I enjoyed the episode; probably because it played out pretty much as I expected; although I didn't predict Iona's killer. I'll get my first nitpick out of the way: Isn't 'Dr. Heather Kessler, PhD' redundant? I expected the 'B' case to be the more poignant one, and it was. I disagree, though that it could have taken up the whole hour. It was bordering on melodramatic as it was; to extend it would have pushed it over the top, IMO. The only real evidence was in the cyber world, so the rest would have been filler. Great to see Archie, though! And I was pleasantly surprised with Eckie. Doc and Nick worked well together; and I won't get into to the implausibility of them being in the dead girl's neighborhood in the 'nick' of time. It's CSI, after all. My next nitpick was Nick and the father strolling into the nursery with street clothes and no gowns or other cautionary techniques. It was a nice scene, though. I actually enjoyed the 'A' case. The house full of human pets really creeped me out, as it seemed to do with Sara. Loved her expressions. I thought the LH/Sara scenes were interesting, and of course subject to interpretation; but I, and apparently Hodges :lol:, thought Sara 'dominated'. Sara maintained her poise, but Heather seemed uncomfortable with Sara. I'm not sure what that means, but clearly she focused on Ray and tried to ignore Sara. Maybe she can't 'read' women as well as she can 'read' men. IDK. Or maybe it's just Sara she can't read. Sara, on the other hand, focused on the case at hand and tried to keep it professional; which to me further shows her security in her marriage, and herself. I did like her and Hodges scenes, and I thought she and Ray worked well together. I won't get into the end scene. We all know why it was there. Heather is being used as a 'tool' to advance storylines; but that is what most recurring guest stars are for. She had some nice storylines for herself in the past, but that's exactly why I commented before that her character has stayed around too long to remain all that intriguing. She had a nice ending to her character in TGTBATD and they should have left it at that. Now, unless she is the subject of a case (victim or suspect, and she's already been there, done that) I don't see another use for her character. If she returns, it will probably be to further stir things up with Sara and Grissom or to be used as a consultant. Tptb like her, and she has lots of fans, so I think that's why they made her a psychologist, to consult on these types of weird sex cases. That said, I wouldn't mind seeing Heather and Sara and Catherine work a case. A B+ from me for this episode. NIce to see lots of Sara, and I liked the flow of the episode. I thought it was well written and edited.
