What's the deal behind Grissom and Sara?
Like I've said many times before, I've only recently become a huge fan of the show, but I've missed a couple of seasons. I've desperately been trying to round up all the episodes and see them, but I've got gaps.
When did Sara start liking Grissom and when did Grissom start liking Sara?
Who acted first and in what episode?
What happened from there?
OK, those are pretty broad questions, but are there any episodes that you remember really emphasize progressions in their relationship? I've seen Nesting Dolls, Butterflied, and Play With Fire.

He likes her, She likes him and neither one will actually come out and say it. There was anamazing speech at the end of the eppy butterflied, tho; here check it out:
GRISSOM: (v.o.) Somebody young and beautiful shows up. Somebody we could care about. She offers us a new life with her ... ... but we have a big decision to make, right? Because we have to risk everything we've worked for in order to have her.
couldn't do it ...
(He refocuses on LURIE; their eyes meet.)
GRISSOM: ... but you did. You risked it all ...
(LURIE looks away, unable to hold GRISSOM'S knowing gaze.)
GRISSOM: ... and she showed you a wonderful life, didn't she? But then she took it away and gave it to somebody else, ...
GRISSOM: (v.o.) ... and you were lost.
GRISSOM: So you took her life.
GRISSOM: You killed them both, and now you have nothing.
VINCENT LURIE: (nods) I'm still here.
GRISSOM: Are you?
(Through the glass, SARA watches GRISSOM sitting at the interview table, her image reflected in the glass. Just how long she's been standing there, how much she's heard, is anyone's guess.)
(Camera refocuses on SARA.)
Of course we know tht he is talking about Sara...... I think this is a great eppy, really portrays their "relationship"
see, i never thought that he was speaking about sara there, rather that he was speaking of something farther back (remember there was an episode where a skeletal expert was called in who was somehow in a former relationship with gil) and she was listening in as though taking this in as an explaination of why he wasnt going after her.
think of what we know of saras history- maybe what we are missing something- beauty is not what everyone else perceives of her- she is not physically perfect, like cath, and she has a very ugly history- appreciating beauty may be as simple as the fact that he began to look beyond appearances to things that are truly beautiful...personal strength, the ability to keep going, and the qualities that he appreciates in her from a non-romantic perspective- the same way that some of us see people around us as beautiful, rather than looking merely at their exterior. he is not, however, going to let her get things easy because of what shes been through- hes going to make her work to earn her position- just because you have it hard doesnt mean you get any breaks.
i dont rather like placing the two of them romantically together, in part because of the age difference (yes, i know, it doesnt really matter) and, beyond that, i wonder if there is something from between the time when she was in foster care to her adult life in which gil helped her in some way that has made her, in her insecure attachments (trust me, this woman is insecure to the core), believe that there is something more between them other than a very special friendship because he is one of the few people who understands her self-isolating habits.
sorry, dear sara/gil fan'shippers, but i just cannot go with you on this one- i am, however, up to a jolly debate if you are willing to jive with me!
