NCIS Review: "Code of Conduct"

by at . Comments

What is perhaps most exceptional about NCIS is that it can consistently feature such sharp dialogue, fast-paced action and intricate scripts in episodes that could be pure filler.

Last week, Ziva's relationships with her family were explored, as was the back story of the plot that brought her to Africa last season. This week? She's just Agent David.

Agent David who gets teased relentlessly by smart-ass Tony, of course. Surprising for characters on a procedural crime drama, the Tony-Diva dynamic is a treat to watch.

As for last night's case, it was vintage NCIS. Dead marine, multiple suspects, Gibbs putting all the pieces together just as the team was about to arrest the wrong person.

A three-tour vet turned up dead on Halloween and the agents were convinced that his practical joking ways got the best of him. Except Tony, who thought his wife did it.

For a time, it looked like both theories would be proven right, but in a surprise twist, the team's prime suspect was being set up by someone they almost overlooked.

For all the details, check out our episode recap of "Code of Conduct."

Palmer: Yeah, it's a really cool way to go! [silence] Cool, as in the temperature. Liquid nitrogen. Forget it. | permalink
