Weak show I thought overall. Next week also does not look that good either with it's focus on Ducky and Jimmy. Man thing I was surprised about was that Abby did not show up for half a hour and then had only a couple minutes of time. This had to be the lightest Abby ep every I think.
Anyone who has watched all 225 episodes knows that Tony has not always been (and sorry because I love DiNozzo, particularly the old DiNozzo) something of a bumbling buffoon. Up until relatively recently Tony was a decidedly more mature and smart character, deserving of his own team (Season 4 "Singled Out"). I'm not saying he wasn't funny - he was still cracking jokes and quoting movie references even when all but dying from the plague, but he was smart and witty, not silly and irritating. Why was he acting like such an idiot when he first met Vance's children? In season 9 "Engaged part 2" he demonstrates a 'fear' of young children and babies, but he's never had a problem with older kids, in fact going out of his way to show Ziva how good he is with children, not that they necessarily liked him. (Season 3 "Honor Code" /Season 5 "Lost & Found") And whilst I'm having a general moan, can someone do something about Tony, and indeed McGee's wardrobe? What's happened to all the cool
That Pizza box Jaw like thing was so cool I want to learn how to make it, People change and grow its a part of life the writers and fans need to accpted that tonight was okay because it was Vance kids and you should always make kids laugh.
As for the season so far it has had it up and down mostly down at the start of the season seem like the writer get better towards the end of the seasons
I love the funny Tony and would hate to take that away. We've seen several eps of serious Tony and sometimes it just doesn't feel right. After ten years the characters and actors begin to mesh. Have you ever seen Weatherly on talk shows. Good lord he is so funny and off the wall. The writers will never change Tony to a serious egghead and shouldn't.
Emotional transference is a real thing though. (Looked it up) Definition: A phenomenon characterized by unconscious redirection of feelings from one person to another. Makes sense to me.
Well, other than Tony cheering up the kids (very creative), I thought it was a total yawner. BORING. The whole murder thing was just stupid.
There actually was a moment where we are shown Tony's more protective side regarding Ziva: right after she and Vance finish their little chat, Tony asks her if things are all right. When she confirms "as all right as it can be" and turns away, the camera moves to serious!Tony watching her for a moment, then to Ziva glancing back and smiling slightly at his concern, then back to serious!Tony for another beat. Plus the callback to Tony's previous encounter with his "worst fear" was entertaining (last season, he got dragged into a daycare by some chaplain), and this episode makes it fairly obvious that he only overcomes that fear because of Ziva's presence. In all, a well-executed little Tiva anvil in a Vance-centric episode. I'm pretty impressed at how the writers managed to shoehorn that in.
That said, Rocky Carroll blew this one out of the park with his performance in every scene of this episode. The show's actually done a better job of developing Vance's backstory than Ducky's, Ab
Just because Tony is maturing, doesn't mean he should give up the lighthearted aspects of his character. Tony uses levity as a buffer.
So far I love this season.
I MISSED THE EPISODE AS TO HOW SHE DIED,MY TV WAS MESSED UP DUE TO STORMS WE HAD.I'M TRYING TO CATCH UP,BUT NO OTHER SHOW HAS MENTIONED HOW SHE PASSED.
