Manny Ortega falls to from a skyscraper. When the new (post-Woods) MPD pathologist arrives and thinks Ortega is still breathing, the CSI team is shot at, she instantly killed and replaced by Dr. Thomas Wellner. At the apartment he fell from a blood stain is found from ATF agent Evan Caldwell, who claims Manny was a rogue informer on illegal ammo trade. Ammo supplier Brad Gower claims to hand-check every bullet under a lucrative 'discrete' deal with Uncle Sam, but it turns out to be an illegal, explosive type. After his confessions he too is shot. Caldwell provides Manny's client list, which includes Julia's new husband Ron Saris, so Horatio convinces her to take their disappointed son Kyle in safety abroad, but he neglected one revenge warning too many.
