Danny was being true to himself. He's hard-nosed and has trouble believing that anyone has the will or capacity to change. He's seen way too many con-artists, and that has colored his perception of all ex-cons. I think he can be forgiven, particularly as Erin does have the capacity to understand people a little better than he does, and won't change either. The brother and sister are a lot like oil and water.

Key point: when the Reagons are having their after-dinner brandy or whatever, they're off the clock - and that's what Frank meant. When you're on the job, you're sober, and not drinking at all.

Thanks, Kathleen. Didn't know that.

No, MGG didn't direct this one. It was written by Erica Messer - the Criminal Minds showrunner and executive producer, and directed by Glenn Kershaw.

I wondered about that too. Maybe it was a case of scaring away the wolf's pack, based on the "where there's one, there's probably more" principle.

I'm getting the sense that Frank is seriously thinking about stepping down from the Commish job. That discussion at the dinner table with Erin was a little foreboding, wasn't it? Particularly when he gave that unqualified statement "I hate the job" (or "my job" - I can't recall which way he put it).

NCIS Round Table: Did the Team Fail?

As it happens, no - the minute a virus makes contact with another computer, it's out there. I remember when there were a few nasty ones that were defeating our virus protection: the company got all of the techs and their many levels of managers to out to the floor and do a massive anti-virus clean and patch on the desktop machines. It was surreal.

Hi Sue Ann. No, I get that any parent would want to hug their kids after a tragedy like that, including Pride. What I don't get is why the writers felt the need to create all of this emotional scenery when we don't even know the man yet. It's way too early. This kind of case should have come at us near the end of the season, once we've gotten to know him better.

I know enough to know that there's zero possibility of a virus that can jump from an ethernet connection over to a power connection and start replicating to other computers that way. Not now anyway - maybe later, as technology progresses, it may be possible (though why anyone would want to take a step backward and continue with cords of any kind is beyond me; the trend is toward wireless). You yourself said that for such a setup to work "usually requires adapters or additional hardware inside the pc". In my work for a large organization (my specialty was desktop hardware), I've never seen a need for this. So why would NCIS have such a configuration in their computers, and in particular, in the laptop that Abby used? It would have been more believable if we knew that Abby had actually left a wireless or ethernet wired connection in place, and the virus escaped that way.

YES! I agree - I hope we see him again. He was amazing wasn't he?
