Eads may not have considered himself a Belieber supporter, but during questions segment from CBS, the actor noted that Justin Bieber was his favorite guest role on CSI. The Canadian singer famously reappears in season 11 as the deranged killer Justin McCann, who shoots cops with pipe bombs. In a CBS segment, Eads describes Bieber as being very hilarious despite having to end up having to kill off his character during the episode. The episode is titled “Targets of Possession,” an apt title given what’s going on.
Stokes fires a barrage of bullets that make McCann twitch comically before finally hitting the ground. Despite a oozing gunshot wound and signs of zero movement, one officer checks the pulse of a character whose only chance of survival at the moment is if CSI decides to become The Walking Dead. In hindsight, the scene is perhaps badly dated given its laughable, meme-worthy status. But it’s definitely unforgettable. In the CBS video, Eads also ended his reminiscence of the final scene with some dark humor, saying, “I had to figure out what the Bieber fever cure was, and it was five spaces.”
