Alice In Wonderland Wedding Ends In Disaster On 'CSI'

Things started off a little surreal on " CSI: Crime Scene Investigation " (Wed., 10 p.m. ET on CBS) with a wedding based on "Alice in Wonderland." But then the festivities were interrupted by the White Rabbit and Cheshire Cat packing heat. It was but the first of what the team soon realized was a three-wedding spree by a couple who've done this in two cities prior to Las Vegas. Meanwhile, David asked for a huge favor from Morgan when his mother came into town. He needed her to pretend to be his girlfriend so his mother Olivia, played by Jaclyn Smith , could think he'd finally found love and maybe get off his back. She ultimately played along, but then even this got to be more when she wound up staying longer than expected and coordinated a lunch with the pair and Morgan's father Conrad. It's been made pretty clear on the show that Morgan's relationship with her father is strained. He's tried to reach through to her and establish some kind of a connection, but she's been cold toward him. When David and his mother wound up kidnapped by the wedding robbers, he proved himself more than a lab geek by taking control of the situation. With a little help from the outside, he effectively saved her life. And while he admitted the truth about his relationship with Morgan, or lack thereof, the impromptu lunch did the important thing of breaking down some of the walls between Conrad and his daughter, so there's hope of a relationship building between the two of them. Help solve the next case on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.

'CSI': Russell Interrogates Prime Suspect In Student's Murder

In "Trends With Benefits" the " CSI " (Wed., 10 p.m. ET on CBS) team investigated the death of a recently murdered student whose photo had ended up trending on the Internet. When D.B. Russell ( Ted Danson ) interrogated the prime suspect, college professor Tom Harvey ( Paul Blackthorne , " The River ") he discovered that having sex with students wasn't a big deal to Harvey. The professor taught a class on "The Anthropology Of Fame," which dealt with the nature of celebrity. So Russell was therefore taken aback when Harvey played the privacy card during ther interrogation. "After you made a career out of exposing everyone else's business. That's a little hypocritical, don't you think?" Harvey plead guilty to the charge of hypocrisy, but wasn't admitting anything else. Russell then put forward his theory that Harvey had panicked and killed his protege after the young man "caught you with your pants down." "You serious?" scoffed Harvey, who pointed out that all the students he'd slept with were of age, had consented and were all female. "What scandal?" he sneered. The "CSI" drama continues, Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on CBS .
