Previously on CSI
, the team looked into a murder case about a successful cowboy who turned up dead only hours after getting thrown from a bull. Three months after CSI
aired its last episode "Bull," the forensic drama returns with new episodes beginning on April 3. Meanwhile, here are some spoilers to ease the long wait.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
continues the eighth season with the 12th episode called “Grissom's Divine Comedy” where the team must solve a murder mystery within 52 hours or else, the accused goes free.
According to CSI Files
, the first new episode produced since the writers' strike ended revolves around the burned body of Dan Cook, a guy who runs a vending machine business with his wife. Upon investigating the crime scene, the team discovers three letters that are painted on the victim's car's rear bumper, which become significant when the team find out that Cook was planning to testify in front of a grand jury about a murder that was allegedly committed by Jose Alvarado, a high profile member of the La Tijera gang. Unfortunately, Cook was brutally murdered before he can tell his story under oath.
During the autopsy, the team discovers that Cook had been shot, which means that fire wasn't the cause of his death. They also find a gun while processing what remains of the Cook's car's glove compartment, which surprisingly belongs to Cook's father-in-law. They question him, but he denies killing his son-in-law.
Now that Cook is dead, the CSIs are in a race against time to prove that the crime was committed by the accused Alvarado, who is also associated with a number of murders, or else he will go free and cannot be retried.
