Sara Sidles Point of View
When I saw that there were no license plates, I felt that the chances of us finding Nick were slim to none, so I figured I had to do something, and looking for evidence outside seemed like the only thing I could do. When I walked out of the room I heard Grissom ask Catherine if she was okay, which was about the stupidest question I have ever heard him ask. When I got outside I took out my flashlight, got on my hands and knees and started looking for anything I could find. When I was looking for tire tracks I saw Catherine get into her car and drive away. I promised myself that I wouldn't let it show if the case got to me, the last thing I needed was to be kicked off this case. A few minutes later I found a fingernail on the blacktop, it could have been anyone's, but it was worth collecting since it was all we had. After about five more minutes of looking around I went back inside to tell Grissom what I found and get it to Greg in the lab. I knocked on the door to Grissom's office and when he told me to come in I showed him what I had found. He agreed that it could have been anyone's but told me to get it to Greg anyway. I didn't want to make him angry or anything, but I wanted to know if I was right about Catherine being removed from the case.
"So, is Catherine off the case?" I asked him before I left.
"Yes." It was a simple reply, but that's all any of us ever expect from him. After he answered my question I headed off to the lab.
