Nothing seems to be going right for Julie Finlay on CSI.
Although Finn (Elisabeth Shue), Sara (Jorja Fox) and Morgan (Elisabeth Harnois) are supposed to be enjoying a spa weekend, it's clear in the exclusive sneak peek below from Wednesday's episode (10/9c, CBS) that something has gone terribly awry. Not only is Finn alone in the middle of nowhere, but she's sporting a pretty ugly bloody nose as well...

Wednesday's episode of CSI marks the CBS procedural's 300th episode, and no matter how you slice it, that's a lot of murder.
"We figure we've killed thousands of people," executive producer Carol Mendelsohn says with a laugh. "Which probably isn't something to be proud of, but... most shows never get to 300 episodes. Everybody's just so proud."
The CSI cast reflects on the show's finest hours
Indeed, reaching such a milestone is rare in today's increasingly fragmented television landscape...
Over 14 seasons and 300 episodes, CSI has concocted some wild plots and brought in memorable guest stars to keep the body-bagging business fresh and fun. We asked the cast — including Marg Helgenberger, who reprises her role as Catherine Willows for Wednesday's landmark 300th episode, which flashes back to a case the team failed to crack in 2000 — to reflect on the show's best installments, selected by longtime executive producer Carol Mendelsohn.
George Eads won't be gone from CSI for long!
The actor is slated to return in an episode slated for...
Elisabeth Shue and Lea Thompson
Though they costarred in 1989's Back to the Future Part II and 1990's Part III, Elisabeth Shue (who played Marty McFly's girlfriend, Jennifer) and Lea Thompson (who played Marty's mom, Lorraine) appeared together in only one scene. So it came as a rare treat for them to reunite for a November episode of Shue's CSI, in which Thompson guest stars as an investigator who is looking into a misconduct claim against Greg (Eric Szmanda). "We both had to sign a bunch of Back to the Future Part II posters for the crew," Thompson says. "A lot of people, including Eric, were totally geeking out."
Kerry Washington, Paget Brewster, Andrew Lincoln
