    Apparently there is a flashback with Natalie and Ernie Dell- when he tells Natalie he's going to end her killing people, by killing himself. Evidently (Yes, a Grissom word :p) she doesn't understand that, and that is the reason why she started targetting Grissom, blaming him for the murder of Ernie. (Also, there is supposed to be some sexual attraction between those two.. She kisses him, and says she loves him or something, I think)

    ETA: Not between Grissom, and Natalie :p

    :lol: That's why I made sure I edited my post, so see above.

    And she kisses Ernie in a flashback :)

    Of course, it could've been re-written- so we'll see when it airs.

    Note that there is a set of links below the cast, the second one leads to the slightly more indepth Spoiler for this episode in the CSI Files news section. We do point out the disclaimer of the spoiler.

    Please note that the above plot details have not been confirmed by CBS, Alliance Atlantis or Bruckheimer Films, and until such time you should treat this information as you would any other rumour. The above information comes from early script drafts and the details of the episodes are liable to change before the episodes are shown.

    For anyone interested, the song the "doll" was singing in one of the promos is:

    " A little bisque doll and a little rag doll
    And a dolly imported from France
    Were sitting one day on the shelf of the store
    With a doll that could wind up and dance;
    When all of a sudden the shopkeeper heard
    A scream that rang out thro' the store,
    And this was the plaint of the little bisque doll
    That made such an awful uproar;

    I've got a pain in my sawdust,
    That's what's the matter with me;
    Something is wrong with my little inside,
    I'm just as sick as can be.
    Don't let me faint, someone get me a fan,
    Someone else run for the medicine man,
    Ev'ryone hurry as fast as you can,
    I've got a pain in my sawdust.

    They took her away in a hospital van
    And the whole town was filled with the blues,
    For ev'ryone thought it was quite an odd thing,
    And the papers all printed the news;
    The surgeons looked wise and they all shook their heads
    And asked her just where she was sick;
    "I think it's 'appendisawdust'," she exclaimed,
    "And won't you please do something quick?"

    I've got a pain...

    Oh, sad was the day for the little bisque doll,
    For they cut all her stitches away,
    And looked for the seat of the terrible ache;
    "'Twas a delicate task," they all say,
    For none of the surgeons had ever before
    Performed on a dolly's inside,
    They tried to restuff her but didn't know how,
    And this was her wail as she died;

    I've got a pain... "

    Just for anyone interested :D

    Also, the song "Living Doll" lyrics:

    Got myself a cryin', talkin', sleepin', walkin', livin' doll.
    Gotta do my best to please her, just cos she's a livin' doll.
    Got a rovin' eye and that is why she satisfies my soul.
    Got the one and only walkin', talkin', livin' doll.
    Take a look at her hair, it's real,
    And if you don't believe what I say, just feel.
    I'm gonna lock her up in a trunk, so no big hunk,
    Can steal her away from me.

    Got myself a cryin', talkin', sleepin', walkin', livin' doll.
    Gotta do my best to please her, just cos she's a livin' doll.
    Got a rovin' eye and that is why she satisfies my soul.
    Got the one and only walkin', talkin', livin' doll.


    (instrumental)

    Take a look at her hair, it's real,
    And if you don't believe what I say, just feel.
    I'm gonna lock her up in a trunk, so no big hunk,
    Can steal her away from me.

    Got myself a cryin', talkin', sleepin', walkin', livin' doll.
    Gotta do my best to please her, just cos she's a livin' doll.
    Got a rovin' eye and that is why she satisfies my soul.
    Got the one and only walkin', talkin', livin' doll.

    (I hope I'm allowed to post lyrics to songs.. I mean, they ARE related to the episode?_

    i can't wait for this episode. kinda annoys me that every season finale since season 5 has been with someone from CSI practicly dying.. but hey, i guess it'll be fine. i'm hoping that Nick will try and take the lead of this case because he knows what sara is going through and... BECUASE HE LOVES HER:) tee hee.

    question: who's sara goldfinger? yeah, she's one of the writers but... what ship is she? let me guess.. GSR?

    Ahhhh I'm really excited for the episode now that I see Sarah Goldfinger is a writer. She always writes some of the darker more unique episodes for the show.

    Hey, I was just looking at the body under the red car picture & was wondering why the head is so out of focus. You can't even tell if its a man or a woman. Maybe I'm just clutching at straws.

    I'm not exactly sure what she ships.. I think she ships GSR, but I could be wrong?

    Anyway, you may remember her writing from episodes such as "Rashomama" and "Lab Rats"
