CSI: NY: And Here's to You, Mrs. Azrael
Five days after surviving a horrific car accident, the woman who lost control of her car while driving home drunk is murdered in her hospital room shortly after coming out of a coma. Despite being paralyzed from the waist down, the doctors gave the victim a good chance for recovery, so the team must determine who wanted her dead in spite of her prognosis. Meanwhile, Sheldon returns to the hospital where he once worked as a promising surgeon and his investigation opens old wounds that led to his departure and caused him to become a medical examiner.
And Here's to You, Mrs. Azrael
The first and most benign meaning of the title is a pun on Simon and Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson" revised as part of the soundtrack of 1967's The Graduate. The song begins "And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson." The name "Azreal," with some variants, is the name of an archangel commonly known as the Angel of Death, alluding to the Angel of Death killer Beverley Allitt, who murdered four children and injured others in England before she was caught.
