  • The witness of a shooting happens to be Jethro's ex-Mother-In-Law. The ballistics of the crime and the facts don't match up with the crime scene so Gibbs and the team must recreate what really happened and then find the person responsible.

    Not one of the better episodes of the season. This episode was a mess to begin with. The family relationship got in the way from the start and Gibbs did not act like Gibbs. Somehow you knew he knew what had really happened after his first talk with Ducky. Especially when we saw the flashback of what he had done himself following his wife and daughters deaths.

    Now no doubt the two men, the one who was killed and his cohort were guilty of drug crimes, but the rest of the story gets a little gray to the viewer. A stroke of genius by Gibbs to get Ms. Hart involved. She always manages to get this stuck in the mud only this time it was in Gibbs best interest to have that happen.

    I was surprised that Director Vance went along with all of this so easily, but he and Gibbs have known each other a long time. By the way one must mention the Academy Award winning actress Gena Rowlands as Gibbs Mother-In-Law.

    In general the plot was pretty straight forward and they tried to make it convoluted and didn't succeed. Only the fine acting by the cast kept this from a lower score. Thanks for reading...
