This episode sounds like a scary one. What are they doing? :eek:

maplezbear 01-26-2020 07:55 PM

Trying to get Bishop and Torres to admit their feelings? :P Idk, but they must want to give us fans a scare again :lol:

shinebrighterxx 01-26-2020 08:01 PM

I'm hoping that's the only reason for it :look: (the admit the feelings one, not just because they like to scare the fans)

maplezbear 01-26-2020 08:06 PM

:lol: I would have known which one you meant. I guess we will see!

This episode... :eek:

maplezbear 01-28-2020 08:17 PM

Yes, this episode was just wow. Kinda left me guessing about the accident. Then the end... just makes you wonder!

Don't want to say too much right now :lol:

k-drama addict 01-28-2020 08:44 PM

It was a good one, that much is able to be said. :wiggle:

florerr 01-29-2020 03:05 PM

Oh, wow... :thud:

It was a great episode, i don't know what to say about the ending though... It truly makes you wonder on what may / could happen next... :look:

Well that was surprising. I did like they did the gotcha with the ultimate villian. The Russian was very cartoonish. Intense. Bishop has been known to go off the reservation before... With what happened to her past love Quasim. and done stuff that could almost rival Gibbs's past, although it's not as long and gritty as his past...

So, I guess, who knows what it all means...

Question is if the show has learned from the long tease with Tony and Ziva. Seems they are blantant acknwowledging and yet ignoring at the same time.

They did go dark with that last scene, and the implication.

I was a viewer of CBS’s Scorpion.

That series had two couples. One pair were supporting and one pair were the lead characters.

Establishing them, and how to execute, can be tricky.

Scorpion handled the supporting characters very naturally. Well-done. But, the series yanked the collective chains on the lead couple. The 2017–18 season that saw ABC premiere The Good Doctor sent Scorpion into a tailspin because NBC also debuted The Brave. The Good Doctor became a Top 10 hit. The Brave and Scorpion were spending the season battling for second in the time-slot. Only The Good Doctor survived the season to return for the 2018–19 season. And during Scorpion’s forth and last season, the showrunners did not adjust (they had ample warning with the ratings and the potential for cancellation) and set the lead characters back on the right path. (The series ended bitterly.)

A lot of people who don’t want, say, two characters on a given series to become a couple have concern it can get screwed up. And that it can negatively affect the dynamics of the series. I think NCIS knows better by its example with handling Tim’s relationship with and marriage to Delilah. That particular area of storytelling is about having these main characters have personal lives, which over time go through some changes, to go along with their professional ones. To get Ellie and Nick together, to have them become established as a couple, I think NCIS would not distract the audience with having them argue (bicker) while investigating crimes.

I think part of the reason why viewers want Ellie and Nick together are, yes, they are right for each other. But, really, it has to do with caring about the characters and wanting to see them—if they have the opportunity—have love in their lives. NCIS did right with Tim, after all his years, and the series can do it again with Ellie and Nick. And, frankly, people are looking out for an on-the-horizon pairing of Gibbs and Sloane.

I can see why they were hesitant during those years between Tony and Ziva. Although in the end, they were very blantant, and yet they didn't want to pull the trigger and they suffered because of that because eventually contracts got in the way, and one left, and then both so they were forced to give some closure to it.

I think it could have worked. But the the first decade, they were worried about what it meant for the show, and so they never did it. And suffered because of it.

Now with Nick and Bishop or Gibbs and Sloane, they could do it because it doesn't have to change things. But it would be little more difficult due to the team dynamic.

So I am curious to see whee it goes.

I have no real complaints with them slowly building Ellick (and even Slibbs up...)... NCIS has always been a show focused on bigger issues, and not just about office triangles and what not...

Also they did come a long way from the better sweet still not HEA of Harm & Mac (in JAG)... Sure, McGee - just like Bud in JAG - got his happy ending, but Bellisario & the executives have been known about their tendency to not make things official went it comes to main pairings / viewer favourites...

For the last 2 years they've seen to change their strict no office-couple rules, and at least are focused on building them up... Of course it's still NCIS, so the slow burn is kind of given... In a leopard doesn't change its spots kind of way... :P

What I also enjoyed in the episode how the team dynamic has developed...

Bishop still has no problems with going against anyone & everyone if someone she cares about is threatened; McGee on the other hand got Sloan involved in order to convince Gibbs to do something about Ellie... McGee is starting to realize that if he wants Gibbs to react (differently than usual) he needs to get Sloan involved...
