It’s time to focus on the Gig Harbor Killer again in this week’s CSI Season 15 Episode 13, “The Greater Good,” which sees both Mark Valley and Mark-Paul Gosselaar return as Detective Daniel Shaw and twins Jared Briscoe and Paul Winthrop, respectively.
The official description of this week’s episode reads, according to Hollywood Hills, “The CSI team earns the main suspect in the gig harbor killings is being released from jail due to lack of evidence.”
The same site has also posted two sneak peeks from the episode teasing what to expect. In the first, which you can watch below, Russell’s daughter tells him she wants to go home to Seattle, but he’s too worried with what’s going on with the Gig Harbor Killer. She knows he wants to protect her (and the officers watching the house are part of that), but she wants to get back to her life. She has a taxi picking her up for her flight, but her father wants to drive her himself – or at least have a detective drive her since he has a meeting. There’s just one problem: Daniel Shaw is listening to their call and watching the house too.
The second CSI Season 15 Episode 13 clip shows that Maya gets captured – but it looks like “love” could very well save her… or not. She at least gets the opportunity to run, but she runs into what may be her worst nightmare. Watch the video below to see what happens. Which twin is worse?
It seems that all this happens because Shaw may have told them about that phone call he overheard. As was previously revealed, he’s working with Paul and can’t be trusted. Mark Valley spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about what was revealed about Shaw.
“At the end of the last episode, you find out Shaw might not have revealed to Finlay (Elisabeth Shue) everything that’s going on in regards to the Gig Harbor Killer. We find out at the end of that episode that, yeah, he might be involved with the killer – just not necessarily how the audience might expect.”
That means Shaw isn’t just in town about his missing partner, and Valley did admit that “he has another motive involved with Finlay and CSI in Las Vegas,” but it’s that connection he has with Finlay that causes some conflict for Shaw.
“My thought is he’s not really just a sociopath; he’s not a person that has no conscience. But there are motives for what he’s doing, and he’s also conflicted. There are real feelings for Finlay, but he has a job to do. (Laughs.) He has a mission to accomplish, but he’s conflicting with that.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, the new CSI spinoff, CSI: Cyber, will be premiering in March, but it will not be taking the original series’ time slot as expected when this season is over. Instead, CBS’ other new drama, Battle Creek, will be.
CSI Season 15 airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on CBS.
