‘CSI’ season 16, episodes 1 and 2 (series finale) preview: Marg Helgenberger on happy returns

CSI -There is no doubting to us that “CSI” has become a modern-day classic, and a show that redefined for many what a crime procedural was. It’s strange to be sitting here saying that the end of the road for the franchise is just about here.

Yet, that is what is coming our way Sunday night, as the saga will be complete courtesy of a two-hour finale that is going to air Sunday night. Whether it be William Petersen or Marg Helgenberger, many of your favorite cast members are going to be returning to take on one final case in Las Vegas. In addition to that, you can expect to see at least a few surprises. In speaking about some of these interesting developments to The Hollywood Reporter, Helgenberger had the following to say:

“There’s a big fan favorite that’s returning — Melinda Clarke, who played a character that appeared several times on the show by the name of Lady Heather. She sort of becomes a suspect. Then, there’s homages throughout the whole episode — lines that were memorable [earlier in the series], somebody repeats that line [in the finale], [but] not necessarily the same character. (Laughs.) My daughter returns, who’s now grown. I think the fans are just going to appreciate seeing everyone together again and solving a crime as a unit.”

Ultimately, we feel like the goal of the finale is to bring everything full-circle. You will remember everything that you loved about the show in the first place, and then also see just where it is evolved. Even if you don’t watch it live, this is a two-hour dose of nostalgia that is worthy of being watched.
