NUMB3RS - Season 2 - "Harvest" - Meltdown

Published on 10/17/2008

Activity Overview

In "Harvest," Don and David discover a secret operating room in the basement of an old motel, which is being used to perform illegal kidney transplants. They find blood-soaked sheets and a pile of ice melting on a sheet of plastic in a corner. When Charlie sees the FBI's pictures, he notices that the size of the puddle formed by the melting ice depends on the time the picture was taken. This will tell them when their suspects last used the operating room.
