NCIS Review: You Are Not Alone (1/16/2013)OK, it cut off my last comment. I'm ticked both that they killed another female character we cared about as well as breaking the one "normal" family we had among the main characters. Was Eli's Iranian counterpart killed in DC? I'll have to watch again but I thought he was killed somewhere else on his way home - Paris or London perhaps? More time to set it up and less chance of getting the Americans involved. Also Jackie was listed as being in the episode but I don't remember seeing her. Will have to watch it again.
NCIS Review: You Are Not Alone (1/16/2013)OK, raise your hand if you thought "Oh, look there's Eyal. Where's Annie?" Wondered there for a second if I was watching USA instead of CBS. When his character first appeared on Covert Affairs I had to stop and think a minute if he was a crossover from NCIS (I think he reminded me of Hadar and Malachi). About the deputy director - at first I wondered if he had the job because of who he was related too. Every place has one (even govenment agencies) - someone who was hired because they looked good on paper and had a relative pushing for them. But as time went on and he found his footing the character grew I think. Vance once said he saw the agency as needing more Tim's than Tony's. So my point is I think the character is someone either Vance or SecNav or both saw as a possible future director for NCIS just like Vance sees Tim as future director material. I'm still a little ticked both at NCIS for killing off another female character - Kate, Paula, Jenny, Lee, Lacy and now Jackie (not always a main character but a female character we saw more than once and heard about often) - and for breaking the one "normal" family of the whole group. Also, are we sure Eli's Iranian counterpart was killed in DC? I'll have to watch it again for background landmarks but I thought he was killed somewhere else on his way home - Paris or London maybe?
