My prayers have been answered. And it wasn’t a bad episode as season starters go. But don’t you find that beards grow in a funny way? Neatly and not as overall rampantly as you’d expect after a certain amount of time. I’m guessing Sean Murray and Mark Harmon didn’t get long enough to cultivate their wildest looks.
So, no Quinn. Thank goodness. And with the more senior agents engaged elsewhere, the team lead went to someone relatively new, with the help of two even newer agents and Dr Palmer behaving more grown-up than ever. And as for politics – and hot dogs – on the Hill, well it’s a weird world we live in.
The doings in Paraguay were fairly standard, as these things go; season starter with one or more agents in an awkward situation far away. But they’ve been trained, and know what to do. Same thing ‘at home.’ When the ‘parents’ are away, the ‘children’ can often cope far better than you’d think. Delilah helped, although it seems that where I believed Bishop was speaking in code, she was merely being indiscreet…
Floor time. I like it!
Unless we are all too traumatised to carry on, I reckon we can now go back to the way we were. And I expect at least Gibbs will lose the beard. I hope McGee does, because he’s really not the beard type. Besides, he needs to learn how to change nappies.
Torres did well. No one ate the raisins off the floor, but there was just desserts for someone, at a time when I don’t even hope for them. Here’s to next week. It’s a date.
