    I spent last Wednesday night in the emergency room with my cousin (she just dislocated her knee..nothing super serious) and missed last weeks episode. Hopefully I'll get to see this one. :lol: I can't believe it's episode 20 already. But it looks interesting.

    Thanks for dragging over the link for the preview, from the spoiler thread, Smokey. :)

    Was that a legit episode that was aired? Like did we get to see it or is it one of those cases where we didn't get to see it but it did suppossebly happened? I'm confused. :wtf:

    "Table Stakes" was the one where the brother and sister grifters took over Portia Richmond's house after they killed her...the one where Grissom yelled at Nick for coming into the interrogation room.

    I think (correct me if I'm wrong), Shane was commenting on the play on words, not indicating that this is the case for the episode. Because that one was certainly longer than 7 years ago and the character names don't match up.

    Loved this one! It took me about an extra 20 minutes to watch because I kept rewinding to watch parts again. :lol: Loved seeing the team playing softball at the beginning and the end. Loved Vega's son so much that I don't even mind him and Finn flirting, and I'm looking forward to him being a recurring character. Loved Brass in this one, and Nick was awesome, of course. ;) And DB continues to impress me.

    It was good but not quite great

    Missed Sara and Finn kinda annoyed me

    Glad to see continuity on Vega

    I like that they brought back Enrique

    Greg and the dog :adore:

    Henry had a great day

    Hodges and the opera :lol:, nice to continuity on him going to Italy with mom

    A Grissom mention :thumbsup:

    Can't think of anything else

    I liked this episode better than the last few and I think it was because it really had to do with finding evidence and it was team work. I think this is the first episode that Finn didn't bother me as much and maybe because they actually had her working with the whole team and not just DB most of the episode.

    I do like Det. Moreno (I hope I got that right) and Finn flirting. :lol:

    Hodges is getting nice continuity. And Henry getting the cheers at the end. It cracked me up when Greg yelled to him before he made his hit, "For Science!" :lol:

    Nice that Greg pointed out the differences between Grissom and DB. Nice to hear they still think about him.
    Greg and the dog...lucky dog! :D

    Overall a nice team ep, even though Sara was missing, but again that is due to Jorja Fox's schedule on the show.

    Argh, where was the Grissom mention? How'd I miss it? Grr.

    They cast well, the guy playing Vega's son looked like whoever played Vega. But why wasn't he Vega too?

    Love the Hodges stuff, it was fun.

    The game was fun too...Nick's hot in the uniform :D

    Greg mentioned Grissom to Morgan. Moreno was Vega's stepson, not his biological child.
