Who would you like to see get their final comeuppance? Who is it and just what would you do with them?
Naturally, for this one, I’m going to say Grissom, honestly, the man couldn’t patch his own life together to save it. We’re public servants p-u-b-l-i-c s-e-r-v-a-n-t-s, not “a couple of science geeks”. I mean for fucks sake, what the hell was he thinking. We do our job for the Sheriff, the City of Las Vegas and for the government, we don’t do it for our own personal pleasure or enjoyment and by no means do we get personally involved. That’s his downfall though, that man cares too much and that’s what makes his team weaker because he puts an influence over the people he is Supervisor of. There are many prime examples of the Nightshift team’s “caring” nature, there’s Stokes and the stripper, Grissom and Sidle, Warrick and Catherine. Sidle alone gets herself way too wrapped up with the victims to fill out the personal involvement area for all of them twice over. We’re meant to solve the cases we are given as efficiently as we can and then move on afterwards, not sleep with them or go visit them in the hospital.
His reputation as an entomologist elevates the entire crime lab, which elevates my stature, by association and that is by far all I have to be grateful to him for. If he looks good, I look good, even if I do have the superior advantage over him of being more dedicated and hard working. I don’t really think it’s necessary to choose a punishment for a man such as Grissom, if you watch him carefully, he’ll screw up on occasion or won’t be able to solve a case and he gets his just desserts for those screw ups. It’s entertaining to see the Sheriff after him, because it makes me look all the better for the possible promotion of Assistant Director of the Crime Lab and what’s even better is that Grissom does it over and over again. The man just never learns a good enough lesson from his mistakes so he revisits them again but in a different form. I am a suit, tie and on occasion vest man, he is a, lets leave out top buttons undone and wear jeans guy, so you see the difference. I succeed because I am the better man of the pair, he succeeds because he can, but he does so while tripping over his own two feet in the process which is what gives me the better advantage over the whole situation.
