CSI: Iced Out of Sequence?
I'm wandering around the end of 5 today.
At the end of this episode, the toe tag on James BillMayer reads "2/25/2005." Yet its airdate was 5/12/2005.
Big Middle aired on 2/24/2005, but there was a week gap between that episode and Compulsion (3/10/2005).
I'm not sure why Iced was bumped, although perhaps its comedic overtones were considered more suitable as the lead in to Grave Danger. Apparently, 3/03 was either a preemption or a rerun.
Anyhow, I thought I'd throw this out there.

CSI: Weeping Willows and Grissom's Possible Hypocrisy?
Watched this episode this morning, and it's very evident that Grissom is rather moralistic about Catherine possibly getting involved with strange guys in bars.
To backtrack, some of us (not all) believe that, by the time of this episode, Sara and Grissom are already involved in the relationship that the show didn't confirm for another year.
OTOH, apparently, the show was planning to reveal it as early as Episode 5 in the next season. Since I have no idea how far in advance showrunners may have plotted out major events in upcoming seasons, whether or not Gumdrops was already on the drawing board is a matter of pure conjecture.
I suppose the question is where does Grissom get the nerve to chide Catherine if he is already having sex with his subordinate? On one hand, I suppose that could be taken as confirmation that they weren't involved yet, but, on the other, the terms he chides her with are quite interesting. Upon learning about her interactions with Adam Novak, he tells her she has to recuse herself. Then when she says she did nothing wrong:
"We all live in glass houses, Catherine. You gotta be careful where you take your shower."
The fact that Grissom includes himself as living in a glass house, i.e., actually having a personal life that could be open to scrutiny, is perhaps telling. And the whole shower thing is downright strange coming from Grissom. If I were Catherine, I might have wondered when the last time he showered in someone else's shower... although I think her first thought would have been Lady Heather, not Sara Sidle.
(As a sidenote, apparently, in Gumdrops, Sara was supposed to step out of the shower in the hotel room where she had had sex with Grissom the night before. Whether or not Greg was there when she did is dependent on the version floated online.)
At the end of the episode, he is still angry with her. Personally, I think a large part of it was concern for her safety. That meeting strange guys in bars to find "a little human contact" could have dangerous consequences, not only in terms of her job but of her life. Two girls who went to the same bar ended up dead, after all. But, of course, he doesn't say that. Instead he says:
"I guess that's why I don't go out."
And, really, if he and Sara have been sexually involved for a little over 2 months at that point (my timeline--not anyone else's), then it's true: he/they don't go out. Their relationship is the epitome of privacy, even after everyone knows about it 2 years later.
Nor did he get involved with a stranger in a bar but the girl he's loved for 7 years, the girl who is his most intimate friend, as well as his lover.
Of course, I recognize all of this can be taken as proof of the exact opposite of my read. But that's the beauty and continuing fascination of GSR: more ambiguity than a Henry James novel.
Maybe.

CSI: GSR Proposal Scene
In case anyone wants to read the script for the proposal, the below is it. For the sake of brevity and space, I'm only going to use G and S for Grissom and Sara, and I'm not going to copy the wide spacing script format.
Grissom, in a beekeeping veiled her, works at his box hive. He puts scraps of burlap into the fire pit of a hand-held smoker, and lights it with an igniter. He squeezes the bellows, causing smoke to come out the nozzle.
Bees fly out of the hive. Grissom removes a frame, studies the comb in it. Satisfied, he places it back in the box.
As he picks up another frame, a figure approaches, dressed in complete beekeeping gear: white jumpsuit, veiled hat, and gloves. Grissom recognizes Sara behind the veil.
G: Where did you get that getup?
S: Hey, whatever it takes to get some time with you.
Could Grissom love her any more than he does right now?
S: How's the study going? Any sign of Colony Collapse Disorder?
G: Nope. So far, it's healthy.
S: (re: the smoker) Nothing healthy about smoking.
G: The scent confused the guard bees. Then they don't emit the pheromone that tells the colony there's an intruder.
S: (to the bees) Trust me, he's harmless.
The netting can't conceal her smile. She leans into for a closer look at the bees on the frame.
S: Who's who?
Grissom points out the members of the colony.
G: These are the workers, infertile females.
He lets a few worker bees alight on his hand.
S: Sure they won't sting?
G: As long as you don't swat them, or close your hand. Take off a glove.
Sara, uncertain, removes a glove. Grissom gently pulls her left hand closer to the bees. A few workers land on her outstretched palm.
G: See?
S: I trust you.
G: The worker bees defend the hive, procure the pollen, make the honey... nurture the larvae and pupae in each of these brood cells.
He points out the brood cells on the comb. Each one is capped with a thin crust of wax. Sara's fascinated by the bees, can't take her eyes off them. He can't take his eyes off her. Though this isn't the time or place he was thinking of doing it, he says--
G: Let's get married.
Sara looks up at him. A long beat. She unconsciously puts one of her hands on top of the other...causing the bees to sting her.
S: Ouch!
She starts picking at the stinger.
G: Don't pick it out. Makes it worse...
He takes a needle and some alcohol out of his kit.
G: ... Squeezes more venom into your bloodstream.
He dips the needle in the alcohol. Takes her hand. Scrapes the stinger free with the needle. As he does--
G: So...?
S: Yeah. Okay. Let's do it.
They each take this moment to process what's happened. Then they move in to kiss--but, realizing they're wearing veiled hats, they settle for a hug.
As bees swirl around them--
ECU - bees in the comb
Doing what bees do to ensure the survival of the species.

This is not a Hepburn-Tracy romcom. It actually deals with things that may be more relevant in this era than we could ever have expected. Lovely performances and absolutely stunning Kate.
