CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Sex, Lies and Larvae - S1-E10

Corrected entry: In the flashback scene, where we see the abusive husband shooting his wife in the head against a wall in their home, Sarah and Grissom do not discover any plastering or other repair to the wall (although they do discover the victim's blood). However, during the victim's autopsy scene, we learn that the shot to the victim's head was through-and-through. (This is an important plot point, since it means that the bullet's distinctive composition is not immediately discovered.) Wouldn't the bullet have gone into the wall? Is there any realistic way the murderer could have repaired the damage without Sarah or Grissom discovering it?

Correction: The blood spatter went on the wall from the exit wound BUT the woman's husband shot her in the temple, right to left, (as Doc Robbins said) so it's possible that the bullet went somewhere else other than the wall.

Mistakes

In a number of episodes people are shown eating and drinking in the laboratories. For instance, in "Miss Willows' Regrets" Nick and Greg are seen eating fried chicken in the lab, and in "Overload" Sara eats a sandwich while watching Grissom experiment with her deli pickle. There are other examples. No reputable laboratory (which this is supposed to be) would allow its staff to eat or drink while in the lab. It is basic scientific protocol to prevent contamination of samples or the person picking up toxins on their food.
