This was one strong episode from a strong season of NCISs. Directed by Rocky Carroll, no less. Apparently the man is difficult to work with, or so he thought.
Interesting plot about a gay marine, which I believe the cast felt strongly about. And it shows. Plenty of homophobic characters as you’d expect, and very nicely dealt with. After the teary end to the story about our dead hero, I felt we were due something to cheer us up, and I was right.
It was a baby we needed. Palmer and Mrs Palmer (give the woman a cheese burger!) finally have a little baby Palmer. Even Gibbs smiled.
They had better not kill Hollis Mann off! Lovely to see her back. Not so lovely when you think about Gibbs and his reaction to her presence. Ducky would appear to be on the right track.
(This is the only kind of visit to autopsy that I will tolerate from Hollis Mann.)
