‘CSI: Vegas’: Matt Lauria Says ‘We’re Running Out of Season’ To Solve the Case

“CSI: Vegas” is now only two episodes away from its finale. Currently, it hasn’t been renewed for a second season, but there’s also no news that it’s been canceled. No news is good news, right? But, what about this Hodges case storyline? Is there enough time to see it to its completion, or is “CSI: Vegas” planning on leaving us with a cliffhanger, bringing the story over into a second season?

Matt Lauria, who plays Josh Folsom, seems to think there’s not enough time to solve the case. “Look, we’re running out of season here. We only have 10 episodes, so it’s starting to get a little tense,” Lauria said in a conversation with TV Insider. “We don’t get this thing figured out, we could be going into next season. But it’s huge because it’s been difficult.”

Lauria spoke about the struggles of the case, and Folsom’s indecision. “You’ve seen my character, Josh, be on the fence about how to lean on this one,” he said, “because at the end of the day, all we do have is the actual evidence and character reference doesn’t stand up against evidence. And I didn’t even personally know the man.”

This is going to be a hard one for the CSIs; it already has been, with Maxine being suspended (though that didn’t really stop her), and suspects being blown up, and evidence seemingly leading nowhere. But the team is getting closer and closer. These last few episodes are going to bring them all together and (hopefully) connect the dots of this case. If not, we could be looking at an arc that extends into the first few episodes of season two.

‘CSI: Vegas’ Team Gets Down and Dirty in New Episode

Last night, “CSI: Vegas” aired the episode “Pipe Cleaner,” 8th in the season. We’re staring down the barrel of the end of the season, and things are starting to come together.

In the episode, Sara and Grissom (or should we call him Grossom because this episode was gross) investigate a body that’s been dissolved to complete goo in a bathtub. Turns out, there’s more than one body in there thanks to some great forensic work by Hugo.

Maxine continued to work on the Hodges case despite her suspension; she found the guy who executed the hit on Brass from the first episode at Anson Wix’s request. We just have to hope he doesn’t die an untimely death like Martin Kline.

Things are certainly ramping up as we pull into the home stretch of “CSI: Vegas.” Let’s hope the team keeps their eyes on the prize in the Hodges case, and let’s also keep our fingers crossed for a second season.
