While I agree with the fact that this review may have been too lenient, I think that Abby's dillema was evocative enough. We humans are impressionable at a young age and there's no denying that Abby has questioned the good throughout the series. Now I should get this out of the way. Abby is one of my favorites and yet one of the episodes that centered around her (Cracked) is one of my worse episodes of the series. It had Abby obsessing over a woman in which we are told is because she sees in that woman a kindred spirit. Yet no info is given into why that is, unlike this episode where we are given proper flashback and enough about Abby's character to make it a little more believable.

I'm sorry for those who didn't get this episode-you had to have a heart of cloth to not realize Abby needed to know what she did mattered! And the love her "family" showed bit by bit got to her, with Gibbs giving the final reminder that what she did lasted! Yes there was a sad and tragic case to solve, greed can drive anyone to anything! But life is more then crimes to solve and this is what NCIS does best-reflect life! If you think this was an awful show-then go watch dreck like the "Bachelor"!

I dunno; I think Mr. Wolfe is somewhat hyperbolic in his description of this episode. Instead of "knocking it out of the ball park," this episode didn't even rate the abbreviated buzz generated by a bunt down the third baseline. The Abby/Luca back story was sweet; however, once again, we see Abby-the-adult stressing and sniveling over something that really wasn't that evocative.

Also there is the thing with Harper Dearing, where the bad temporarily beat the good, so it's not like Abby's dillema wasn't fresh in her mind.

This is to your second response. I don't think so. It's a well known fact that unrelated things can trigger bad memories. For example, if someone lost their mom and they see a mom and her child doing something that he/she used to do alot with their own mom. That would bring back bad memories, but that doesn't mean the child is related to the mother and child he/she sees one day. Or what? Just because it's television it has to be obvious.

I'd see where you were comming from if you got specific about what didn't make sense. I could say the sky is blue doesn't make sense, but that isn't really a sound arguement.

I agree it would been better if the victim was conntecd to Abby

Sorry, but I completely disagree with this review. It was an absolutely awful episode. None of it made any sense. If the writers can't come up with anything better for Abby's episodes, they should just quit trying (remember "Cracked"?)
The only decent part tonight was little Abby and Luca.
