Archie Kao on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" - 21 (2012)

Though he only made a trio of appearances during season 12 of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," Archie Kao (Kai, Lost Galaxy) made them count. In the seventeenth episode of the season, titled "Trends with Benefits," his recurring character, Archie Johnson, appeared in four major scenes. With the CSI team investigating the death of a gay college gossip blogger, Archie's technical skills are called upon on several occasions. He analyzes thousands of photographs taken at the college party the victim attended before his death, looking for evidence of those he might have come across. Later, the team discovers the victim had a live video feed hidden in an office on-campus, which Archie discovers belongs to a professor, notorious for sleeping with his students, which they believe may have been a motive for murdering the blogger. Archie later reveals video footage showing the professor raping one of his students, caught by the deceased's hidden camera. Archie is also present when the team figures out that the person behind the blogger's death might be the rape victim herself. Though, a re-enactment of the events leads them to believe she may have been trying to commit suicide, but was interrupted by her classmate, looking to take advantage of her plight for his blog. This episode of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" will re-run this coming Wednesday on CBS.
