NCIS Season 12 Episode 10 Review: House Rules

I disagree, I'm a huge Tony fan so love Tony centric episodes & usually get bored with any that focus on McGee so I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy this episode so much. It was nice to see some of the past team in flashbacks & also see our 3 hackers return, all with their own unique personalities. However, Sean Murray was stand out, as you finally realised why McGee was more serious, irritable & frustrated than usual. Rule 10 Never get personally involved in a case is a frequent rule to get broken, Gibbs once said this was the rule he had the most trouble with after Tony broke it during Season 7's Obsession. Yet, on this occasion McGee didn't want to be involved but never one to go against an order or let Gibbs down he saw the case through despite his family issues. The final scenes with McGee & his father bought tears to my eyes, not an easy thing to do! So regardless, I found this a unique Christmas episode, I enjoyed the case & the guest characters, the flashbacks were needed to explain some rules & I in fact disagree that more rules could have been included...a couple of times I found myself adding in a rule now & then, such as Rule 10, Rule 11 & Rule 14 to name a few. It showed that the episode can still be good without gun fire, car chases or even leaving the building! Good job NCIS cast & crew. Merry Christmas🎄

I guessed about half way through that there was either a funeral or a party at the end of the episode and by 2/3 of the way, knew which, it was so sad that he had to say all of that in a letter and could not have said it in person, I cried at the end and now we have lost three fathers via NCIS, Ziva's, Gibb's and McGee's. Did we lose Ducky's too? Can't remember.

NCIS Season 12 Episode 10 Review: House Rules

I know this was a very different episode and the writers can't please everyone, but that's life. I had read a spoiler somewhere so I knew it was going to be sad. I really like the McGee character and the changes through the years. I really wouldn't want him to change too much as well as the others since that's what has made this program the best on tv. I appreciate the Christmas episodes so much. Yes they always say thank you to our military at the end and hopefully will always do that. As we all know freedom isn't free.

I was going to give my 2 cents about that bike ride also. It is my take after the conversation with my pals last night, that Grace had probably already reasoned much of the justifications for cheating before she left on that memorable ride. Grace had been lonely for quite some time. Her sex life with Neil had diminished to almost nothing. The final straw occurred the night before when Neil did not react properly to her pleadings for companionship and intimacy. She probably felt that all normal avenues had dried up, and that she needed to explore other possibilities. It is quite possible that had she met the right candidate, she might have entered into an affair which was oriented to terminate her marriage and bond with a new mate. The fact that Simon was an escort, was probably an accidental bonus. I believe she left on the bike to see if a hookup was possible. She was attracted to Simon and vice versa. I am sure that Simon would have spoken to her for some time before he slept with her. He would have ascertained her needs and motivations. He might have bedded her on credit or free for the first time. She would have revealed her ability to pay or maybe made arrangements to pay later. After all, Simon knew Grace was married. Simon surely would know how to interview prospective clients and get some idea of their financial solvency. If I were a betting man, I would lay odds that Grace was in the sack on their first meeting at his apartment. She had come a distance and probably would not have left without some fulfillment. In my conversations with the escort (Ray) he indicated that closing the deal as quickly as possible was an imperative. This would mean that Simon would use all of his charms to get Grace to submit. If he were worth his while, the sexual relief that Grace realized would be the impetus to bring her back. Grace might have agreed to seeing Simon, even if he was an escort, because the sex was that good. Simon is 12 years younger than Grace and could have given her the vigorous physical intimacy she desired. it is obvious that she liked it a little rough. Grace might have concluded that she could be satisfied with 1 meeting per month ($600), but as the sex became more comfortable and she became accustomed to fully submitting , her desires mounted. She would then have increased the number of visitations per month. The frequency may have increased to the point where Grace became unable to pay all the moneys on time. That is why she brought the remaining amount she owed to his apartment.
Again, these are speculations that we may never know the truth about. Maybe the truth will come out as Grace opens up about her affair as a part of the process to repair her marriage.

Golfingdocp, I think your scenario sounds right on point. I think Simon's radar picked up on the fact that Grace was a potential client because she was trying too hard to kick back and have fun. I think Simon, based on his experience, knew that women, acting as Grace was that night, were your typical frustrated housewives who were looking for a little adventure. I'm sure he was also able to determine her financial situation by seeing how she was dressed (I bet Grace had on expensive shoes that night). I would bet money that Simon routinely goes trolling in certain areas (nice upscale bars, nightclubs, etc) because he knows he'll be able to find the frustrated soccer moms out for a night of fun and that he can use his routine to reel them in (even if he's on a date).

I'm waiting to see how Jane deals with a future with Lisbon. That scene with Pike showed he had serious concerns. He is in law enforcement only because - first it was a way to track Red John and, second, it is where Lisbon is. He loves using his mentalist skills but hates the physical violence that revolves around. As for Lisbon, she loves law enforcement and the rules that provide some overall stability while Jane hates rules and cares only for justice regardless of the rule bending/breaking shortcuts it takes to achieve that. I'm sure they will work out something that satisfies both of them and I look forward to what that is. In the next episode it appears that Lisbon tries her hand at mentalism and is enjoying it. An opening to how they can meet each other's needs as well as their ow?
