Rashomama is the twenty-first episode of the sixth season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.


A wealthy but disagreeable prosecutor is murdered at her son's wedding, and the CSI are called in to investigate. However, Nick Stokes's car is stolen with all the evidence inside it, and the case becomes compromised. The CSIs must think back to their investigations as well as search for new evidence to find the killer.


At a wedding, where the groom, Adam Chase and the bride, Jill are being driven away as people that they pass demand the driver to stop the car as Adam's mother, Diane is being dragged. Hours later, at Frank's Diner, Greg and Sara are eating there as it is open 24 hours and cheap, Nick sits next to Sara as his car is seen from a window, but as they talk, a truck blocks the view and after watching the news about the victim, the truck leaves and the car is mysteriously gone. McKeen soon comes and scolds the three about the car as it has all the evidence and it was stolen with many cop cars next to it. After putting a mint in his mouth, McKeen leaves, knocking all the safety cones and speeding away, almost causing a car crash. Nick talks with Jim as Sofia comes up to them as there was no sign of a break in. As they prepared to leave, Nick asks for a ride to the lab.


  • The episode's title is a reference to Rashomon, a movie by Japanese director Akira Kurosawa. The film uses the perspectives of multiple characters to tell the story of a crime, similar to how the CSIs individually remember what they saw at the wedding.
