Oh dear! This is a sad episode about a dead baby!

Upset Mum

Babymamma. Pretty sad.

Catherine Willows maternal empathy

I weep for you! And for all womankind!!

As it’s one of this season’s better episodes plot-wise I won’t reveal what happens but suffice it to say that none of the family to whom the baby belongs comes off too well, as the investigation probes the HIDDEN SECRETS OF THEIR PAST.

Grissom freaks everybody out by getting super-emotionally involved in the case.

Grissom levitates

Also by levitating

He Does. Not. Like. a dead baby

Non PPP

Thin lipped face of doom sez: "This situation is TOO SEVERE for a PPP"

Patented Petersen Pout

"Well... maybe"

and he starts shouting at all the CSIs when things get tricky, to varying effect.

Nick Stokes whut

Nick: shocked

Greg Sanders scared

Greg: afraid

Warrick running

Warrick: running slowly on purpose so as not to make Grissom look bad

There’s also an excellent Inappropriate Grissom moment when the baby’s body is discovered.

Grissom: Stand back.

Fatty McGlasses: Well we gotta have the pictures - the coroner will be all over us.

Grissom: I'll get the pictures.

Inappropriate Grissom

Grissom doh

FAUX PAS

Ahem. Anyway Sara has a word with Grissom about his reaction to the case

Patented Petersen Pout

PPP sez... "Maybe I am getting too emotionally involved"

and soon he is back to his old incisive self. Though that doesn’t stop him calling on the seriously dubious psychiatrist again, who has another winning insight to provide.

Psychiatrist

"in some cases women have been known to kill their children as a way to pay back a spouse."

In other news, Warrick has been investing in some bad sunglasses of his own

Oh wait they're not as effortlessly cool as I hoped

Nick carries out an ‘unscientific whiff test’ (something about the phrase just tickles me) and the lab’s own Fatty McGlasses, who seems to be the go-to guy on handwriting and other documentation, is back. I wouldn’t mind him but he seems to be permanently grumpy.

What do you expect? EVEN GRISSOM CAN OUTRUN ME.
