Trying to give the benefit of the doubt. Probably a useless exercise but...

Hey everyone. This episode's NCIS Round Table is up. http://www.tvfanatic.com/2015/...

The tragic thing about Choo Choo's death is that we just barely got a glimpse of who he really was before he kicked the bucket. Most telling was what he told the girl - about how he would have viewed someone like him, back before the IED got him. That tells me that he was likely an intelligent man with all of his faculties, and that the explosion was what messed him up. I'm not entirely sure he was as low in IQ as his companions treated him - it's just that he had to speak much slower in order to get his point across. I have to marvel at Duke Davis Roberts, who played the character so very well.

I think we saw the Tony DiNardo persona back in Season 5. But we've never seen the Leland Spears deal.

You're the MVP, ebau! : )

That's a great review Christine - and I agree with you 100%. What an excellent way to end the series! You know, for a moment I cringed at the thought the writers were going to end it with a twist involving the killer. Felt grateful when it ended on such a high happy scene with Lisbon and Jane sitting there watching as their friends danced the night away. What a great show this was!

As much as I've disagreed with TullaT in the past (and that's been a lot), she's right on this one. Many people are bothered/shocked/disappointed at what was, effectively, an execution. Fornell pulled the trigger but Gibbs set it up. What's more, I think Vance had an inkling about what went on, hence his question to Gibbs about "is there anything else I should know?" He wouldn't know to ask that if he was clueless. And that smile at Gibbs when he maintained innocence was a hint to his seemingly unknowing culpability. He has plausible deniability.

Well thank you for saying that, Lisa! : )

That's what I was curious about too.
