yes trace.... but... that makes it sound like even in his death he is a main focus... when will he just go away!
Some dialogue was cut from LLV that would have alleviated at least some of the tension between Grissom and Sara, and would have really made Sara's reaction to his leaving even that much more quizzical (because her base reaction was there). Basically, the writers had a way to tone down the angst, and they chose not to do so. I think there are many reasons for this, but ultimately I think it's because this arc actually has a purpose, and I don't think it will be fully revealed until May sweeps. I think we're going to see the angstball in full force in LoG, and then there will be moments of connect and disconnect between Grissom and Sara for a while, until the full resolution nearer to the finale. I have some vague information extending a few episodes beyond what we've spoiled here, but other than that, I'm hesitant to speculate in detail about how this may play out. Rewrites are headache enough, so much so that I'm very wary of speculating about chatter as it relates to the end of the season. At this time, I don't know for sure how this will end.
Sara is about as far from secure as you can get, but at the same time she seems more steady than Grissom in a way. He's losing it at the lab and following her around, and basically wanting to hash this out, work be damned. It probably won't play out at all comical, but the irony of her being the one to try and shut down a personal conversation because of work while he completely ignores the setting in favor of emotional resolution is not lost on me.
Also, I don't think Grissom realized at all that this was an if/then type decision, in that if he went on sabbatical then he was going to lose Sara, therefore he decided to deal with it all when he got back. I think Grissom is viewing this as "Oh, she's not happy I dropped this in her lap, but it'll blow over when I get home." The gift is the first real indicator that he realizes all is not well on the homefront, although I think he still doesn't realize the depth of her hurt (although that word doesn't really encompass what's going on, I think). By the time he gets home, though, he's got the message loud and clear; he just needs a decoder to figure out what the hell she's trying to tell him, because her explanation, her actions, the absolute difference in her demeanor has to terrify him, because yeah, this is a whole different Sara.
So, Grissom knows what happened with the gift before he gets back to Vegas?
No, I think that him sending it at all indicates that he realizes something is very wrong, and that what he thought might blow over, isn't exactly blowing over. Because, and this is my impression/interpretation, I'm getting the feeling that if Grissom is calling, Sara is screening and not picking up the phone.
I'm personally under the impression that Sara's back story, probably even more of it than we know, is a huge driving force behind her actions.
You are correct.
I think that Sara has worked past a lot of her issues, but given the severity of her situation, I don't think she'll ever live a carefree life where there are absolutely no triggers. Grissom has triggered something in a way that is so devastating that she can't seem to find a way out of the pit she crawled in to in his absence, and while that may have been unintentional on his part, that's really a moot point because the damage is done.
Really this has nothing to do with anything specific, but Gibby and I were talking the other night, and I said something about feeling sorry for Grissom. Can you imagine? He goes away for a change of scenery and a breath of fresh air, and he comes home to mutiny, The Rock of his team being first on board the Mutiny Express, the team all fractured, Keppler dying, his relationship with Sara shot to hell, and the return of the MCSK. Welcome home, Griss.
I know I've mentioned several times how Grissom is chasing Sara around the lab, and how she is doing her best to evade him, but if there is a bright side, it might be this: You know how the antis call Sara a stalker because of PwF? If LoG plays out as written, she hasn't got anything on Grissom and the way he follows her around the lab when he gets back. Depending on how it's played, he will likely have the edge in the anti definition of stalker-ish behavior. That alone warms my canon loving heart. Talk about coming full circle? Geez.
Only Grissom and Sara's discussion is personal (i.e. not related to mutiny) -- it's about what she does with the gift and why. Angstball, people, angstball.
|Mystery, could the gift itself have triggered something form sara's |
past? Is she drinking or doing something distructive that is
heartbreaking? and i cant help but feel that the fostercare angle affects sara in some way and that could be the heartbreaking ending, maybe she has some kind of conversation about her past that grissom hears?
I saw you post that you have a few spoilers for future epps that we dont know yet, can you share or give hints?
mystery i heard a rumor about hodges asking kepplar to drinks in this ep. was the person who mentioned it joking? gibby, im not sure if you can tell this just by reading, but does kepplar have a gay vibe?
Yeah, they're on for drinks, apparently gibby
finally something a little on the lighter side
|*gasp* I knew it! I think Hodges definately has a crush on Grissom.|
I'm not even sure I could process all of that!
But what I could proces was very sad. Why can't they just leave the GSR alone?!
*in high-pitched voice*
Yeah, I think I'm gonna cry...
