In this season’s final hour, currently slated to air May 7, the Everwood alum will play Sam, someone who as a Sheriff’s Deputy back in the late 1980s demonstrated a knack for invention and an aptitude for forensic science. As such, he pioneered methods of crime scene investigating in ways that put him decades ahead of his time.

The finale’s Case of the Week finds Sam in present day, when an old case involving the killing of a 12-year-old resurfaces and he is drawn back into the investigation.

    At first glance I read that as “CSI Finale Exclusive: William…” And it got my hopes up.

    • Anna says:

      Lol. Yeah, the only true CSI forensics pioneer is Grissom. But, sadly, they keep trying….

      • Jackson says:

        There were plenty of forensic pioneers before Grissom. Jeeze, I get that he is your favorite character but lets not act like he invented the art of crime scene investigation.

        • Anna says:

          Jeeze. Get a grip. I’m not stupid. I meant he’s the TV show’s pioneer CSI. CSI without Grissom is like NCIS without Gibbs. He wasn’t always my favorite, but the show certainly went downhill after he left.

    Wasn’t he “Sam” on White Collar, too? Funny coincidence!
