Ziva's curly hair is back and she looks amazing.
As they go up to the victim's house:
a) Tony wants McGee.
b) There's then a fair amount of Gibbs/DiNozzo banter. In which Gibbs 'casually' mentions red roses. Whut?
I choose to believe this actress who reminds me of Anne Dudek is playing the exact same character here as she did in White Collar. And so far, this appears to be the case.
As much as I know she'll pull it out in the end, I kind of like an imperfect Abby.
Timmy's smirk is adorable.
OMG. LACEY. LACEY FROM CORNER GAS. I. I. WHAT? I bet she's the killer.
... this has so far been an unremarkable episode. What is it with the NCIS writers' obsession with finding dopplegangers for their characters? I do not think Auburn-Dudek is anything like Gibbs. I do like her, though. IMDb tells me her name is Diane Neal.
Crowbarred Tony/Ziva = totally unnecessary. (I am a hypocrite. If that had been Tim I would have been all "WOO, YEAH". And I guess it was pretty sweet.)
That was a lacklustre 45 minutes.
