While nothing special, this is a solid episode. The show-runners have now established that Gibbs did indeed start a relationship with Rena Sofer's lawyer woman (I am *really* bad with names), but there is still plenty of teasing left regarding the undisclosed status of Ziva and Tony's relationship. Their private scene together is just so full of dialog fueling the speculation, it might make the weaker fans climbing the walls in desperation because of the lack of definite answers. One just hopes the show-runners don't intend to keep this up well into the next season. A reveal in the season ender would be just right, a "Thank You" for the audience.

With all the seriousness of recent episodes, the NCIS - CGIS mirroring that is played for amusement is a welcome incident. The CGIS "counterparts" of Gibbs, Tony, McGee, Abby and Ziva are a lot of fun, even if only the boss woman is given proper screen time. The looks on the faces of Tony, McGee and Ziva when they realize there is a female version of Gibbs is priceless. Another great scene is Abby's meltdown with the laptop. It's been too long since Abby had a comedy standout scene. The "Abby²" scene and the Cof-Pow conspiracy are pretty funny too. And the Ducky - Gibbs straight-faced relationship discussion is absolutely hilarious.

Again, the character moments overshadow the plot, leaving us with another 7/10 overall, but who's complaining when the character moments are so good? After all, didn't someone say all the stories in the world have already been told and we are only left with variations of them?
