The case was quite interesting but nothing new. They had that topic before and did it better. The final solution in this case was strange because they had no witnesses or physical evidence against the rapist. So they screwed it up in the end - again. Here and there it was a bit like NCIS in the old days with Gibbs, Abby, Ducky, Palmer, McGee, and Vance being a bit more themselves than in the last episodes, but it wasn't enough of the real NCIS I used to love to please me. By the way I liked Cabot. Please, can we have her instead of Bishop?
I absolutely hated that they sticked Bishop and Tony together this time. Her interactions with him are awkward. They have no chemistry at all, and I can't get rid off the feeling that Weatherly doesn't like Wickersham. Tony is supposed to be nice to Ellie but his body language tells you something completely different. He comes across like a babysitter who has to deal with an annoying child against his will. Tony has always been my favourite character, and I don't like that they made him look old and stupid next to that unbearable girl. What did Weatherly do to the writers to deserve such an awful plot? Liked Cote too much, or what? "Mind if I dance with your daughter"? And then that stupid little girl - who has no experience in the field at all! - gives HIM orders and behaves as if she was the Senior Field Agent and not him. Yuk! That really, really sucks!
1 point for the case that started out well, 1 point for a glimpse of NCIS here and there, 1 point for Cabot.
