When one of the questions we have had all these years is how Gibbs gets his boat out of the basement when it's done.
And I hope we will find out some day.

I'd like to know that too...

Loved all the little references, and how they wrote their first meeting tying it nicely with the already existing NCIS history

Loved the episode. It was nice to learn about Gibbs and Ducky and how far back their friendship goes and how it all started.

A storm here on Tuesday night made me recording play up hope this doesn't keep up...

Gibbs is in the trunk?

McGee's anniversary So that means he decided to be an agent two or three years before the show started? Three I'm guessing since this would be set in 2019...

The wedding anniversary would explain Gibbs being over anniversaries

oo NCIS being painted... so weird not seeing the orange walls

Love how Gibbs' house was really Ducky's house first

McGee enjoying cutting into the wall

i was wondering if the M.E. was Dr Magnus who we'd met previously. Nice that Gibbs suggested that Ducky join NCIS Guess eventually Ducky did get to solve the case by working at NCIS

Ducky talking Gibbs into going back to Shannon very fitting
I presume that when Gibbs & Ducky cross paths again though Gibbs lies about Shannon? As Ducky didn't know about Shannon before... or we are meant to forget what they've already told us... it is also possible Ducky played dumb in respect for Gibbs, even when Jenny discovered the truth

Glad Gibbs decides to go out with the team in the end . That must've been one of the most awkward calls he's made

(side note: the end of the ep tells me new NCIS returns in two week so that means despite it being no-ratings period here they will still air all three eps that air this year in the US which is nice)


Agreed with the comments above about the boat in the bottle. Was thinking the same when I saw that bit

Either Ducky didn't want to say anything about Shannon, or possible they have simply lost in touch and by the time they re-met when Gibbs joined NIS, he didn't ask him about Shannon...

I mean Ducky is a gentleman, and before internet it wasn't that easy to keep in touch

Either way I loved the episode, and what they did with their first meeting...


And, yes, it was strange to see the office without the ugly orange... Wonder if we're going to get a new painting now that McGee "destroyed" the wall

I still think they would've realised who each other was even if they never kept in touch. I highly doubt they made enough of an impact on each other that they would've keep in touch. But still when they met again there should've been a memory, especially given its Ducky. He always has stories to tell

I never said anything about not liking it, simply that they are still unfortunately possibly contradicting what they've already told us

I doubt they'll ever get rid of the orange

Ducky could have recognized Gibbs, but decided to stay silent, if Gibbs didn't seem to recognize him (As he may have put everything related to Shannon into the back of his mind, never to bring up again... )


I don't mind them contradicting themselves every now and then... It's been on air since forever, and they're still more consistent with their stories than many of the other shows

2 weeks later watching the 400th

Oh Shannon's case or not considering Gibbs was in the trunk huh?

Oh McGee saying it was wedding anniversary for Gibbs/Shannon last week

Sean really looks great as younger!Gibbs oh Shannon mention just as a gf

DUCKY just look at him

and the first introduction of the boys

Ducky at the office

Beautiful scenes both past/present relating to Ducky/Gibbs

McGee joy at the wall

Steak grilling on the fireplace having gotten it from his father Jackson

Oh Gibbs being the one to steer Ducky to being an ME

Oh their conversation about Shannon than Gibbs saying he doesn't blame Ducky for his heartache relating to Shannon/Kelly

Love them ending the episode having Gibbs deciding to join the team for drinks it was pretty cute

Overall I don't think it was a big "contradicting" this case was probably 10-20 years before them meeting again after Shannon/Kelly were dead so its something I personally am able to forgive/overlook

Agreed

This was a great milestone episode, and it was amazing to see Young Ducky & Gibbs within the same episode
