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.
Emily told me about the NCIS consultant they have on the show, so clearly they're aware of what they're doing. The bottom line though is exactly as leia suggested: viewers aren't interested in the nuts and bolts of military protocol. They just aren't. And this isn't a crime procedural show like Criminal Minds (which by the way, is a show that isn't exactly on target either, there being no real BAU jet in real life). Fans are more interested in the action and drama than they are the intricacies of military structure and protocol. For example, MTAC is there purely as a device to achieve a sense of importance. The fact is those characters aren't at ALL following protocol when it comes to that room. And people generally don't care - except for those who've been privy to that environment in real life. It's all about the entertainment, not the accuracy. FWIW, I find myself irritated by various computer-related aspects of the show, only because I've worked a number of years (and have had schooling) in that arena. It bugs me when I see stuff that just isn't possible being portrayed on screen. I'll always be bugged by that, but acknowledge that the writers aren't as interested in accuracy as they are creating a scene that appeals to viewers within a limited time frame. Abby's abilities to glean information from minute bits of forensic evidence - all in a very very short time - strikes me as miraculous and magical. It's not real. The characters, the stories and the viewers are all just here to have fun.
