Finale Movie -- SPOILERS

Catastrophic event? It sounds weird but we will see. I think that they probably want end with Grissom and Sara back together and personally I want this cause since season 1 writers build relation between them so it would be good ending.

I think they deserve a happy ending, especially knowing how Don McGill and his team have mistreated GSR the last few years :rolleyes:
I'm still curious about Lady Heather. Of all the people I ever thought they'd bring back for the finale, she never even crossed my mind. I was never a fan of her character, but I thought the last time we left her was done well.. I hope it doesn't feel forced that she's involved in something else yet again with the LVPD.
Maybe Lady Heather will be the most important person in relation between Gil and Sara? She can say something to him and ... don't know :/
Marg Helgenberger dishes on upcoming 'CSI' finale

After 15 years, "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" will wrap up the series next month with a two-hour finale that will see the return of original cast members William Petersen, who played Gil Grissom, and Marg Helgenberger as Catherine Willows.

"What I can share is that it is going to be a crowd pleaser, and the true diehard fans will be satisfied," Helgenberger told FOX411 at the CBS Television Critics Association party on Tuesday. "There's a lot of story that will get wrapped up and a lot of fan favorite characters are brought back. I was satisfied. I think fans will be, too.”

One of the returning characters will be Lady Heather (Melinda Clarke), who transformed throughout the series from a dominatrix to a therapist specializing in sexual counseling.

"For the true fans that watch that show, they know that character had a real impact on Grissom and then the whole Sara [Jorja Fox] thing happened," Helgenberger said. "Lady Heather weighs heavily in the story in terms of the crime that is committed and in terms of the Sara/Grissom relationship."

As for the rest of the whodunit, Helenberger is sworn to secrecy. She dished that every time she gets updated script pages there is a note included reminding her not to share the information. But she was able to reveal that Catherine, who left town to take a job with the FBI, is lured back when a federal crime is committed at one of the casinos she inherited from her father, Sam Braun (Scott Wilson).

"When Sam died, he had other family members but one of them is in jail, so I was the sole recipient of his legacy of all the casinos," she shared, recalling of how her character came to be a wealthy woman.

Helgenberger said when she left the show to pursue other projects, she didn't miss Catherine at all, but that changed when she put Catherine's suit back on and started reciting her lines.

"I thought, 'I love being back in this women's soul.' She was always direct and tough and passionate about what she did, and told it like it was. She loved her daughter and her job and I think she did a good job of balancing the two."

When "CSI" went on the air on Oct. 6, 2000, CBS was lagging in the ratings. But between "CSI” and "Survivor," which premiered May 31, 2000, the network's standing improved for the better. Not to mention, "CSI" created a whole new genre of television, which CBS capitalized on with series such as "NCIS" and "Criminal Minds."

"I learned what an impact a television show can have on society," Helgenberger said. "There's the 'CSI' effect on criminal trial juries, but also the amount of young people who were inspired to become criminalists, I never would have imagined that."

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" concludes with a special, two-hour series finale Sunday, Sept. 27 on CBS.
The fact that people keep calling it a crowd pleaser worries me.

A federal crime committed at Sam's old casino involving LH? There's no way that won't be interesting. I like that it's at a casino again, feels like the old days (kiss kiss, bye bye).
The first series finale was a flop disaster and cbs didn't want CSI to go out that way just out of pride i guess and have it bomb in the ratings and no one be happy and the whole show was leading to nick moving to San Diego! Crowd pleaser is very important because even though csi forums hate it cbs is still trying to do csi cyber.
There's is another picture of Catherine and Grissom together on the bench, and if you look closely; it looks like Grissom ( Billy) is very happy to be with Catherine ( Marg).
I can't even imagine how happy they'll all be to see each other. Cast and character! They all had their reason for leaving but it looks like they're all having a total blast with this finale. I'm inclined to think that it's a great send off because nothing but that would convince WP to return...

As it draws nearer, I'm finally feeling how weird it will be without Nick there, but at the same time, the entire original cast without the Nick/Warrick duo would suck just as much.
Here's few pics from the set, yesterday. It was a series wrap for Robert David Hall, Paul Guilfoyle, David Berman and Marc Vann.
