Natasha Henstridge

TV Guide Magazine has learned exclusively that Natasha Henstridge of Species and Eli Stone fame is joining CSI: Miami for the Season 9 finale as Renee Locklear, an undercover agent who is about to cause a stir in more ways than one.

"We meet her in the course of searching for this missing fugitive and she [initially] appears as another possible witness, maybe a possible suspect," says co-executive producer Barry O' Brien. "We bring her in for an interrogation and she reveals that she's actually an undercover agent for the Secret Service."

Expect Henstridge's character to strike some sparks with indestructible team leader Horatio Caine ... read more

I need scoop on the big Brennan episode of Bones. — Geena
ADAM
: As you've no doubt heard, Brennan's investigation of a workaholic's death forces her to examine her own nonexistent personal life — and to take some bold action. What's the result? "We see Brennan's feelings about [Booth and Hannah] more," executive producer Stephen Nathan says. "She's trying to make the best of it, but it's difficult for her." Strangely, Brennan's big move may get more a reaction from Hannah than Booth. "The relationship that these two women forge is going to determine, to a large extent, what happens between Booth and Brennan," Nathan says.

Nikita scoop, please! — Monica
NATALIE:
Alex is faced with her final test, in which she'll have to kill or be killed. When she's unable to pull the trigger, she's forced to... read more

CSI: Miami Says "Happy Birthday" with Its 200th Episode

David Caruso

For most network shows today, producing 200 episodes is a rarity. So, how did CSI: Miami, which accomplishes that feat with Sunday's episode, celebrate?

Check out photos of the CSI: Miami cast

"There was a lot of hype surrounding Episode 100 way back when. I remember we all thought, we've got to do something big: spectacle, spectacle, spectacle!" co-executive producer Marc Dube recalls. "Turns out at Episode 200, it's not about spectacle so much as just doing what we do well: tell a good mystery and tug at some heartstrings along the way."

So Dube and fellow co-executive producer Barry O'Brien penned an episode that did just that. In the episode ... read more

Mega Buzz: A Grey's Competition, A Glee Return and Love on CSI: Miami

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Any scoop about Callie and Arizona on Grey's Anatomy? — Marija
ADAM: When the Chief offers $1 million to the department of the hospital that best demonstrates need, Callie's and Arizona's feelings for one another do not put a damper on their competitive spirit. "Callie turns into a very competitive person and actually starts running around trying to intimidate everyone," Sara Ramirez says. "[She] does this hilarious passive-aggressive thing that was fun to play. She's trying to psych everybody out."

I was surprised to see Terri on Glee. She's been MIA for so long ... yet she's a series regular (or at least recurring)?  Why is Mike Chang not a regular?  He appears on the show more than Terri does! Christine
MICKEY:
These designations are complicated and take into account the plan for the entire season. So while Mike's fling with Tina is at the fore now, I'm hearing that Terri will play a much larger role in later episodes. As she made clear in the Britney episode, she's not giving up on Will, and her presence will be similarly menacing when she returns... read more

David Caruso, CSI: Miami

CSI: Miami producer Barry O'Brien says he isn't worried one bit about the show's move to Sunday night. 

"We're answering the call with essentially a relaunch of our entire series in every category," O'Brien tells TVGuide.com. "It's rarefied air that you breathe when you've been on the air for nine seasons. It's an amazing achievement, and we want to respond with appropriate gratitude and a sense of growth, both in terms of the characters and stylistically."

Fall TV: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows

O'Brien's energy and excitement is evident as he starts discussing storylines for this season. The CSIs will investigate a crime with a literally disappearing murder weapon. One murder will be "witnessed" by a blind bystander. But the story O'Brien is most eager to tell is that of a massive prison break, which will provide headaches for crime lab leader Horatio Caine (David Caruso), who will try to corral the fugitives all season long... read more
