I guess McGee is officialy not a probie anymore!
This episode is a landmark for the character.
If you have watched NCIS from the beggining and you remember how McGee used to be back then, you'll know what I mean. It's really noteworthy the character's development throughout the series, the writing and the acting has been extraordinary indeed.
McGee lead the episode from the beggining to the end, he took the initiative to solve the situation himself, and showed what he's capable of and what he stands for. No more underestimating his abilities as an agent from now on. He's really starting to look like the typical Gibbs Team offspring. The base plot was very good too.
This is amongst the top episodes of season 6 so far.
