Julia Winston is Horatio's ex-girlfriend and Kyle Harmon's mother who reappears during the murder investigation of her current husband, Raising Caine. With her husband Bill Winston dead, Julia came to serve as the show's antagonist, but it was also shown she is being forced into some evil actions by a psychotic ex-lover, Ron Saris.
He then marries Julia in Going Ballistic, which upset Horatio greatly. She is one of the prime suspects in the shooting of Horatio and has proven to be a conflicted and mysterious woman. In Season Seven's episode Bombshell it is revealed she suffers from Bipolar disorder but had stopped taking her medication for it at Ron's urging. In Season 7 Dissolved she is put in a mental hospital after she shoots up the morgue demanding that Kyle comes with her, which is the last time Julia makes an appearance on the show.
Julia is played by Elizabeth Berkley, who has heterochromia iridis - her right eye is partially brown and partially green, while her left eye is entirely green. This has had no apparent effect on Julia as a character but is notable nonetheless.
