I would love to see Tony portrayed as the champion of the underdog in a case instead of Gibbs for a nice change. That would be a nice way to let us actually see Tony's evolution. It's strange but the last several Tony centric episodes that haven't centered around Senior have been stories about Tony doing something heroic or solving a conflict in his past. We rarely see present day Tony do something heroic, brave, or significant. I wonder if the writers are instructed to only allow Gibbs to show those types of admirable traits in the present. It's been this way for several seasons now and this year the super Gibbs agenda has reached an all time high. I somehow doubt we'll see much actual evolution for Tony except that we'll occasionally see him be a nice guy instead of absolutely always being the joke. I just wish they could sacrifice one case arc in which Tony was the one in the center of a dangerous storm, acting with bravery, heroism and intelligence, instead of always having to see these episodes centered around Gibbs. That would be a nice way evolve Tony back to the way his character was portrayed in the first four seasons.

There was no action (as usual) since it was a Tony episode so there would have been no one for ninja Barbie's butt to kick. Had she been along it would have been purely for the "fun" of seeing her hurl insults and out smart Tony. As we know - only GIbbs gets the suspenseful action stories - no one but Gibbs. Now that Tony's one and done is over it's time for more super action figure Gibbs episodes.
Can you actually quote some of the "nasty" remarks that Tony made to Ziva?
