Three months ago (in the pilot episode), Royce Harmon was murdered and his killer rigged the scene to make it appear as a suicide. Another murder has been committed, with similar evidence, and the killers' extensive knowledge of forensics has left Grissom and his crew bewildered. Meanwhile, Warrick and Nick deal with a case of a man who drove over a cliff in his car and is now unconscious.
The working title of the episode was "Pick Up".
Grissom makes his own fingerprint powder called Red Creeper.
