'NCIS' recap: Not-so-simple explanations

There were sort of two cases being investigated in tonight’s episode of NCIS. The first was a hit-and-run case and the other was a murder that was, unbeknownst to NCIS, committed by the suspect in the hit-and-run and also the suspect’s alibi.

The problem was that the suspect, a guy named Dunne, obviously, didn’t want to tell NCIS that another murder was his alibi. So while his lawyer (Salli Richardson-Whitfield), a former FBI agent, could clear him in the hit-and-run, she also didn’t want him to get away on the other murder. (She was bound by attorney-client privilege and could not tell them the whole truth.) So she helped clue-in the team at NCIS that something wasn’t right in her client’s story. READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' recap: 'He's the best person I know'

Who didn’t get a little misty-eyed during tonight’s NCIS?

If you raised your hand, you have no soul. Kidding. (I think.) But everyone had to have been at least moved by the episode that found Gibbs worrying about his aging father while the team worked the case of a murdered marine sergeant named Michael Dawson, who appeared to have been killed during a robbery at a men’s suit shop.

'NCIS' recap: New tricks

Someone was up to no good on tonight’s NCIS — and for once, it wasn’t Tony DiNozzo!

But we’ll get to that.

First: This week’s case involved an explosion on board an oil rig, which meant that NCIS had to partner with the Coast Guard Investigative Service (CGIS) and we got a visit from Agent Borin (Diane Neal) — AKA, Female Gibbs.

'NCIS' recap: 'No one will say her name'

We’re now on the third Ziva-less episode of the season here on NCIS, but for Tony, the wound of his partner’s departure is as fresh as if it had happened hours ago. And tonight’s episode gave us a glimpse into exactly how he’s been dealing with the loss. Hint: Not well.

But of course, this is Tony DiNozzo and he’s not just going to come right out and say that. Instead, we carried on with a case that illuminated the real issue at hand and also reunited Tony with a person from his Baltimore days, named Anton.

Anton’s story was a complicated one but it boils down to: He was once an informant for Tony but when he feared his life was in danger, he killed the man who he thought was going to tell others that he’d been working with the police. Years after being in the wind, he resurfaced on the day an officer named Wells, who had a high-level security clearance, turned up dead. Of course, this made him suspect No. 1. READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' recap: Standing up to bullies

Gibbs secured his spot atop every list of TV’s Greatest Badasses on Tuesday night’s NCIS by confronting an angry mob of men with nothing more than his fists.

But what made his bravery even more exceptional was that there was much more to it, and that he saw it not as bravery but penance. READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' recap: The show without Ziva? #thiscouldworkboss

How did the NCIS team handle life after Ziva David’s big departure? Well, honestly, how anyone would handle the departure of a co-worker and friend.

They mentioned her. They were thinking of her. They got territorial when someone tried to sit at her desk. But, ultimately, life went on. (As ours must, I suppose.) READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' recap: Ziva says goodbye

We’ve had big losses on NCIS before — like when Kate was shot by Ari , or when Jenny Sheperd died at the end of season 5, or when Ziva’s dad and Jackie Vance were killed in a drive-by shooting. So when we learned that Ziva (Cote de Pablo) was going to make an exit this season, I was terrified for her. But her exit not only — as we were promised — left Ziva in one piece, it left room for a return.

That said, this was a hard episode to watch because it was like an emotional bullet to the heart.  READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' season premiere recap: Ready, set...

Warning: If you haven’t watched the 11th season premiere of NCIS yet, do NOT read on…

Tonight’s NCIS laid the ground work for the much touted Farewell to Ziva, and while the necessary story set-up resulted in less in-person appearances from Ziva (none, to be exact), it’s easy to see why it needed to be done. (As you may have heard a million times over since July, Cote de Pablo is leaving the series.) More info coming soon in a detailed recap. But meanwhile, here are some highlights  Details, ahoy!: READ FULL STORY
