Episode Summary

When a Sara in crisis is accused of murder, it's race against time and a suspect from the past to clear her name.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

No results found.
  • Too cliched

    Every crime drama does at least one episode where one of the team members is suspected of murder and there is a mountain of evidence against him/her. And you can bet the house every time that he/she will be cleared by the end of the hour.

    Given TV's hostile attitude towards heterosexual marriage, I'm glad the writers finally decided to end the sham marriage between Sara and Grissom. It was completely unrealistic that they got married and for him to live on the other side of the world from the beginning.moreless
  • Sara is suspected of murder just as she is going through a personal crisis. The rest of the team works to clear her name.

    When I first saw the trailer for this episode I was discouraged. The first reason being it was obvious from the start Sara was innocent. Second the basic plot formula of this episode has been seen countless times. I did not have high hopes when this episode began, but when it ended I was pleasantly surprised because it was better than I expected. I found myself hooked on this episode's well written story. As I mentioned previously I knew Sara was innocent, but I could not figure out just how the team was going to prove it. That in my mind is what made the episode work. What also made "Forget Me Not" so good was something I don't think any of us saw coming. I was just as shocked as the team when Sara revealed that she and Grissom had gotten a divorce. A true surprise there. Jorja Fox has never been better. The viewer could almost feel her sadness. Ted Danson was excellent yet again here. He has been consistently good since he joined the show. Defintely make some time to see this great episode. It is one of season thirteen's best.moreless
  • The New Detective

    I hope this Crawford dude isn't a replacement for Vartann. By the way, where is Vartann? He has only been in one episode this season. Brass and Vartann are the two Detectives that belong with this team. BRING BACK VARTANN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Are we done with Sara's problems now?

    Seriously, I love CSI. I even loved the suspenseful WTF is going on in this episode. Of course we knew Sara didn't do it but who did? and why? But I am SO tired of Sara's problems and attitude. I was done with her before she left and came back. She's just want to slap her and tell her to grow a pair and suck it up. This episode reminded me WHY I wanted to slap her. Seriously, everyone knows she didn't do it so why hide ANYTHING from her teammates who will only find out the inevitable? I'm not surprised in the slightest that she and Grissom have split. I hope this is the end of it. If we're going to do a Sara-centric episode again, PLEASE make it less whiny-brat Sara and more I-can-act-like-an-adult Sara.

    Other than that rant above, I thought this was a pretty good episode. I loved the how the camaraderie between the team was shaken a bit by the case's close-to-home blow and it mixes it up to have the "newbies" in there with their opinions. The sweet moment at the end between my boys (Greg and Nick - yum!) and Sara was worth waiting for.

    Did I miss Brass this episode? Who is the new detective?moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: When Stokes and Crawford confront Basderic in the parking garage, Stokes takes Basderic's pistol, removes the magazine and hands both to Crawford. Crawford puts the magazine in his pocket and holds the pistol in his hand. When they release Basderic, Crawford inserts the switched magazine with blank rounds into the pistol and hands it back to Basderic.

      Later, at his house, Basderic fires three rounds at Sidle. First problem is that when you remove a magazine from an automatic pistol, there is still one live round in the chamber and the first shot would have struck Sidle. Secondly, Basderic fires three quick rounds. Blank cartridges cannot generate the pressure needed to cycle the slide unless the weapon is fitted with a special device.

      The first live round would have ejected and activated the slide, but the second blank round would not making it impossible to fire another blank round.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Sara: I didn't mean to shut you guys out. I didn't tell you about Grissom and me because I didn't believe it myself. You know, we made that dinner reservation together before we split up, and as I sat there alone in the restaurant I honestly expected him to show up.
      Nick: I think that we all like the idea of you two being together. And maybe it was because that was our way of-of hanging on to him just a little bit, you know. But if it's over, it's over.
      Greg: Hey, you can't sit around waiting forever.
      Nick: And you'll always have us.
      Greg: Like it or not.
      Sara: Thank you. Thank you for not giving up on me.

    • Crawford: I know this detective badge may be new, but I've been a cop long enough to know how to read between the lines.
      D.B.: That's the difference between what you do and what I do. I don't read between the lines, I stay with the evidence.

    • Finn: (at the autopy room) I figured he'd have to be really good-looking to get Sara's interest.
      Robbins: Do you mind? You're talking about people we know.
      Finn: Are we Team Grissom or are we Team Sara? Which one are we protecting?
      Robbins: I see no reason why we can't protect both.

    • Morgan: (while taking her blood) Just a warning. It's been a while since I've stuck someone.
      Sara: Hodges is the expert.
      Morgan: I don't think you want to be around Hodges and a sharp object right now.
      Sara: How come? He thinks I cheated on Grissom.
      Morgan: Might as well have cheated on God. In Hodges' eyes, you pretty much did.

    • Sara: Greg, I never touched him he's setting me up. He set me up at the hotel and he's setting me up now.
      Greg: (Plays the video evidence of her confronting Basderic) Why were you even there? Russel tells you to go home and you go to Basderic's workplace.
      Sara: I know, I screwed up okay.
      Greg: Yeah.
      Sara: But I'm telling you that Basderic is the one behind this. Okay, he left Edie's necklace because he wanted me to know that it was him. (Refering to the video) Where's the rest of it?
      Greg: That's all there is. There's only the one camera. But Sara, the DA has more than enough to charge you with. You were clearly the aggressor here.
      Sara: No, look at that. He knew exactly where to stand for the camera. He lured me to that spot. The only physical contact that I had with Basderic is on that video.
      Greg: Then how did he get those injuries?
      Sara: Greg, how long have you known me? You know I didn't do this.
