Storyline

Sara Sidle comes face to face with an old, unresolved case when she investigates the death of Keira Dillinger. The young woman was a freshman the University of West Las Vegas and she fell, or was pushed, from her eighth floor dormitory room window. Sara learns that until recently, she had been dating Marlon West who had previously been found not guilty of murder when his sister Hannah falsely confessed to the crime (see Episode 6.18). Hannah is a certified genius and Sara is again convinced that she is being manipulated by her. Overall, Sara is depressed and has grown weary of the death around her and what she sees as the futility of what they try to accomplish. Written by garykmcd

The Beginning Of The End?
19 February 2008 | by robertconnorSee all my reviews

When two participants in a particularly disturbing case resurface in Sara's life, what was set in motion during her abduction and entrapment in the desert comes to an emotional conclusion...

So we bid farewell to one of CSI's more interesting characters (and by default, one of CSI's more interesting actors). Whatever the reasons and machinations of Fox's decision to depart this hugely popular TV series, her departure cannot but leave a gaping hole. Amidst her airbrushed and artificially enhanced colleagues (Petersen notwithstanding), Fox always managed to provide a spikey, compelling edge to proceedings. The beautifully orchestrated 'slow-burn' development of the Grissom-Sidle relationship was a series highlight - a combination of the slow-tease, and an ultra-classy double-act between Petersen and Fox (all kudos to the writers too). In combination, it's almost as if we can't quite remember when it really all began (the first episode Fox appears perhaps?)... regardless, an exquisite combination that will be sorely missed as the series progresses.

Here's hoping Jorja Fox finds other projects that will reward both us and her... here's hoping Sara Sidle lays hers ghosts to rest and returns refreshed to irritate and enthrall. Fingers crossed!
