One of the most fast pacing and unexpected finale i ever watched
26 December 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

One of my favourite NCIS eps ever.

Enjoyed how each character is incorporated to a dangerous situation to keep the audience guessing. From tony with the car bomb, Gibbs with the cafe bomb, Gibbs with his throat slitted and Kate taking the bullet for Gibbs saving his life etc. Never a dull moment. The little quirks and bickering between Kate and Tony are always fun.

The last 5-10 mins of the episode is the most unexpected and shocking, being a huge fan of Kate it was devastating to see her go after being attached to a character. But this is due to because Sasha wanted to pursue her personal life more. Sometimes endings are predictable but this is definitely one no one would ever guessed.
