  • In the 300th episode, "Frame By Frame", Sara comments that Gwen might still be alive if they had solved the Darcy Blaine case fourteen years earlier. It later turns out she's right, but not for the reason she thinks. If they had solved the Darcy Blaine case, they would have discovered she had faked her death, negating the need for Gerry hiring Gwen and Emily to break into Jack's mansion to steal the evidence of such. Gwen and Emily might have worked out their boyfriend issues more peacefully in another environment.

  • Throughout the franchise, the tech and techniques that the CSI teams use seem rather...out there in terms of things (like how high tech the labs look, the powerful camera filtering software, etc). It makes a tad more sense when you realize that they could easily all just be getting good tech because how well the teams are. These are people with 90% perfect records in terms of who they arrest and how they do it. They are likely being rewarded with a better budget in some cases.

How well does it match the trope?
