Storyline

Navy Seaman Derek Balfour was murdered in a port, the fourth following an apparent pattern, so the director gives the lead to NCIS Special Agent Erica Jane 'EJ' Barrett, who already investigates the earlier three. Ziva's CIA lover Ray Cruz assures her informally that Barrett's suspect Bryce Leitner, under another investigation, must be innocent of Balfour's murder. Written by KGF Vissers

Killing Spree
12 October 2011 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

This is a great episode. Not only is the plot good, seeing as it starts up what seems to be another multi-episode-arc like the one that ended season 7 and started season 8, but it also has great character moments, especially considering how much great material the usually acting-starved Mark Harmon gets as Gibbs who finally gets to show more of his character. The return of Special Agent Barrett in itself does not particularly excite, but her clashes with Gibbs are what makes this episode stand out.

Ziva's "boyfriend" Ray, first alluded to in the season opener, the 163rd episode, while this is the 182nd, fails to impress after such a long wait. Especially when Ziva then breaks up with him. ("Hurrah!" for Team Tiva!). One cannot but help wonder if the *only* purpose of this 20-episode character "arc" (in the loosest sense of the word) was to waste another season avoiding the question what happened between Tony and Ziva in Paris in the 151th episode. That was 31 episodes ago! Will it *ever* be revealed? Will the writers ever man up and pair Tony and Ziva up? Especially now that Tony has proved with Barrett that he is willing to break Rule #12.

Tiva-niggles aside, the creepy surprise end reveal comes totally out of the blue and makes one want to see the next episode ASAP. 8/10 greatness achieved.
