Towards the end, Gibbs walks into the building where the team was being held captive, just a few seconds after being shown sniping from a hillside more than a mile away. There is no way he could have covered that distance in that short a time, even with a vehicle. See more »

A unique and enjoyable episode.
22 September 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This show is so versatile! I love how they gave this season premiere episode it's own unique voice. (Made all the better in that the 'voice' belonged to -very- Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo.) They left us to hang over the summer hiatus, worrying for Ziva's safety, and this episode manages to extend and increase that worry. But as always, the team pulls together and manages to make things all work out. My one complaint is that there wasn't enough of Abby and Ducky, I know they're meant to be supporting characters, but nevertheless they add such depth and colour to the show. All in all, an excellent premiere episode, I can't wait to see more!
