Blood, Sweat & Tears - Copyright CBS CBS Wednesday premiered the spectacle-filled trailer for this week's new CSI: New York episode "Blood, Sweat & Tears," in which Mac and the rest of the team take a trip to the circus.

At the start of the episode, a 16-year-old contortionist is found dead and stuffed into a small box washed ashore on a Coney Island beach. Mac and Stella then go to question the victim’s family and their rivals -- trapeze artists who compete for attention as the circus’ main act. Meanwhile, a large pool of blood in a New York apartment leads Danny and Det. Flack to a dead woman disposed of in the building’s trash chute.

The 30-second promo video for the episode can now be downloaded from CBS.com. For those of you on dial-up, here's a transcript of the trailer:
