NCIS "Lost At Sea" Episode Review

*Review contains spoilers, so read at your own risk!*

Helicopter crash and the team investigates to find the missing pilot. Ziva does a bet with Tony and McGee.

Agent Borin is back in this episode since it has to do with the coastguard. Not really sure how I feel about her character. She's not bad, but I don't know how I feel about her. She doesn't annoy me, though, so guess that's a good thing.

Knew something had to be up when Tim and Tony seemed to switch up their story when Ziva asked them what they had done the night before. Come to find out, their story wasn't true at all. Because all they did was stay at McGee's place and play video games and neither one of them had a date like they said! Before all of that was found out, though, Ziva issued a bet on who could get a date the fastest and she'll do their case work for a month! Of course they go for it and throughout the whole episode, both guys try hard to get a date. Both eventually ask out Agent Borin, but both of them get shot down! Did Ziva perhaps just hint to Tony to ask her out, though? Anybody catch that or was she just saying to invite herself along the next time?

It was a funny episode, but I felt like the case part was too easy. Knew from the beginning who the bad guy was and I ended up being right! That like hardly ever happens. It was a pretty weird case, though. But are there ever normal cases?

So, found out the guy that died was depressed and there was so many different stories that were told, I don't remember which one was right! First, they were saying it was a mechanical error. Then, they were saying the guy wanted to kill himself because he had just found some pretty bad news about his son (they did find the missing pilot, but he had been shot and died). Then we find out that they faked the crash! Weird, right?

If I remember correctly, they faked the crash because they were selling something they weren't supposed to sell and not everybody could go through with what was going on. Boat captain ended up shooting the guy and guess who the boat captain was? Yep, the guy at the beginning who was having a cow about them taking the trash away on the beach. Thought that was very odd and from then on, I knew he had to be involved at least somehow. But like I said, it's very unusual for me to solve the case right away.
