I missed the original airing because I took an extended Thanksgiving so I watched it via onDemand.
I wondered if Kensi was written out because DR was pregnant--thanks for confirming. That's going to leave me wondering what this "White Ghost" mission is--since DR won't be on the show, we may never actually find out until she returns.
For me, this was a so-so episode; the action scenes were great, but the whole ep was overshadowed by the DENSI thing, which I KNEW was a bad idea. Also, the fact that everyone else knew, but that DENSI didn't seem to know everyone else knew was just sad to me. Granger and Hetty clearly did what they had to do to make sure the team continues to perform well, but it makes me wonder whether the separation will affect Deeks' performance. Poor Deeks is having a rotten season--tortured physically, and now emotionally.

How could Penny not know those Vegas weddings are real? Doesn't she watch "Friends"? :-)
You mean WILSON, not Al.
IMO, out of those 3, only ONE is "normal."
I did not get this week's case at all. The criminal was some secondary character who wasn't developed at all--we learned nothing about motivation and we didn't see or hear her associate with anyone shady. However, I will give the writes kudos for the perp NOT to have been the dealership owner--while that could have been the obvious choice (a grudge against the Pakistani government perhaps), the fact that it wasn't just made it more of a twist.
As for Densi....oy. Why'd they go there? BOUNDARIES!!!!!! This is NOT going to go well.
For some reason, I was expecting a flaky, borderline ditzy character, similar to the ME who had the hots for Tim or that woman who administered polygraph tests. I was pleasantly surprised that this new character wasn't THAT over-the-top--she seems to be a happy medium between Abby and Ziva. However, I was kinda peeved that someone that prescient took too long to realize she was interfering in a stakeout and didn't get out of the way in time. Oh, and wearing an NSA badge in public when you can't tell you family what you do for a living wasn't smart either.
On a different note, did anyone catch on to Tony's line about Bishop "pulling a Palmer." THAT was hilarious!!!!
Y'know, I've noticed that about Penny too. She always seems to have a glass of wine in her hand.
I second the reviewer's comments about how the plot elements were woven together in a very interesting way. However, on more than one occasion, I found myself uttering "Take the broom out 'cha bum Sherlock!"
"...followed up by some creepy, yet hilarious ogling of Penny..."
I'll second that, but with the emphasis on "creepy"--Newhart deserves better than playing some dirty old man.
