I think you guys summed it up perfectly. But, my favorite scene/quote was when Fornell punched Gibbs, and Gibbs said: "Is that all you've got, Alice?" then sent him flying out through the door. I loved this episode, and it couldn't have ended any other way. With Mishnev dead, it's done. No more rise of the beast later. Well done.
I was impressed with episode 12/14. I knew there was a reason we all liked Tony so much and we got a small glimpse of that in this episode. Maybe praise embarrasses him, and Gibbs realized that early on. Hence, the Gibbs slaps rather than a kind word. Even Tony proved that when he hadn't been smacked in a while. He was concerned. I do think the writers deserve kudos for the last few episodes. They've done an excellent job developing the characters and moving the story forward. And the actors carried through beautifully. I'm anxious to see how Tony and Zoey's relationship is handled, and what Gibbs has up his sleeve for Sergi--and how he uses Jake (who is adorable) and the team (and maybe even Fornell) to bring the monster down.
I really liked this episode. I was a little surprised by the who-done-it, and it's not easy to fool me. And I loved the end when Abe was schooled by the Asian boy about the horse.
What happened to the writers on this show? This episode should have been only about Diane, Gibbs, and Fornell. I remember when something as big as losing an cast member was something to take slowly and heart wrenching, as with Jenny's death, and Kate's. Instead, you bring in Gibbs' other ex-wife (which is something we've all been looking forward to, but the timing was way off), then we moved on to a brief couple of scenes about Tony and Zoey. What happened to the days when we were IN the relationships with Gibbs and his current gal, or Tony and his newest lady? And what's with Bishop? Why are they still trying to put her in the forefront? I like Emily Wickersham. She's a great little actress. But no matter how hard the powers-that-be want it, she just does not fit this role. Give her up, and hire back the old writers.

I loved the scene where Gibbs and Rebecca woke up on his couch. It was funny, but I was surprised when Gibbs didn't throw some remarks back at Diane and McGee. Both were giving him and Rebecca a hard time, even though they were caught in the same situation. I loved this episode but was totally blown away when Diane was killed. I didn't see that coming. And, of course, I'm dying to know more about Tony and Keats. Were they lovers before? Kinda sounds that way. It looks like they might make an interesting couple. I can't wait to see what happens next. I haven't had this feeling about NCIS in awhile (on the edge of my seat, waiting for the next episode). Good job to all who were involved in creating this one.
I was glad to see Tony back in the saddle. I thought Jake was adorable. I'd like to see more of him. When Ellie's not being an airhead, she's not bad, either. Her and Tony did a good job of taking down the bad guy. And I agree with the others; I love seeing Gibbs smile.
I really enjoyed this episode. And I loved seeing Linda Pride turn up. She's such a great actress, and the feelings she expressed for the mother was so believable. I loved all the wild theories when they first found the body, and, of course, Lorretta's inevitable, sensible conclusion. The Jekyll and Hyde scenario was great. I would have liked to see a little more of the city, and I would have loved seeing the cast in costume. But all in all this was a very good episode. Good job, all.
I really loved this episode. I felt sorry for Gibbs. He loves children, and he was taken in almost until the end, just like us. I thought Zoe was awesome. Just the right amount of cuteness, toughness and gentleness. It was easy to see she had a 'thing' for Tony and probably vise-versa, although Tony would never admit it, not even to himself, just like with Ziva. I'd love to learn the backstory on this. Did Tony leave because he was getting too emotionally involved with Zoe? Because he was offered a better job and didn't want to say goodbye? I'd like to find out. Abby was great when she confronted our resident playboy. And the whole costume thing with Bishop and McGee was fun. I'd like to see every episode leaving me feel this way. Good job everyone.
I really liked this episode. It was predictable, but a lot of fun, especially with Tim and Abby, and her calling him "McGibbs". Then there was rule #70. And the bomb....
I really liked this episode. Tony was Tony, flirty, brave, fun. And we cleared up his relationship with Pendergast early on--fun, but not for him. Gibbs was untrusting as always, but playing the docile hostage for a short while was kinda fun to watch, and of course, I loved the turn when he took his captor down. And Borin was herself as always, used to being in control, and it was hard for her to let Tony handle anything to do with the negotiations (a female Gibbs). But the highlight of the episode was Tim. Or as Abby called him 'McGibbs'. And rule 70. Then there was the bomb...and Tony needing a heads-up because he didn't bring a diaper. Even Bishop is starting to grow on me. She worked so hard to pass the test, then learned everyone failed it but Gibbs. I felt sorry for her. All in all, I enjoyed the episode very much.
