Gibbs was amazingly nice to the little boy! I found Jenny to be a little bit weird...the way she just walked into Gibbs' basement and flaunted the fact that she was going on a date. I was a little bit mad. It seems that Gibbs once had a daughter...maybe they'll bring up more of his past in later episode.
All in all, a super episode, although I was a little bit disappointed by Jenny's appearances.
I gave it a 9.5..Gibbs was excellent as usual, though I wish they hadn't given away the ending with the picture at the beginning of the 4th act. Ziva certainly changed course in her belief that Zach's dad was guilty in a hurry, and are they going to get the charges against the secretary thrown out of court because of Ziva's 'interrogation' of the woman. But an excellent ep all the way around!
Abby: "You're getting sneakier the older you get." Gibbs: "Not to mention better looking."

This is one thing that sometimes annoys me about NCIS. They don't seem to worry at all about whether their case will get thrown out of court because of the way they obtained evidence. In Sub Rosa, Tony threw a rock through a window because he didn't have a search warrent. In Lt. Jane Doe, I don't think he had a search warrant then either. In Boneyard, I can't see any judge accepting as evidence the blood group records that Kate and Tony got from the clinic.
I liked it a lot, actually. It reminded me of "See No Evil" -- in reverse, kind of. Maybe that's what they were going for; I'm not sure. But I liked it.
I enjoyed Zach. That kid was a pretty good little actor. And I absolutely loved how he was like Gibbs, but they didn't overemphasize it (ala "Doppelganger"). I'm sorry; I'm a sucker for Gibbs-with-kid TV.
Jen -- grr. Don't like her; wish she'd leave and stop distracting Gibbs. "Hubba, hubba"? Come on! Sounds more like Tony than Gibbs.
Chip -- I don't know. He's creepy and annoying, yes, but the characters see that and don't like him either. He's a neutral for me.
9.5 for me.
If you think you’re a hypochondriac, either you’re right and you are or it’s just your imagination -- and you are.
I gave this one an 8.5 - 1 for the kid too...not much of a kid person. - .5 for Chip...still creepy, even w/out the stach!!!
Loved the scene at the end w/Gibbs & the lil girl though...made me wanna cry too! I'm sooooo glad they got McGee back in the lab again!! Loving the brothers/sister thing going on w/Tony, Ziva, & McGee. Not enough of Ducky & Abby in this one though. Sorry all, but I like Jen...and she did look hot in the basement.
I gave it a 9.5. I thought it was great ep but didn't like the flirting with Jen. As for Chip, I don't think that they should be mean to him like that, and it might come back to haunt them because in this coming week's TV Guide it says that Jenny Shepard may have made an error when she hired Chip and that "someone is going to be in trouble because of him" and that "he really had me duped".

Gibbs: The only reason you can still walk is because I didn't find out about you until today.
