Loved Gibbs and Ryan together. He needs someone that is as complicated as he is. Hope she is a regular. He needs some looonnnggg awaited romance. Go JLC. I guess I'll have to live vicariously through you.

I don't think that the fear of children episode was Tony centric. That's the one where Gibbs and Ziva went to Afghanistan to rescue those girls. I'd say that one was Gibbs and Ziva centric with Tony (as usual) cast as comic relief while the usual two were the heros and got all the action. While the episode with Tony's father and the one with Wendy had a lot of Tony, they were also quite team centric. The only really exclusively Tony centric episode was Nature of the Beast. But I'm with you in wanting the team back. I don't want to learn anymore about Ziva's tragic past or Gibbs for that matter. They've been done to death.

Well, so far we've had 4 episodes about Tony (if you count his fear of children one). We know there's another one coming up for number 5. If you figure 24 episodes or so, that's almost 1/4 of the season on 1 character. Why not just let him be a competent part of the team like he used to be instead of weighing him and and us down with all his emotional baggage. He comes out looking ridiculous. Oh, and that goes for Ziva episodes too. I want the team back!

@jerry: tony is SFA....so when gibbs is NOT around, he IS the BOSS...and as SFA he should shown the SAME respect that is given to gibbs.

as for TIVA: why would anyone who is a fan of tony, want him with someone who didn't see anything WRONG with shoving her injured partner down and pulling a loaded gun and sticking it into his chest...and claiming she wouldn't mind KILLING him?....she has NEVER respected him as an agent or her SFA....and i HATED jeanne....she was to damn demanding and such.

Why did they get new writers??????? This show is a mess. I will continue to watch every episode, but at the end of each show I feel cheated, like something was really left out. Do I like JLC - NO. Do I want to see more McGee - YES. Do I want to see more of Abby and McGee together working in her lab - YES, YES>

If the old writers aren't dead, can we get them back??????????????//

i don't mind tony centric shows....but, i HATE them writing him as a fool and the butt of everyone's joke...tony would NOT still be ON gibbs' team, if he couldn't do the job...and i WISH tptb would make a point of having him be shown the RESPECT he's due....for putting up with the STUPID headslapps and the put downs even from gibbs....and STOP with the DAMN tiva stuff.

and i DON'T want mcgee being shown to have any more of a swelled head, then he's already been shown....he acts as if he's BETTER then tony, because he went to JOHN HOPKINS and MIT....tony was a COP/ Det. before becoming an agent.....he KNOWS what he's doing...and i LOVE having them having to do thing the OLD FASHIONED way.

I'm with you Mel. After seeing Tony cast as the team's weak link and butt of the joke from about season 6 on, I'm glad Tony is finally getting a little less demeaning attention. Boonies, obviously doesn't enjoy the character much, which is his/her right. But this should give him/her a little empathy for those of us who are tired of the Ziva show, as we have had nothing but, for the last several seasons. Perky gossip Ziva really got on my nerves last night. Talk about over done.

Mel, I like Tony too. That's why I'd rather they quit centering all these episodes around him. He just comes out looking like a doofus.

Actually, I'd rather see every episode be TEAM centered so they'd ALL get a chance to shine and have interesting cases. I don't really care about Tony's poor little rich boy childhood OR Ziva's daddy issues.

Sorry boonies,but many of us like Tony, and after several Tony-lite seasons, I'm ecstatic he's finally getting a little face time.
Thought the ep was slow and ,like every Gibbs-centric ep, had too little team, but it was nonetheless entertaining. Liked the little moment between Tony and Ziva at the end, which you could view as a Tiva moment or just a nice honest moment between two friends. Thought Gibbs and Sam had a nice dynamic, but didn't really like her smug, know-it-all attitude towards the NCIS agents. It was okay, and had some nice moments, but like all the eps by these new writers, felt a bit off and unsatisfying.
