We skim over what's left of the old-school casinos downtown
-- the FOUR QUEENS, the GOLDEN NUGGET -- before swooping in
on the SILVER SANDS RETIREMENT COMMUNITY.
INT. SILVER SANDS - ACTIVITIES ROOM - CONTINUOUS
A low-end old-folks home, Vegas-style. Wizened showgirls in
full makeup sit with geriatric card sharks at a couple of
folding tables, drinking and playing blackjack.
Frank and Dino hold sway on the beat-up hi-fi as two
twentysomething AIDES in borrowed smoking jackets deal.
CASSIE RAE SPARKS (77), a vision in chartreuse eyeshadow and
the kind of skin that only comes with seven decades of sun-
worship, counts out a stack of chips while clamping down
Next to her sits JOLENE DAVIES (75), sickly, but still
working what little she's got left. Her WALKER rests against

She pushes the chips into the center of the makeshift
The aide puts two cards down on the table and flips the first
one over -- it's an ACE OF CLUBS. Cassie nods approvingly.
He flips the next card -- a QUEEN OF HEARTS.
Cassie Rae CACKLES and pulls in her heap of chips.
Cassie Rae shuffles down the dingy rest home hallway.
She reaches a door at the far end of the hall and KNOCKS.
Cassie Rae KNOCKS again as she turns the knob. It CLICKS

WARRICK snaps pics of the DB as Grissom and Brass enter.
The fluorescent light overhead begins to BUZZ and flicker.
Warrick reaches up and knocks it with his fist.
Grissom takes it all in -- silk brocade bedspread, the

CRICOID CARTILAGE and RIPS INTO his CAROTID ARTERY before
BURSTING OUT the back of his neck, SLICING THROUGH the
mattress and SLAMMING INTO the linoleum floor.

Warrick bends down to check under the bed.
He rises, holding out the GUN -- a gorgeous old Colt with a

An unseen attacker bursts through the door and catches Jin-Ah
washing out a footbath at one of the manicure stations.
She starts to turn around, but with a swift, sharp blow to
the skull, she collapses and falls to the floor.
Sara leans in to take a close-up of the wound.
In the FLASH, we see a glint of RED.
With a fine-toothed comb and a pair of tweezers, he starts
picking through Jin-Ah's hair. Nothing at first, but then .
Nick plucks something from the strands and holds it up to the

Something catches Cassie Rae's eye across the room -- Jolene

Cassie motions across the room to the aide we saw dealing
Cassie Rae takes a deep breath. Exhales. She doesn't want to

Grissom takes a spray bottle of GUNPOWDER REAGENT from his

He mists Johnny's chest and arms with the liquid.
Johnny looks nervously at Brass, who nods. Grissom picks up
his ALS and wands it over where he's just sprayed.
What little color was in Johnny's face just drained out.
He doesn't move -- he's in absolute shock.

Warrick takes the box from Gino Dezzutti's nightstand out of
its evidence bag and sets it on the examination table.
He's about to open it when Grissom pokes his head in.
Warrick opens the box. We see the impression in the blue
brocade cushioning inside -- it's made to hold a handgun.
Warrick feels around the edge of the padding. It's loose. He
lifts it up -- there's a compartment beneath.
He scoops out the contents -- a stack of old PHOTOGRAPHS.

jacket, with a beautiful, exquisitely attired woman on each

Grissom enters. IRA GOULD (85), not as well-groomed as his
erstwhile neighbor but still pretty sharp for an
octogenarian, sits in front of the TV. A large plastic

Warily, Catherine obliges. They peer out onto the street,
where two OLD MEN wait patiently by the curb.
Eventually a white TOYOTA CAMRY pulls up and one of the men
Catherine sees Kelly's point. Grudgingly.

A large PURPLE CIRCLE swings from its gate.

A furious Cassie Rae stands over Gino's bed, shaking her head
as they argue, POINTING at the gun in his hand.
She puts her hand around his, points the gun at his neck and

The tears are welling in Cassie Rae's eyes.
She composes herself. The bare minimum.
Cassie Rae breaks into long, raspy SOBS.
