The following page is an example of an episode article. Please be sure that when you do implement this article layout, do NOT include these blue boxes, they are here to provide guidance only.
The stub template should be included unless the article is deemed to be complete. This means the stub template should only be removed once all of the sections have been suitably filled.

This article is Trace Evidence. You can help the Crime Lab by investigating it further.
The episode template box contains some of the most important pieces of episode data. It is implemented as follows:
{{Episode (Las Vegas/Miami/New York/Cyber)
|title = EPISODE NAME (Karma to Burn, Family Affair, Shock Waves etc...)
|season = SEASON NUMBER (11, 12, 13 etc...)
|number = EPISODE NUMBER (1, 2, 3, 4 etc...)
|image = EPISODE IMAGE [[File:IMAGE.(jpg/png/etc...)|250px]]
|writer = [[WRITER 1]],<br/>[[WRITER 2]]
|director = [[DIRECTOR]]
|date = ORIGINAL AIRDATE (September 26, 2012)
|previous = PREVIOUS EPISODE [[Homecoming]]
|next = NEXT EPISODE [[Code Blue Plate Special]]
It will then output like this:

Karma to Burn
Season 13
Number 1
Writer Christopher Barbour,
Don McGill
Director Alec Smight
Original Airdate September 26, 2012
Previous Episode: Homecoming
Next Episode: Code Blue Plate Special
The episode introduction should be as follows:

EPISODE NAME is the EPISODE NUMER (first, second, third etc...) episode in season SEASON NUMBER (eleven, twelve, thirteen etc...) of SHOW NAME.

So for Karma to Burn, the introduction will be:

Karma to Burn is the first episode in the thirteenth season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.


The synopsis is a broad overview of the episode.

The team strive to find answers following the kidnapping of Russell's granddaughter and the shooting of Undersheriff Ecklie.


The Plot section provides an indepth "walkthrough" of the episode. This section shouldn't describe the episode on a scene by scene basis but should highlight events that occurr and any interactions between characters. Relevant in-world images can be used providing there is sufficient text to fill the section. So for instance, do not add an image if there is only 2 lines of text, like the text below.

Finn receives a text message from Sara informing her that Ecklie has been shot. She calls Russell to let him know where she is and he tells her that his granddaughter Kaitlyn has been kidnapped.

Hodges This section is a stub and requires expanding


The cast section generally contains two subsections, Main Cast and Guest Cast.

Main Cast[]

Main cast credits are added for anyone who apears in the opening credits and/or is credited as main in the press releases.

Guest Cast[]

Guest cast credits are added for anyone mentioned in the end credits and/or mentioned in the press release. Guest, Special guest star and Recurring characters all go in this section.
If a character naming dispute ever arises (see Peter Onorati below) both names should be added but only the name used on-screen should be linked. The show itself is our best source so always use it if possible.
