Last season on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," the gang's former nemesis, McKeen (Conor O'Farrell) somehow managed to turn the CSI team on its head. The fact that he did it all from prison with his connection to law enforcement made it all the more frightening.
First, McKeen taunted Nick (George Eads) with Warrick's (Gary Dourdan) murder, causing Nick to quit his job in utter exasperation. Next, the always exuberant Finlay was in possible danger, because she is with a cop who may want to kill her.
As if that weren't enough, Conrad Ecklie (Marc Vann) got shot, and Russell's granddaughter (Mia Hayes) was kidnapped. This entire plot was somehow masterminded from prison by the evil McKeen. How can anyone on the team be safe when McKeen can have his way from anywhere? All he needs is his evil genius brain.
A TVLine interview indicates that Finlay may be able to fight her way to safety, but Russell (Ted Danson) may not. As the leader of the group, Russell will be targeted for complete destruction. He's going to have to fight hard to save his family.
TVGuide.com spoke with George Eads, who says we have not seen the last of Nick. Well, we hope not! He's one of the few original characters, and is the tie that binds past and present. He also is too good of a guy to leave Russell in the woods.
Find out what happens and whether Ecklie will pull through on the lucky "CSI" Season 13 premiere episode "Karma to Burn," on Wednesday, 9/26 at 10PM on CBS.
