Stephie, you have it right. I don't wish for Vance to die - I'd just like to see a shakeup in the team dynamic. Having Gibbs as director would be great, as it would give Tony a chance to take over as team leader - which I think is long overdue. I think Gibbs would step up to the occasion if he were given the director role. It would take some getting used to, however. It might be that he's already on his way, what with his "friendship" with Jake.

As to your last point: it's true they wouldn't give a crap. However in the real world, they'd hand that over to the local authorities for prosecution. A few people think Ducky is on the way out. As we all know in this one-hour shows, nothing is ever done by accident. If the camera is showing something as mundane as someone walking to his car, it's for a reason: he's about to be mugged, or his car is going to blow up. There's a reason they showed Ducky seeming so pensive as to provoke Palmer to check in with him about it. We didn't actually get an answer, did we? I hate to say it, but I think I'm changing my answer to Ducky. Damn it.

Interesting thought about Malloy. There's a reason he and Gibbs are friends (if indeed that's the case, and isn't just a smoke-screen to fool Bishop and the gang while they collaborate on something secret). That fresh-faced innocent look might be hiding a lot of stuff.

Thanks for your thoughts! I love Ducky too - my hope is that he's not the one to go. We won't know the answer though until a week from Tuesday - which makes this all the more frustrating. : ) (Next week is the penultimate episode, and the following week is the finale)

Hi everyone. Our Round Table is now up. One of the questions we've weighed in on is: who's going to buy the farm? Come on over and tell us your thoughts as well: http://www.tvfanatic.com/2015/...

I agree with you right down the line. Dorney is completely confident - and that's what Palmer needs to be as well. It's time to put the clown face away.

Me too. I really like her and wished they could have used her more in this episode. I'm going to miss Justified too - although I kind of hated the ending, which seemed to fizzle out. Guess maybe they're gearing up for a Justified movie, which is why they left everyone alive.

In real life I've seen normally logical and mature people (men and women both) become unglued by an event. And I don't mean merely petulant as Bishop was - I mean off the wall bizarre. Take the death of a loved one for example - it's amazing what can happen to one's psyche under the right conditions. In this case it wasn't Bishop *just* being unreasonable; she was still dealing with the fact that she had to kill someone. In that sense the writing was, I believe, quite realistic. Something I meant to mention in my review but forgot: the case she was dealing with involved a young Navy Ensign. It occurred to me that Bishop was suddenly seeing herself in that young woman's place, and was projecting as a result. Everything about her reaction, while not reasonable under normal circumstances, seemed realistic to me.

I like the fact that they aren't living a fairytale marriage.

Your English is quite good. And you might be right, as well. Your theory is just as plausible as any number of other ones regarding who's going to die. It's fun to speculate.
