After all that build-up of how NCIS was going to end, it fell a little bit flat, I think. Unless something drastic was going to take place, it could only end one way, and it did. DiNozzo continued to be less of a buffoon, which is good.
Still some uncertainty as to whether the good Director Vance is good or bad, or possibly just human and a little of both.
For the first time ever, almost, Gibbs seemed a little lost, and the script writers tweaking the meaning of things that happened years ago, to suit more recent developments, seemed a little far fetched.
As season finale cliffhangers go, this was a minor one. But it will do to make us speculate over the summer.
