"Newborn King" is another great episode. It starts slowly but keeps the viewer's interest throughout. The whole idea of bringing Ed Slater (Breena's Dad) to NCIS headquarters was awesome. Jimmy's wedding plot is excellent and it just makes the character even more likeable than he already is. The main plot was very well written and I enjoyed it very much. Seeing how Gibbs planned the final move in the gas station was pure excellence. It's one of the most moving scenes in this season. It was emotional seeing how Gibbs assisted Emma when she was giving birth to her son. Mark Harmon has done his job well in the series. What added to the enjoyment here is seeing the fact it's Christmas. Overall, a very good episode. I recommend it!!!
I really enjoyed the case today. It was very well done, with lots of great scenes, such as the cookie interrogation, the child birth and the storylien with Jimmy and his future father-in-law-to-be.
I have to say that I'm not particulrly happy with character development on the main cast in recent weeks. However, speaking strictly about the case, I have no complaints and I really loved it! It was definitely a unique one!
Please keep it up, NCIS! Two episodes in a row which I have been happy about! Please keep the trend going! :)
I enjoyed the episode, it was interesting, good amount of stakes, and Ziva got to do her kickass thing which is always fun. Yet, what really stood out to me was the interrogation scene with Tony and McGee. Gibbs is an incredible interrogator, but these two in room together is simply fun and extremely impressive. It was a good way to keep the bad guy off balanced, confused, and talking. Nice job guys!
Very good episode, with Jimmy taking on center stage and his obnoxious soon to be Father in Law.
***Danger Will Robinson----------Spoilers ahead***
I thought Abby's reaction to Jimmy's "Father in Law" was superb, likening him to the Grinch and hiding behind the filing cabinet. Even better, locking him and Jimmy up in a Sin Bin was brilliant.
The main story arc with the pregnant Marine was well thought out and acted by all concerned. Ziva, as usual, kicking major ass taking out the bad guys.
If I have a very minor gripe, it's the incredibly speedy delivery of the baby in the car by Gibbs, as I have always believed the first childbirth is usually a pretty lengthy experience. Eh, what do I know, I'm just an old fat guy, with no kids.
Liked the guys logic in finding Gibbs and Ziva and speeding, or should it be "sliding" to the rescue.
As for the lack of "TIVA" in this episode ncisluvver 33, this seems to have been completely shelved in this series, pretty much altogether with little or no interaction between the two other than strictly work related.
If the writers intend to resurrect TIVA, then IMHO, they need to get on with it as the interminable "will they or won't they" is massively boring after this number of years.
Let's face it, we all know there's no rule, AT ALL, prohibiting agents going out together, only Gibb's rule whateveritis, so get on with it already or put all the "shippers" out of their misery and marry one of them off.
Very good episode and I can't wait for the New Year 'till it kicks off again.
Sweet with danger & action. And I loved Gibb's smile & entire face when he delivered the baby. Ziva was really good kickin' xxx. And was thrilled when Jimmy gained confidence to tell his future dad-in-law what's what!
Very good show!
I must say that NCIS has the best groups of actors/actresses who go so well together. The Compliment one another so well. Would never be same if one was not there.
loved it all! all the characters and the scenes everything i think it was a little too focused on the pregnant lady but i understand why... that ziva scene DAMN girl you can kick some ass majoy part of the episode but come on no tiva? and i mean none??:( but overall great episode i loved it and im looking forward to the next with some TIVA hopefully<3
I've always enjoyed NCIS Christmas episodes and this one is no exception. I love it when Gibbs steps in as midwife. (while Ziva is taking down the Bad Guys). And thank you writers for giving Jimmie a backbone to take on his fiancee's obnoxious father. Now, if only Tony takes Gibbs' advice -- seriously it's time for Tony to become an adult.
