Remember their convo in Damned If You Do when Tony and Ziva were talking outside of Gibbs' cabin? Ziva put him squarely in the friend zone then.
McGee was def OOC as has been pointed out by others with how derogatory he was with Tony in Hiatus for doing the same thing but don't forget how he acted in Better Angels too, dissing Tony and chain of command with Tony being SFA over taking point. McGee told Ziva in Defiance he does want his own team someday and with as many times as he's insinuated he's more qualified than Tony, it all adds up to big OOC. He would have embraced it full steam ahead.
I do agree with you about the consistent attention to detail and I'll add with a lack of continuity with what's in-character for a character and also honoring established canon. I'm still enjoying the show but do wish DPB could have some input again and that Jesse Stern could be enticed back to write some. I think if DPB had created the new Probie character and Jesse was writing for all the characters again, it would return to it's glory days. But I still think it's possible. So It Goes (the Ducky ep a couple of weeks ago) was fantastic so they've shown us they can do it.
