Storyline

On a sidewalk in Washington, DC, Tony and McGee bust a 22-year-old chick, who turns out to be an electronic pickpocket, who causes the gang to search for a terrorist, who proves to be a pair of Mossad operatives, Liat and Malachi; meanwhile the US Coast Guard sends three bodies and other evidence after fireworks during an encounter with a small civilian craft in the Gulf of Mexico. While investigating both chains of events, Gibbs soon sees a connection between the two threads; Gibbs also accepts an invitation to meet with Eli David, Ziva's father and the head of the Mossad, who explains more. One night Gibbs and Eli take a walk downtown with friends and others nearby. During those events Vance has conducted a conference at a hotel; the next day Eli starts toward the meeting with a protective detail; however, a major multi-faceted confrontation takes place; Ziva sends Eli back to the safe house, then Gibbs loses radio contact with Eli's party.

Shadows in the Light
12 May 2011 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

One third into the season means that if the show-runners are doing their job properly, one can expect something significant. And the show-runners of NCIS know how to do their job properly. The plot practically goes onto untrodden territory while simultaneously putting focus on *multiple* long-running plot arcs that go as far as two and a half years back. Naturally, this also means numerous recurring characters appearing together, while still leaving room to introduce a new character - and what a character! To reveal more would constitute a spoiler.

When dealing with this kind of a significant episode there is always the danger of putting in too many ingredients, resulting in a mess, especially if the show is already on its 8th season. A decade earlier most shows didn't even make it this far, and if they did, tended to resort to gimmickry (musicals, live airings, returning ex-regulars, Special Guest Directors, you name it). Not this one. The thrilling plot is complex yet not convoluted (cough! - The X Files - cough!), there is both great action and meaningful character development, plus, most importantly, surprises. Any show that is able to surprise in its 8th season is a worthy show indeed. That said, while this one achieves greatness, greatness is still "only" 8/10. There has been, and no doubt, will be, even greater, truly *magnificent* episodes in this series.
