Well, it’s a rough day for the ladies and NO MISTAKE.
Roughest day of all surely goes to Pamela
… who has been raped and left for dead, and who ends the episode in a permanent vegetative state. Aaaaand, whose plight I am about to belittle for the rest of this entry, with petty comparisons to lesser problems. Sorry. BUT THAT’S JUST HOW I ROLL.
So, Sara has a rough day because she ends up bonding with Pamela just a little too much (NIASW). Basically, she has no other friends.
Listen to yourself, woman! Even Grissom is worried
Grissom: You max out on overtime every month. You go home and listen to your police scanner, or read forensic textbooks.
and his only hobbies are riding rollercoasters, and pouting.
Sara’s woes aren’t helped by that Olde 2001 Technologie.
Meanwhile, I’m sure we can all guess who is the source of Catherine’s problems.
Oops, I mean
What has he done now? Only taken out a second mortgage on their house! He doesn’t even live there any more!
When Catherine confronts him, he promptly one-ups himself by producing the worst line of dialogue yet to grace CSI.
Eddie: The only thing I robbed you of was good sex.
Essentially: Eddie is pretty much the root of everything crappy in Catherine’s life.
Meanwhile, guess who’s feeling perky?
It’s only our old mucker Gil Grissom, who makes a speciality this episode of looming helpfully between the ladies and their problems.
It’s just a shame that Sara isn’t more appreciative.
Sara: I wish I was like you, Grissom. I wish I didn’t feel anything.
Tough gig, Gil. Tough gig.
