A bit of an anticlimax, no? Even this old cynic who did not expect Gibbs to be completely dead, felt that perhaps it was all too fast and easy. OK, they made use of the four months missed, but still. His hair had time to grow, making him look most un-Gibbsy.
But we could see Mike Franks again, and we were treated to our third or fourth Kelly. And was that Mark Harmon’s Airstream?
I did like Dr Taft, despite his chatty behaviour being a little to daft to be real.
Some lose threads left hanging. The question is whether they will be dealt with, or simply forgotten about.
It’s nice that they are back. All that remains to be seen now is whether they can change gear and make season 13 something really special.

Really? Is it bullet proof vests again, or not? As the Resident IT Consultant said the other day, it gets tiresome – if lifesaving – to have people go down and then get up with the aid of kevlar.
I have not been following speculation on what will happen in NCIS season thirteen. I suppose it is the unlucky number, but you wouldn’t kill off your leading man just like that. Would you? We are meant to spend summer in a state of nerves, worrying about Gibbs. I don’t think I can do that. I mean, I won’t. I don’t see the point.
Who was the American girl they followed at the end? Sometimes I reckon it’s not me being slow, but script writers forgetting we need thread to tie bits of episode together with. And Morse code. Honestly? You need to know it for it to work on the subconscious.
I do quite like Officer Teague. She’s a proper NCIS kind of character, with none of this over-romantic young and beautiful/handsome actor pretending badly. They don’t get them right very often. Is she bound to die? I don’t think so, but you never know.
One question is whether they already know what will happen at the start of the next season. Sometimes it seems they write a cliffhanger and then go away and brainstorm a solution two months later.
And did they ever stop to think about having yet one more baddie with a British accent? If this continues, I suppose we’ll soon find that Ducky has been an enemy spy all these years. Very deep cover.
