aww hope you can catch up on all of them & this week will be the one you can watch them all in

I haven't watched NCIS from Sunday night here, which was the ep before this. I'm kinda putting it off & might just watch the two together when I'm brave enough to say goodbye

One hell of a start .. not sure how I will be in 50 min

Edit 11pmest .. #1 the way they ended her role was well done, happy in one way, sad she left NCIS.
What we don’t see coming is a huge loss The tease is that Abby is in the body bag In the NCIS mourge .. Clayton was killed in the robbery .Huge shock..
We get flashbacks of Kate’s death Franks death and Ziva ..I guess no room for Jenny death
Lots of Abby and Gibbs and Magee flashbacks few with Tony .

Then the twist begin , not a robbery but A professional hit contract on Abby ..
Abby is up awake and out of the hospital , only a arm injury .

She ends up getting Torres, her 24 hour bodyguard , to go inti her coffin where she locks him in Gibbs has to save him ..

I don’t remember the two Bad guys who where imprisoned . One exScaped prison to get Abby .
Beside the death of Clayton the episode wasn’t too sad .

Are things so bad between Mark and Pauley that they couldn't even share a scene in her final episode? That's just sad.

I did like all of the Abby/McGee moments, and I was glad that ultimately the most focus was given to her relationships with McGee and Gibbs as those were her two most significant ones on the show. I also liked that we got a little Tony mention. And her takedown of the criminal was cool too.

As for Reeves, I liked him and his death was sad. I hope they don't replace him, though as the show has too many characters even without him around.

Loved the poker game at the beginning, it was especially great seeing Fornell.

All and all a pretty good episode with enough emotional moments to satisfy our needs, even with that glaring absent absence of a one on one with Gibbs and Abby.

Just watched it I did think it was a brilliant goodbye episode for her I did enjoy it for her . The reasoning for her goodbye made sense.

Reeves death was a shock I didnt see that coming, I ddint love his character but I didnt want him to get killed off it was so sad , they have lost so much it's hard to see them lose it .

The flash backs made a lot of sense I did like it. Kate , Tony, Ziva and Mike all sad I miss them all

I love abby's house why didnt wr see any of their houses before this he apartment is so cool haha her coffin is strange but hey .

Love her goodbye to the team , but yes I agree we should of had a Gibbs and abby good bye that was needed sad wr didnt it .

Although we lost two I dont think we need two people to be replaced just abby's role really

I had no idea there was on set issues with Mark and paulie .. oh well .
Hey after 15 years on a TV show with 12-14 hr days is hard .

Abby deciding to honor Clayton start up his charity etc was a nice touch . Really would have liked to have seen Tony on a video chat or even with his dad to say goodbye .

Again of all the prior deaths flashbacks no love for Director Jenny , but I understand her role was a lot to with Jethro and Franks not Abby

I don't know if the rumors are true. I think it's natural for there to be rumors. I know it has been said before that Mark takes personally if someone wants to leave the show on their own. And with both Michael and now Pauley you saw a lack of personal scenes in the months with Gibbs and their character after disclosing they are leaving. Now, that is just gossip and speculation and hard to know if it's true. Until the show is over, or people want to open up.

With a long show, over 15 or more years, I am sure the hours are long but in the end, the good-bye for Gibbs and Abby sorta worked. She would have a hard time face to face with Gibbs to say she's leaving. And then you see them looking at each other in the end...

It opens up that maybe Abby can come back for a episode or so, or especially if they wrap up the show.

I don't why they wrote out Abby before the finale. It would have better to have the finale be Abby being racked with guilt, and finally deciding to leave. Instead of it being so rushed...

But they did the gotcha. No one expected it to go down. Although I sensed it, when I saw the body bag and I had seen some of the promo's so I knew it couldn't have been who they were making it out to be, then I was shocked how no one suspected.

But then they always had trouble with his character. He even admists it. Once Gary Gasberg died last year, they had trouble.

Abby will be missed. She was a very important part of the show!

Tbh it would of made more sense if abby had one ot two more episodes than leave for sure I guess she wanted to leave sooner rather than later . It's sad cause towards the end she did have less screen time similar to ducky but we had a reason for his absent.

I like this goodbye I do hope once the show does end these characters can come back as a cameo would be nice way to send it off.
