When the twelfth season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation came to a close, two families faced cliffhangers that will be resolved in the fall. (Spoilers after the jump!)
At the end of CSI’s season twelve finale, “Homecoming”, the fates of several characters were left up in the air. Conrad Ecklie (Marc Vann) was shot, and DB Russell’s (Ted Danson’s) granddaughter Kaitlyn was kidnapped. Executive Producer Don McGill did not give away too many details about the upcoming premiere of season thirteen, but he did indicate that Russell’s family will continue to play a large role in the series. “We are going home with our characters more, so there is room to explore the larger circle of Russell relatives,” McGill revealed to TV Guide. As for Ecklie, the bond between him and his daughter Morgan Brody (Elisabeth Harnois) will be developed further—assuming he survives. “Morgan can see her father has evolved as a human being and sees in him the father she always wanted,” McGill said.
