'CSI': Justin Bieber goes out in a blaze of glory

justin-bieber-csi-0217-320.jpg "CSI" ended on a little bit of a cliffhanger Thursday (Feb. 17) -- but not one involving Justin Bieber's character.

(Spoilers dead ahead.)

Bieber's character, Jason McCann, tried to take revenge against Nick ( George Eads), Catherine ( Marg Helgenberger) and Detective Vartann ( Alex Carter) for the death of his brother in the show's season premiere. He and an accomplice set an elaborate trap that claimed one victim -- although not the one they wanted -- but Jason made a fatal mistake: He used his own cell phone to call Nick and lure him into the web.

Clearly, Jason never watched "The Wire."

Jason's story closed with him and his ex-soldier accomplice getting caught trying to flee to California. Jason was so bent on revenge, though, that he tried to shoot his way through a roadblock of about 20 cops. Not good -- he takes several shots in the chest, and that's the end of Jason McCann and Bieber's stint on "CSI."

The episode's other major story involved Langston ( Laurence Fishburne) testifying against serial killer Nate Haskell (guest star Bill Irwin), who earlier tried to kill Langston. His testimony helped convict Haskell, but with the help of a switched ID bracelet and one of his female groupies, Haskell managed to escape. We're smelling a May sweeps return for him.

Bieber's final scene is below.
