I personally wish they'd wrap Bishop's marriage woes up quickly and sincerely hope that they're not going to further drag out the drama by making Jake do this to her for some kind of case related secret protection reason. I also wish that we could get one episode where we didn't have to have scenes shoe horned in featuring Gibbs new emotional state. Enough already. But I have a feeling both of these melodramas are going to resonate throughout the entire season with the constant Gibbs angst as the season's main course. Soap city.
I enjoyed this episode more than I thought I would. I'm not all that thrilled that the writers have decided to make Bishop's marriage a big plot point but all in all, it was handled pretty well. I hope they don't drag Bishop's angst out for too long because the show already has angstmaster Gibbs suffering on a weekly basis. I don't really want to see Jake undercover or something because I just don't want the entire season to focus on Bishop's drama as well as Gibbs angst. Too much depressing drama. I liked how all the characters got to contribute to the case and all got to be shown as supportive and protective of Bishop. I loved that Tony wasn't used for an idiot moment and enjoyed the little side Baltimore story. I'm still hoping for an entire episode centered around featuring Tony as a great agent without some random accompanying Gibbs drama to hog the spotlight which Gibbs gets more than all the others put together as it is. Undercover Tony would be awesome. Just one please. We haven't seen competent undercover Tony since season 4.
I enjoyed the episode. I really love those extremely rare occasions when Tony is given drama and is written as a brave and competent agent. I really loved the season when Jeanne and Tony had their relationship so I would have been happy if this episode was the start of a continuation of their involvement, but it looks to be a one and done. I was kind of sad that in the one Tony heavy episode we finally get (and likely the only one for the entire season) that Gibbs had to have a big drama as well. Can't they even give Tony one episode for his fans to see him as THE center of the story? Seems like the other characters - Ducky, Abby, McGee, Vance, Bishop - get centric episodes and they get to have their dramas be the central theme without having to share the spotlight. I just don't understand why Tony's one episode with drama and action can't be the big deal just once because the odds are that we'll be back to weak link, silly, insignificant agent Tony for the rest of the season .
