Grissom: Grissom.


  • 7am by Dirty Vegas.


  • When Sara is narrating her reconstruction of the shooting to Melissa, she says that her husband "...leaned up from a prone position..." to shoot her. However, in the visually reconstructed scene, the husband is lying on his back - that's supine, not prone. Prone is lying on one's stomach.


  • In this episode, Sara talks to Grissom about her "older brother" while on the CBS bio page, it states that she is an only child. Biologically, Sara is an only child. However, she was raised in foster care and therefore had foster siblings.
  • Leslie Grossman made her a special guest as Taylor Reed in this episode, but she is from Popular and What I Like About You.
