Duke didn't make a big deal about finding the door because they still need to figure out who the four people are that can open it. Since people are dropping left and right, they do not have the luxury of time. They need to do something now before the baby cries again. I don't agree with the reviewer. I thought this was a strong episode. Some of the early ones moved slowly but I think that is because they had to deal with Emily Rose's pregnancy/childbirth during early filming. Anyway, when it comes to shows, I find it better to just enjoy the ride and not be too critical since I don't have control over the writing anyway:)
I can understand your desire to want to sit back and let the show take you wherever it wants to go, but my job is, actually, to analyze and review the episodes. I think people like to have something to fight against, even if it's an unpopular opinion on a show they love. It's no fun to show up to a review and see all your thoughts already in print. ;-)
I felt Luke's lines were very good, considering he was the one who was bullied all the time
I think it looks like they are going to be centering on this marvelous new blonde agent with black eyebrows now, rather than dividing time more equitably. I like her less than I did in the first go 'round, and I think her making independent decisions in the field again as she did last episode shows that she is no team player, and has problems with authority. I think the power structure of the casting on this show must be male. Why else would they hire her? And she appears to be Teflon.
If Fornell is stupid enough to take Diane back, he deserves what she will do to him. He is sticking his head into a wood chipper with her.
When their suspect turned out to be Secret Service, I just started laughing. NCIS, the FBI, an IRS agent (Diane), AND a Secret Service agent? Come on! I love this show, but this was ridiculous. And I have seen quite enough of the ex-Mrs. Gibbs, ex-Mrs. Fornell. Her next visit should be no sooner than season after next. She does not improve upon acquaintance.
@ Hilary No, I say that some posters on this site have trouble comprehending anyone who does not slavishly worship at the shrine of Shane Brennan.

Right cuz Gibbs and everyone else for that matter are 'upstanding rule followers who listen to their bosses'. You obviously don't watch NCIS, since everyone has problems with authority.
Yeah, I don't watch it. That's why I own all previous seasons on DVD, well-worn by now, plus all the DVDs of every season of the parent show, JAG. I am as entitled to my opinions as anyone else. I did not like Ziva very much. I loathed Kate. And I don't like this one, the way they are writing her.
I have been a supervisor of people much of the last fifty years. Anyone walking into a job, newly working for me, who started disobeying me and making their own rules and telling me how to run my operation when they have been there so short a time that the ink is not dry on their paperwork yet would have been shown the door, pronto.
Do you even listen to you're self you didn't like Kate Ziva or the new girl and you say that everyone has problems with authority. You don't watch NCIS like at all.
I was hoping that the racist comment would have caused that woman to be warned, as there is a law against two things that happened last night. I felt embarrassed that in this time -especially this week, bullying, disrespect ,and race, would raise their ugly heads. Some people are so simple. I've never seen such stark bitchiness like that pompous woman's who tried to shut up the hostess. I went to bed realizing that some people are shallow, and that such bitchiness still existed especially among people who think that they have it all. They are just false, and need the presence of a higher being to give them the grace that true ladies show. The hostess must be given credit for her cool temper during the constant insults. She smiled during the time the two disrespected her, and some were passive. She had to be hurting while showing a brave face, and responding assertively. What a disgraceful behavior of the renown woman. Snapping at the hostess. She has to lose the respect of some of her associates. What a bad example set by some of these mature women!. The two sisters kept their dignity with the hostess. Thanks for that levelheadedness..
I agree when Bishop offered an alternative to nailing the perp it was more of a suggestion to Gibbs rather than 'wouldn't this way be better'. And the cupcake scene with Tony was a definite adorable moment and a good show of how Tony was matured a bit.
Watched every seasons as the show got worse & worse, hated Gemma more & more and now Tara killed by her this show got so stupid and unreal with bodies pile up the feds would be there in force and the national guard. I will never watch again that jerk should write about wizards or faires
yep right on
@Dan & @Judy McCool - I agree 1000% and couldn't have said it better. She's also too young to be "all that she is supposed to be", and she's really not believable. I used to wait for this show every week, but now I couldn't care less whether I watched it or not. The group dynamic is no longer there.
Reminds me a lot of when Fringe started. But I have to say that the female character are not charismatic or interesting yet. If I remember correctly, there should be 8 out-of-order episodes that should introduce characters, so we can hope that this will be remedied in the next few eps.
Capt. Maldonado is light years away from being as cool and authoritative as Broyles. I'm currently rewatching ST:Voyager and I found myself comparing Maldonado with Janeway and wishing for another Janeway-like female leader/captain on TV.
As a last thought, if the current development of the show reminds us of Fringe, the way they decided to broadcast episodes out of order and the little interest non-scifi fans have in the show remind me of Firefly...
Any episode with the Fornell/Diane/Gibbs dynamic is automatically hilarious. Though I wonder why this round table took so long.
the writers need to be fired. the blond is dumb one minute and smart the next. ncis is going to lose #1. spot..we need ziva back. the show today was a zip and the ending horrible. get rid of the blond. i am not going to watch anymore. kate was good..then ziva was superior acting. i am going to start a petition on facebook, twitter for ziva return. even though ncis la dull for the 1st 30 minute..but i will look at it instead of your show.
