Most of the footage with Agent Todd used the original dialog. With the exception being the scene where Kate is talking to Rachel. The actual footage is from 1.19, Dead Man Talking, when Kate is talking to "Duane". See more »

Special Agent Jethro Gibbs: [with Dr. Cranston in his basement] Stand right here. Right there. Look down. You feel that? Right there?
Dr. Rachel Cranston: What?
Special Agent Jethro Gibbs: This is where the guy who murdered Kate died. This is where Ziva shot her own brother. That, doc, is closure.

amazing episode
8 March 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

with the psych evaluation going on at the same time as the investigation continues for the killer of the dead naval officer, the episode just gets more interesting by the minute. the episode mostly involves footage of the first 2 seasons of the show when agent Caitlin Todd(Sasha Alexander)was around. while going through the psych evaluation each member of the team realizes how much they miss and how they felt about agent Todd when she was around. the story was really well written. it was really good seeing Sasha Alexander back on the show even though it was archive footage. for anyone who is like me and have missed Sasha Alexander on the show since she left in 2005 this is really an interesting and eye tearing episode. this episode really does deserve 10/10.
