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.
