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.
Actually it wasn't Kate who shot the unsub. It was one of the policemen from the local area. That actually made the scene more realistic.
Yeah, I think that anyone's even had a whiff of the military knows the protocol around the salute. I'm guessing they put that in there to educate those who may have had no idea. Good catch! And I'm with you about Senior's Hail Mary - can't wait to see more about what brought that on.
At the start of last season, she proved her worth over a few episodes, when we began to understand her unique abilities to memorize all kinds of information and from that be able to pull disparate bits of information together to form a picture. The problem was that writers also showed that her abilities which served her well in her previous assignment didn't automatically make her a great agent with her new team (ref. her need to pay attention to teamwork, weapons training, etc.). So the bulk of the rest of last year and this season has been spent with her functioning in uncomplaining probie mode. Her worth is there, it's just bubbling quietly at the moment. I have no doubt the writers will let her spread her wings soon.
It's true she wasn't as active on this case as she has been on others. It seems rather obvious that you're single-minded where she's concerned and prefer to use one isolated example on one episode to paint her with the broadest brush you can find. Next week she'll be the super-detective and some will find fault with her eyebrows, no doubt.
Thanks - and I couldn't agree with you more, on every point. I too have liked Bishop from the start, so her heartfelt and sincere appreciation of Tony was just the icing on the cake.
It's only been in the last two seasons that Tony has been allowed to evolve away from the class clown act that used to be his signature in the show. He got a *lot* of Gibb-slaps back then, and frankly - back then it was very tiresome. I'm glad they've not put him back there - but now we need to see a face-to-face no-holds-barred showdown between him and Gibbs. In any kind of hierarchy like that a good boss works to groom the people under him for leadership - or at least those who have a propensity for it. Tony's got it in spades.
My guess is that the way in which Nick will find out about Juliette's powers will be when she saves him from the next assassin sent Nick's way. Should be interesting.
