I was also using my old reviews as a guideline, which is where I relearned that in between the finale and the premiere, Jorja Fox's contract was all up in the air, and coming off the finale we didn't actually know if she was going to survive. By premiere time other people may have, but I was 100% in the dark all the way until the happy ending. I don't know if I have ever felt quite that much stress watching TV in real time since.
Anyhoo. I also briefly poked my head in at the car scene of 8x02 -- so cute! so light! -- and then off to bask in the super cute proposal I've not watched in an age, before I ragestroked out at how fast they went from that to the muddled mess their subsequently mostly off-screen relationship became, so I went back to finish the end of 8x02. Had completely forgotten this is where I first heard "Running Up That Hill" (Placebo version). Officially stamped down as Sara's Theme now.
Also right about here is where I remember that 2007 was prime time for printing stories off for my fic binder, and I collected a crapload of Grissom/Sara fic that was written the summer before season 8 and/or as post-eps immediately after it started, so...toodles.
