Why can't two physical specimens be in the same room?
6 December 2016 | by Jon_Snow_21See all my reviews

This episode was pretty fresh, I must say. First of all the case was not bad but I feel like it could've been a lot better. There were far too many suspects involved and even though I didn't guess the killer until the end it was weak because there were too many suspects. Another problem was that I failed to feel that the congresswoman was in any danger. Also, please stop doing those "accidental deaths" cases, because they aren't interesting. We want to see NCIS take down serial killers and dangerous terrorists, not accidental murderers.

Luckily Gibbs was not bad in this episode. I really feel like he should get more involved because he kind of just tells his team what to do unlike previous seasons where he participates more. I know it must be to show off the new characters but believe me you guys are doing enough of that (in a good way).

Torres and reeves absolutely stole the show. Their "bromance" is awesome and they're just really awesome characters who I look forward to seeing more scenes of. I remember saying that they were cementing the "new" NCIS legacy and this episode totally defends that point. Now they have to interact more with Gibbs and it will be perfect. It's awesome that Clay is joining the team and it will be awesome to see more of him but they better not kill him off with those "suicide missions"

Bishop, McGee, Duck and Palmer were fine. Quinn was her usual lame self. Another character that stood out in this episode was Vance. Vance was really good in this episode but please don't make him have a mellow dramatic relationship with Flemmings.

All in all, this episode was worthwhile because of Torres and Reeves but there were still a lot of issues. Gibbs needs to participate more, he's not being used to his full potential and we need stronger cases with serial killers and dangerous terrorists.
