Storyline

At an automotive recycling yard the body of a Marine corporal shows up in the trunk of a car; while at the scene Gibbs and the gang see that someone has amputated both feet. Ducky in his shop points out several troubling items, and Tony and Ziva find a troubling cargo inside a truck. Abby goes to Mexico to conduct a class, and McGoo goes to protect her; they take the students outside to do some field work, and several locals interfere; Abby makes several discoveries about an old cold case, and she takes action. Meanwhile Gibbs and the others have figured out who killed the previous victims, but not who killed the last one; then Gibbs finds out who killed the Marine. Abby goes to Gibbs's basement and talks with him from her heart. Written by DocRushing

Goofs

While being interrogated by Gibbs, Velvet Road reveals that she is immune to snake venom because she owns 2 pythons and a cobra and has been bitten many times. Pythons are constrictors, killing by coiling around their prey to suffocate it. They don't have venom. See more »

Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: That wasn't nice. Why would you do something like that?
Special Agent Timothy McGee: I don't know. Why would you create a fake online profile last year and make me fall in love with a girl that doesn't exist?
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: [Weak laugh] Can I get back to you on that?

Justifiable Homicide
8 March 2011 | by ttapolaSee all my reviews

The seeds infrequently planted throughout the season finally sprout into a main plot, also marking the beginning of the longest continuous story so far: 4 episodes, the final one being spared for the following season. Structurally, that is pretty ambitious for a mostly-episodic series where there is no pre-planned Babylon 5 style Mytharc and in which character development takes over half a decade.

For the record, NCIS is usually great entertainment, but rarely merits more than 8/10.

The Burning Question of Tony and Ziva's stories of their night in Paris is neatly brought up again. It's also nice that we are shown how neither Tony nor Ziva do not mind the other being almost cheek to cheek with them when peering at a monitor screen over their shoulder. A nice nod to long-time fans is the mention a certain event in Abby and McGee's history. McGee's jealousy over Abby is also great. The fact that the actual case of the week is one of the most gruesome in NCIS history works great with the ominous atmosphere created by the arc plot. And then there is a nice surprise, after which comes the first episode-ending cliffhanger. A wrenching cliffhanger. Great start, 8/10.
