February 8, 2007: The Return of Grissom Season 7, Episode 15

It's time for everyone to disagree with me again. When my opinion about an episode sways drastically one way or the other, it usually means everyone will think the exact opposite. So here's your chance. This was the best episode of the season! If there were still any lingering questions about Keppler possibly showing up in a few episodes with Gil, they are all gone now. Last week, what I thought was a clear assumption that Keppler killed this "Amy" girl wasn't true at all. And thinking he killed the guy he thought raped her also turned out to be false. So I guess Mike really was trying to put his past behind him and move on. He was a cop that killed an innocent man, but in the end he actually didn't seem that dirty compared to his buddy Frank. Man, Frank was really just going to hand the gun over so they could finger his buddy for the murder? That's crazy. And now, Mike is gone. A tough break since we finally saw some real emotion when he slammed the pimp's head into the table. And hey, let's not forget the return of scraggly Gil Grissom! I kind of like the new Shaggy look on him and some time off gave him a much lighter side, too. He was very cordial with Sara. She told him that he looked good; he mentioned he'd see her that night. I had read that her initial reaction to his return would be negative, but I didn't pick that up in this episode. I mean, OK, she backed away because she smelled like garbage. But otherwise, Sara looked happy to see Gil back and he looked really happy to see her, too. Let's see how much this heats up again. One of my favorite bits of dialogue was in this episode as well, when Grissom joined Warrick in the field and asked him what he was doing: Warrick: I'm just following the leads off some serialized butt implants. Grissom: I missed Las Vegas. Ha. So now without Keppler, Gil will finally open his box, and next week we'll be back on the miniature-killer case. But, I'm assuming Keppler will come up again since Catherine was way too distraught over his death. I know the episode I missed a few weeks ago ended with them having a drink, but maybe the night didn't end there? A little hanky panky between Cat and Keppler? There had to be something with them; otherwise, how could she be attached enough in this short period of time to show that much emotion over him? We shall see. Until next week, friends. show less
