CSI: Crime Scene Investigation will explore the fallout of the tragedy that befalls them in the season 14 premiere. (Spoilers after the jump!)
When CSI’s thirteenth season came to an end, Morgan Brody (Elisabeth Harnois) and Ellie Brass (Teal Redmann) were both in the clutches of a killer whose murders were inspired by Dante’s Inferno. As CSI Files previously reported, season 14 opens at a funeral. There is a closed casket, and fans will be left wondering who is inside. “In the very first frame of the premiere, we will see a casket and our CSI family gathered at a memorial service, in mourning,” Executive Producer Don McGill told TV Line. The episode will then flash back three days, to pick up where “Skin in the Game” left off.
The identity of the victim is still a mystery, but McGill confirmed that someone close to the CSI family will die in “The Devil and DB Russell”. “People will be surprised who it is,” he revealed. “And there will ramifications as the season progresses.” CSI’s premiere will air Wednesday, September 25 at 10:00pm ET/PT.
In more upbeat news, it was previously reported that CSI’s leading man Ted Danson (DB Russell) would reunite with fellow Cheers star John Ratzenberger during season 14. Ratzenberger will appear in episode three, “Torch Song”, and he’ll play a club owner. “There are just some great scenes between Ted and John,” McGill said. “It was really electric.”
