* That Ancient Greek coin in ''CSINewYork'' was found north of Nicosia- i.e. in Northern Cyprus. Why did Stella offer it back to the Greeks? As she's a Greek-American, I'd understand her not giving it to Northern Cyprus, but surely she could have gone to the Cypriot Consulate unless there is something in Greek antiquities law I'm missing.
** She only went to confirm its authenticy not return it. She only brought a picture and the Greek Consulate is more likely to have Greek history experts i.e. the one she was meeting.

** At least they dis better with Mac. Although they still went slightly fast,it wasn't as bad. They did,though,miss a big opportunity to have the aphasia return during the crossover,since fear or anger can make it re-emerge. It was likely to avoid having to explain it to the CSI fans who didn't watch, but still...



** I'm waiting to see what happens if they manage another season and show Mac's wedding...how much do we want to bet Stella's tied up majorly and can't get to town? *sigh*

* The homicide motive from the episode "One Wedding and a Funeral"; [[hottip: synopsis with unmarked spoilers : the caterer offs the groom (who was also a friend/tormentor while they were growing up) when the groom calls him away from his child's birthday to change the catering menu the day before the wedding. A) The menu would have been finalized months earlier with a card inserted in the invitations so guests can decide what they want to eat, and B) Where's the bride in all of this; it's her wedding too? I can't see a bride, especially with the elaborate wedding that was planned, being out of the loop when it came to the menu (especially changes to it).]]

Added DiffLines:

* Mac is a pretty "By the Book" type - so why does he not mention his aphasia at the start of the last Season? Granted he doesn't often get into life or death situations, but if he did (and in CSI world, it's pretty likely) then his inability to say something more concisely than "He's hiding behind the... errmm, it's a sort of picture but in three dimensions, so you go that way and I'll go this side and catch him in the errmmm... you know where two people fire from two directions at somebody else? Yeah, one of them!" Mac's not letting on could potentially endanger lives, so concealing his disability (even if it is only temporary) is selfish at best and villainous at worst. I'm sure the NYPD would pension him off with full medical benefits (he was shot and nearly died in the line of duty and has multiple commendations).

** Considering they gave similar short shrift to Flack's near-death subplot between Seasons 2 and 3, one should not really be that surprised.

** The Season 3 opener did it too. A crime at the Statue of Liberty=National Parks police jurisdiction.

* The fact that Christine was sitting alone in her restaurant after closing, but hadn't locked the door up yet. Isn't that usually the first thing a business owner or manager does after close, especially in a big city like that? And Mac couldn't have called ahead and told her he was coming, to unlock the door, because she hadn't been answering his calls. It would have made it way too easy for the kidnapper let their help in to grab her if they were working late and knew she didn't always lock that door. She just better get Mac a key and lock the place after close, or she'll be lucky not to get into more trouble in there. (yes, it was probably just a writer oversight, but some of the fans took notice).
