Number of new episdoes: 6

Where we left off: Sara (Jorja Fox) left town - and Grissom. Warrick had a drug, alcohol and stripper-fueled meltdown and was accused of murder. What's next: "Grissom will be a little under the weather when we come back," exec producer Naren Shankar says. This necessitates a visit to his apartment from Catherine. "Basically she's there to snoop under the ruse of filling him in on a case," Shankar says. "She wants to know where he is with his relationship with Sara. She wanders into the kitchen and hits pay dirt." Career crisis: Grissom isn't looking to replace Sara, but Bonnie Bedelia guest stars as a woman from his past. He'll also question how long he can remain in his profession. (Petersen's contract is up this season. No word yet if he'll stay on.)
