We liked this one, Daughter and I. It’s rare to sit through a whole episode actively thinking ‘this is good.’ And we both knew who ‘did it’ too.
There were even some scenes on ships, which we used to have so much of in the early years and now hardly ever. (As they said on LA the night before; the N in NCIS stands for Naval, so you might as well expect some boats.)
Didn’t quite get Bishop’s letter to President Truman. Apart from some weirdness, I felt it changed tack towards the end.
But you could tell that there would be this nice warm feeling towards Gibbs, and this really did change the meaning of sleeping with the boss. (Although, if those were all McGee’s clothes, he has a very limited wardrobe for someone living in DC. Get the boy a wooly jumper!)
Nice to meet McGee’s rubbish friend again, even if a corpse in the rubbish is slightly lacking in originality.
Generally lovely, though.
