- Can't suffer in jail if you're dead
- Better to Die than Be Killed — assuming the attempted murder of Brody, the murder of her boyfriend/"kidnapper" and her mother, and whatever else happened in the episodes I missed is enough to earn the death penalty
- If he kills her he'll feel enough guilt to kill himself, and if he doesn't he'll have to suffer with the knowledge that he failed his daughter so badly forever
- Killing her will "square" her killing her mother
- Is really just tired of living, the above reasons are just a bonus
- Gas? What gas? The team Hummer has undergone conversion to run on alcohol— takes about ten minutes with a needle-nose pliers and a stiff wire.
- CSI:Miami's actors have claimed that the Miami spinoff is a "comic book world".
- That would make all of the shows comic books, since they've all crossed over.
- Maybe this is also why the Crime Lab people have so much more power (in terms of jurisdiction) than their contemporary counterparts do.
- Bizarrely, this makes a lot of sense.
- Remember also that in the CSI-verse, the Cumbre Vieja volcano did explode, causing a megatsunami that flooded Miami. The Canary Islands probably don't exist anymore.
- The hundred-bullet gun is a real concept with working prototypes. The fact that only prototypes exist now in Real Life, however...
Consider CSI: NY's hologram room and the examples above. It's all a result of the SGC slowly leaking advanced technology into the public sphere.
- Perhaps it takes place in the SG:A alternate universe in which one Detective Sheppard investigated a series of murders committed by a Wraith in Las Vegas.
- That would explain how they can afford to build spaceships and set up bases on alien worlds. That would show up in the budget unless someone set up companies to sell alien-derived tech.
- The vampire fans' scars looked like suckers.
- Now she's back.
- Still, the obvious tension between them in the opening of S10E03 adds weight to this, even if Ecklie was the one to bring her back in. After all, he's been gunning for her ever since Season Five, when the only thing stopping him getting rid of her was Grissom's refusal to fire her. At this point, he wants to humiliate her.
Sara Sidle is also a superhero. She, however, refuses to accept her powers, which is why she is alternately fascinated by and despising Grissom. Eventually, this leads to her breakdown and departure.
Grissom also eventually leaves to attempt to help her come to grips with her powers. Since his superpower is competence, he succeeds.
- Adding to the above theory, the CSIs are orphan's of Wammy's House.
- Gil Grissom = G.
- Catherine Willows = C.
- Nick Stokes = N.
- Greg Sanders = S.
- Riley Adams = R
- Sara Sidle = S2.
Warrick Brown = W.
- Jim Brass = J.
- Al Robbins = A.
- David Hodges = D.
- Horatio Caine = H.
- Calleigh Desquene = CD.
- Eric Delko = E.
- Ryan Wolfe = W.
- Frank Tripp = F.
- Natalia Boa Vista = V.
- Mac Taylor = T.
- Stella Bonasera = B.
- Danny Messer = M.
- Dr. Sheldon Hawkes = Dr.
- Donald Flack Jr. = DF.
- Lindsay Monroe = LM.
- Jennifer Angell = JE.
- Never sweats in any heat. No voice inflection. Conveys an attitude of smug superiority and general contempt for mankind. Stiff and humorless personality. And he creepily materializes out of thin air.
- So that's why Morpheus went to Las Vegas: he wants to pump Catherine Willows for info!
- This simply has to be canon. He even looks exactly like the agents did in the first movie, redheaded and extraordinarily pale despite living in a constantly sunny locale.
- Wait, wait, if that's the case, then how do you explain the events from "Grave Danger"?
- Someone had a feud with the CSIs because they jailed his relative. Or there's more than one group of assassins in town.
It explains the more advanced technology.
The reason CSIs do so much multitasking fieldwork, interviews, and interrogations is that the Las Vegas lab is a training/recruiting center for The Men in Black that cover up this secret. Grissom leaves the lab because he's been recruited. Ecklie's in on the secret; his usual actions are Obfuscating Dickery.
- With the appearance of Angela's dad on Miami, it's also part of the Bones universe.
Many years later, in an episode called "Death and the Maiden," a boy was raped. Even though Nick took the lead in the case, he never mentioned that he was raped, even though it would have been beneficial to do so at several points. But he did say, "If I were Tommy, I'd of killed him too."
He was in a similar position to Tommy once. Therefore, Nick did kill that babysitter. He did not bring up the rape during this case because he was afraid people would finish the parallel.
- Er, nope...we're pretty sure of that even though her end hasn't aired yet.
- Was it a coincidence that Catherine almost started a relationship with FBI Agent Mc Quade in Zippered, and then at the end of that same season resigned so she could join the FBI, I think not.
- Alternately, Nick will return to the lab as a supervisor post-series and he and Cathererine will declare their love finally.
The CSIs are so dependent on where the evidence takes them that they miss the things that the viewers are meant to catch.
- Los Angeles. It's where all the cool large procedural agencies have branches. NCIS is there, L.A. Law was there, Law & Order: LA was there — even Columbo was there. But that might be a bit close to Las Vegas...
- Washington, DC. A coastal city, perhaps a little close to NYC, but it would be fun. Or maybe Baltimore — that is another popular place for procedurals.
- Rochester, Minnesota.
- Rochester, New York. If Los Angeles would work, so would this.
- Chicago. Lots of shows there, but few criminal procedurals, and we want something more uplifting than The Chicago Code.
- Dallas. One in Texas would make a nice genre change — dragging police work into the 22nd century...
- Louisville, Kentucky. Much bigger and darker than it looks on Derby Day. May have some of the benefits of Dallas.
- Or maybe another country? Law & Order has a UK version, so why not CSI too? Or would The BBC sue them for copying Waking the Dead?
Close. It's actually Roz from Frasier.
- With Lindsey a CSI also, it can be a next gen sequel series.
- It stands to reason they wouldn't want a parent and child working as supervisor and subordinate, just as they didn't want a dating couple in that position and made Sara change shifts. Either Lindsey or Catherine would have wound up on days or swing if the show had gone on.
- It's set after TGP. He became human and took the job as a way to do his old job ethically with a rule system that's actually fair.
