The final episode of CSI's 6th season will put one of its main characters in a hospital bed and the rest in an emotional rollercoaster.
In "Way To Go," Grissom and the team continue investigating the events from the previous episode, "Bang, Bang." Janice Cutler has been found dead in her home, and the evidence points to her husband, Willie Cutler, as the killer. Cutler's visit to one of the Las Vegas casinos turns into a nightmare when he takes a woman hostage and locks himself into one of the hotel rooms. Now, the investigators work quickly to figure out if Cutler worked alone or had a partner, but their investigation might cost them the life of a dear friend.
Detective Jim Brass has managed to convince Willie to let him in the hotel room. Brass is serving as negotiator, but Willie isn't too responsive. Between Brass's questions, his panicked hostage, and the traumatic events of the night before, Willie is having a hard time remaining calm. But Brass does, and reassures Willie he's merely looking for answers. Willie reveals he did, in fact, have a partner, but the news may not be of use to Brass, as Willie quickly turns the gun on the detective and fires twice.
"Way To Go," opens with Brass, who is trying to stay awake as he's rushed to the hospital. His bullet proof vest has caught one of the bullets, but the second one entered through the axilla, hit an artery and is lodged near his heart, and the detective is losing blood faster than the doctors can aid him. Meanwhile, Sofia manages to get a hold of Ellie, Brass's daughter, but Ellie isn't concerned about her father's condition – she's more curious about the contents of Brass's will. Sofia is shocked about Ellie's heartless reaction; the team isn't.
At the hospital, Grissom inquires about Brass's condition. Having Brass's power of attorney, the investigator quickly becomes aware he'll be forced to make a crucial, if not fatal decision: the doctors might be able to save Brass's life if they remove the bullet, but in the process he could bleed out or have a stroke. The other option, not doing the surgery, might cause the bullet to migrate into his artery and also a stroke. The surgeon tells Grissom he has a decision to make, but his choice might ultimately end up killing his best friend.
While Brass's life hangs in the balance, the CSIs investigate the murder of Charles Carson. Carson was discovered by a train conductor, unfortunately, under regrettable circumstances. The driver spotted Carson's body lying on the train tracks, but too late for him to be able to stop the train. Carson was decapitated in the tracks, but further evidence suggests Carson was dead way before the train rolled over him. Carson also has a very peculiar body type: his waist is way smaller than the average man's. The investigation reveals Carson worse corsets on a regular basis. Could this murder have something to do with his lifestyle?
