3 min read

The franchise offers backstory for Cardoza, the climax of the Compass Killer arc and a repeat of Langston’s first day. Official plot details and cast lists after the jump.

Starting out the week on Monday at 10:00pm ET/PT, one team member’s past is explored in the CSI: Miami episode “Kill Clause”:

Deadly jellyfish are used as a murder weapon, and a mysterious woman from Jesse’s past returns.

Scott Lautanen has directed 22 previous episodes of Miami, including “Chain Reaction” from season six. This is Jeremy Littman‘s first writing credit for the series, but he has previously written episodes of CSI: New York.

The following guest stars will appear in “Kill Clause”:

  • Christian Clemenson as Tom Loman
  • Ciro Suarez as Jeff Lofton
  • Laura Ceron as DeeDee Curson
  • Sam Hennings as Max DeSalvo
  • Chris Eigeman as Garrett Yates
  • Michaela McManus as Caroline Berston
  • Sherman Augustus as Lyle Durbin
  • Ian Anthony Dale as Scott Wilcox
  • Mini Anden as Anna Kitson
  • Tara Erica Moore as Woman
  • Adam Donshik as Professor
  • Alesa B. Gantz as Med Student
  • Ward Horton as Toastmaster


Christian Clemenson is reprising his established recurring role as ME Dr Tom Loman. Sam Hennings appeared in the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation episode “Snuff” during the show’s third season, Adam Donshik guest-starred in the season six episode “Way to Go” and Sherman Augustus was in “Suckers” during season four. Michaela McManus (“Turbulence”) and Ian Anthony Dale (“The Past, Present and Murder”) were on New York last season. The other actors are new to the franchise.

On Wednesday at 10:00pm ET/PT, CSI: New York concludes the Compass Killer storyline with “Manhattanhenge”:

In the culmination of a multi-episode mystery, Mac and his team uncover the dark lair of a murderous madman, the Compass Killer. But as they race to save his fourth victim, the sunrise presents one final surprise that no one ever expected.

This is the fourth time Matt Earl Beesley has directed an episode of New York. His most recent credit was for “Lat/Long”, which was the first episode in the Compass Killer story arc. Co-executive producer Trey Callaway has seven writing credits for the series, including “Lat/Long”.

The episode will feature the following actors and actresses in guest-starring roles:

  • Skeet Ulrich as Hollis Eckhart
  • Martin Papazian as Mr. Birnbaum
  • Josie Davis as Calliope Eckhart
  • Nina Smidt as Red Head Bartender
  • Marc Menchaca as Leonard


Skeet Ulrich is back as the Compass Killer, Hollis Eckhart, and Josie Davis returns as Calliope Eckhart. This is the first time the other actors have appeared in the CSI franchise.

Rounding out the week on Thursday at 9:00pm ET/PT, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation will air a repeat of “The Grave Shift” from last season. It was the first day of work for Dr Ray Langston (Laurence Fishburne), who investigated a burglary and a complicated case involving murder and arson.

“Kill Clause”, “Manhattanhenge” and the repeat of “The Grave Shift” begin airing November 23 on CBS.
