NCIS: “Dead Reflection”Posted: April 13, 2011
This episode of NCIS did a good job of carrying over everything that happened in last week’s episode. Gibbs’ (Mark Harmon) team have passed the Port-to-Port killer case onto Special Agent E.J. Barrett (Sarah Jane Morris) and the two members of her team that were introduced in this episode.
Gibbs and his team spend this episode trying to catch a killer that was caught on camera, murdering a someone in the Pentagon. While solving that case they run into mistaken identities, a second body, classified files, the CIA and silicon masks of people’s faces. The team successfully catches the killer and Ziva (Cote de Pablo) gets to beat up a bad guy, so overall it was a good episode from the murder-solving stand point.
From the relationship stand point, it was also very good. Ziva has ended her relationship with Ray (Enrique Murciano), but Tony (Michael Weatherly) is still sleeping with E.J. They have two scenes in which they talk about their relationships. Ziva warns Tony about what Gibbs is going to say if he finds out about E.J. But, of course, Gibbs already knows and gets in a fight with Tony about it later. Tony seems like he is considering ending it with E.J., mostly from the advice of obviously jealous Ziva. And speaking of jealousy, Abby (Pauley Perrette) goes on date with Agent Simon Cade, played by Matthew Willig, of E.J. teams and later calls out McGee (Sean Murray) for being jealous.
The episode ended on a cliffhanger again, since the eye that was found in Tony’s drink opens MTAK. I’m assuming the show is loading up on a serial killer and relationship craziness because something big is going to happen in the remaining three episodes of the season. If it follows the course of the last couple episode, I think it will be pretty good.
