It was a great episode, and in my opinion totally made up for the season finale. I loved the ending, but it's only a 9.5 in my book because there have been episodes of the show ALOT better, like Frame up, Bloodbath, Twilight, and Bete Noir, just to name a few.
I thought that it was great, but I was hoping for a little more emotion about Tony's "situation" and I wish it would have been longer, LOL. I wasn't ready for it to be over. How long is it until next Tuesday?
BTW, I gave it a 9.5.

I gave it a ten.....great emotions...acting....writing....ringtones! LOL! ;D
And a real surprise....Scottie Thompson controlled the screen everytime she was on..... The pain she had in her eyes was only bested by poor Tony's expression and his anguish at having to tell her who he was-and who her father was!
A total resurrection after that bad aftertaste of a finale!
Another plea on behalf of those of us who live overseas - how lomng did the team think T was dead for?
The explosion happens just before the end of act one and the team doesn't realize it wasn't Tony until just before the end of act two. (And we don't see him until act three). Interestingly McGee refused to believe it and seemed to be the only one really convinced. Ducky and Abby seemed like they were trying to be optimistic but not making it. Gibbs actually seemed somewhat convinced - he was very shellshocked and at one point Abby says "Tell me he could still be alive" or something like that and he whispers "I wish I could." And Jen and Ziva definitely believed it.
And how did they react when they saw him again?
Just little smiles of relief, but they knew he was alive before they actually saw him. Just before the end of act two, Ducky is doing the autopsy prelim on the body and notices that the lungs aren't scarred. Tony's would be because of him having plague. (This scene is so beautiful and awesome that I can't give it justice trying to describe it, so hopefully someone will post a clip)
How much did Gibbs know?
Well, he didn't know Jeanne was a case apparently, which surprised me given a couple of his looks in season 4. And he wasn't too happy he didn't know either.
What was up with Kort?
Uh, an owl climbed up his butt and bit him? In seriousness, I don't know. Kort is committed to working for the CIA and is on their side. They appeared to be using the Frog and may or may not have killed him at the end. And Kort is still really mad about Jen's involvement at all.
"You don't sound very optimistic. So all these people just die?"
9.5. it would've been a 10 if they had told me how jen's dad's fingerprints were on the glass and where jeanne went.
i hope they are planning to use her again - to keep the tony angst going. because if this is how they're ending his involvement with her - and we never see/hear from her again - i will not be happy with this resolution. however, they were so fantastic with everything else, i'm sure they have more planned with the tony/jeanne storyline.
It's a 7 for me. I just want this whole thing to be over. But Jeanne is still around (sort of), Tony still persists in the delusion that he's in love with her, Trent Kort is still pretending that he's the good guy, Jethro still thinks he runs the agency, and we're going to have to put up with goodness knows how many more episodes of this before it all just finally and mercifully goes away.
On the other hand, it was a lot better than Brother in Arms.
And a plague reference! Yay! ;D How long have I been waiting for one of those?
P.S. AngelZ, is it meant to be chanted ("Zombie! Zombie! Zombie!") or wailed like in that Cranberries song?

I gave it a 9.0 as it still didn't answer all the questions however I really really liked this episode. I thought it was so much better than the Finale. I was a little worried after the Finale but this was great. I really liked when they cleaned out Tony's desk because that is what happens in an office. I also liked the slow motion when they got to the car as I am sure you will feel that way if you were going thru that type of situation. Very well done!! ;D
