It was an intense episode with some humor tossed in. I loved that Diane said, "Holy 4th of July weenie roast" when she found Gibbs and Rebecca asleep on the couch, just as Fornell had when he found McGee and Diane. (And why was everyone so suspicious? In neither case did it look like the couple had had sex.) Also, Gibbs' "Guess I picked the wrong week to quit coffee" homage to Airplane. As soon as they said the shootout in the diner was staged, I thought of Jenny, but until Diane and Gibbs were there, I didn't expect a Kate-like death. So awful, though the way they put in his memories (granted, the proposal one was from a recent episode). I'm pleased that he wants to tell Fornell, but he'd better do it quick, because Fornell will (or maybe already has) heard it from someone else soon. I was very touched by Jimmy refusing to do the autopsy; he and Ducky have had to do too many of their "own." But I was taken out of the moment trying to recall if Jimmy and Diane had ever met, much less were friends. It seems all of Gibbs' ex-wives invite him to their weddings. Hell, Diane and Tobias even asked for his blessing for their remarriage (so Diane's death makes me feel so sad for Tobias; and is his daughter his and Diane's? Uh oh). Rebecca's invite is the oddest, though; they'd had no contact (as far as viewers know) and she was marrying the man who assisted in destroying their marriage! Making atonements is one thing, asking him to the wedding seemed a bit cruel. Scared for future episodes!
I waffle in thinking that Ali is A. She has shown a good amount of fear when she's alone (or possibly alone) in earlier episodes. There would be no reason for her to feign fear when she's alone (unless Mona had cameras on her, too!). So even if Ali is A, there's someone after her (as we were led to believe in the first place). I liked seeing Mrs. Grunwald, and it was sad to hear about Mona's unhappy soul. Her shared look with Ali was strange, but Hannah's response to the contipation observation was great.
It seems that they're bringing in the twin theory. Apart from Ali's Ghost Mona-produced memory, the DNA from the body found originally (Bethanny) would have matched Ali's since they were identical twins. (Ought to have stuck to dental records in this case!) Also, in the picture that Jason showed Ali, she obviously didn't remember the day of that ski trip because it was Bethanny in the picture. I'm not sure if Jason knows if this is Ali or Bethanny (not using name changes that were used in the books!).
