Well color me disappointed. The writing this season has been so good, I didn't think they would go with so obvious a choice as Dorney.

THANK YOU. I was trying to figure out what he meant by that. Couldn't recall a time when any of his team made the mistake of putting words in his mouth.

Wolfshades

Yes, I know that. I didn't say differently did I? He was partly responsible for the bombing, which we know because he smirked as he hinted to McGee about it.

Wolfshades

Oops, sorry. It went by so fast I didn't get a good look.

That was CIA Officer Joanna Teague, Dorneget's mother.

The bigger question here is: what's happening with Ryan Hardy? Ever since his last face to face with Joe, he seems to have accepted Joe's assessment that he's just like him. Which means Harding is now looking for excuses - any excuse will do - to kill people. We kind of knew that's where all this was heading. Kind of shocking seeing it come to pass.

I've been reading them too: looks more and more like I was wrong. Even after my interview with Emily Wickersham, I still was under the impression the death would happen in 24. Guess it's happening in two days from now.

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.
