Marking Marg Helgenberger's last appearance, the episode will see Catherine making a life-changing decision after she wraps up one last case.
After almost 12 years, Marg Helgenberger will have her final action on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" next week. Details of the upcoming episode are scarce, but a preview video sees Helgenberger's character Catherine Willows being wrapped in a plastic bag, probably to trick people who shot her.
"Willows in the Wind" will air Wednesday, January 25 at 10/9c on CBS. According to the official plot summary for the said outing, the CSI team says goodbye to Catherine Willows as she makes a life-changing decision.
Helgenberger filmed her final scene for "CSI" on December 7 last year. Holding back tears, she said to other cast members and the crew on the show's set, "I've been thinking a lot about this moment for a very long time. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for the time of my life."
In a recent interview, the 53-year-old actress explained her decision to quit the crime drama series. "I felt the need to kind of step back, because I had been playing this character for 11 and a half years, to reassess and regroup and I'm - as scary as that is - I'm also very excited about the great wide open, the future and all the possibilities," she said on "CBS This Morning".
