NCIS Season 12 Episode 19 Review: Patience

I had thought McGee was getting better but this episode knocked him back down a few pegs because of his childish behavior........... I think I agree as well that this story should have been a two parter because there seem to be much more to tell and some of this was rushed.

Remember, we don't get a full 60 minutes each week -- something more like 43 minutes - really crippling for good story telling!

I'm confused as shit now.... Harrison wells flashbacks totally went over my head what stood out most was Mark Hamill's
"I am your father" line complete with Vader'esque sounding music immediately following the delivery

Eoobard thawne became Harrison wells so he could fast forward building the particle accelerator so he can get back to his time line quicker because he needs the flash to do so.

It wouldn't surprise me if Grace and Neil separated because of all the baggage; and then Adrianna talks Grace into Escorting or getting a job in the Burlesque show. Then all of a sudden Neil and a bunch of his Buddy's show up at the show. There are just so many possibilities, however I hope Jablonski stays within the realm of realism and we don't go down a path of wackieness.

NCIS Season 12 Episode 19 Review: Patience

McGee seems to be channelling a three year old lately - I think I'll have to start calling him Baby Snark. Tony is senior field agent, and has been there a lot longer than he has been and Ziva was probably read in because of her Mossad connections, so I don't see his problem. It's almost like the writers need someone acting immaturely every episode otherwise they can't write! Otherwise, one of the better episodes in a while.

NCIS Season 12 Episode 19 Review: Patience

Agree about McGee acting like a bratty child over not getting briefed on the case over Tony, given the La Grenouille case and the one Sec Jarvis gave him at the end of season 8 its understandable why Tony would be the first agent brought in on the more top secret cases. I know it was undercover but the 'intimacy class' scene was really unsettling the obvious age difference between Tony and Bishop for one sends the wrong message, side note I'm pretty sure those were Abby's camera glasses from season 2 Bishop was wearing. The ambassador reveal was surprising yet somewhat expected seriously if all political attach├ęs were in business with criminals the whole government would be in shambles. Palmer and Ducky had some fun moments especially in the lab, and Tony yet again made another Frozen reference. In the end they took down the real drug lord and it all ended with everyone celebrating in the bullpen while Gibbs smiled on. Solid ep.

Bishop is supposedly 30.

I'm still hoping to see Tony do something significant in the field that puts him in danger. He hasn't had ANY suspense this season. It's been Gibbs and McGee in every exciting story, so to see Tony read in, instead of McGee was long overdue. I'm sick of McGee being pushed forward even in B and C plots. With Senior coming back one has to wonder if McGee and GIbbs will once again usurp Tony in importance somehow case wise, while Tony ineffectually wrings his hands again. That seems to be the writing formula when Senior shows up. McGee acted like an unprofessional, entitled, 6 year old but rest assured, Tony will pay for it by being the humiliated idiot for the next several episodes while McGee will likely be right back at Gibbs side - where he has been all season.

@ sadtonyfan

Very sadly I suspect you are right. I too am desperate to see Tony in the field facing a dangerous situation, but with only another five episodes remaining this season and knowing GG's apparent dislike of stories that put Tony in any sort of danger (unlike Don P B who regularly gave him something exciting to do, and even Shane Brennan who wasn't averse to coming up with the occasional meaty episode) I'm not holding out much hope.

@ Dean

So age difference is a problem for you??? SMH................ Well at least you didn't go off on one of your Ziva tangents..................

@ Terrie

Bishops supposedly in her 20's and Tony is bordering late 40's weather it was writers jab at humor or if it was intentionally scripted is unknow but I found it uncomfortable as Gibbs did from the MTAC room.

I don't think I ever heard it said or even mentioned that Bishop was in her 20's..............

"These are not the bad guys, no matter how we felt about them betraying
Coulson and being double (or in Bobbi's case, triple) agents."
To me, they're still the bad guys. I can't help but think something is off with their stories. What if, for example, agent moustache used one of these super convenient masks, disguised himself as Fury and gave Bobbi her orders? Because I somehow get the feeling Fury personally (!) giving every other agents specific orders on a day like that is a bit odd... LOVED the scenes with Simmons this time. Her little moment witz Fitz when she took his hand and looked to him as if to ask permission whether she should help Mack. Her honest chat with Skye. And most of all: sweet, goofy Jemma taking out badass Mockingbird! Great! Equally fantastic was the scene in which May came to Coulson's rescue and brought him to safety, saying "without you, there is no S.H.I.E.L.D." - what a statement! And of course Coulson's always present witty comments ("That was quite an entrance!"). Absolutely looking forward to team Hunter and Coulson :-) And the Inhumans, I hope they start to concentrate more on this storyline, now that Skye is with them.

Really, you think so? That's an interesting theory, it just seemed to me that Gonzales and his team were trying desperately to survive. I might be completely off, but I think he's doing what he feels is right. Even though we all love Coulson, the new director has done some pretty questionable things. I'm hoping in the end they can figure out a way to all work together, which ultimately will only strengthen S.H.I.E.L.D. Yes, more Inhumans please!

@ Henry A. Otero

I'm interested in the Inhuman storyline, too. But, IMO, they are no better than "real" SHIELD in that they don't trust anyone but their own kind. Both of them foster an attitude of "us vs. them" and refuse to give others the chance to make up their own mind. It's really easy for Gordon to put himself in the position of savior, criticizing Coulson & Team for dealing with Skye's abilities from a position of prevention, when he's had the benefit of over 4 decades of knowledge and they have ZERO - and they are being deliberately kept in the dark by the Inhumans. It's a manipulation - they circle the wagons & criticize all those left on the outside for not knowing what's in the middle.

You make a fantastic point about Gordon acting all superior regarding Skye's powers versus Coulson and company's reaction. I completely agree with you on that. Smug, isn't he? I wonder if Skye will discover that a seeming-utopia with everyone accepting of superhuman powers is actually fostering a fear of and/or contempt for regular human beings. Like, "Those *normal* can't possibly understand or accept us, because we're so much better than they are."

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 Episode 15 Review: One Door Closes

Best part for me definitely was Skye/Daisy/Quake manhandling or should I say inhuman-handling the overzealous "nicer" SHIELD. For a supposed democracy style agency who acts so morally superior to Fury, they sent 2 double agents in HYDRA style, they attempted to murder an unarmed SHIELD agent at a secure facility, and performed a tactical assault on the SHIELD HQ. You don't get more Fury-like than that...And you can clearly see Mockingbird is questioning their methods already, Mack too but not as much. I'm willing to bet that the agent who was accidently injured by Skye while defending herself is going to act as if she tried to kill him, and that's going to frustrate me (and Bobbi) for a couple of episodes. Looking forward to the Skye-Raina reunion at Inhumans Inc. (tentative name), and maybe even with Cal (when will we ever get to see him go Hulk mode?)

@ Francesco De la Roja

Haha Inhumans Inc. I love that! I had completely forgotten about Raina. That reunion is definitely going to be interesting. Thanks for your great comments Francesco.

That was super COOL! Witnessing Skye get a better understanding of her powers was beautiful. People are afraid of what they don't know, no wonder Agent Douchebag tried to shoot her first ask questions later.
Love everything about this episode, cranky Coulson is the best: the umbrellas are the best part of cocktails imo. Can't wait to see the damages he will do in his adventures with Hunter, lol.

@ Hot Tea

I think the Coulson/Hunter team up is going to be awesome! Looking forward to seeing what action he takes against the "real" S.H.I.E.L.D. or if they find some middle ground.
