We don't know the exact agreement Sara had with Ecklie. Perhaps she isn't a 'full time' employee or something; a consultant who is allowed to carry a gun. I don't know. I've never been a Sara fan. I don't hate her, I just don't like her as much as the other characters. I have, however, enjoyed her presence so far this season. Mentioning her marriage doesn't bother me either. As much as I dislike GSR, the way they're doing it now is fine by me. It feels like Grissom is still around. And I don't see it as rubbing it in our faces. One or two mentions of her husband is fine. Again, it's Grissom their talking about. No matter my feelings on Sara, Grissom is awesome. The current link we have with him is through his wife. She's letting us know what he's up to. I'll take it any way I can get it, including GSR.
