'CSI' To Finally Reveal What Makes Grissom Tick

TV Guide's Mike Ausiello this week unveiled one of the plots that will unfold during the 6th season of CSI.

According to the columnist, it will be front man Gil Grissom who will be placed under the microscope during the new season of the show. "This season we're finally going to find out why Grissom is the way he is (read: strong and silent)."

TV Guide's September 18th issue will preview a brand new season of television. According to the magazine, CSI will continue to focus on Nick Stokes's kidnapping, with Grissom finding out Walter Gordon (who buried Stokes alive) may have had an accomplice. The kidnapping will also affect the lives of all the other CSIs as well, so much that Warrick Brown will realize life is too short and will get married, a development Catherine Willows won't be too happy about.

The lab will also lose one of its CSIs this season, said the magazine. But fans need not worry about the lives of their favorite characters: the magazine guaranteed no actors will leave the show. This makes Louise Lombard's Sophia Curtis the most likely candidate, as it was earlier revealed the character will grow tired of office politics and leave the lab to return to the LVPD.

Down in Miami, Horatio Caine will continue to look for peace of mind, though it's not likely he'll find it easily. The character was last seen uncovering the secrets of his brother Raymond's "murder," and this season he will have to make peace with a crime he committed in the past. Calleigh Duquesne will also struggle with her decision to quit ballistics, especially when her replacement's abilities prove to be sub par at best.

The show will continue to tell the stories only the city of Miami can tell, with one case involving a shark attack and another the disappearance of a teenager girl, a plot the writers borrowed from the real-life missing persons case of Natalee Holloway (who disappeared in the Caribbean earlier this year). Miami will also see the addition of a new face this season. Eva La Rue will join the show as DNA analyst Natalia Boa Vista, whose stern personality is set to clash with everyone at the lab.

And while Miami is looking at a dark season, New York will brighten up, literally. The set of the second spin-off has been revamped completely to allow more light to infiltrate into the CSI lab, which has been moved to a high rise building. The show will also lose a CSI during the second episode of the season. Vanessa Ferlito (Aiden Burn) is set to leave New York while Anna Belknap will join the cast as Lindsay Monroe, a CSI from Montana.

Fans can also expect to see Mac travel down to Florida, as the writers have already developed a crossover episode between New York and Miami. According to series creator Anthony Zuiker, Horatio and Mac will investigate a case that'll begin in Miami and end in the Big Apple. Mac and Horatio have worked together before, of course; the characters met during the episode "MIA/NYC NonStop." The second Miami/New York crossover will air during November sweeps.
