They got their funeral attire out again. They do look good in it, and this was a funeral worth celebrating, if that’s the right way to put it.
This last of the season episode had obviously been forced on the scriptwriters, but sometimes that makes things come out best. This worked. We had family – more than one father – and we had ordinary crimes and terrorism, and a get-together with an old adversary, as well as a feel-good human act of generosity. No silliness from DiNozzo. Just team work of the best kind. Very satisfying, all in all.
So, no particular cliff-hanger for the autumn. They can do whatever they like. They probably will.
You could tell that Jackson’s old truck would be significant, but not how. The same goes for the supposedly unloaded rifle. Always a useful thing to have nearby. We learned some more about Gibbs’s very distant past, and it didn’t feel wrong. It was totally him.
I suppose he will build another bloody boat now.
