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

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?

"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, fittingly titled "Happy Birthday," Horatio Caine (David Caruso) finds a beaten woman (Warehouse 13's Joanne Kelly) who is eight months' pregnant and has been left for dead. But the episode's title has several other meanings: The life of the victim's baby hangs in the balance and this all occurs on the birthday of Horatio's late wife, Marisol (Alana de la Garza).
