The notorious and ultra-elusive serial killer dubbed {much to the displeasure of Grissom} β€œThe Strip Strangler” is eventually tracked down by the CSI MΓ¦stro, despite the β€œhelp” of the FBI. In this powerful scene, Gil confronts one Syd Booth Goggle (once considered a minor irritant, at best…), who turns out to be the deadly predator. A risky venture: no backup, and close quarters.

Brilliant performances—both very low-key, but extremely effective—by Ned Beatty and Taylor Nichols, which really get across what a sociopath is: for one thing, they generally don’t stand out. And, of course, there are other qualities….

The Mr. Cannon.

**The seemingly invincible Nielsen, and even the record-settingly acerbic Roy Scheider, succumb, in the end, to the resolute Detective.**
