What a great episode. I have to commend the writers of the show. I didn't think they were gonna actually kill off Warrick, but he went in a blaze of glory.
All the really cool science-y stuff was put to the backburners...there was some, but this episode was character driven. It offers some possible hints toward the future (Warrick has a son?), and a great catalyst to what will become in the future. With William Petersen leaving the show in nine episodes, I guess this is what starts the entire storyline.
Sarah Sidle's back...and looking really OLD. She really didn't add anything to the show, but it was cool to get the gang back together...sorta.
After CSI Miami's season premiere, I was afraid they were gonna fake Warrick's death, like they did Horatio's...but I'm glad they didn't. Its not that I don't like Warrick, but it's nice to get new characters out there.
Yeah, they kinda lost me the last two seasons; I watched most of the episodes, but I hadn't made them a "must-watch" as I had in the past. This episode was tremendous though; while I grieve for the loss of Grissom soon, I'm also excited by Laurence Fishburne taking his place. As long as Sarah stays away for a while- a long while.
I was surprised at the turnout at the FEC. I had trouble finding parking at the metro so I didn't get down there until 10:30ish and there were about 100-150 people down there. The crowd was so big around the podium that we shut down the sidewalk.
