NCIS Round Table: Did Gibbs Keep It Real?

The 1968 bottle of wine, to me, was breaking the 4th wall by using Michael's birth year for the wine year. To me Senior bought a bottle of '68 when Tony was born in 1971. I missed the 1968 birth year in "In The Zone". Good catch. If Ziva had the resume she claimed, she'd have to have been in the IDF when she was 14 and finished with 4 years of college by the time she was 16 so she could win her 1st sharpshooter competition for the Mossad (or vice versa, college 1st and then the army - I don't know how the IDF works). Something had to have been a lie. Either her history or her age.

Bishop is around 28/29 now (Season 12). She'd been with the NSA for 6 years already when we met her so assuming (yeah, maybe I shouldn't do that) she graduated college at 21/22 depending on when she started. This made Bishop around 5 years older than Ziva when the latter arrived at NCIS to try to convince Gibbs that Ari didn't murder Kate.

And attempting to emotionally manipulate Gibbs into dumping an actual NCIS agent off this team because despite Tony getting her father to admit Rivkin was in the US following his orders, she (as always) knew better. Two things.
1. I'm glad the head slaps are gone and I hope they stay gone.
2. I don't like the gender card - that it wasn't OK to head slap women. If it was OK to do it to Tony and Tim then it was OK to do it to Ziva (once that I remember) and would have been OK to do it to Kate.
3. No, a slap to the back of the head is not in the same stratosphere as dropping someone to the ground and pulling a gun on them.
