    Shows where Gibbs gets his sense of right and wrong. Great tribute to Americans who have not been recognized for their contribution to the USA

    This was a really good episode with a good storyline involving two Leroy Jethro's which helps us to learn about Gibb's past I remember the other Leroy Jethro getting mentioned in season 6 but I never thought we would ever see him It was good to see Leroy Jethro and Gibbs father start talking in the end and its been so far a good season.

    I always enjoy episodes where we see Papa Gibbs so for that alone I liked this episode, but getting the bonus of learning about Gibb's namesake? Awesome!



    I admit I wasn't really invested in the mystery of the week because I was lot more riveted by the Gibbs storyline. That said, I really did crack up laughing a ton over Abby being flirted by the billionare guy, mostly because I knew that scene was coming from the moment she kept wanting to find a reason to arrest him, but it was still hilarious.moreless

    I really enjoyed this show. The team working together is always great even though this time the show was centered more on Gibbs and his name-sake (a black man). And the argument between Gibb's dad & his namesake had Nothing to do with being a selfish rich man. 1-I've never seen anything that states that Gibb's dad was rich. 2- Gibb's dad was not being selfish by going against his best friend/partner - I believe it was jealousy because his wife went to the friend to state she was going to take her life and said nothing to her husband. While Gibb's namesake understood why she was going to take her life and loved her enough to let her.



    This was enjoyable to watch.

    --- And the shows that revenge is never a wise choice.moreless
  • Great!

    This episode was definitely superb, and it developed the back story of Gibbs even more. NCIS has always been really good at character development and today ws no exception.



    It would be fair to argue that the case featured in this episode was weaker than the other cases so far this season, but it was strong enough that when coupled with the great back story, it comes together to create a truly amazing episode!



    I really enjoyed it, and I hope season 10 continues to impress!moreless

    • Tony: Petty Officer Colin Boxer is from Red Hook, which is a pretty tough neighborhood in Brooklyn. He was the starting two-guard on the local high school basketball team.
      Ziva: Where he was suspended for shaving. Why do they not want their players to shave?
      Tony: Shaving points, Ziva. In the state finals, boss. He was suspected of taking money from bookies. Not good.
