The eighth season of CSI: New York will find newly-promoted Sergeant Danny Messer (Carmine Giovinazzo) facing difficulties in his marriage to Lindsay (Anna Belknap), and fans can expect to see their daughter Lucy again soon. (Spoilers after the jump!)
Executive producer Pam Veasey told E! Online that Danny’s new role at work will make things more complicated at home. “They are like ships passing in the night,” she explained. “They have to deal with that and wonder what [the promotion] is worth and then Danny will make a decision about it.” When asked if Danny would return to the New York Crime Lab, Veasey added, “It’s awhile, it takes awhile. But they do have to talk about it.”
Central to the couple’s life and plans is their daughter Lucy. Veasey revealed that the little girl would appear during season eight, but the writers have no plans to make the character older (which is a familiar trick used by—but not limited to—soap operas). “[S]he won’t be 19 or anything,” Veasey said. “She’ll be her true age. We won’t advance her forward and be like. ‘[Speaks in adult voice] Hi, Mom.'”
