Loved the episode, especially Gibbs' standoff with the Afghan locals. It may not necessarily be realistic, but it shows the awesomeness that is Gibbs!
Liked the return of Susan Grady, but I kept looking for hints of her earlier insecurity. And she must have been channeling Jenny Shepherd in that interrogation room!

I get the feeling that the writers regret killing off Mike Franks, since they keep on coming up with excuses to put him in episodes even though he's dead. I definitely would, since he's an excellent character. Oddly enough, this episode makes me respect Franks just a little less, since if he was doing things like this, why did he allow himself to die fighting when his death could have easily been avoided? I wonder just how many Afghan girls he would have saved if he hadn't, even given the few months he had left?

Great episode as always though.

Loved the episode. The young girl Gibbs helped wasn't Leyla. Leyla came because her fiance, Mikee Franks' son, died. Liked the insecure Susan Grady had gotten more confident and I could totally see her as an field agent.Well done!

@Mikey yes, she was in two other episodes as a lie detector specialist who was crazy about McGee and she was very annoying and very socially awkward.

There were a couple of issues with the episode. The writers were just trying too hard by having Gibbs stand his ground in Afganastan. I think we all know that the local men wouldn't have slung their guns over the shoulder to engage Gibbs in hand to hand. They would've just shot him. So I didn't find that segment believable. It took me out of the story. Also they should've had Grady keep some of her nerosis. It would have been more exciting to see her trying to overcome that part of herself in order to become a good field agent. My favorite quote was from McGee. 'Not if I have a heart attack first'. That made me lol

loved the episode except for Susan Grady. Her character in the past has been so whiny and unsure, so making her become a field agent just did not work for me.
