HUH. That’s IT?! That’s all she has to give to the man she’s supposedly loved for practically a DECADE and that she’s ENGAGED to and she just decides to skip town?! Okay so I think the writers wrote Sara brilliantly this episode especially with the domestic abuse case and that absolutely HORRID genius brat and I understand why she felt she had to leave and I thought the letter really hit the spot …… but it was like the perfect ending if she and Grissom had this unrequited love and she was telling him how she really felt but also that she had to go … but the fact they were going to get married …..
The other side if looking at it is that Sara felt she had to do it like that because it would be just too hard to actually say goodbye etc. which I understand but personally I think it’s a very unsatisfactory ending to their “epic romance” for shippers. Now I know the writers had to find a way to write Sara out but I think it would have made more sense to kill her off instead of having her get engaged and skip town like she has pre-wedding Chandleresque jitters.
Overall I liked this episode (but they didn’t exactly have to try hard to beat last week’s right …). I hate that little girl with a fierce passion and when she broke down and cried at the end I totally didn’t feel any sympathy towards her.
What I found odd was that out of all the CSIs bar Grissom that the writers chose to have a ‘moment’ with Sara it was Warwick. Firstly he hasn’t done anything for so long I’d practically forgotten that he was even in the show at all and okay Sara did kind of have a couple personal moments with Greg over the past couple of weeks but I still would have happier having that scene with Nick or Greg. Or if I was looking for a laugh then with Catherine.
