Tonight, Marg Helgenberger‘s run as sexy, smart, and sassy crime scene investigator Catherine Willows will reach its conclusion. A twelve year tenure with more than 250 episodes under her belt, the actress has decided to pursue other opportunities and is bound for more success, whether it be a Broadway show or returning to film. Though her departure will surely bring tears to the show’s audience, the cast and crew of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation are looking on the bright side, reflecting back at their time on the show with the universally adored actress. CSI Files’ Shane Saunders caught up with several of the show’s cast and crew from past and present to talk about their colleague’s departure and favorite memories during a remarkable run.
The franchise offers two new episodes this week, featuring an emotional farewell and the death of a skydiver. Official plot details and cast lists can be found after the jump.

Alec Smight has directed over twenty episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and there’s no sign of him slowing down. Employed since CSI’s inception, Smight started off as an editor and gradually explored other avenues behind-the-scenes such as producing and directing. His latest episode–which airs this Wednesday–marks the fourth time Smight has played a critical role in a cast departure. The incredibly busy director took some time out of his weekend schedule to discuss his transition from editor to director, playing a major part in cast departures, and tease his upcoming episode with CSI Files’ Shane Saunders.
Titus Welliver will once again guest star in this week’s episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, “Willows in the Wind”. Following “Zippered” and “Ms Willows Regrets”, Wednesday’s episode is the third and final installment in the arc leading to Marg Helgenberger’s (Catherine Willows) exit from the series. Welliver plays Mark Gabriel, the man in charge of a military contractor called Ceressus Logistics. Gabriel is “a CEO and a high-powered guy” who runs “a Blackwater type company,” the actor told iamROGUE.
“It’s an interesting character,” Welliver added. “It was great to work with Ted [Danson, DB Russell], who I’ve known for a while, and Paul Guilfoyle (Jim Brass) who is a total Jedi knight and ninja master actor. I also loved working with Marg, and Annabeth Gish (Laura Gabriel). They’re a great bunch of people, and it was a lot of fun.”
This week’s episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, “Willows in the Wind”, marks the end of Marg Helgenberger’s (Catherine Willows) run on the hit crime drama. However, the actress told the Washington Post, “You haven’t seen the last of me.” Helgenberger said she might return to the series in the future to appear in an episode or two. “[T]he producers said to me practically every day the door is wide open,” she explained. “If I’m available and I’m up for it you betcha.”
