I've given up waiting for my bloody local stations or my cabel network to continue showing NCIS.
But anyways, I have the eps now and I'm not that far behind anymore *pats herself on the back*
Kill Ari (2) was a let down, I expected more of a "oomph" out of going after Ari and killing him. IMHO, Ari saying that his father had created him into a monster was kinda OOC. I never thought Ari would call himself a monster, the guy's got too much of pride to call himself something so- plain.
The one thing they did well was Kate's funeral. It was really touching and wasn't cheesy the least bit.
I'm joining the 'not-so-in-favour-of-Jenny Sheppard' group.
I learned one thing from this ep though, that most of American cars are automatics. ;D
I like Jenn less than I did in part one, and I like Ziva more. Which means that they've both evened out to me being pretty neutral about them. (Although Lauren Holly just bugs. Probably more due to other things I've seen her in than anything she's done here.)
Did any one else think that Lauren Holly's voice sounded weird - like she had a plate in her mouth that didn't fit properly?
Wouldn't know, I was trying to ignore her most of the time.
No, but seriously, I think she sounded weird too. Like the way she says "Jethro." Gives me the jibblies. Then again, I really hate it when anyone calls him Jethro, except maybe Fornell because he has a funny name, too, but I prefer when he calls him Gibbs. Just Gibbs, everybody, ok? Or Boss. Or Silver Haired Fox. Or Sex Machine--oh, wait, thats Tony ;D
I liked this episode and I found it hard to comment too much on the first part before I saw this episode because of the issue of loose ends. I like Ziva and I think that it would be unfair of me not to give her a chance beause me not liking her won't bring Kate back. I like Ziva's confidence in herself. I also hope that she is given an opportunity to be developed as a character without it being overly shippy as I thought it was a bit much with Kate last season. I did like Abby and McGee's hug because it was lighter moment and it was in character for both of them. I also have to mention Tony's pool scene. I also liked how Kate's funeral was handled because, it was simple and everyone was in character there. I also liked seeing Gerald again and I thought that after seeing him again that Jimmy is a bit awkward.
After watching the whole of series 3, going back to the beginning has made more sense, things that I had missed the first time round, or forgotten, or not picked up where things might lead.
I love Ducky's ring tone, it seems very fitting, lol.
Also when Gibbs was speaking to Ziva in Abby's lab, after he had shooed everyone else out to have a private word. He said to Ziva about her finding out about his first wife and daughter. I do remember thinking, "Daughter? Gibbs? No way!", when I first heard it, but soon forgot about it. Also for him to mention then that's why a Ari was going after the women in his life, so to speak. It just didn't click first time round. ;D
McGee is a big a pervert as Tony. It's always the quiet ones you hae to look out for.
Jazz at a funeral. Not heard it before NCIS, but I like the idea.
That's why I love NCIS, it never gets old. ;D
I'm not like you guys. You were trained as a cop. Gibbs was a Marine sniper. Kate protected the president of the United States. God only knows what Ziva did with Mossad.
I know it wasn't meant as foreshadowing, but don't you find it amusing that Kate said on Lt. Jane Doe, "One day one of those bodies is going to talk back" and less than a year later, she was the body that "talked" back?
"You don't sound very optimistic. So all these people just die?"

wow i havnt seen that ep where she says that, but that's kinda cool, and i like how she shows up in this ep, like in real life, we imagine conversations, maybe not exactly like in this ep, but something similar, dunno, usu when i do it, it's me who's talking to the other person, and the other person is just.. there.
I have to say that I think they handled Kate's death very classy, very close to the show's core. Most shows don't bother to show the funerals anymore, much less the friend's reactions to the death. It's like 'best friend, girlfriend (whoever) dies, NEXT!'. NCIS didn't do this and, as a Kate fan, I was grateful.
