Oh don't EVEN compare Gibbs and his wife with Tony and Ziva. As we've seen in flashbacks, Gibbs met his wife as a young marine, not as an agent pushing 40. Gibbs had a child with Shannon--last I looked, Tony and Ziva weren't parents. As for Tony's willingness to change, well, kudos to him, but what about what Ziva wanted? Doesn't that matter?

Ratings went up...because of Ziva? I repeat....how does that happen? How are people who were not watching suddenly encouraged en masse to tune in because someone mentioned her by name in a scene that lasted all of 5 minutes (or less)?

" The ratings went up with just the mention of Ziva." How do ratings go up with the sudden and short-lived mention of someone's name? How are people who are not watching suddenly being told to tune in because Ziva's name is being spoken?

BRAVO Douglas!!!!!! JUST when I thought we were past all this female relational aggression toward Bishop / Wickersham, it rears its ugly irremovable head(s) like some Internet Hydra. What's REALLY interesting is that despite the dislike for Bishop / Wickersham, seemingly as dePablo's successor, these SAME folks aren't saying much about the random women the writers keep throwing Tony's way. Any female actor willing to take on the role of DiNozzo's new girlfriend (assuming they even cast one) better have titanium skin--but at least it would take some of the heat off Bishop / Wickersham. And BTW, notice that I referred to Wickersham as dePablo's successor...not her REPLACEMENT. The latter is what many of you seem to want, whether or not you consciously realize it, and the writers probably don't see it that way.

You're right...but Sheldon would never destroy an allegedly $100M painting so he could see both sides to confirm it's a fake..and then call it "efficient."

As much as I enjoyed this episode, I found myself doing a lot....I mean A LOT...of eye-rolling during its course. The writers trotted out just about every single stereotype they could dream up--sleazy Tijuana setting, thieving cholos (but with the twist of being DEA agents), Mexican women anxious be married off to anyone with male genitalia and American citizenship, an overweight asthmatic accountant named MILTON... I'm neither Mexican nor an accountant, but I was offended as a human of average intelligence--this felt like someone's revenge for a Mexican vacation gone horribly awry.

This was a particularly droll episode...but in a good way. Instead of rolling my eyes, I just chuckled instead. And I LOVED me some Hetty Lange, although her appearance had little to do with her role at OSP / NCIS. Walter is cut from the same mold as Sheldon from "The Big Bang Theory"--except comparatively speaking, Sheldon has a sense of humor. I think Paige is gonna have to become a little more like Mary Cooper (Sheldon's mother) if she's gonna mold Walter into something that won't annoy the general public.

...and maybe that's the problem. It's like CBS has some requirement that an awkward romance be written into the show between someone of average intelligence with social graces and an emotionally stunted genius. #TiredOldTrope..
