  • McGee is USELESS

    6.0
    My only problem with this ep was that McGee turned out to have out of date skills. TOTALLY flipped his character with this. Every other ep has him with great comp skills and that's why Gibbs hired him in the first place. If he's not at the top of his game he's useless to NCIS and I'm thinking they are gonna replace him with the new gal that's gonna replace Ziva. Love McGee!! Would hate for his skills to be tossed. And why is his character so flat and underdeveloped anyway???

    She ought to appear as often as Fornell

    One of the best parts of this ep! And how easy would it be for Abby to continue saying that if Borin were to come to NCIS full time???!!! One can hope. Diane Neal knows how to play strong, powerful characters. Loved her on Law & Order SVU. And when she shows up on NCIS, I KNOW it's gonna be good! Agents, Producers, The Powers That Be... Get Diane Neal. Get her now!! : ) Nobody could replace Ziva. No one. Borin would make a fine addition to the team, though...



    As for the ep, a mysterious explosion on a "low-priority" oil rig has the team searching for a potential terrorist. The ulterior motive turned out to be nothing more than simple greed. Not an all-together Caf-Pow! storyline but a good one, nonetheless. More of a character driving ep, especially for Borin. Nice to see Charley Brewster again. : ) And compared to previous episodes, this one was a very subtle nod to Halloween. And Gibbs as a prankster?! *gasp* Who knew he has such tomfoolery in him?! :D



    A solid 8.5, if for nothing else, Diane Neal's terrific appearance as Borin...moreless

    Love Borin, she is a great time to time adition to the team, and Id love to see her in the NCIS: New Orleans spin-off as the teamleader, even if they already published the characters, and theyre gonna have a male teamleader, mostly acting like Gibbs, which I think is just boring, I mean there can only be one Gibbs!!!

    Rewatching alle the Borin-episodes every time a new one with her airs, and Im hoping for a lot more, not as with Paula Cassidy, who I also really liked, and I think its a shame they killed her off so early!

    There is an NCIS: New Orleans spin-off in the works. The producers could be looking to have Agent Borin to head up the team there.

    • Gibbs: Ready to go? I'm driving.
      Agent Borin: No, after everything that's happened, I think it's best for everyone if I just pull out of the case. It's fine, look, I'm gonna call headquarters, they can assign you another agent...
      Gibbs: No, Borin, not happening. My case, my call.
      Agent Borin: You pulling rank on me, gunny?
      Gibbs: A Marine leaves no man behind.

    • Agent Borin: (at the docks) I love that smell.
      Tony: Rotting fish carcass and diesel fuel?
      Agent Borin: Yeah, breathe it in.
      Tony: You're a special lady, Borin. I can't wait to meet the peg-legged gentleman who woos you.
      Agent Borin: Yo-ho-ho, DiNozzo.

    • Tony: (referring to his wrapped desk) Timmy, you fell prey to one of the oldest pranks in the book. I guess that's why the classics never go out of style.
      McGee: Lack of imagination and individuality? Sounds like your M.O.
