An interesting title for the #299 episode, wonders if it could be a team get together.

A little more info:

Quote:
In the upcoming 299th episode (!), fans will get some insight into the team’s lives after hours — also the title of the episode — as they work to solve a case that seemed cut and dry, but really makes Gibbs’ and everyone else’s gut churn. This does not bode well for DiNozzo, whose date starts to unravel as he begins to focus more on the case than his companion. While Abby is off collecting evidence in her PJs, we’ll also see McGee and Delilah (the returning Margo Harshman) at home as McGee recreates a crime scene out of their dinner. Bon appétit!

Sounds intriguing! Also, I kind of love the idea of Abby doing evidence collection in her pjs... that's a very fun/cute image.

According to Scott Williams's Twitter, this episode was written by freelancer, Cindi Hemingway. We'll also apparently get to see Tony's piano skills as well. :)

Interesting, I'll have to see what else Hemingway may have written (I'm assuming this is her first NCIS episode, but she may have done other TV shows). And I look forward to Tony tickling the ivories!

Did I miss something happen with Tony and Zoe?? I haven't seen any of this season yet, so I'm really behind.

Thanks, Phoenix... Poor Tony. :( I was hoping he'd found a good relationship. I really have to go and catch up now.

Tony has become that guy who is Inexplicably Perpetually Single. Everybody knows at least one.
Is he just unlucky? Or is he in the closet?

Difficult questions.

We don't really know why he and Zoe didn't work out though.

Oh, I think we might ... If last night's teaser is to be believed, the Fates (aka the writers) needed to get Zoe out of the way so the Tadpole can slip back into Tony's life...

I think the tadpole reference is that a tadpole is the baby of a frog... and her father was La Grenouille ('the Frog' in French). Took me a while to make the connection b/c there's nothing about her that reminds me of a tadpole. And of course tadpole has an unfortunate potentially gay reference...

I didn't actually know tadpole had a gay reference. I also hadn't picked up on the La Grenouiile connection, and now I feel like a right berk :rofl:

Sorry – "the Tadpole" was a pretty common ( and usually negative )reference back the first time she was around. I used it less because of the negativity, more because I think it's funny. ;D And I didn't know of any gay reference with it. In this case, it certainly doesn't apply - at least, not in canon.

I have to say, I'm really excited about this episode (and not just because Delilah is back). It's something a bit different, at least in the set-up.

The powers that be, Pat. :)

And nobody else has commented on this episode except Shy's comment, but I thought it was fun. I didn't have much to say during it last night because I was dealing with a headache that was taking all my focus, but I'm feeling better this morning (thank GOD - seriously, being sick for two weeks is less than fun and I'm glad to be feeling like a functional human being again :P). I really enjoyed McGee being a huge dork. ;D And Ellie ordering the entire menu at the diner. :lol2:

Well, that's nothing compared to everything else i've been dealing with - some sort of chest infection, nasty cough, and I hurt my ribs coughing, so i'm dealing with that pain, too. Ugh.

No, it really isn't. I feel like half the person I normally am. :P Now I understand how chronically ill people feel to some extent and I do not know how people do it.

For the record: that was not self defense. Not even close.

This wins the all-time runner up award for the show for 'wrongest' attempt to use a legal concept to let a suspect skate ... :P

I'm surprised Gibbs even bothered coming up with an "explanation." It all seems very... unethical.
Actually, when you think about it, it's all sorts of messed up. What kind of precedent does this set?
Ugh. Damn you, Shy. Now I'm thinking about it too much.
(Maybe we need Colin Hanks to come back and shake things up.)


Anyway, despite that, I found this one entertaining. I liked the unique way they set it up, with everybody's evening plans being disrupted. It let us break away from the usual plot set-up. I adored the McLilah dinner, even if Delilah got pissy (yet again.) But I'll give her a pass, because I like her. Also, I thought it was hilarious when McGee ate that shrimp while looking like a dog that's just been beat with a newspaper... Shame, McGee! Shame!

I found Tony awfully creepy during his date. And desperate. Really desperate. And what's with all the lying and manipulating? Does he really have to try that hard to get someone to sleep with him, or even like him? :-/ Concerning.

It did get some cheap laughs. (BONUS points that the dog in the picture was a German shepherd dog. :nice: Couldn't tell if it was one of Weatherly's. (He has two.)) Also... LOL dirty dishes? Throw them in the pantry!

As soon as Tony brought up the case, though, his face just lit up. He was being himself, and I liked that. ;D

(Retcon moment: Tony has said in the past that he never brings dates home because his home is his "sanctuary.")

I find it amusing that when you say McGee looking like a dog who just got bopped on the nose win a newspaper, I know exactly the expression you mean!

Sherry: you'd be amazed what you can get used to when you don't have an alternative. Humans are resilient creatures. Sorry your health has been so off, look after yourself :hug2col:

This episode struck me as a good, fresh idea for a script that fell flat in the rendering. The idea of having a case bug them after hours, a bit differently for each, even having them all pop up at the scene, was clever. Tim's version worked -- Delilah added a factor unknown to them that day and that got Tim thinking things though from there. I'm willing to pretend they didn't have time to get to all those details yet so her outside info worked. However -- the other things that bothered people would seem to be things that they would have caught in the first hour or so: his marksmanship ribbons were there from the first, for example. I would have enjoyed this set up if they'd taken a bit more time and given the others sufficiently delayed or new information that didn't mean they just overlooked the obvious to start.

I also liked the idea of showing each team member's after hours life, but the rendition of it ... eh, again, I think Tim won because they had a chance to bring in Delilah, and we got to see the ol' dinner at home time =D . Love their download dinner idea! while a date with Tony is pretty predictable, it could have been fun, but as to the finer points of what they gave us for him, just cut & paste Chelsea's observations here.

As for the Big Finish -- it completely paralleled "Mother's Day" in that they set up a particular set of circumstances that were relatively interesting, and wanted a legal trap door to allow the perp to escape -- but instead of talking with someone who actually does legal stuff for a living (which in both cases could have resulted in a legitimate and almost-as-good-a-loophole-that-actually-could-work) they just slapped down a catch phrase and walked away, without at least trying a reasonable ending.

They really, really could be better than this.

I loved this episode, like really loved it. The whole selfdefence thing was a bit weak, but i really enjoyed the set up.

Tim and Delilah at home was nice, they are making a real effort to make their relationship work and keep work stuff at work. The voice controlled lightswitch made me laugh. Also, the dinner crimescene. All though two hours of work? She is not a quick cook.

The whole thing with Tony felt a bit fake, he has a small bed, where was he going to go with her? Loved seeing his apartment an the piano playing and singing. I will miss him when he is gone.
