WOW! 9.5 EDIT: Just finished re-watching - changed vote 10.
That is NOT where I expected this episode to go.
Loved beyond measure that last scene and that Tony went from goofy (Brenda Bitner posting that she and Tony were in a committed relationship after a one-night-stand) to serious (his attraction/"obsession") with Dana Hutton.
Didn't you read all my comments on this episode in the other thread?
If you want to know how I would rate this episode, I would give it a 7 or 7.5
The whole Tony getting obsessed was poorly written, especially the lack of the reason why he felt the need to become stalkerish and violent with the producer guy. And of course the whole one-night stand thing with the coffee-shop lady was just weird and in my opinion a stupid way to bring it up that Tony is looking for Ms Right. And I totally contradicts with his later obsession for the reporter girl. Going from one-night stand to thinking that he found Ms Right only by looking at a face is just strange and unbelievable. Michael Weatherly's acting and Palmer saved this episode though.
Gave it a 6. More in depth review in the other thread, but the short explanation is: Weatherly's acting was astounding, DiNozzo's sudden obsession was very poorly explained and he came across as kind of stalkery, Ziva was just as right to push him for his weirdness as he was to push her for hers during the Rivkin mess, and I'm already tired of the lawyer from Wolfram & Hart. Not going to be one of my favorites, no matter how good MW was.
Wow! This just went straight into my all-time top 10
I always love seeing Tony's serious side, and this episode showcased it beautifully. Loved the last scene with Gibbs and DiNozzo in the basement, and the piano-playing in the dark.

Tony: You be worried about him. I'll be tentatively troubled, privately perturbed, fleetingly flustered. Ziva: Have you called him? Tony: I would have to be deeply discombobulated to even think of calling him.
