Penniless Jeremy Sikes was beaten up, shot and stabbed in an alley after an unlikely massive win in ruthless 'old school' security chief Bobby Esposito's casino. Brilliant day shift CSI Sean Yeager wants the case for a promotion, but is forced to team up with Morgan. D.B.'s wife wants him to retire and buy their Seattle dream house while their son is up for an Indiana basketball scholarship. Suspicion soon falls on the dealer, Kristi Holt, actually Sikes's partner in several robberies. There are also links to hard-handed drug baron Louis Delgado and the pawn shop run by Kyle and Zeke Banks, sons of widow Ruby. Written by KGF Vissers

When the day shift CSI arrives, it is 8:00 AM. He says graveyard shift ended at 6:00 AM. It is unlikely the graveyard shift would have been dispatched to the crime scene. Even if this had been the case, all of the other graveyard shift people and others such as the medical examiner were still on the job to work the case. See more »

Great Episode
31 October 2013 | by lvdavekathSee all my reviews

A talented cast of actors and actresses on this show and the actor playing the homeless guy reminds me a little of Jack Nicholson and all the crazy roles he's played in. It starts off with a homeless guy who gets $200 for pawning a couple of items and takes his luck to the casino. There he goes on an amazing run at the black jack table and in the end, after winning hand after hand, is up $350K. Unfortunately it doesn't take long for him to find out the irony of life. It will take the full team to figure out who and why someone would kill this homeless man and whether or not he cheated to get the $350,000 dollars he won in the first place.
