NCIS Season 10 Premiere

You remember the end of the last season right? Bomb goes off at NCIS, DCucky alone on a beach (at Jimmy’s wedding) having a heart attack. If this isn’t ringing a bell, go here and get caught up. Tuesday night season premieres were marked with humour, intelligence, grit and heart. I’ll start with NCIS and later get to NCIS Los Angeles and Criminal Minds (on its new night).

Ducky can’t die! Did you see that? After years of being a recurring regular, Jimmy (Brian Dietzen) finally got himself into the intro credits. I hope it’s not a foreshadowing of Ducky’s fate.

Now let’s just make sure the team is all ok. Abby and Gibbs are fine (he protected her from the blast) as is Director Vance. And there’s Ziva and Tony, stuck in an elevator but alive and in Tony’s case, with sense of humour intact. McGee is the last member of the team to be accounted for. He seems a little shocky – which is understandable since he has a shard of glass sticking out of his abdomen; hopefully the glass missed everything important.

Gibbs says “He hurt my family.” You do know what happened to the last guy that messed with Gibbs’ family right? I’ll give you a hint: he met with Gibbs’ own version of Extreme Prejudice.

Really FBI? You didn’t think Dearing was too smart to fall for random hot chick wanted to get busy with him because there was a terrorist attack and maybe we’ll all die? That’s a little naive, even if Dearing did take it too far by blowing up the agents. Speaking of naive FBI agents, why does Fornell think it’s over?

You have got to give Dearing credit for pure evil geniusness (no it’s not a word, I just made it up). I am of course referring to Dearing blowing up his brother’s remains so people would think he’s dead. A situation that’ll be remedied by Gibbs before the episode wraps up, you just wait.

And there we have it; a knife is all Gibbs needed to get the job done. The sight of his team, his family is what helps Gibbs sleep after taking one more life. Because men like Gibbs do what’s necessary to protect (or to avenge) the people they love. It really is that simple for him.

Good start to season 10. Let’s hope they can continue to keep it fresh.


Check back later for more reviews of Tuesday night season premieres.
