Rascal Flatts will appear on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation tonight, but don’t expect a simple music plug. (Minor spoilers after the jump!)
As CSI Files previously reported, the band will perform in “Unshockable”—but something goes terribly wrong, and one member finds himself in the hospital. The other members become suspects as the CSIs try to get to the bottom of what happened. “They are the crime story,” executive producer Carol Mendelsohn told TVGuide.com. “This is not just them playing a concert.”
“This episode is a lot of fun,” added co-producer Phil Conserva. “[The band] approached Carol and I to see if we’d be interested because they are such fans. Their fans will be able to tune in and watch them perform a song they haven’t performed yet. It’s going to be a very fun Thursday night.” He continued, “They are on their 10th year as a band, and we’re on our 10th season. It’s a real nice union between the two forces.”
Elsewhere in the episode, Dr Ray Langston (Laurence Fishburne) gets an interesting offer from CIA Associate Director Craig Halliday (played by Will Patton). Halliday, it seems, knows something about Langston’s father. The pair will cross paths when Langston and Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox) investigate the death of a former CIA officer.
