Bookends--beginning and ending

10/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A good introduction of Dr. Langston as we lose Gil Grissom, the brain of this excellent series. This episode is a complicated story, following the first part of it and bringing to close murders that happened earlier in the season as well as a serial killer from a decade ago. The real heart of the story is Grissom's leaving. Every main character gets to have a personal conversation with Gil--or as personal as Grissom ever lets anyone get. Even snarly Hodges comes across as sad to see Grissom leave. The conversation between Grissom and Nick speaks volumes to the relationship between the two. Grissom has been depressed and lonely all season, especially after the departure of his one and only woman, Sara. We have not seen Grissom dwell on the absence of Warrick, but that death probably plays a big role in Grissom's decision, but ultimately, its Sara he leaves for. In the beginning of CSI, we saw Grissom (2nd episode) taking photos of flying dummies as Sara walks up behind him, he says her name before he turns around. The ending of this episode is the matching bookend to that first episode. The alpha and omega, the beginning and ending--perfectly written for these two lovers, who made geek-love a possibility! There are no words spoken between the two--no need for words as the camera pans around the couple and fades into the lush green jungle. This ending really illustrates the writing capabilities of Carol Mendelsohn--she did good! Here's hoping the best for Billy Petersen and Jorja Fox--I hope to see them again.
