9.0 lost a full point for the Tony/Ziva elevator scene - didn't buy the tough girl bawling her eyes out over someone she'd met only a few times when she didn't even cry over Jenny who she'd known for years and told Tony that he was a "slow healer" when he was upset.
Have been very against T/Z as a couple since she put that gun against his chest after dropping him to the ground in Aliyah. Violence like that should never be glorified into romance - even on a fictional TV show. It's just wrong and anyone who has ever been a victim of domestic violence attack - be it a dating/marriage/friendship relationship - would be, justifiably, offended. I haven't and I am.
There are a lot of scenes from this episode that I didn't like. First I didn't like Ziva starting to cry because of Mike Franks death. I mean she is a strong woman, she was killing people, I know she changed a lot, but still she is Ziva. So I agree with Navyresgirl about that scene. I also didn't like Mike Franks ghost and I was surprised that Gibbs didn't suspected about Mike Franks' illness. When Mike arrived at Gibbs' house, he looked so old, so ill. I gave a 7.00 to this episode, I would have liked to see more about these 2 men past. Well, about Tony and Ziva, I think like Navyresgirl, Ziva is too aggressive, with all the change she has sufferred, she is still the perfect image of violence! There are a lot of Ziva/ Tony moments, but I think Ziva is a bit much for Tony! I like more Zivaand her actual boyfriend CI Ray ;D pairing!
