The acting in this episode from the cast and guest stars was brilliant. I thought the story was beautifully written and I was really caught up in the emotion of what the characters were experiencing.
I also loved the Tony and Ziva moments.
I do hope that there is an episode this season that takes the time to look at the bond between Tony and Gibbs,,,as much as this episode showed the empathy Gibbs had for Westcott. This is something we haven't seen for too long.
Great job NCIS, this is one of the strongest seasons ever.
