Built to Kill, Part 1 is the first episode of the seventh season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. It it the first part of a two-part story continuing in Built to Kill, Part 2.

Synopsis Edit

Foul play is suspected when an apparent suicide victim still has the gun in his hand, and a flower delivery woman is found crushed to death in the middle of a Cirque du Soleil performance.

Plot Edit

When an ambitious dancer is killed, the CSI team must learn the inner workings of the famous show by Cirque Du Soleil to find out who killed her. Two other team members investigate the apparent suicide of a man at a party hosted by Sam Braun. Brass receives the Medal of Valor for the bullet he took and the hostage he saved in the season 6 episode "Bang-Bang". After the case is solved and closed, Catherine and Nick go out for a dance, while Grissom and Sara investigate a murder. Catherine, at the bar, returns to her drink while Nick dances with a young blonde. The bartender informs Catherine that a young man wishes to buy her next drink; she refuses, and everything blurs for her and goes black. She then wakes up in a hotel room, naked, and begins to process herself and the room; she takes a shower, and cries. The end of the episode also shows the beginning of the murder scene of rock 'n' roll star, Izzy Delancy (played by Danny Bonaduce). Grissom also discovers that the murder scene has been made into a smaller miniature model, identical to the murder scene itself. The scene also cuts to Brass in a tattoo parlour, having the date of his shooting (May 11, 2006) tattooed just below the scar of the bullet. At the end of the episode John Mayer plays his single Waiting on the World to Change in a bar. At the very end, he is also heard playing Slow Dancing In A Burning Room, another song from his 2006 album, Continuum. The end of this is heard at the beginning of the next episode.
