Loved It. Scary visuals, but still really good.

The episode was good, just because it's CSI, and the stargazing/makeout spot comment was cute, Gris did the whole eyebrow thing like he was thinking about it...hmmm. I am starting to get aggravated about the whole GSR thing tho. The writters should just g

I couldn't seem to get into this episode, the characters seemed flat and uninteresting. I hate the split in the cast. It just isn't clicking for me anymore.

Plot line was confusing, but very good. I think my heart skipped a beat when the woman opened her eyes for the first time. And Greg needs to lighten up a bit. I agree with Sophia. He used to be fun.

I really didn't like the episode :( which is a really sad thing because I am such a big fan of CSI. There were only a few parts that I enjoyed such as - Gris: "This was always a good place for star gazing"; Sara: "It's also a good make-out spot....so I've

Great episode... But I wished that that lil conversation between Sofia and Greg could have been much more effective if Sara or Nick has said that to Greg. The starting of the episode was really good tho..the case was ok .

I thought it was a good storyline but there was no real connections made between the characters, it was basically all around the case where as other episodes have another storyline with it!

I love this one it was great this case really affected Greg it showed how much he really cared. He will get over it but it made him think. This was a good one. Grissom and Sarah work great together but not better than Greg and Sarah.

I can't belive Grissom! If that had been Horatio it would of been quick get the paramedics! But Grissom it was like oh and if you could get the paramedics great 'cause there's a barelly alive woman here!!

Powerful Episode, nice to see the emotion in Greg. Some nice action from Brass, maybe he felt mroe effected 'cause these people were obsessed with having babies and Ellie was adopted? The ending for prefect but more reasoning about the suicide needed to b
