  • The Brutal Murder Of A Retired Marine Leads The Team To Interrogate His Troubled Teenage Son. The Case Will Be More Complicated Than Anticipated.

    "Out Of The Frying Pan..." is a very good episode. Unfortunately there are just too many problems which prevent me from giving it a ten. The good thing here is the case. It was a nice change of pace to have an episode where most of the events take place at the headquarters. The plot involving a kid who uses drugs and alcohol etc. is a current topic in the world. The biggest problem is Leon Vance. He overacted here and it was very unrealistic to see him striking an axe in the interrogation room. But that is a minor flaw in this killer episode. The ending scene where Gibbs arrests the killer was brilliant. I recommend this one!
