Did You Know?


The phone that is handed to Bishop during the meet with the kidnapper is a Samsung Gusto, an entry-level flip phone for prepaid accounts. It was replaced by the Samsung Gusto 2 in spring of 2012, indicating that the kidnapper stocks his burner phones well in advance. See more »


Early on Gibbs and Fornell are sitting in Fornell's parked car, a car with headlights on moves round them. The lit headlights are visible behind the parked car, through the rear window. Next shot should show the other car passing as the parked car is next to the curb and Fornell is behind the driver's wheel, and Fornell is the next shot, looking out on to the street. See more »

Sucky soap opera
11 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whoever wrote this "Devil's Triad" must have been longing for the soap operas of old...who really gives a crap about Fornell and his ex and their ludicrous sexual exploits, certainly not Gibbs. The writer had to contrive some sappy story about Fornell's daughter...what a waste of talent and time. All actors seemed to be just going thru the motions for this campy piece of fluff, supposedly showing off the "new girl's" talent and penchant for going "outside the box", even telling Gibbs his idea was bad...must be a rule # for that one somewhere, Tony. Whatever happened to a good storyline that actually showed some believable action and investigative work? It certainly didn't show up here. :p
