Nothing special about the story, except the monks.. Also I liked military contacted Grissom and offered satelite images, that scene was cool.

Here in this chapter we can see how many evidences they can found in one single place. My gosh, I hope we can get so many evidences in real life.

Not bad. But I guess easily who was the killer. I like also the part where the killer explain why he did shot between the eyes.

Nothing spectacular about this episode except for Mark Dacascos guest starring. He's a champion martial artist and I think he should have busted out and kicked the living crap out of someone, why? Cuz the episode was alittle boring at times.

Huh..I actually happen to like this episode. The story was so sad and the talk between Griss and the monk was great.
