By Tony's "greatest fear" being dying along, I think what Tony meant was that ending up along was his greatest "worry" and, if it plays out that way, possible "regret." As someone who has dated as much as it's implied he has/does, he has certainly had countless opportunities to, if nothing else, "settle" and raise a family and have all of that lifestyle. He chose not to both to enjoy his current lifestyle and because those he wanted, well, it didn't work out. As he gets older, he's thinking about all of that. I don't think it's a fear, though, like spiders or heights or clowns or, in keeping with the show's comic turn regarding Tony, a roomful of children.

@Michael...since you seem to have so many issues with both NCIS and NCIS: LA...here's a thought. STOP WATCHING THEM!!! First off...Ziva did not assault Tony. She did the same thing that Gibbs does to the members of the team...it's called a wake up call. I don't have a problem with them showing Tony as scared of toddlers. It's actually funny considering Tony is a big kid himself. It never shows Gibbs as having anything other than a friendship with Pvt Matteson. There was friendly competition. She was the one that seemed to be hitting on him. There is a bond that forms between members of the Armed Forces that unless you have ever worn the uniform you could not possibly understand. Those of us who have fought for our country, even if in different branches of the service, have a special bond with each other. So Michael please...stop commenting on something you know nothing about. I don't mean to be rude to you, however, you really seem to have a problem with those of us that have served our country. I'd really like to know why you are so against the military, when it is because of them that you can spout hatred and ignorance.

Sigh, I ranted already on the episode review page, but really there was a lot of huge holes, gaps and heavy handed politics in this episode. I have no problem with young Gibbs liking someone besides Shannon, there was no implication that he was dating her or anything, but the parallels to Flores were unnecessary screen time. Tony's silliness this episode was also unpleasant and I love his silliness usually. The home-front terrorist plot was just plain bad, cliched and rushed. Even for fictional TV, the idea that the two little tortured girls could have a pleasant conversation with Ziva whilst they were barely hours away from their abuse was just WRONG! Please writers, when you injure someone show some short-term memory about the injuries and have the following scenes reflect some semblance of reality about it!!!

I agree with Eric: The B story and MW's acting made the episode for me. I love this nuanced character, and can't wait to see how his character develops throughout the season. It always makes me sad when fans dismiss Tony as just a clown, when he's so much more.

Loved Ziva and the children. I like this Ziva very much. Seems they finally have a balance with the tough ninja and a more sensitive woman.

I found the ep a bit heavy-handed in places, and still don't see any reason for the Gibbs' flashbacks, which seemed so extraneous and unneccesary to me,but there was enough to like in this episode, so I'll shut up about my complaints.
Always enjoy reading everyone's POV.

What a great episode! Mark's son did a wonderful job but coming from his family I wouldn't expect any less.
Loved Ziva's and Gibbs tenderness with the two young school girls.
This continues to be the best show on tv right now. Good scripts and terrific acting.

So EJ reappears....whoop-dee-freakin'-do (sarcasm intended). Couldn't stand that character and was hoping she was gone for good. Oh well...maybe they'll just tell us what happened to her and be done with it. I really hate to see them waste an episode on this.

Thank you, Odette. What a pity some people can't figure out what's going on.

Berta: Gibbs doesn't quite trust Attorney M. Allison Hart. On the other hand, if we are to believe what Tony described as a perfect woman, he's the one who should be dating Ms. Hart.

About Matteson vs. Shannon:

1.Gibbs met Shannon in 1976, but we were never told when they married. Young Gibbs has no wedding ring.

2.We don't see a love relationship Gibbs/Matteson. The flashbackstory is meant to tell us that Gibbs appreciates female marines and knows how you feel when they die.
