They formerly worked together on a case involving the rape of a U.S. senator’s daughter — Jo’s last case before leaving the FBI for New York. Because of Frank’s mistake in processing evidence — and Jo’s refusal to hide the mistake — serial rapist John Curtis (Jason Wiles) was released. When Curtis strikes again in New York, Frank comes to visit Jo. Anyone else think he might hold a grudge?
Curtis’ new case will also bring Sen. Matthews (Jeffrey Nordling) and daughter Serena (Jenn Proske) to New York in hopes that Curtis will finally get the punishment they feel he deserves.

CSI: NY airs Fridays at 9/8c on CBS.
