This episode has all the bits that I love - excellent writing, excellent acting and most of all it has lots of Sara Sidle.
As usual, even though the episode is very serious it has some very funny moments, for example, when Grissom pulls part of the skull away with the tar and the dialogue that follows, very well done.
A nice piece of character development. Some people don't like all that stuff on the show but I must admit that I really like it. The emphasis is always on the crimes but sometimes in the middle of it all they manage to give us a glimpse of who these people are and what makes them tick.
Another bonus in the episode is the "discussion" between Sara and Catherine. It was well acted and watching these two strong women having it out was very well errr hot!!!!
