CSI: NY Season 9 Episode 13 “Nine Thirteen” January 18, 2013 CSI:NY, News CSI: NY “Nine Thirteen” Season 9 episode 13 airs Friday, Jan 18 2012 9:00 PM, ET/PT on CBS. Episode Synopsis: The CSIs investigate when a masked man is found at the bottom of a notorious skyscraper known for its history of mysterious deaths. Meanwhile, on her day off, Jo runs into a stranger with a surprising link to her past, on CSI: NY, Friday, Jan. 18 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. CSI: NY, a crime drama inspired by the drama series, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” is about forensic investigators who use high-tech science to follow the evidence and solve crimes in the Big Apple. Det. Mac Taylor, a dedicated and driven crime scene investigator who believes that everything is connected and everyone has a story, is a decorated Marine who served in Desert Storm and dabbled in war photography. The job is his life; he focuses on cases until they are solved. The team includes the newest addition, Josephine “Jo” Danville, an experienced investigator from Washington, D.C., whose work is driven by her empathy for the victim. They work with a team of experts, including Danny Messer, an investigator with an unflappable spirit and a troubled family history, which he uses on the job as he blends his own set of hybrid ethics. Messer was personally selected to join the team by Mac, and he attempts daily to live up to that honor and responsibility. Sheldon Hawkes is the crime lab’s former coroner, a brilliant Ph.D. who transitioned to the field team. Joining them is Don Flack, an edgy, hardcore homicide detective with a quick wit, impressive forensic insight and a long family history in law enforcement; and Lindsay Monroe Messer, a young, athletic CSI with a Midwestern work ethic who is willing to roll up her sleeves to tackle any job, and rarely hints at the dark and devastating secret that originally motivated her to dedicate her life to being an investigator. Lindsay and Danny are married, and have a daughter, Lucy. Rounding out the team is lab rat Adam Ross and eccentric coroner Dr. Sid Hammerback. The New York CSIs may have a different process from those in Las Vegas or Miami, but they are guided by the same steadfast determination. These skilled investigators follow the evidence as they piece together clues and eliminate doubt, to ultimately crack their cases.

This is the way secondary characters should be utilized…there for dramatic effect, and then gone so they don’t detract from the core cast. And it was great to see Sid getting some extra exposure again, especially after the lymphoma diagnosis. All the main cast were so well integrated tonight, and their camaraderie was played up, which was nice to see. As far as Lovato goes, she was present in her official job duties, and that is the best way to focus on her. Actually, this episode was almost perfect, except for having to dredge up Christine. Pam Veasey can’t seem to accept that most viewers want her gone. And please, CSI NY writers, please tell me how Christine is suddenly astute enough to figure out that Lindsey is pregnant when she doesn’t even work with her? Is this the same character, who by the writer’s design, spent 16 hours a day for 6 months by Mac’s side during his rehab, and could not figure out that he had anomic aphasia? That Christine who came out of nowhere and was touted as the reason Mac recovered, while the rest of the CSI team apparently left him out in the wind? That is the only criticism I have of tonight’s show. Hopefully when Christine gets kidnapped in Vegas a few weeks from now, she’ll end up getting sucked through a time portal and end up in Dennis Quaid’s and Michael Chiklis’ version of the town, and then us CSI NY viewers will be free of her forever.
