Air date: Sep 27, 2001

Having resolved the series' first-season cliffhanger with the life-saving gesture of CSI second-in-command Catherine Willows (Marg Helgenberger) (the life saved was that of Catherine's boss, Gil Grissom [William L. Peterson]), CSI: Crime Scene Investigation was able to go off on a new tangent for its second-season opener. The case at hand: the drug-related death of Las Vegas casino executive Tony Braun. Early evidence suggests that Braun OD'ed on heroin, but further investigation reveals that the victim was bound with duct tape just before his demise. Grissom's conclusion: Braun was forced to literally drug himself to death. Originally slated to air on September 20, 2001, "Burked" was moved back one week due to ongoing network coverage of the 9/11 tragedy.

The CSI team investigates when a young coed, about to move back home, disappears without a trace from her campus dorm room. Even more curious, all of the girl's belongings were left behind. This and other baffling clues lead the crew to conclude that the case's solution may lie in the Chaos Theory, wherein seemingly harmless and unimportant events culminate in disaster. Originally scheduled to air on September 27, 2001, this episode was moved back one week due to network coverage of the 9/11 tragedy.

At first, all evidence points to suicide when a construction worker plummets 12 stories to his death. Grissom (William L. Petersen), however, flies in the face of conventional wisdom when he surmises that the victim was murdered -- a verdict staunchly opposed by Sheriff Mobley (Glenn Morshower). Meanwhile, Nick (George Eads) and Catherine (Marg Helgenberger) investigate the death of a teenaged epileptic who was undergoing an unorthodox form of therapy with a female psychologist.

An arrogant high-school football star, known to be an abrasive class clown and a bully, is found murdered in a school bathroom. The CSI team picks through evidence indicating that the boy was murdered in retaliation by one of his put-upon victims. And in another case, Sara (Jorja Fox) and Nick (George Eads) piece together the clues when the decomposed body of an ex-serviceman is found unceremoniously stuffed in a huge bag.

Grissom (William L. Petersen) is skeptical when the former tenant of a blood-spattered, abandoned apartment insists that he has a reasonable explanation for the gory mess -- and that his currently missing girlfriend is off visiting her parents. As expected, the parents claim that they haven't seen their daughter in weeks -- but with no corpse at hand, Grissom may not be able to make his case against the suspect stick. Elsewhere, Catherine (Marg Helgenberger) and Nick (George Eads) are forced to enter into the realm of urban legend when a body dressed in scuba-diving gear is found lodged between two trees near Lake Mead.

Grissom (William L. Petersen), Nick (George Eads), and Sara (Jorja Fox) would seem to have an open-and-shut case on their hands when a suspect is caught burying a body that has been shot three times. But, despite an overwhelming amount of evidence, Grissom doubts that the suspect is the guilty party. And in another development, Catherine (Marg Helgenberger) and Warrick (Gary Dourdan) must determine if a woman found dead in a health spa locker room was a victim of natural causes, murder -- or something else.

The body of a woman who worked as a book restorer for a historical society is found in the metal cage used to protect rare volumes. In their efforts to determine if the death was from natural causes or murder, Grissom (William L. Petersen) and Nick (George Eads) receive unexpected assistance from the woman's autistic co-worker. And Catherine (Marg Helgenberger) and Sara (Jorja Fox) investigate the fatal crash between a train and an SUV, a tragedy that might have been the outgrowth of road rage.

Air date: Nov 15, 2001

A playground sandbox unexpectedly yields the nude body of a woman covered with whip and restraint marks. The ensuing investigation leads a slightly embarrassed Grissom (William L. Petersen) and Catherine (Marg Helgenberger) to an underground fetish club. And in another case, Warrick (Gary Dourdan) and Sara (Jorja Fox) must determine if a fatal shooting occurred during or after a robbery.

Air date: Nov 22, 2001

As usual, one group of CSI members investigates a death, while another group checks up on a second murder. Specifically, Grissom (William L. Petersen), Warrick (Gary Dourdan), and Nick (George Eads) look into a shooting that occurred during a casino heist, while Catherine (Marg Helgenberger) and Sara (Jorja Fox) probe a homicide at a remote desert convenience store. As the team compares notes, it appears as if there is a strong connection between the two crimes.

Heading the unit in Grissom's (William L. Petersen) absence, Warrick (Gary Dourdan) is all but overwhelmed by his new responsibilities. Warrick's biggest headache occurs during the investigation of the drug-related murder of a con artist (John Fugelsang). As the clues are assembled, a prime suspect emerges: Ellie Brass (Nicki Aycox) -- the spiteful and rebellious daughter of former CSI head Capt. Jim Brass (Paul Guilfoyle). Compared to this development, Sara's (Jorja Fox) investigation of a counterfeiting ring is practically a walk in the park...practically.
