The idea that such a huge love story could exist in and out of the darkness of CSI is amazing to Jorja. She describes it as the most amazing thing she gets to play and her favourite part of the whole show.
The original script of Gum Drops had the team staying in a motel, with Greg and Grissom sharing a room. Because of Greg’s snoring, Grissom get’s up and asks Sara if he can stay with her. They lay side by side, in separate beds, in the dark and talk about life, death, and love. The next morning, Greg walks in on Sara showering in his and Grissom’s room. Unfortunately, Billy wasn’t able to be in the episode due to family reasons so all of this was cut.
