  • I do not understand

    it at all.
  • BAD...

    1.0
    I love the show, but this was a poorly written episode. I just watched it for the eight time and finally understood it!
  • Lamest excuse for a premiere!

    1.0
    I could have written a better episode than this! Parson turn around so unbelievable (and the fact that Gibbs accepted it so quickly even more so). Whole terrorist storyline predicable and just plain ridiculous (what assassin only makes ONE attempt at the target)!? No Ziva even though it was hyped as part of the farewell to Ziva episodes. Just plain horrible!
  • One of the worst premieres in NCIS history!

    1.0
    Very poorly written episode. Parson's turn around was not realistic in the least. And these must be the most inept assassins in history. What kind of assassin only makes ONE attempt at his/her target!? And CDP was nowhere to be seen, even though this was supposed to be part one of her character's farewell. Very poor attempt by GG, but what else is new-most of his premieres stink!
  • Worst premiere ever!

    1.0
    Story jumped all over the place and really didn't make any sense. Like someone else said, I've never heard of an assassin making only ONE attempt on his target. Parsons turnaround was just too unbelievable. There was too much of him and not enough team! The bad guy was so obvious I'm really starting to wonder just how stupid GG thinks NCIS viewers are. The texting scene was lost on me, as I cannot read small text (I don't get why this wasn't done as a video chat-I think CDP's fans would have been happier if it was). Plus, I won't be surprised if clueless GG counts this as an appearance for Cote. Not very happy with GG or CBS right now!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Vance introduces Tomas Mendez to Gibbs, he states that Mendez is on the board of the Public Anti-Terrorism Coalition. The acronym for this group is PATC, or if pronounced, "patsy", which is ironic considering that Mendez was using them to get to Benham Parsa's targets, making this group a patsy.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Fornell: You know, I'm not gonna kiss you good night.
      Gibbs: What?
      Fornell: Why are you walking me to my car? We breaking up?
      Gibbs: If I could, I would. Unfortunately, I trust you.
      Fornell: Well, feeling's mutual, so there you go. Somebody's got to slay the dragons. Might as well be us.
      Gibbs: Mm-hmm.
      Fornell: (while Gibbs stares at him) Look, if this is gonna turn into a proposal, I'm just not ready.

    • Gibbs: I don't get you.
      Parsons: I watched people die in that hotel. If I've learned one thing, Gibbs, it's that sometimes people do the wrong thing for the right reason.
      Gibbs: Speak for yourself.
      Parsons: I am.

    • Abby: So, McGee, I came down here after last night's horror show to make sure you're okay. I had a feeling that you wouldn't come in.
      McGee: Well, Abby, I'm not an agent anymore.
      Abby: You'll always be an agent, McGee. I also wanted to tell you that Gibbs is headed out of town.
      McGee: Out of town where?
      Abby: Uhm... can she be trusted?
      Delilah: I have a higher security clearance than any of you.
      Abby: So did Mata Hari.
