CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Series 12 - 22. Homecoming

Ted Danson’s on-screen wife makes an appearance and who should it be but Peri Gilpin — fabulous Roz from Frasier. What a brilliant piece of casting. The season finale is a family affair with glimpses of DB’s home life, someone’s father being shot and the relatives of one key character being kidnapped.

But before we get to that cliffhanger (which will have you clinging on to your sofa), a triple homicide takes place just a block away from where the mayor is congratulating herself on reducing the crime rate. There are nods to the past, too: DB warns Finn not to “repeat history” and jailed crime boss McKeen is back.

About this programme

22/22. A dinner for the sheriff's re-election campaign is interrupted when a drug dealer, his bodyguard and the wife of the sheriff's friend are all found dead. Suspicion immediately falls on the husband of the latter victim, until a secret medical condition rules him out, but it is clear someone is trying to set him up - and a revelation about the dead woman backs up that theory. However, emotions run high following the forensic examination of the gun, which leads to a villain well known to the CSI team.
