CSI: Crime Scene Investigation's grand inquisitor made one final return for the last ever episode of the crime show, a two-hour special in which our man with the forensic gifts and perennially troubled love life was eventually reunited with his estranged wife, Sara, while former sidekick Catherine Willows was installed as the new crime lab director. After 15 years the original CSI had begun to show its age but this was a fitting send-off for what was once a slick, superior piece of television. 

Best of all, fans got a happy ending that stayed true to the guiding principles of CSI: keep the twists coming but never cheat the audience.
