Stella Bonasera - CSI: NY | CSI: New YorkWhat do we know about Stella?

Read Stella's bio on CBS
Talk about Stella Bonasera

Backstory:
Stella was born in 1975. Stella was an orphan and grew up in St. Basil's Orphanage and a variety of foster homes.

Work style:
Of the four complaints on her record, two are from felons subsequently imprisoned, one is from a murder suspect released because of an error by an ADA, and the fourth is filed in "Supply and Demand" (episode 120) by the father of a college student suspected of selling drugs that had already killed a fellow student. The insinuation is that Stella is willing to push a suspect's buttons in an effort to get a confession or information. Stella does not suffer fools gladly.

During "Open and Shut" (episode 306), she initially expresses sympathy for a woman who appears to be the only survivor of a multiple homicide in her home. After further investigation reveals that the woman is not the victim but the mastermind of the crime, Stella is furious and confronts the woman in the interrogation room. When the woman smugly compares her situation to Stella's with Frankie, Stella counters that their situations were nothing alike; Stella had been a victim who acted out of self-defense, while the woman was a cold-blooded murderer who wanted to escape what she hinted was a bad marriage. In episode 202, "Grand Murder at Central Station," she is plainly disgusted by the murder suspect's belittling of his blind victim.
Stella Bonasera - CSI: NY | CSI: New York
In episode 316, "Heart of Glass," Stella accidentally cuts herself on a piece of glass while processing a crime scene, potentially exposing herself to the victim's HIV-positive blood. Though she immediately cleans and bandanges the wound, as well as starting an anti-viral regimen, she cannot know for several months whether she has contracted HIV. The uncertainty has already interfered with her life, as when she refuses to let Hawkes touch her after a suspect smashes the one-way mirror in the interrogation room, and Stella is cut on the cheek by a shard of the broken mirror. By episode 320, "What Schemes May Come," she expresses a desire to know once and for all whether or not she is HIV-positive. Stella asks Mac to requisition the necessary supplies for a PCR DNA test, which will provide faster results than the standard tests. As the lab already has the facilities required and someone (specifically lab tech Adam Ross) qualified to perform the tests, Mac approves the expense. Adam later performs the test, and she learns, to her elation, that she is HIV-negative (episode 321, "Past Imperfect").

Stella's timely arrival in the autopsy room, as well as her administration of epinephrine, is critical in saving the life of coroner Sid Hammerback, who suffers a severe allergic reaction to a sandwich he had eaten earlier. Later, Stella expresses her concern to Hammerback that she may have exposed him to HIV when she administered CPR, but he is simply grateful to her and happy to be alive (episode 317, "The Ride In").

Stella's blood is accidentally entered into CODIS due to a lab tech error during her PCR DNA test. Philadelphia Homicide gets a hit for it in a cold case involving some bloody clothes found buried along a highway. The Cold Case Squad sends out Detective Scotty Valens (played by Danny Pino to investigate and question Stella's involvement. Despite his initial threat of handcuffing her, he eventually clears her of culpability in the matter. After he leaves New York, Stella figures out the true culprit is her foster sister. She locates the woman, who is living under an alias, and, while she does confront her, Stella does not immediately cuff her, but gives her a day to flee. It is unknown how much she later reveals to Detective Valens (episode 322, Cold Reveal).


Stella and her colleagues attempt to defend Mac Taylor on the stand after the senior CSI comes under fire for his supposed culpability in the death of kidnapper/murderer Clay Dobson. She is forced to admit that Mac violated department procedures when he charged alone after Dobson. However, Stella later advises Mac to learn to play politics, as that is what the trumped-up charges are all about. After Mac is cleared, she congratulates him on a game well-played, but agree that this is likely not the last time he will be put under the microscope (episode 323, "...Comes Around").

In season four, Stella begins somewhat dating a guy named Drew, though he was really coming onto her more than she wanted him. He keeps sending her gifts despite her getting annoyed after a while. It eventually is revealed that he was really a former childhood friend of Mac's who blamed Mac for the death of his brother in an incident that happened when the two were teenagers.

During most of season five, Stella was caught up in a ring of antiquities theft and forgery that eventually led her to Greece. She was threatened at one point by a man named Sebastian Diaklos, to stay off the case, but kept on it. One of the suspects was proven to have killed someone, but had diplomatic immunity in the US. Stella tried to lock him in a shipping container to get him back to Cyprus, where he could stand trial, but he was found and released before the ship left port. Stella then followed the trail of the case to Greece, leaving her badge on Mac's desk after he yelled at her to stay out of the case. Another of the suspects was a childhood professor friend of Stella's, who tells her as he lay dying after being shot that he loved Stella's mother.

In the first episode of season seven, it's revealed that Stella took a job as head of the New Orleans crime lab.


What drives Det. Bonasera:



Relationships:
Stella Bonasera - CSI: NY | CSI: New York

Stella's most recent romantic relationship was with Frankie Mala, an artist. Frankie first appeared in the second episode of season two, "Grand Murder at Central Station," and he appeared occasionally throughout the rest of the season. In episode 221, "All Access," after discovering that Frankie had secretly taped them making love and uploaded the footage to the Internet, Stella broke off their relationship. Frankie breaks into her apartment shortly after and binds Stella in her living room. Stella manages to free herself and, fearing for her life, is forced to kill Frankie with her service weapon.


Stella cares deeply for all the members of her team. She is very close to Mac Taylor and constantly worries about his physical and mental well-being. She and Mac have one of the noticeably closest relationships on the show. Stella acts as his right hand, the most senior member of his team aside from himself. They are so close that, in preparation for a date with a woman he met in a coffee shop, Mac allows Stella to remove his tie at the end of episode 123 ("What You See Is What You See"). Considering how uptight Mac had been during the course of the first season, this can be seen as a very trusting, if not intimate, gesture. Stella is also protective of the rest of her colleagues. During episode 311, "Raising Shane," a police captain who dislikes Danny Messer harasses him at a crime scene, calling Danny a felon and hinting that he would have Danny dismissed. Stella steps in and tells the captain to back off Danny or the captain would have to answer to her. After Sheldon Hawkes is cleared of the crime that he was framed for, Stella is the first person to greet him when he is released, enveloping him in a warm hug.


Stella has also built a strong friendship with the newest member of the team Lindsay Monroe. She is hurt when Lindsay refuses to share her troubles in episode 312, "Silent Night," but when Lindsay later comes to her and asks for a friend, Stella responds immediately, "You've got one." Stella often calls Lindsay "kiddo," which indicates how close the two have become since Lindsay came to New York. When Lindsay must return to Montana to testify in a murder trial, Stella, not Mac, is the one she informs first. Just a few minutes before the trial begins, Lindsay calls her to talk to her and Stella comforts her. Also, when Lindsay is in the lab and worried about how the chemicals may affect the baby, it's Stella she turns to. Lindsay tells her "a friend from the Jersey lab" was pregnant. Stella offers comfort and tells her to tell her "friend" congratsand that if her"friends" coworkers are like Lindsay's, they'd all work on it with her. Stella is also good friends with Det. Don Flack. They often work cases together, and she appreciates his sense of humor. In episode 221, "All Access," Flack is especially gentle with Stella when he comes to take her statement following her ordeal. He tells her she's a friend and she responds that he is a "very good friend." In "Charge of this Post" (episode 224), she takes turns with the other team members staying at Flack's bedside as he recovers from his near-fatal injuries from a bomb blast.

I saw the preveiw for next weeks episode. Stella gets hit by a car. Who do you think it is? the killer or a innocent person? Let us know your thoughts about it.
Do you find this valuable?
