2015 Mar 31 NCIS Critique of “Patience”

We know that as we type this critique, most NCIS fans are glued to the TV watching Cote de Pablo in the ‘Dove Keepers.’ You will remember that last week we offered to send a copy of our most recent novel, “Embers of Courage,” to one of you who responded to our post. The drawing winner is Sandra L. If she will respond to us with her mailing address, we will mail her the copy. Meanwhile each of the others who responded, will receive an eBook copy of “Hero’s Ransom.” Watch your email for your coupon redeemable at iTunes.com.

Tonight’s NCIS episode of “Patience,” turned out to be better than some recent shows. The banter between Di Nozzo and McGee was good, as McGee discovers that Di Nozzo and Gibbs had been involved in a decades old case involving an airport bombing, to McGee’s exclusion. As the investigation of a new lead in that bombing continues, McGee and Abby are flown to an aircraft carrier off the coast of Colombia in search of a computer link to a Colombian drug lord. At the same time, Tony and Bishop attend what turns out to be a class to promote intimacy while posing as husband and wife to learn more about the Colombian doctor who offered the training. It provided interesting insights for the “couple”, and an opportunity for Bishop to have a deeper role. We enjoyed seeing Ducky with a key role in solving the case. Mark Harmon, playing Leroy Jethro Gibbs, interrogates a possible suspect, which leads to a second interrogation with surprising twists toward the end. All in all, the viewer feels satisfied with the outcome.

The preview for next week’s ‘heart to heart’ episode, “No Good Deed” includes the return of Robert Wagner as Di Nozzo Senior. The producers seem to know when they’ve discovered a good thing. At least we hope so!

Be Blessed, Diane and David Munson

    I don’t get McGee’s anger over need-to-know information.

    Finally an episode that didn’t have us cringing a few times (at least, not any more than Gibbs and the director were cringing). This was definitely one of the better episodes this season.

    And if you think the writers have lost it just wait. I just read on another site that Gibbs and Bishop are going to Afghanistan in an upcoming episode. She can’t fight, shoot, or defend herself or speak any foreign language. It just get worse.

      We believe John’s information to be correct. Could Gibbs’ taking Bishop to Afghanistan be a plot to get her off the show? If so, their ratings could only go up.

        Why would Bishop be allowed to go to Afghanistan and not Russia?

          Maybe they are permitting Bishop to go this time because she is:
          (1) More experienced now
          (2) Accompanied by Gibbs
          or (3) Because they are getting ready to write her out of the series
