Family Affair is the first episode of the tenth season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.


A young Hollywood actress is killed in what appears to be a simple drunk driving collision, but the team soon suspects that there is more to the case than meets the eye, and a shootout in the crime lab may confirm their suspicions.


Sara returns to help the team with two cases, one involving a famous girl named Olivia Hamilton, who was killed in a car crash. The driver was a stalker and was the top suspect, and he suffered a broken neck and many broken bones, and evidence points to some mysterious men. Greg works on the murder of a man who was found dead in a hotel room. Later, the lab is broken into. Many of the burglars, who were Russians are taken out due to quick mobilization by the CSI team and security, leaving only two lab techs wounded. The one that manages to escape, along with a man driving a van, steals the body from Greg's case, who turns out to be Olivia Hamilton's father. Her father, James Hamilton was a diagnosed Schizophrenic who responded to violent outbursts. Olivia Hamilton was his only child, and she did the best she could taking care of him, but he had been in and out of institutions and on and off the streets for years and their relationship was never made public.


This is the first time, an episode opened on a freeze frame, which the scene soon takes place later on. David walking into the mourge to find bodies tossed around, a sink ruined and then the Russians come out with a body and David manages to subdue one of them and the others leave with Dr. Robbins wondering what was happening. The Russian that David knocked down managed to break free and while David called security, the lone Russian threatened Robbins but was soon knocked out by his crutch. As the Russians moved through the lab, a tech accidentally knocks a Russian over and he tries to shoot him but only gets shot in the shoulder while Catherine moved him out of the way and Langston soon used his karate moves to knock the Russian into a window. As the Russian with the body ran, the other shoots up the lab, wounding a female tech before being shot by security and outside, the last Russian is picked up by a van as Nick and Sara come out and fire guns until the Russians got away.


  • In the opening freeze frame scene, the female lab tech who gets shot and goes through a glass plane is bare handed. Later in the episode, when the scene plays out, she is wearing gloves.
  • In the opening freeze frame scene, Nick is seen firing his usual sidearm at the escape vehicle, the Smith & Wesson SW99. Later, when the scene plays out, he is instead seen firing a Glock 17.
  • When Catherine approaches David in the hallway of the morgue as Tom O'Neal is following Catherine in, David has both hands on an x-ray but in the next shot, he only has one hand.
  • The doctor states that the driver with the broken neck broke his second vertebrea. But the recreation shows the fourth vertebrea being broken.


  • Dr. Al Robbins (shady guys with guns are stealing a corpse): What the hell is going on here?
