TV Alert: Erin Daniels reunites with her soup chef on “CSI”


The Soup Chef and Cris-pay together again? Pinch me, I’ve gone to lesbian heaven or, more accurately, Las Vegas. Erin Daniels will guest star on CSI tonight, ostensibly reuniting her with her The L Word co-star Lauren Lee Smith. Say it with me: Awwww.

The preview for tonight’s episode features Erin as well as fellow episode guest stars Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel) and Greg Germann (Fish on Ally McBeal). It also features dead skydivers, love triangles, heart attacks and crazy monks.

Oh, Erin, you’re still as funny and adorable as ever. How I’ve miss seeing you on my TV regularly these last three years.

It’s also fun to see Charisma back on TV, and as a blonde no less. She spoke with TV Guide about her CSI guest stint, which apparently includes a “panty party” scene. This is rapidly becoming the best guest star appearance ever.

As she told TV Guide:

I play a slinky little character named Mink, who is a suspect in the murder of her boyfriend because there was a love triangle between her and another sexy little thing played by The L Word‘s Erin Daniels … [The dead skydiver] was both of ours [boyfriend]. So there was tension, because we were both vying for his affections and such. You know how competitive that can be. I mean, the three of them were even sharing a trailer … [The panty party] involves dancing around half-dressed in our little Winnebago.

No word on whether Dana Erin and Lara Lauren share any screen time, though there is hope because Lauren’s character, Riley, appears to be working the skydiver case with Nick. Cross your fingers and your toes.

So, are you excited to see Dana and Lara together again? And am I the only one who wishes Lauren would wearing that cute little chef hat for old time’s sake?

CSI airs tonight on CBS at 9 p.m. ET.
