Storyline

The Virginia SP calls the NCIS about a body wearing the stripes of a captain in the Navy; Gibbs and company investigate; McGee says that the victim is not a captain but rather a seaman; Ducky comments on the seaman's eyes; Duck and Palmer describe the unusual cleanliness of the corpse. The gang track the movements of the apparent killer; Gibbs and Tony visit the victim's pad, where they meet EJ, who has investigated three similar deaths with identical MO. Tony and EJ make peace, but Gibbs and EJ do not. McGee identifies a suspect and finds a local address, so Gibbs invites him to his chat room. However, Gibbs receives from a reliable source that the suspect is not the right man, so the gang reexamine the evidence; then they pursue a different suspect, who turns out to be another victim. Ziva's boyfriend proves to be something else. Gibbs gives EJ an order. While Tony and Ziva talk over drinks, another customer sends her a message. [To be continued.] Written by DocRushing

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.
