  • Weird story but Tony at his best

    6.0
    I loved Tony in this episode! He got rid off that girl for a while, and he immediately showed how good NCIS still could be without her. Also loved Palmer and was happy for him finally becoming a dad.

    But - I disagree that Amanda would be a much better choice than Bishop. Too young, not really believable as an undercover agent. When she was playing the party girl I liked her but I wasn't all too keen on the twist when she turned out to be an agent. (By the way I really loved the scene in the bus).

    But - the storyline was horrible. Bringing home an admiral's daughter for being naughty - a job for NCIS-agents? Everyone at the Marseille's office had been shot JUST RIGHT before Tony arrived there? The French police woman was the killer? The case in DC and the case in Marseille were connected, and Tony was sent to Marseille at the same time Hazan was found dead in DC? How did Amanda call her party friends when she had broken her phone right before? How could they message Tony the names and the backgrounds of Hazan and Amir via that app? How did they get the car and back to Marseille? How did Gibbs know exactly where they were when Tony didn't contact him again? I could go on with that for a while. So, lousy storyline but I enjoyed this episode, though, because there was so less Bishop. It was a highlight when Vance asked her, "Why are you here"? Good question! :Dmoreless
  • Finally Tony gets to be an agent

    Tony got released from Bishop Babysitting duty, and surprise! he's a real agent again. Great Tony episode. He had more chemistry with Amanda in one episode than he had in 16 episodes with Bishop. Overall this was the best episode of a really lousy season.

    Amanda could have fit right in with NCIS if they wanted to make her a full-time character. This was one of the season's strongest episodes though. Great work with DiNozzo and Amanda, and a great story about dealing with corruption overseas and the difficulty of being on the run no matter where you are.

    I have to admit that Meg Steedle (The Admiral's daughter) would have made a better replacement for Ziva than Emily Wickersham. I've given Wickersham plenty of time to fit in, however there is just something not right with the way she portrays her character. Unfortunately, she's probably firmly entrenched within the cast and there's probably no hope that she'll move on anytime soon or at all. I've seen a half dozen women pass through storylines, all of which could have been a good replacement for the character of Ziva. I have to wonder if Wickersham is a close relative of someone higher up.moreless
  • DiNozzo Shines in Marseilles

    Best episode of the season. Tony can really shine when he has a strong woman to play off of. I loved everything about this episode. Autopsy Gremlin . Palmer's discovery of Tony's message was a creative and fun touch. As much as I enjoyed the show I still feel Bishop is a false note to the show. Some fans like her but a large number don't. Why would NCIS bring back a character that is so divisive to fans for Season 12? But it seems that have decided to do just that for reasons I cannot understand. In any case loved t his episode and next season NCIS may not be my go to show anymore but I will probably still check in now and then especially for episodes like this one.moreless
