  1. Gosh, it's been years since I saw that (a big Cornelius Ryan fan) maybe--although they were taking down dead airborne troops not photos. I'm glad Callen had them take the photos down even if they were evidence. I've learned a lot about firearms and such watching this show. I wondered about getting shot wearing a vest so checked it out; it's like being hit full on with a baseball bat (and internal injuries are possible). Ouch!!
  2. Thanks for the info! These are episodes that will air sometime later in season 9; they are not the first two episodes of the season (A friend didn't believe me so she actually called--how embarrassing!!!) XD
  3. Quick question: I saw that they've already filmed 2 episodes for season 9 (off JPK and Tunell's Twitter). Does anyone know if those two are the first episodes of the new season? Thanks!
  4. I don't believe Sam's suicidal for a minute. He's expendable because Michelle was his wife, this is his fight. At least, that's what he thinks. Besides, if he were suicidal, why not just kill Tahir once all the civilians were off the bus? And he's certainly not going to commit suicide after Tahir's death; he has his kids. And he told G to take care of Hetty and the team until he gets back. If he doesn't come back, it won't be because he's committed suicide IMO.
  5. That's what I was wondering. Could it be whether or not Sam comes back? That doesn't seem like much given that he tells G to take care of Hetty and the team while he's gone. And wasn't there supposed to be something that was a "game changer"? Was that Michelle's death?
  6. I think it was more that the writers wanted to give Sam more opportunities to develop as a character. Having him "married" to a character who isn't on the show makes it tough. That's one reason I hope they either keep Anna as a semi-regular or find someone else who can be; I'm sick of hearing characters "talk" about relationships. If they're going to be in one, show us (like Kensi and Deeks and Eric and Nell). Were the tourists on the bus when it was hijacked? I didn't get that. I thought Tahir and his cohorts hijacked the bus and then picked up the tourists. You know, one of those get on - get off bus rides. That's funny, but being LA born and living in big cities around the country, that conversation isn't as unusual as you might think while waiting for public transportation. XD
  7. I agree that COD was the standout this episode and the shot when Sam is trying to drive away was great. I also found Nell's "emotion" at the beginning forced; her plea to Sam on the street was more believable. The proposal was as it should have been even if everyone saw it coming. The lack of henchmen was a problem, but I didn't think Tahir even cared about dying; he was consumed with hatred for Sam (I liked the bit about Sam's name--it's two words). One of the scenes that made me hurt was in the morgue when G tells Sam he's there for him--the whole team is--and Sam doesn't really acknowledge it. You know Sam's hurting, but I wish he had done something, touched his shoulder, looked at him, something to acknowledge what he said.
  8. True, but the episode was almost (or more than) halfway through by then. I would rather have seen Sam go it alone than with Sabatino (and I like Sabatino--always have cuz he reminds me of Renko). Sam really didn't go "lone wolf." And, once again, Callen's alone (and no, being a member of a team isn't the same as having someone in your life).
  9. That explains why Anna returns in season 9. Okay, I'm up for some more Callanna romance. ;-)
  10. I thought it was not as good as last week's; it wasn't nearly as intense or surprising.
  11. Maybe the twist is that Kensi--tired of waiting for Deeks to ask her (it's been weeks)--asks him to marry her. I could see that.
  12. This is my last comment--maybe--but I re-watched the beginning of this episode and it was so well-crafted I would use it to teach dramatic writing. I think I posted earlier about blaming--or maybe putting some blame on--Kensi and Deeks for missing Michelle when they were at the warehouse the first time, but watching it again, there's no one to blame. Military puts in the small details that make all the difference. The entire team worked efficiently and logically, they followed the clues and the information, they did everything they possibly could, they did everything right--and it wasn't enough. That's one of the things that makes it so hard to watch, and that's one of the things I love about Military's writing. Nobody's a caricature--not even the bad guys--and the emotions and actions are true (when I re-watched it, I honestly believed G would have crushed Charov's larynx if the guard hadn't pulled him away). Everyone did their best and it didn't make a difference.
  13. I read both posts, and to be honest, your reference to Leverage was way off. Besides, setting up something intricate takes time, and it's unlikely Tahir will stick around to let them get everything together. As for the safe room, you DID mention bathroom and closet, and when you look at your list, maybe you have HUGE bathrooms and closets where you live, but I'm guessing that list wouldn't fit in most. This is a discussion thread and folks will disagree with you--and me--but disagreement doesn't equal aggression. I think you're mistaken about telling people apart. I remember the scene when they witnessed people coming out of the mosque who had been marked; they all just appeared as dots. They "recognized" Janvier because they knew his location, and he was the only one who had been tagged.
  14. Well, you mentioned dousing him so my response was to that comment. But the spray does nothing more than tag someone without specifically identifying them don't you think it would be confusing if NCIS & other agents were tagged as well as terrorists? How would they know who they were watching (not to mention the whole invasion of privacy aspect)? I know I probably wouldn't let them tag me, plus Michelle didn't know she was compromised until it was too late.
