NCIS – Semper Fortis

It’s just great. It was great before, and it continues being great. And I’m not only referring to Abby’s love life. (Am I the only one to wonder if there had been a friendly suggestion of buying flowers? Especially black ones.) NCIS season twelve is just great. It’s like being back in season one.

Now, if I was in the US and in a position to do something for someone who had been injured (not likely, but still), before this week’s episode I wouldn’t have known it’s illegal to help and that you are much better off letting people die. And if you turn that around, there are others who will let me die in order that they don’t end up in jail. I’m not surprised the scriptwriters picked up on this, or that it’s a very Gibbsy kind of thing to try and change.

And I do feel it was interesting to see the cameo by [the real] SecNav in the diner, in this particular episode. Coincidence? Not to mention the fact that I recognised him immediately, five years after his first appearance.

Great casting of Laura Seay as the Navy Corpsman in trouble. I don’t always like who they pick, but she was perfect for this part.

Dillon

Despite picking such a touching topic for the show, it’s fun to see that they can still put such emphasis on Abby’s love life, including the scene in the men’s toilet, in the midst of being serious. Bishop is taking a leaf out of Ziva’s book.

Hang on! Am I beginning to like her? And what do we make of Burt? Is he good for Abby? There is time for him to turn, and there is time for her to ditch him. Even if it’s later than the two month rule.
