Great episode. Well developed story-line. Great idea to have the 5 interns, who have been obviously cast with attention to their differences. They did a great job of playing off one another.
The only gotcha was having Hodgins describe the jet fuel as containing both kerosene and ethlyene glycol. That's just B.S. science. Mixing jet fuel(kerosene) with antifreeze makes an incombustable mixture. I don't think jet engines even need liquid coolent beyond using the fuel itself. Synthetic lubricants provide all that the turbine bearings need.
It only took one google request to find the wiki concerning jet fuels.
Its interesting that this week's Bones ep also dealt with returning vets' problems. I also appreciated this sympathetic character development of a societal problem faced by these people. This episode was really well done by the writers, as well as all the actors. I also appreciated the pic of a young Michael Weatherly.
Though having Ziva be so understanding of Tony does seem a stretch, in light of all her background as a super violent assassin/spy, I also like the chemistry.
So the question arises again: do we have the potential for seeing director Vance enter the picture, because of the need for leadership due to the potential size and complexity of this plot line? Here's a chance to show the team's potential growth into a truly sophisticated organization, dealing with international terrorist activities.
So, do we need an acronym for McGee and Abby? How about McGabby? Heh heh. I agree with all of the above comments about how solid this episode was: Good story line, good detail, no B.S. pseudo-science.
