I know that exists with cats (the "chimera"/two sets of DNA thing). I'm not sure it exists with people. But it's certainly possible. Same theory and all.

as for the realism of this ep. From what I have heard is that it does happen. Interesting twist.

I liked it tonight.

When they started talking about Chimera, all I thought about was "Mission Impossible 2". Sad, but true.

My thought exactly!

"I'm sorry and you're sorry."

A side note, looks like Greg has something up his sleeve considering the reaction he had to Gil's 'groom your replacement' line...

Now that's a cliff hanger!

I was thinking the same thing. I'll admit it.

It does exist in people though it's exteremly rare. It happens like they explained, fusion of the embryos, and it can also happen if fraternal twins share a placenta and stem cells move between the two. My biology degree is useful sometimes

As far as the episode, underwhelming finale to a underwhelming season.

It was certainly a more interesting case than some of the recent ones, but I was hoping for a more important ending.

The doctor admitted to both of the rape/murders. Sara was walking with Nick on the strip, obviously in a "happy" mood. She congratulated Nick on his "almost-promotion". Then it shifts to the police station and a cop is telling Grissom that Sara had been picked up for DUI, but under the limit. Grissom tells Sara he'll take her home.

Best episode of the season last night, IMO. Though I too wish that the ending had more of an impact.

The doctor also said there were more, but they would get to that later.

I still can't believe this many people saw MI 2!?!


Anyway...as far as the ending goes, I can't keep all the alchoholic characters straight (Sipowitz on NYPD. Abby on ER etc.) is Sarah not supposed to be drinking? What was the big deal with her being barely one point over (the new lowered) legal limit?

Brass took her to task on her drinking earlier this season I think it was. He said he could recognise the signs, as a recovering alcoholic himself.

Oh yeah, that epsiode was "The One With The Cough Drops".








*** crickets ***

Actually it was the Feb 19th epsiode "Early Rollout" (link).

The whole team must investigate a crime where a husband and his porn star wife were murdered execution style. Things get personal for Catherine when Grissom talks to her about her evaluation. Brass believes that Sara may have some type of problem.

I'm pretty sure she was over the limit but it had just been lowered from .1 to .08 so they gave her a break

Sarah blew a 0.09%, which was just over the .08% level that just went into place, thus the break.

Would never happen.

Professional organizations, especially Law Enforcement, NAIL DUIs to the wall. It's one thing to get caught speeding, but engaging in an activity that could get some body killed?

You're over. Your professional progress is finished .

Prediction: Next season, Sarah gets in a car wreck after drinking and both Gil and Brass end up resigning.

Um no. It doesn't work quite like that. Many officers keep their jobs if they get a DUI. Usually it requires some form of suspension or demotion. I've seen it many times.

I wish I could forget I had.

Enjoyable episode.
I hope the whole Alcoholic thing with Sarah isnt going to be part of the plot next year.
