I watch this show to see Hetty and Deeks, in that order. I don't pay much mind to the stories. So, half the fun was gone tonight.
I think Eric and Nell are becoming a couple. He has explained himself to her several times now, to make it clear that he was not out with another woman. And she made it clear to him that she slept over at Hetty's, not at another man's.
The thing I found myself considering during this episode was that finally, after twenty-odd years, Miguel Ferrer is beginning to grow on me. The only decent human I ever saw him play was on ER once, but they are finally putting some layers on his character, and adding a little humor. I like it.
Considering what tuna costs, I find it odd that they were smuggling ten dollar disks in fifty dollar fish. I thought that she was quite consistent from last time to this time. She has the temperament of a stepped-on rattlesnake, and she always has had, at least since she divorced Gibbs.
Does anyone know, or remember, why she keeps calling Tim Chuck and Chuckie?
I enjoyed this episode more than any in quite a while -- it made me laugh a lot. That's nice. The serious PTSD episodes were excellent, but not funny. I am more than ready to meet the last Mrs. Gibbs, though. It's about time.
I was really delighted to see these guys win, although I'd have been equally happy had it been James and Jaymes. Their goals to help their parents were admirable. I was hoping it would be no one who had taken part in stealing from James and Abba. I'll probably remember little of their tasks and obstacles, but it was nice to finally see a lady laced into a corset. I have always wondered about that....
I kept flinching at the horrendous obnoxious Sheldon, back to Season 2 manners. The most memorable thing about this episode for me is that Amy took Sheldon into the back seat of her car, lifted her skirt to show him her bikini wax job, and Sheldon looked at it, did not scream, did not leave, and just made a fairly reasonable comment about it. Who'd'a thunk it?
@ MKWolfe That rule is Gibbs's rule. It is NOT the rule of NCIS. Unlike other agencies, or police forces, NCIS has no rules against couples serving together. It was discussed and made quite clear on an early season DVD. If Tony and Ziva got together, or if McGee and Abby get together again, Gibbs might disapprove, but he would have no right and no grounds to force anyone to leave. It would also be seriously hypocritical of him, given his history with Jenny.
This is not to say I want Tony and Ziva to get together. I don't. It is just the rules.
He did tell Conrad's daughter, when she kissed him in the hospital. He just did not name names.
I do not understand why anyone bothers to read what Michael says. He is an idiot and a provocateur. Ignore him. Responding just feeds his fantasies.
One point no one has thus far mentioned, and which occurred to me last night watching the episode, was how brilliantly the young actor portrayed the soldier with PTSD. He really was wonderful. I don't know who he is, and have not seen him before, but I believed him, 100%. Superb.
@ osofine A further advantage to registering and filling out a profile is that you will be able to send and receive emails through this website when you wish to continue a personal discussion with only one person, about some series or episode, without making your comments public. Your "Inbox" notification for this web site is at the top right when you have signed on. It will also enable you to comment personally to the reviewers, rather than publicly, if you wish to do that for whatever reason.
@ osofine You can do what I do -- copy your original post, and post it. Then when the first part is posted, paste it to the "Leave a Comment" box and delete what has already been posted. Copy that again, and post it. If you still have some left over, which I sometimes do when an episode is worth discussing in depth, then paste it again, delete what has posted, and post again. I add the words "TWO" and "THREE", etc, to subsequent posts, in case another individual posts in between parts of my comments.
Another way to get your comment saved in its entirety, and accessible, is to register. Your name will then appear in hot link blue, with or without an icon like mine. Clicking on that will take you or anyone to a complete list of comments made by that individual. And that includes the part which their character count has truncated. I really hope you choose option 2. Your comments are fascinating.
