Did You Know?


When Abby says "Ugh, I could never wear contact lenses.. Just the thought of sticking my finger in my eye", she says the last two words like "me e'e", in the same style as Ducky did in his toast in the last episode of season 4, NCIS: Angel of Death (2007) ("with a teardrop in it's e'e").

When McGee is checking on Dr Flemming, the computer screen says, "AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL USE ONLY. VIOLATERS WILL BE PROSECUTED". The word "violators" is misspelled. See more »


NCIS Intel Analyst Nikki Jardine: He is the perfect deep-cover mole. Sort of an Arab version of Kevin Costner in "No Way Out.'
Officer Ziva David: [aside to Tony] A movie buff! One more thing you two have in common.

Could've been better
26 February 2018 | by lovettstoughSee all my reviews

I liked the episode as I like all of NCIS episode except for Michael Weatherly character Tony. This episode could've been a whole lot better though especially when they said the mole the girl was trained just like Ziva therefore a better ending would've been better to let the two women fight it out in the end with all their special training with Ziva winning obviously while the others worried about saving Tony from falling from where he was hanging from.
