Happenstance is the eighth episode in the seventh season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.


The CSIs investigate the death of two identical twins within a two hour time frame, on opposite sides of town. When the team discovers that the twins knew nothing of each other, they begin to wonder if the two cases are connected, or just a very bizarre coincidence.

Catherine: Well, I got a phone and keys, but no purse.
Nick: Mugging?
Catherine: Take the purse but leave the Lexus?
Nick: Yeah, that's not real savvy, is it?


  • On one version of the CSI DVD sets released, this episode says it has commentary by Eva La Rue (who stars on CSI: Miami), on the inside and on the disc itself, however, on the back of the DVD case where it lists all the episodes that have commentary, this one is not included, nor does it give you that option when watching the episode. It wouldn't make sense any way since she does not appear in the episode.
  • Hodges refers to the victim's car as having been damaged by "the sabra's key". "Sabra" is a term used to describe a native-born Israeli (Natal, in this case); it literally means "prickly pear."
  • In the beginning, Grissom is looking at a letter that mentions an entomology seminar and it suggests that he take a sabbatical. This foreshadows William Peterson leaving the show in order to star in a play for three episodes.
