Interesting comment, Aja. In real life, I've seen such obvious mismatches - and I've never been able to make sense of them. So maybe the writers weren't wrong to pair those two personalities together. I know one couple who fought like cats and dogs - right up until their 80's. We all wondered why they stayed together. Evidently something about their dynamic worked for them - even as the rest of us thought shuddered at the thought of ever getting a mate like either one of them. Weird, I know.

It was a long distance shot though.

Yeah I wondered about that. I've been told to fast for 12 hours before blood tests in advance of a checkup - but was never told to quit coffee before one. I think you're right - it was just an excuse to make Gibbs all jittery and headachy before the ex-wives showed up to add to his pain.

Do you have a symphony in mind or do you just like playing the one note?

As for Gibbs: Palmer said that Gibbs was due for his checkup and that's why he had to lay off the caffeine. Nothing to see here. : )

I follow Pauley on Twitter but am very glad I didn't see that particular tweet from her. That's a huge spoiler in itself and would have ruined the shock felt when Diane caught that bullet.

10 points for "termagant". : ) I don't cover NCISLA so can't speak to it.

He sure did. At first I was bugged that he went in alone - but then realized his emotions were just too high. Notice how grim he got when Diane was killed? He stopped being out of control and gained a whole lot of focus - not to mention quiet rage. This was vintage Gibbs and was completely consistent with his character. Too bad he didn't do a full check of the apartment before pounding the snot out of Mishnev.

Aww that's so cold and now my feelings are all hurt.

Thank you for that! I had a brain skip last night when I created the poll. It's now been fixed.
