So, I really wasn't surprised about Mary. We're two for two here with Ducky's love interests, aren't we? I'm sure you could weaponize him: just set him loose among the population, and whoever he manages to pick up will probably be a criminal.

Also, McCallum sucks horribly at pronouncing "paella". Seriously, two of your castmates got it perfectly. It's not hard.

I was kind of hoping that the writers would show some acknowledgment of continuity and have Tony be reminded about a certain somebody associated with Spain. Especially because this somebody is part of the season (or at least Fall Sweeps) story arc. Alas, this was not the case.

C+, for the episode. It just wasn't all that good.

I'm not sure what's going on, but the rhythm ,pacing,or SOMETHING is just off lately. The energy is just not there. The scenes are so dark and slowwww. Also, has this particular writer ever actually WATCHED the show?? Gibbs queasy about looking at a brain?! Tony interrogating the chief suspect instead of Gibbs?! MH seems to be taking a supporting role and that's NOT the dynamic that's succeeded all these years!
It seems they're so enamored of getting these big guest stars involved that they've lost sight of the successful formula...the fast moving, energetic dialogue with a bunch of talented character actors, and a case with some twists and turns.
The best part of last night's show was the promo at the end with ex #2 calling Gibbs "Mr. Woodchuck". I'm hopeful for next week.

I think it would do us all a treat if my man Don Bellisario would knock if off with these anti-romantic, anti-marriage elements and let his NCIS characters have some normal love lives. We see enough of this anti-romantic, anti-marriage nonsense in real life. Did you feel like the rug was pulled out from under you? I sure did. My name is Thomas Tarwater, and I thank you for reading this review.

I knew she was the killer why else would she be on the show

Not one of my favorites either. I thought it was obvious it was Mary - the fact that they had Ducky talk about the lack of photos of her father and there was something else I cannot remember, made me suspicious of her.

Love Palmer and yes, he needs to be in the opening credits!

I didn't like this episode. the story would have worked hadn't it been used before in a earlier episode (i think about 4 seasons back), when ducky was also dating a murdering b*tch. I hope they won't keep recycling storylines like this
