Storyline

In Los Angeles, Jenny, with Tony and Ziva as a protective detail, attends the funeral for a retired long-time special agent, who supposedly died of a heart attack; Jenny hears a name, sees a man, makes pictures, and summons Mike Franks from Mexico; she tells him that she's the next person to die. Jen and Franks visit the home of the dead man; there they meet his girlfriend, whom they send to Nevada, but who winds up dead in Santa Monica. Jen and Franks check out an insurance policy at a diner in a desert, and she refuses help from Tony and Ziva; Franks steps outside in the back, then four men enter the diner, and gunshots ring out; Tony and Ziva find a mess inside.

This is great television!
26 March 2010 | by (tatter1) – See all my reviews

I found NCIS late - 6 years into its run - while watching reruns on cable. It is not the perfect way to watch a show that connects episodes together as sometime the episodes are out of sequence and seasons are mixed with other seasons.

With that said, Judgement Day episodes 1 and 2 were run back to back and are among the most enjoyable episodes of any series I have ever watched. I had watched long enough to know all the characters at this point so I was invested in their relationships and loved their idiosyncrasies.

So to see the death of a major character, the details related to that death (and the possible reasons for this character putting themselves into this situation) and the richness of the characters surrounding the storyline was just fascinating to watch. The writing is spare and clean. The emotions and reactions to the twists and turns in these episodes are genuinely felt.

Gibbs discovery that a person close to him in NCIS has done something against all he believes followed by the death mentioned above followed by the grieving (or not in Gibb's case) followed by the ending that seems to bring our group of characters to dissolution makes you want to come back for more.
