I love NCIS: NOLA. But the writers need to step up their game. Use the plantations, swamps, awesome NO sites, etc. to set unique stories. Work outside the box. Give us something fun. Buy the way, the new girl is a little too cocky and arrogant for my taste.
I really like Brody's new hairdo. I hope she lets it grow longer. This episode was good, but a little predictable. I was taken off guard when Pride shot LaSalle. Didn't see that coming. All in all, a good show. Can't wait to see the next one.
I stopped watching Ghost Whisperer and Graceland because, even though they started out as great shows, doing a good job, uplifting (like NCIS) etc. But they moved to the 'dark side', (G) drugs, treachery, murder by the team, GW) underground caves filled with evil spirits, shadows, just bad stuff in general. I'm seeing a little slip in that direction on NCIS, with terrorists drawing in children, villains who continue on and on after one or more of the team. Gibbs' torture going deeper and deeper. Before this new switch, each episode stood on it's own, the villain got his due, and by the end of the show you were left with a satisfied feeling. That's not been happening so much lately. Please don't let the 'dark side' get NCIS. Other than that, I still love the show.
I know what you guys are talking about when you mention the last two years. I think the real problem is we never got total satisfaction. Whatever happened to one episode, one problem...then solved? As for the characters personal lives, I don't mind a little spice. And I disagree about Gibbs. He is not beyond help. It may be the romantic in me, but I believe the right woman (who can push through his demons) can make him whole again. The family-like interaction between these characters is what makes this show work so well. Oh, and just off the subject a little. I think NCIS LA really picked up when you brought Eric Christian Olsen on scene. The whole cast came together. Just like NCIS. Now try it with NCIS New Orleans. :)
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.
