Charisma Carpenter is under suspicion in this week's episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, "The Descent of Man".

As CSI Files previously reported, Carpenter's character is a "fun and memorable" skydiver. "I play a slinky little character named Mink," the actress told TV Guide. She added that Mink "is a suspect in the murder of her boyfriend because there was a love triangle between her and another sexy little thing played by The L Word's Erin Daniels."

Mink claims that she was dating the victim, and the other woman also claims that he was her boyfriend. "Well, he was both of ours," Carpenter clarified. "So there was tension, because we were both vying for his affections and such. You know how competitive that can be. I mean, the three of them were even sharing a trailer!"

Carpenter enjoyed the name her character was given. "Isn't Mink the best name in prime time?! I thought [Veronica Mars'] Kendall Casablancas was good, but Mink... wow," the actress said. She also shared information about a scene from "Descent of Man" in which her character is involved in a "panty party". Carpenter explained, "It involves dancing around half-dressed in our little Winnebago."

The original interview is from TV Guide. "The Descent of Man" airs April 9 on CBS.
