In other words, Sara, an independent and intelligent woman, was reduced to being a door mat! It's like TPTB made her into some sort of masochist. Grissom, who's always by the book, finally giving in to Sara's advances, was just too out of character. Another reason why I dislike GSR is the fact that Grissom and Sara are cut from the same cloth. They're too alike to be really good for each other. Why put two socially inept people together? Where's the fun in that? Besides, I never saw any real chemistry between the two. It just seemed too orchestrated and too forced for my liking. Bottom line, Grissom and Sara never sparked romantically. Heeeeee, I'm not a fan of Mac/Stella (I'm an Flack/Stella shipper as you know ) but I do agree with you here. I wouldn't want to see my ship going canon either (like it ever will :lol since TPTB would probably just mess it up. A little flirting now and then doesn't hurt. So yeah, why mess with a really good thing?
