Recap

This week’s second part of the two part season finale opens with serial killer Nathan Haskell being brought to the police station. Once there he explains that he had something from Jekyll in his belongings that are locked up in evidence. When the team looks through his items they find a piece of bowtie pasta with a spaghetti bow tied on it.

In further talking to Haskell he explains that he met Jekyll ten years before at a restaurant. After some research the team is led to a closed down restaurant where they find pictures of three of the Jekyll victims on the wall confirming that Haskell is telling the truth.

Upon research of the restaurant, the team finds all the owners are dead under unusually circumstances. Ray returns to speak to Haskell bringing a list of employee names.  Haskell trades favors for a name from the list that turns out to be a dead end lead. At the same time Ray receives a package that is labeled as being from his father who has been dead for 10 years. Upon investigating the package they find more clues inside including a link to a “John Doe” that died months ago. It appears that this John Doe was intended to be one of Jekylls victims. Back at the restaurant Greg and Sara confirm that the kitchen area of the closed restaurant has had human blood.

Upon investigating the remaining items in the package to Ray the team determines that Jekyll is tipping them to how he is going to kill his next victim. This allows the team to narrow down their search to certain restaurants. Ray and Nick visit one restaurant and find the owner having pain consistent with the tip that Jekyll gave them. Catherine calls to say that the appendix recovered from Jekyll’s second victim is either from the father or son of Jekyll.

The owner’s son had just gone to the back and Nick sends the uniformed officer to the back to see where the owner’s son went and there is gun fire. Ray attempts to get the owner out of the restaurant as Nick heads to the back. The son comes out shooting a shotgun and Nick is hit and goes down, while Ray and the owner (the shooters father) hide behind some cover.  The son admits that he is Dr Jekyll and is doing all of this just to watch his father die a painful death.

Meanwhile, Haskell provokes the officer watching him so he has a reason to fall down as he falls down he breaks his glasses and palms a piece of from the frame. Back at the restaurant Ray is talking to Jekyll and after a few minutes Ray sees that Nick is only playing dead and is away and now has his gun. Ray then baits Jekyll out and Nick shoots him.

Nick and Dr Jekyll’s father both survive. Ray goes to visit Haskell in jail to tell him that the case is over; as he is leaving Haskell grabs him and stabs him repeatedly with the sharpened piece of his eye glasses and the show ends with Ray lying on the floor bleeding.

the most enjoyable part of watching csi is the creation of so many different ways for murder. many of them would require very intelligent planning and the means to carry them out. the bottom line is that all 3 csi are worth their salt in whodunnit. and the technology in the labs are quite unbelievable.
may the series carry on and on and on...

Fishburne has no humour in the show, and it is now a miserable shadow. Grissom would smile, langston is beeing pushed through the ranks to fast to make it believable. Sorry but as much as I like Fishburne he is not right for this show, as rating will show!

I watched the show for season 10 and frankly am trying to figure out how Fishburne playing a CSI 1 in the beginning not knowing how to finger print has become the show. I have slowly lost interest in the show since Grissom left, but wanted to give it a chance. If there is a season 11, I think they will have to bring Grissom back or its all over.

This was a very flat, predictable and disappointing finale for season 10 from a show that once left all others in its shadow. The serial killer was an empty balloon, and as you said, once they turned the story back to "all Langston, all the time"--I lost interest! Marg, Eric, and Jorja are shadows of their characters. At times Marg's expression could be one of "I'm counting the minutes until I'm out of here". Maybe we should start a campaign "Make Nate a Hero!" And if this is the best, or second best, writing of the season--it's time to turn out the light and close the door on CSI.

Here's the problem. Had they left Nick's survival in question, the fan forums would be buzzing today. But the writers turned the focus back to Ray and no one cares. Most of the comments are about what a great job George Eads did but that the reason d'etre for this serial killer was pretty stupid. The other reason this is a non-cliffhanger ending is that it was announced Fishburne renewed for season 11 so we know Ray survives. Eads' contract, on the other hand, is not finalized. The writers missed a big opportunity there and would have been rewarded with far more fan involvement and curiosity about the season 11 premiere.
