That's a great review Christine - and I agree with you 100%. What an excellent way to end the series! You know, for a moment I cringed at the thought the writers were going to end it with a twist involving the killer. Felt grateful when it ended on such a high happy scene with Lisbon and Jane sitting there watching as their friends danced the night away. What a great show this was!

As much as I've disagreed with TullaT in the past (and that's been a lot), she's right on this one. Many people are bothered/shocked/disappointed at what was, effectively, an execution. Fornell pulled the trigger but Gibbs set it up. What's more, I think Vance had an inkling about what went on, hence his question to Gibbs about "is there anything else I should know?" He wouldn't know to ask that if he was clueless. And that smile at Gibbs when he maintained innocence was a hint to his seemingly unknowing culpability. He has plausible deniability.

Well thank you for saying that, Lisa! : )

That's what I was curious about too.

Actually it wasn't Kate who shot the unsub. It was one of the policemen from the local area. That actually made the scene more realistic.

Yeah, I think that anyone's even had a whiff of the military knows the protocol around the salute. I'm guessing they put that in there to educate those who may have had no idea. Good catch! And I'm with you about Senior's Hail Mary - can't wait to see more about what brought that on.

Wolfshades

At the start of last season, she proved her worth over a few episodes, when we began to understand her unique abilities to memorize all kinds of information and from that be able to pull disparate bits of information together to form a picture. The problem was that writers also showed that her abilities which served her well in her previous assignment didn't automatically make her a great agent with her new team (ref. her need to pay attention to teamwork, weapons training, etc.). So the bulk of the rest of last year and this season has been spent with her functioning in uncomplaining probie mode. Her worth is there, it's just bubbling quietly at the moment. I have no doubt the writers will let her spread her wings soon.

It's true she wasn't as active on this case as she has been on others. It seems rather obvious that you're single-minded where she's concerned and prefer to use one isolated example on one episode to paint her with the broadest brush you can find. Next week she'll be the super-detective and some will find fault with her eyebrows, no doubt.
