Lady Heather's Box

Thursday, 13 February 2003

Episode Synopsis
In the first, Grissom discovers that the murders of a party guest at a nightclub and a man who was working out in his apartment are related. The deaths were similar and both victims were employees of Lady Heather (Melinda Clarke), a dominatrix who penetrates Grissom's cold exterior to reveal his vulnerability. The second case involves Catherine's ex-husband, Eddie (Timothy Carhart), who vanishes after his car crashes while he's traveling with their daughter. Sara leads the investigation, but Catherine quickly becomes displeased with the way it's being handled.

This was good, but not as good as I hoped! Sara was as mean as possible in this one! When Cath got that call, did you see Nick's face, he is definetely in love with her, and not just on the show! My favourite part was when Cath got in the car and started racing off to find her daughter, I already knew Eddie was gonna die, and Lindsey was trapped in a sinking car, but the way cath saved her, it would have been better with witnesses but still! Although I think it's unfair, whenever something bad happens to Cath, nobody cares, and her so-called best friend - Sara, just has a go at her, and doesn't even end up solving the case! She should really start something with Nick, and Sara and Greg are so perfect for each other!

This is one of my most favorite episodes to date. I really enjoyed the way the writer's dipped into Grissom's personal life, letting us know he is not just a scientist/bug geek. Marg's acting was top-notch in this one, so much going on in her character

Gil should go to LH and tell her, "I' m sorry are just words too, just like "stop"--but I come to you to show you with more than words." This is a real relationship and should be cultivated. She is unique enough for his special needs. The other women i

Liked the chemistry between Grissom and Lady Heather, just didn't think too much of the plot. A pro like Grissom should have never crossed the professional boundaries he did with her. You wait until the case is closed, then pursue the relationship.

One of my favorite episodes of all time. I adore Lady Heather, and did Grissom spend the night with her??? Go Gris!!! YAY!

Cath turned in a wonderful performance. Her panic on the phone trying to find Lindsay was palpable. Great chemistry btwn Nick and Cath. LH & Griss had wonderful chemistry together!

Cool to see Gris have someone get under his skin. I thought only Cath could do that, being a good friend (She was there when he has going to have the ear surgery, remember?) . SpaceJammies had it right, Gris shouda waited for the case to close before he

I like Melinda Clark as an actress but didn´t care much for the plot. It was too unrealistic that Gris would get romantic in the middle of a case- if he was prepared to do that why hasn´t he acted on his feelings for Sara already? And too much of the ep w

Great episode ! I liked its dark atmosphere. Although, or perhaps because Lady Heather is not a moral character, she is quite fascinating and even Gris feels attracted to her. They both occupy a kind of social outsider position and they play on an equal i

Dominating the dominatriz? Does this show us that it takes more than plain vanilla sex to interest the ever-preoccupied Griss? Ssspank me!

This was an okay episode. I was glad to see Lady Heather come back, but it seemed out of character for her to be upset at Grissom for thinking she was a killer. I did like when Catherine had to save Lindsey, I thought that was good. I wanted to slap th

Poor Cath! I can only imagine how she must have felt hearing Lindsay panic over the phone. Come on Grissom! You and Lady Heather should SO hook up. Finally someone who understands Gris and he blows it!!!

woah, one of the best epis ever....i found it revolved mostly around the characters and not sp much the cases, but it was nice. I was having a heart attack when Lindsay was in the car. loved it!
julz_hutchie 20 April 2005  Vote: 10/10
I totally love this one! My heart broke for Cath. and Sara was a complete biatch Cath yeah I agree why would you give Sara the case with Cath's ex and her daughter! At the end when Linds was consoling Cath it was so touching! It's definelty one of my favo

This is supposed to be the CSI movie. But is not that good. I preffer other CSI episodes than this one. Too long, not full well made, but the scene of Catherine rescuing her daughther is lovely. Lovely?

Fantastic! I'm a huge Sara fan and I felt horrible when Cath treated her like crap. On the other hand I loved how Cath went to save her little girl

loved this ep...def one of my all-time favorites. cath's emotion was so believable. loved the gris/lady heather plot though if for no other reason then it means sara isn't the one who got him!

Lady Heather Really shows Gil's Vunerable side in this one , shows that maybe his is part human , just not all Nerd . That He can feel , I just wish that it would have played out a little longer , maybe showing a love relationship between them , That wou

This episode was great! I understand that Sara had to be a tough nuggy though and figure out what happend. My heart broke when I saw cath crying and lindsey came to her and said "its ok mommy..."

I love this episode! I can't believe I'll see the day that Grissom will meet someone who'll touch his sensitive side.... Is there a love blossoming? Well, that's for the writers to know and me to find out, unfortunately... And... does Nick and Cath have

this ep was good. Loved it when Cath saved Lindsay from the car, i also think it would off been better with a witness. I know Cath was bitchy to Sara but its understandable, she just lost her ex and her little girl almost drowned.its stress and like no on

this eppy was great! i feel so sad for cath, her ex just died, her daught just faced death and sara is giving her crap that she shouldnt be involved with the cast, it's cath flippin' life! i think nick cares alot about cath and i want to see them hook up.

this is a prime example of why you should watch the eps in ORDER...Ive almost finshed season five and I didn't know Eddie was dead! Very dramatic...Good on Sara for controlling Catherine. What DID Grissom do with Lady Heather? I'll have to re-watch but i

Finally we see something of Grissom other than just the workaholic he usually is... still wish they had shown more with him and lady heather but it was a good way to keep you watching...hard to say if anything happened between them or not:(
