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."
Former Caroline in the City star Lea Thompson is moving west to Las Vegas: The actress will guest-star on CSI during November sweeps, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
Thompson will play a smart, no-nonsense woman who knows her way around a CSI lab after working crime scenes in Detroit...
For Switched at Birth's Regina Vasquez, readjusting to life after rehab will prove to be more than difficult.
"When Regina comes back, there's an adjustment period," Katie LeClerc tells TVGuide.com. "We're used to not being a cohesive family, but it's especially hard on [everyone]."
Returning summer shows: Where we left off
Season 2 of Switched at Birth can be summed up in two words for just about every character: New beginnings.
When Season 1 left off, Bay (Vanessa Marano) had finally come to her senses after breaking the rules (and the law), Daphne (Katie Leclerc) was left heartbroken by her first love, and the Kennish' trial came to an end naming them victors in the switched at birth case, but rewarding them just a dollar in compensation and Angelo (Gilles Marini) a whopping 5 million. As Season 2 picks up (Jan. 7 at 8/7c on ABC Family), every character will essentially be starting over, but some will struggle more than others.
Switched at Birth's Daphne and Bay have had to learn to grow together, but in the final part of Season 1, they'll be breaking away.
"This cycle we really push each of the girls," executive producer Lizzy Weiss tells TVguide.com. "There's a big arc... for each of them about growing up, breaking away and pushing boundaries."
