I liked that the case of the week wasn't a brutal murder (although someone did die) and that everyone pulled together. However, I'd be curious to know why "Septic Santa" didn't land in the hospital.
I guess the show was losing it's younger demographic so enter a former teen heartthrob who aged out of Nick?
Now y'all KNOW what question I'm gonna ask.....
GOOD ON JOAN for calling BS to Sherlock's arrogance. I wanted to throttle him with his "I re-reviewed every action...", and "I knew it was the right thing..." Of course YOU did--YOURS is the only opinion that matters, right? GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.......
And yes, I share the reviewer's concern that Bell may be leaving, or be seen less.
For me, it was just "meh." I think the alternate reality of Howard's dead mother would have been funnier if Howard was dressed in drag (a la Norman Bates). And Stuart "insinuating" himself into others' alternate realities was kinda sad....though the epilogue (with him as Penny's boyfriend) made me laugh.
OK, I"ll say it. Hetty's use of a telepresence device was just plain CREEPY!!!!!!
Oh come on...it's not like she's doing anything dangerous, at least not since the "Kill House" episode. Why not put her "out there" more? And BTW, I agree with the reviewer--Eric needs to put on his big boy pants and just ASK already!!!!!!
Like it or not, life isn't static. People grow, change, and move on, and that's what Cote did. Be mad or annoyed with Cote, not with the new actress because she's NOT Cote.
That being said, you're also peeved that the new character isn't "blending in"--it's been TWO episodes!!!! Did you all learn a new job in two days? Did it also not occur to you that maybe, just maybe, she's SUPPOSED to be just a bit off-center? Gibbs saw something in her that made him want to hire her--perhaps it's new perspectives that challenge his own.
Bishop may have replaced Ziva, but she's not supposed to be a duplicate. Let's lose the "plug-and-play" attitude huh?

Not sure where you're going with this, but let's not discount the possibility that the new character isn't SUPPOSED to fit in--at least not completely. We've already seen that she works differently, and old habits are heard to break. Maybe Gibbs hired her BECAUSE he wanted someone to challenge his sensibilities just a little.
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.
