Fans still wondering whether the CSI team will be reunited for good can rest easily: this season's third episode, "Bite Me," will see all CSIs working closely together to solve the death of a woman whose husband may not be the grieving widower he pretends to be.

According to CSI Files sources, "Bite Me" will open with two parademics arriving at a posh mansion. The second they get out of their ambulance, a man covered in blood stumbles out of the front door towards them -- this is Ray Lester, late 30s, successful businessman. The paramedics rush to help him, but Ray explains that, no, it's his wife Betty who's hurt. She's lying unconscious on the stairwell with two deep wounds in her forehead, and pools of blood having already formed on several of the steps. Betty's eyes stare blankly to the ceiling, and though the parademics try to shock her back to life, soon the flatline on their monitor confirms Betty is too far gone for medical help to be of any use.

Ray Lester is grief-stricken. He still recalls having to tell his daughter Susan years ago about the death of his wife Jackie, Susan's mother. After Ray married Becky, Susan grew to like her so much she called her "mom" and always went to her with boy problems, rather than to her dad. Now Ray will have to tell his teenage daughter she's lost a mother once again.

The CSIs examine the Lester residence and realize the Lester family may not have been as perfect as Ray pretended. When Sara and Grissom discover the two had separate bedrooms, Sara cautions that could simply mean one of them had a snoring problem. But Grissom suggests it could also mean they were suffocating each other, and he just couldn't stand it any more. Sara begins to react, thinking Grissom may be talking about more than just this case -- but then Sara finds a bottle of recently used sexual lubricant, and her professionalism takes over. She realizes sex is somehow part of this case.

The other members of the investigative team begin to pick up on some other disturbing hints. When they find that the blood pools on the stairs have already begun to dry up on the edges, Nick realizes Becky has been dead for at least two hours -- but Ray only called 911 fourty-five minutes ago. And back at the lab, Dr. Robbins discovers that the wounds on Becky's forehead definitely weren't the result of the fall. So who did cause them?

Brass decides to go talk with Becky's father to see if he can shed some light on the state of his daughter's marriage with Ray. Reluctantly, Becky's father confirms that the marriage had been rocky ever since Ray's business went under a year ago, and that Ray had always had a temper. But the real shocker comes when Becky's father tells Brass how Ray's first wife died -- she was found dead on a stairwell. No one ever had cause to doubt that was an accident, but now Becky's father is beginning to wonder whether he wasn't too trusting of his son-in-law. And he's not the only one who's growing suspicious -- the CSIs decide to dig up the body of Ray's first wife, and find out whether they have to deal with two murders, rather than one...
