Thank goodness! A really funny NCIS this week! Totally unlikely, but fun. We even had the proximity to Christmas and the Adams Hotel without DiNozzo Sr.
What are the odds that Gibbs and Fornell would have shared a wife, in the first place? And then that Diane keeps turning up. And then that… well, you know. Ex-husbands all over the place and the odd boyfriend. Not to mention McGee. Let’s not mention McGee. I think he’d feel more comfortable if we don’t.
Bishop continued taking disproportionately too much time, but I am allowing for her settling in. She dealt nicely with HR, and learned not to warn people when someone is behind them. (Bishop is clearly on the autistic spectrum, which does bring me back to The Bridge…) Reading the book on autopsies. Honestly.
Young Miss Fornell was an interesting person, and I’d say the screenwriters just about got her age right, considering she was crayoning at the start of season four. Weirdly, I had read about exactly such a contraption as Emily Fornell had, hours before watching. ‘I don’t believe in coincidence!’
Let’s hope all the unlikely stuff that happened this week will be allowed to mature and develop. If not they had no business setting it up.
And I never expected Gibbs could get as tired as he did… Looking forward to what they will do next. So they’d better not disappoint!
