Storyline

Two civilians find the body of a Navy petty officer first-class, submerged in a backyard hot tub; Gibbs and company investigate; Ducky sees an unusual clue. The widow fills in Tony and Ziva, and Abby makes a significant discovery, implicating a ship of the Royal Navy. Gibbs takes a strong dislike to a major in the Royal Marines; however, Ziva asks the major to "do a quickie". Tony and Ziva find an important valve handwheel, and Gibbs gains an advantage by using a pipe wrench. The ship leaves port, but the major stays behind, and the major turns out to be something else, as does a special agent of the CIA. Vance tells Gibbs to cool it; Gibbs takes a different tack, and he finds a visitor when he returns home. The gang trace missing money; they figure out who killed the sailor, and who stole the money, then they nab the person responsible. Tony sets off an alarm. Written by DocRushing

29 March 2011 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Well, well... once again, we are reminded of the One Night in Paris, a mystery since 26 January 2010 (Season 7, Episode 13). That is 37 weeks, or 8½ months, earlier. Or 16 weeks, if you live in Finland. In any case, that particular mystery is dragging way too long. So much so, that now that the night and its consequences are given several minutes of screen time instead of a quick aside, it serves only to distract the viewers from the main plot.

All that makes NCIS quality entertainment is present, except for this imbalance. Even with the main plot involving the Brits, which would normally make this episode stand out as fresh, it cannot compete with the "Tiva" relationship issues. This would not be bad if the audience were rewarded with something, anything, but alas, not so. It's likely to frustrate the fans, whose patience the show-runners are now testing to the breaking point. For crying out loud, either stay completely episodic like some relic from the 1980s (remember, the 1990s gave us Babylon 5) or develop the character interaction like a 2010s show should!
