Melina Kanakaredes, CSI: NY

Lest anyone miss it, you are hereby reminded that CSI: NY's season finale airs this Thursday at 10 pm/ET, on CBS.

Series star Melina Kanakaredes came by TVGuide.com to preview the season-ender, in which one team member breathes his or her final breath.

"Listen, someone dies every episode," she says, "but it's not always that someone dies within our team."

The death, as can be expected, swings Mac's assembly of investigators into action. Fired up with fury, "the ball gets rolling," says Kanakaredes — that is, until a second possible tragedy is put into play!

In this video Q&A, Kanakaredes — who was in New York City to promote her work with The Children's Brain Tumor Foundation — also shares what it was like to don a new hat and write the script for this week's other episode, which aired Wednesday.
