Storyline

Tony and Ziva seize an Israeli illicit arms dealer, and he trades them some valuable information. Tony and Ziva tail Harrow, a retired puzzle maker; he spots them, he runs, they pursue, and he collapses and dies with a heart attack. Tony lies to Gibbs about his doing for the director an undercover detail related to the current case; Gibbs digs it. Jen wants to catch the Frog, another dealer, who expects to meet Harrow, but Harrow has died, so the gang disguise Ducky as Harrow, a Brit, and coach him; they send Ducky to make the exchange, and the gang and the director go with him but stay in the background. The exchange takes place, but Jen and the gang do not get the Frog. Written by DocRushing

Goofs

The nation of Zaire is mentioned in this episode. Zaire has not existed since 1997, it is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The writers may not have been aware of this change, or chose to ignore it for clarity that the team was going deep into Africa. See more »

It Blows You Away...
14 September 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

'Blowback' keeps you captivated in the very first few minutes of the episode with curiosity and mixed emotions running through our veins. It's a bearable episode but towards the end, It had to tendency to lose all the elements they had gained throughout the episode.

The beginning, in my opinion, is absolutely brilliant... I loved it and I WILL say it's one of my favorite beginnings. It begins with a black van following a paranoid man who ends up being captured by two people in two black masks who we soon find out to be Ziva David (Cote De Pablo) and Anthony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly). The feeling that our heroic NCIS characters could be possible villains seemed almost enticing, This is supported by the mis-en-scene of a dark van, motion and Ziva wearing a really kick-ass leather jacket.

It continues to hold your attention after the credits with us feeling uncertain and anxious on what exactly was happening. A few jokes are thrown in to incorporate humour and get us laughing. There is a few memorable moments + quote during this scene as well.

So, The scenes I previously mentioned were two of my personal favourites of the episode - besides when they went out to meet La Grenouille. I could say it was a wonderful episode but towards the end, the episode tend to have no real purpose and wasn't going anywhere and the overreaction of Jenny was absurd. Not a memorable episode but definitely pure entertainment. It's definitely worth the watch.
