It's so good to have NCIS back. Every episode can't be full blown action packed. I especially liked the tender moments with Palmer and Ducky. This program is special because of the character relationships and of course the story lines too. I too prefer the one story episodes over the ones like this that go for weeks so hopefully the writers will go back to these most of the time. NCIS is still the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!

I loved it. I've yet to see an episode I didn't like, but then I just love NCIS. I love the characters and am looking forward to the rest of the season.

Another incredible show. It contained a moment that will go down in ncis history - the final moment of Gibbs facing off against a guy he knows wants to kill him & has tried to kill his entire team. The tension, the camera work, the slow unhurried pace - all done to perfection. And we remember for a moment that Gibbs is a killer. A trained assassian. We love Gibbs but there is a part of him that faces death, sees death and kills others. With a calm intensity he is ready to die, accepts the danger & that he might fail but at the same time he is ready to kill those that need to be killed.

Loved it. NCIS is an all time favorite and I can't wait until next Tuesday.
The cast is absolutely fantastic! Mark Harmon is great and the family around him.

Complain all you want,this show was still great and glad to see Ducky's assistant finally got into the opening credits.
The thing that got to me the most was how Jethro Gibbs went in alone to see the killer face to face, followed him knowing the guy was probably going to try and kill him, guy turns his back, Jethro sees the gun on the window sill and calmy pulls out a knife and stabs the murderer in the gut when the man turns around without so much as a flinch. God I love Mark Harmon and his character.

Have to admit I was a little disappointed with this episode. It seemed almost trite - everything tied up in neat package with a bow by the end. The elevator scene wit Tony and Ziva is really disappointed. I didn't need a kiss or proclamations of love but sure we could have gotten at least a couple more meaningful glances. The writing seemed kinda lazy on this on. Lets hope it picks up in coming episodes.

Never have we had to wait so long for such a so-so payoff on NCIS. Maybe it's time for the writers to go back to the one story=one episode format. I would love that since I'm old and my attention span is shrinking daily...

I was sure that making us all wait four episodes + SUMMER for the climax to this story would produce amazing fireworks...but if you blinked you could have missed this "climax." What a waste of the Gibbs machine! It's frustrating, because I love everybody as actors and as characters and they deserve the best material possible...

Kudos to David McCallum for doing a superb job playing the heart attack and the accompanying anxiety and befuddlement...a lovely job of work, as the Brits say. It's always nice to see a character we know so well thrown a major curve ball and he did a wonderful job with it.

I agree with those who say the episode felt flat, and that some of the plot was outright stupid. Why would the FBI keep sending 'canaries' into close quarters to arrest a known bomb-maker?? Then, Gibbs did the same DA*N thing at the end. Obviously by that point, Dearing was ready for death by Gibbs--why not do it in a blaze of glory? Unbelievable that Gibbs would take such personal risk when there are much safer ways to accomplish the goal. Total misuse of Gibbs' talent as a sniper. Also, given the size of the blast at NCIS HQ, I agree with those who say the team should be hurt worse.

Not the most exciting episode. I, too, felt it was a bit flat. One reason was the fact that it wasn't a 'team' episode. There were very few scenes of the team even working together, let alone talking together. Few Tony scenes usually equates to an episode that's lacking in zing. I had high hopes for the Tony/Ziva elevator scenes, not as a Tiva-thing but because I love their rapport, but I felt that part wasn't especially well written. I think part of the problem was the writer/director lost the impact of the team worried for each other. Their survival was very predictable and almost mundane. And did anyone seem worried about Ducky? He has a major heart attack and it almost goes unnoticed by everyone. Hmmm, while I adore NCIS, I felt this episode didn't quite come together as it should have. Perhaps they should have made it a two-parter so that they could spend time on the characters' reactions. After all these months of waiting, I want to see the whole team - not a Gibbs/Vance episode. But every episode can't be perfect so I don't see a need to cry 'shark.' Every season has a flat point here and there. I think the biggest mistake was not having enough Tony/Ziva scenes because that's usually where the energy of an episode lies.
