A distracted teenage driver in Norfolk hits a stumbling Navy lieutenant just after someone stabbed him in the back; Gibbs and company investigate. Tony and McGee find the site of the knifing, at a nearby motel room, where local cops are already present. The wife of the victim say that he had met a prostitute in connection with his work as a Navy newspaper reporter. Abby determines whom he met, but the gang have trouble in finding her, so Gibbs seeks help from Holly Snow, a former madam in Washington, who puts them in touch, then Gibbs and McGee chat with her. Three previous murders in Norfolk fit the same pattern, then another pops up. One lead does not work out, but new action attracts attention, and Gibbs finds the bad guy. Gibbs and Holly share a steak dinner without expectations. Written by DocRushing

For You
19 January 2011 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Guilty pleasure indeed. Dramatically speaking a light-weight episode, the emphasis being on humor. DiNozzo replacing McGee with McCadden - hilarious! Abby meeting Madame Snow - also hilarious. Snow showing interest in Gibbs when Allison is conveniently nowhere to be seen - the man is a woman magnet (one could hardly refer to Dina Meyer and Rena Sofer as "chicks")! All that is missing is a wrestling match between the two women.

The Tony - Ziva mystery has been ignored ever since #7.15 and that is becoming irritating now. Everything seems to be not-even-remotely-subtly contradicting the theory that they grew closer in Paris (in #7.13). If the whole thing is buried by the show-runners, why bother in the first place? Well, the season is not over yet... This one, however funny, is hardly stellar, just a solid, reliable, well-made 7/10. It is enough.
