The whole word was shocked when Kate was killed in the Season 2 finale and now, looking back at these early episode with Sasha Alexander, it makes you appreciate what an integral part she was to NCIS. Now, I much prefer Cote de Pablo to her, but I'll probably be tuning into her new series, Rizzoli and Isles, and this does not mean that I cannot still enjoy her NCIS tenure.
Tonight's episode focused on crop circles: yes, you read that right, and how Abby was reluctant to accept that they were a hoax. The episode was a good mystery and one that saw a rare Ziva interrogation, something that should be done more in the future.
7/10, a flawed episode, but still a good one.
