CSI: Miami and CSI: New York are both repeats this week. But CSI returns from a brief hiatus with a brand new episode, "Spark of Life".

CBS describes the episode as follows:

Grissom discovers a connection between the fiery suicide of a woman in the Vegas wilderness and the slaughter of an entire family in a suburban home. The evidence exposes a couple's infidelity, as well as the unthinkable results of one woman's desperate attempt to get pregnant.

"Spark of Life" debuts writer Allen MacDonald and was directed by veteran Ken Fink. Below is a list of the guest actors appearing in this episode:

  • David Berman as David Phillips
  • Louise Lombard as Sofia Curtis
  • Wallace Langham as David Hodges
  • Aisha Tyler as Mia Dickerson
  • Alex Carter as Detective Vartan
  • Lennie Loftin as Chief Dysart
  • Lina Patel as Tara Matthews
  • Anna Lumarque as E.R. Nurse
  • Michael Bryan French as Dr. Frank
  • Aimee Miles as Corinne Stewart
  • Jeffrey Johnson as Morgan Stewart
  • Justin Kirk as Patrick Bromley
  • Daylia Sky Wallace as Dani Stewart
  • Tim DeKay as Neal Matthews
  • Heather McComb as Annabelle Frost
  • Terry Bozeman as Brad Lewis
