|CSI: Crime Scene Investigation episode|
|Episode no.||Season 7

The episode opens with Sara and Grissom processing a scene, while Catherine questions the motel manager about who she was with the night before. The two CSIs look around the crime scene, seeing a miniature version of the crime scene. Grissom actually makes a comment that shows how much older he is than Sara, saying that a song was "Before Sara's time." Sara's response ("I'll download it") reinforces this point. Sara leaves the crime scene, finding Catherine at the motel.
Catherine asks Sara to process the scene of her rape without anyone else knowing. Sara warns it will be inadmissible, and advises Catherine to "call it in". Catherine says she knows protocol and all she wants to know is what happened, emphasizing that she does not want to make the investigation official. Catherine returns to the lab, where she processes her improvised rape kit.
After picking up Lindsey from a dance practice, Catherine gets into a car accident. A man approaches the car, and kidnaps Lindsey. Catherine finds acceleration marks on the road, showing that the crash was deliberate. Only a few hours after the incident, Sam appears, wondering why Catherine hasn't told him of the kidnapping yet. He admits that someone is trying to use his family to get to him. He shows her photos of Catherine drugged and of Lindsey bound, gagged, and blindfolded. During the conversation, Catherine calls Sam "a thug in thousand dollar shoes," and he slaps her across her mouth. Catherine leaves with the words: "Thanks for not disappointing me, Sam." A fingerprint on Catherine's car connects it to a previous robbery, and the crime scene photos show the chair in which Lindsey photographed and bound. This gives the CSIs their needed break: Lindsey is rescued, and her kidnapper shot and injured as he tries to escape. He is identified as having been in the bar the previous night. His DNA shows that his brother is the partner of the man who committed suicide at Sam's party. When Catherine goes to tell this to Sam outside of his casino, the partner approaches and shoots Sam, before being shot himself by Sam's bodyguards.
The investigation continues into the murder of the rock n' roll star, Izzy Delancy (played by Danny Bonaduce). It is discovered that Izzy was in negotiations for a stage show based on his music. The rights to his music will go to his son, but since he is a minor they will be controlled by his mother, Izzy's first wife (though it turns out they weren't really married). The investigators find that Izzy had been sleeping with the nanny, and the nanny had been selling private photographs of the family to a gossip website. At first, the son is suspected due to his interest in models, but is eliminated when it is shown that he faints at the sight of blood. The case finishes unsolved, though Grissom finds a part of a photograph on the back of one of the photographs in the diorama.
Ecklie wants to release information to the media about the diorama. Grissom disagrees, and when Sara also states she doesn't think it is a good idea, Ecklie makes a comment that suggests he knows about their relationship. Later, Grissom tells Sara that he will deal with it.
In season 7, episode 7 ("Post Mortem"), The Miniature Killer - who killed Izzy Delancy - returns with a new victim and a new miniature model. The killer reappears later in the season in "Loco Motives" (episode 10), "Monster in the Box" (episode 16), and "Living Doll (1)" (episode 24).
