already la) and that’s why he is retired from the Navy.
But the guy thought Flack pitied him (Flack claims he was just sizing him up but I know better.) Mac stated that although he didn’t have his legs, he was still a Navy SEAL, and Mac knows he’s capable of doing it. Poor Ex-Navy guy. He’s still quite macho though. He said that he’d hunt down the assassin if he knew who she was, but he’d never be sloppy enough to leave his knife behind. Mac believes him. Because Mac always knows best. Meanwhile, Sid does the um, facial autopsy on the body, which went through loads of plastic surgery. He then discovers that the body was not the female assassin after all. [I sure saw that coming…it wasn’t even halfway through, how can the baddie die so fast?!]
Turns out the body belonged to a lady who was the PA of this lady called Jordan Gates. She works for some important bigwig of NY.
So Ms Gates does the whole I-can’t-believe-she-is-dead expression (not too well actually) and tells the boys that her PA used to frequent this cosplay club, no doubt to escape from all the stress at work. Lol.
While talking to the bartender, suddenly Mac’s Second Life avatar turns up and starts muttering nonsense.
Back at the lab, Lindsay gets her share of the glory when she tracks down the plastic surgeon who modified (so to speak) the dead body to look like the hitwoman.
Mac sends Danny, Lindsay, Flack and Angell on a double date. *snaps out of daydream* To catch the plastic surgeon, that is.
Look what Danny and Lindsay found:
The CSIs process the scene of the clinic, and Sid handles the plastic surgeon’s body. Adam makes a startling discovery (not really, but the way he does it is cute): the hitwoman scours emails for hateful keywords to scout out potential clients.
Hawkes then swoops in with information about feral liquid found at the scene. Mac, illogically genius as always, realises that the hitwoman could be marauding as a sound tech at the event that Ms Jordan Gates is organising. She must be targetting Jordan’s bigwig boss! Oh no, this is a job for…Super Mac! He sends Don and Danny to check out the event.
Obviously, the hitwoman is too smart to be sniffed out like this. She legs it before they even have a chance to see her.
Since the CSIs can’t seem to sniff the hitwoman out, they decide to tangle a carrot in front of her instead. Adam sets a trap for her, and the detectives go undercover to catch her in action.
She loses the funny hat and the stifling coat, and ducks into this abandoned building.
The cat-and-mouse chase continues a couple of suspenseful minutes, until we see her sitting behind a pole.
Mac then approaches her, and has a little chat with her in her dying moments. She expresses no guilt whatsoever for what she’s done. She’s pretty happy to be able to play God. Yikes. Sociopath. Psycho.
In the end, there’s the unnecessary part about Mac finding out that the hitwoman was actually targetting Jordan, and he tells her this. She is *absolutely* horrified.
Whew…the end. Took me long enough to finish this. But I loved this episode. Great comeback from the strike. Loads of thrills and spills. Loads of Flack. Some Flack and Angell. Now, where was Stella all this while? She wasn’t really that much of a central this time, but I was too busy looking out for Flack/Angell. About time CSI: NY got another tough chick like Aiden. Lindsay is not a tough chick, no matter how emotionally lacking she is. She needs meatier storylines instead of being the whiny unsupportive girlfriend. Poor, poor Danny.
