Storyline

While responding to an anonymous tip about an alleged terrorist plan, an explosion kills two members of Agent Paula Cassidy's team (attached to the DoD at the Pentagon) and injures her; Gibbs and company investigate; feelings and emotions run high. Both Ducky and Abby produce answers, then Ducky raises more questions; Abby finds it hard to imagine that Ducky may be wrong about something. Paula advises Tony on an important matter. The gang do more analytic work, then McGee finds a clever new program, which helps to explain how both Ducky and Abby are right. Gibbs, Tony, Ziva, and Paula attend a memorial service, and Paula takes a major step. Later Tony speaks with Jeanne. Written by DocRushing

You Got Me
15 August 2007 | by drew-121See all my reviews

This is a great series, the acting is spot on, the chemistry between the characters is super and I would be hard pressed to ever knock the story. But this week, this episode - you got me! I wont give away the ending but I was speechless - fantastic episode and really underlining just why NCIS keeps rolling along.

As this season moves towards its climax, I hope the powers that be will be thinking about the next series and making sure that the quality of the writing and directing stays top notch - because NCIS deserves to run and run.

This episode alone has made me want to buy the box set of all back episodes and sit through them all again.
