    Great episode. The case plot was interesting and engaging, but wasn't so important it took over everything. Gibbs and Fornell were funny, and the Tony as the face of NCIS subplot was great, though once in a while it would be nice if Tony actually got the happy ending for once. Whenever something happens to Tony like this, something always screws with it. For example, when Gibbs calls Tony "irreplaceable" then negates it in "Missing", or when Ziva invites Tony to dinner in "Boxed in" then he finds out that the rest of the team already went, or when he thinks he's up to inherit a lot of money, it turns out he's in a lot of debt. It's become almost part of NCIS's recipe, that it could be predicted that something would go wrong, which just made the whole subplot disappointing in my opinion.

    But overall, the case was good, everyone got their moment, Gibbs called McGee "Tim." Abby and Ducky weren't in much, but were still instrumental in solving the case. I'm pleased.
