Make no mistake, the most recent episode of CBS’ high-rated ‘CSI: NY’ wasn’t serving up a red herring. Shane Casey is due for a sinister encore, sources tell me.

In fact, the elusive – but now incarcerated (?) – serial killer played twice before by Edward Furlong (‘Terminator 2′) likely will be back with a bang. Executive producer Pam Veasey teases that Casey “will be part of the Season 6 finale, and a cliffhanger you won’t want to miss.”

With that ominous scoop now hanging heavy in the air, how about some happy news for ol’ Mac Taylor?

Well, as previously reported, ‘Twin Peaks’ alumna Madchen Amick has been cast on ‘CSI: NY’ in the recurring role of a new romantic interest for the earnest detective. Fancast can now report that Amick will first air on March 10, when Mac literally bumps into her character at a hospital.

“Madchen is playing an ER doctor,” says Veasey, “and we will visit her work place many times.”

“Many times”? What’s going down at the hospital all of a sudden? One could factor in this: Mac’s stepson, Reed, is due to resurface in that same March 10 episode.

Sounds to me like young Reed is cruising for a bruising – but that’d be a small price to pay in the name of Mac finding new love. Am I right?

‘CSI: NY’ returns with new episodes on February 3.
