Valley: Shaw Has Another Motive


Mark Valley will appear in this Sunday’s episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, “The Greater Good”, which marks his third appearance in a recurring role as former Seattle detective Daniel Shaw. The private investigator came to Las Vegas in the season 15 premiere, “The CSI Effect”, to search for his missing partner, and “The Twin Paradox” revealed that Shaw may be keeping secrets from the rest of the team. The ongoing Gig Harbor storyline continues this week, and you can find out more about Shaw’s role after the jump. (Contains spoilers!)

Here’s an excerpt of a longer interview from the Hollywood Reporter:

Daniel entered this season as a private detective with ties to Russell and Finlay’s past in Seattle, and all were seemingly on the same team when a former colleague — with a connection to the Gig Harbor Killer — went missing in Vegas. Now it appears Shaw is in cahoots with the Gig Harbor Killer or very possibly the killer himself. What can you tease about this next installment, “The Greater Good”?

At the end of the last episode, you find out Shaw might not have revealed to Finlay (Elisabeth Shue) everything that’s going on in regards to the Gig Harbor Killer. We find out at the end of that episode that, yeah, he might be involved with the killer — just not necessarily how the audience might expect.

Could he be using the position he’s in now to assist the case?

Yes. He has a couple irons in the fire. He’s concerned and worried about his partner that he came looking for and has gone missing, but we find out he has another motive involved with Finlay and CSI in Las Vegas.
