More TIVA scenes. Their love has been put to a test since season 3. Seven long years of yearning and sex-eyed to each other with such longing in spite of other relationships with other people somehow felled apart and faded compare to their love for each other which had standed out all these years. It is time for them to declare their love and see where it will go from there.

TIVA needs to b a couple during season 10. They have danced around their feelings long enough. Since season 3 the attraction has been there but after season 9 they should realize that their true love and soul mates are right there across from their desks. No need to look further. Give some fun scenes of them trying to hide their love from the others. They deserve to be happy with each other after the relationships they both had with other people and none worked out because they love each other but too afraid to act on it. Even Tony's father thought Ziva was what his son needed and should act on it.

I agree with Dale. Steve got it wrong about Ducky.

Moreover, I would have expected a Ziva-like character to have a more than healthy paranoia exhibited the first time the Harper Dearing character breached the headquarters of NCIS. I would have expected her to already have a false identity set up, and to have gone completely off the grid to catch and kill the madman, simply out of a self-preservation motive, if not to protect her team mates.

This character inconsistency is disturbingly ongoing. But then again, the whole Harper Dearing characterization was bizarrely unrealistic anyway.

I've liked the Abby character best when she's played dress up, as in S04e06-Witch Hunt, when she wore the Marylin Monroe dress and wig. She was also fun when she first wore the 'southern Louisiana Goth Dress with Parisol', the ep with Abby and McGee gone to South America.

More realistically, though, an NCIS director and SecNav would be expected to have procedures in place to protect domestic offices and personnel from insanely effective terrorists like Harper Dearing. I would expect them to be summarily dismissed should those properties be breached and personnel harmed in light of such lax security. Never mind about the PTSD aftermath.

Steve i think you got the wrong end of the stick. Palmer didn't swallow his pride to call Ducky asking for help, in reality he didn't need help. Ducky even said that they worked a similar case before and so Jimmy new exactly what to do. Palmer was just trying to make Ducky feel better after overhearing his conversation with Gibbs earlier.

How about Vance's loud blow-up in the squad room!? I thought that that scene and the office scene (with Gibbs talking about his car being wired to blow) really set up the potential for some upcoming PTSD sub-plots involving Rocky's character,...now that 'sleeping beauty' Abby has been 'cured'!! :)

To answer your question about her nightmares. Way back in season 1. And now, that's a pretty heartless thing to say. It is a proven fact that old trauma can arise from PTSD. Not only that if you knew someone with PTSD and yelled at them to get over that, that would make you the biggesst jerk ever. You might get away with it since this is telvision of course, but I would definitely chose my words carefully. I agree with you on the conselor though, but the reason he didn't talk to Ducky is because Ducky is technically not at work.

NCIS is best when it's case and it's character development go hand and that wasn't the case this episode. The Abby storyline was mindnumbingly boring, like all Abby centered storyline are, because they always give her some emotional problem the entire episode out of nowhere (worse, she solved this recurring nightmare crap I don't know how many episodes ago) that Abby spends the whole episode whining about that makes you want to scream "GET OVER IT ALREADY!!!" rather than as the caffeine fueled, incredibly happy squirrel that everybody loves her as.

The rest of the story was good enough, but I felt like they could have stretched the crisis conselor's part to at least a couple of episodes and used him to get deeper insight into the psyche of the team members we otherwise couldn't have got instead of him just being there to set up a few jokes but ultimately mean nothing, I'm surprised there's no mention of him talking to Ducky though, considering he almost died.
