Really? Didn't expect her to be dead so soon.

Nonononono, don't say 48h earlier, don't say 48h earlier, don't say... Et merde. I hate this trick. Maybe seeing it used so often in so many show practically in the same time helped making it worse, but I hate it.

We're not stupid, we can catch the story in the middle. Moreover, it already tell us than Gabriella is alive, because this trick is used to make us believe they're going to show how they failed to save her. Except, they'll never do it. They would not take the depressing way.

So it's someone else, and I hope they didn't think not showing Ziva would make us doubt.

Smooth ride?
Till somebody started shooting at us.
It's Kabul's welcome wagon.
Next time, bake cookies.

Ah, McGee, I love the smell of coeds in the morning.
You need coffee, Tony. So do I. Working on Afghan time is messing up our internal clocks.
I used to thrive on all-night stakeouts and sub-zero surveillance.
Maybe this is a sign something's missing from my life.
Like what, frostbite?


So nice the way he looks at Tim when talking of something missing in his life, and then the 'caught in headlight' look when Tim watched him. Really nice.

I hate libraries.
Another one of your fears?
Don't mock me.
What's to hate about libraries?
The smell gets me every time.
Yeah? What does a library smell like?
Lonely smart people.


Tony is so busy laughing and waiting for Tim's reaction he forgot to look where he's going. I understand, the view is better, but there's still work to do.

Also, I'd like to point the way the distance between them keep shrinking while they're walking until they're touching each other :D.

*laughs* They kept their coffee as long as possible.

Why it's always innocent children? They checked? "So, we have three innocent children, no, this one doesn't count, he stole Julie's juice yesterday. And this one laughed a bit too much when the bird hit the window."

Aww, Tony went and got his favorite new coffee machine. Someone didn't keep him away.

Gibbs, you're starting to look like JD with your flashback face.

I don't understand why Ziva is smiling and then looked shocked. She was warned the girls were tortured. At the beginning of the episode.

The actress playing the oldest doesn't stop smiling. It's kind of cute. And Ziva is adorable in this scene, but how the girls have difficulty finding the good words in English and yet understand Ziva's questions? When she can actually talk their language?

Probably a case of 'the viewer won't bother reading the subtitles'. But still, they could have Ziva do the back and forth. Way faster for the girls to use their words instead of the translation.

But then, it would be up to the little actresses to say their lines in another language…

You know, I actually took a college class in fossil fuels.
Of course you did.


But the audience didn't, so don't spoil my lines.

It's like GG kept in mind the complains about Faith and the christian being the killer when he wrote that. I think the deal Tony's talking was made a long time ago, maybe around Baltimore. Maybe even before, or it was about this kid he almost lost then.

Ah, here's who's in the coffin.

Damn, Gabriella is awesome.

Photobucket

… Where's the scene of the two bonding? The one in the beginning when she said she knew this life?

Wow, Cadman, you're small!

Oh well, if it worked with Alejandro… It's always the little brother.

Do something fun.
Fun?
Yeah. Fun. Rest. Recreate. Fish. Build something. I-- Whatever you do.


"What is this fun thing you're talking about? Is it something like the do nothing Mike used to talk about?"

That…doesn't make any sense. At first, I thought one of the kid was his.
This thing started seriously, moved into funny/serious with the bucket list, then became serious again and it end with the kids?

It doesn't fit. At all. Or it's serious, or it's a joke. It's like GG changed his mind at the last moment, or rewrote something. Personally, I'm going to assume Tony simply gave one thing which bother him (never at ease with kids under 16) to hide something bigger.

He's good at that, after all. Just look his face before he joins the kids, does he look like someone who faced something scaring? Or like something deeper than that?

See, GG has good ideas, but doesn't know how to create them seamlessly. His plot are disjointed, he doesn't know how to logically link everything. That's why Nature of the Beast was better done, the back and forth between present and past allowed enough liberty, no need for tight connection. Same for A Man Walk Into a Bar…, the memories of Kate were the connections. It helped to hide the plotholes.

Maybe nobody really review his scripts because he's the boss. It's too bad, so much could be easily fixed with some edit here and there, without changing the plot and his plans. (More scenes between Quincy and Ziva, reduce the numbers of flashbacks, get rid of the damn 48h before, don't have Tony face his fear, only talk to Cadman and use the whole thing of 'I could die tomorrow and my life is not where I wanted it to be.')

By the way, did they explain the missing knife? If I didn't miss the explanation and it stays without answer, I'll put this mention with the missing glasses of last year, hinting of P2P coming inside NCIS two or three episode before they knew it.

My theory with the kids thing was that it was supposed to be a juxtaposition between the first part, with the visible reminder of death and the start of new life with the kids. I agree that it's still pretty awkward and out of left field, but it at least makes a thematic tie.
