Big things are coming up on all three members of the CSI franchise.

CSI: New York's Melina Kanakaredes (Stella Bonasera) has expanded her resume by picking up a pen. "I'm writing the 24th episode this season, the one right before the finale," the actress told Watch with Kristin. "I really enjoyed going into a different part of the business." Kanakaredes also revealed that the season five finale of New York, which airs May 20, would end with a cliffhanger. However, before the show ends its fifth season, Lindsay Monroe (Anna Belknap) and Danny Messer (Carmine Giovinazzo) will become parents. TV Guide reveals that Lindsay will go into labor on May 6, but it may take her a while to give birth. According to CSI Files sources, this will be the twenty-third episode of the season, tentatively titled "Greater Good".

Over on CSI: Miami, Entertainment Tonight reports that Horatio Caine (David Caruso) and his team will investigate a case involving a reality television series. The episode, which is set to air in April, finds the Miami CSIs on the set of an unscripted dating show called "The Marrying Kind", which is similar to The Bachelor. The show's star has to pick between the final two contestants. He breaks one woman's heart, but the other woman is found dead before he can propose.

The original member of the franchise, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, also has something coming up as the season winds to a close. In an episode tentatively titled "Reflections", Catherine Willows (Marg Helgenberger) will flash back to when she first joined the Las Vegas crime lab in 1991. According to Ausiello, Henry Thomas, who starred in the movie ET as a child, has been cast as convicted murderer Jeremy Kent. Catherine put Kent away during her first solo case, and he has spent his time in jail learning about forensics. Now, nearly two decades later, Kent challenges Catherine's findings, and the team must determine if he is truly guilty.
