NCIS "Love Boat" Recap

Gibbs, Quinn and Jimmy get to travel to a Navy ship when one of the people on board is murdered.

Is Ducky going to retire? We are seeing an awful lot of Jimmy lately. Not that I mind at all, because I considered him one of the most underrated characters on the show. It'll be nice to have him in the spotlight more. Though I will miss Ducky a bunch, but I don't know. Guess you could say I have torn feelings on that subject. 

Anywho, their new mission takes them to a Navy ship. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this might be the first time Jimmy has been on one. It seemed like it anyways. Fun watching him in a new eliminate without Ducky there to totally help him out with stuff.

This case kind of took a surprising turn and to me, it was overly done just to try to get his son back. But I guess he was desperate and people do stupid stuff in desperate situations. Still, all this to do a kidnapping on his son?

Yep, the murder led to a kidnapping. Remember the guy who was like "Oh, I love this trip, I don't have to pay for anything" guy? Well, he was the one who was in on it. At first, I was thinking it might have been the guy who snuck on board illegally and once he jumped ship, I thought they had the guy. But turned out to be just a paparazzi trying to get exclusive stuff on the star on board. 

Then there was the cousin, who actually didn't even turn out to be a cousin. Just two lovers who wanted to spend more time together. Vivian was just trying to do the right thing when she realized who this guy was and was killed for it. For a second there, I thought that the cousin had done it, but all he was hiding was the fact that they were in love, not cousins. The only thing he regretted was the fact that he didn't ask Vivian to marry him.

Speaking of which, that was the main topic of discussion between workers in this episode. McGee was planning the perfect proposal. But this whole case made McGee realize that you can't always wait for something, you have to do it now or else you might be too late next time. His proposal was so them, which is sad he couldn't do it that way. But McGee decided to take a leap and do it then instead of later. He knew that now was the best time. Oh and btw, she did say yes. There wasn't any doubt in my mind that she would say no. They've come through so much together, it'd be awful to have it end now and I just hope that they get a wedding episode.

Nick is still having a hard time adjusting to a team and to desk work, it seems like. I guess for an agent who's been in the field (literally) most of his career, would be hard to adjust to doing just paper work. But you've gotta do that part of the job, too. Though he didn't like the whole "nerd fest" that was going on which was a bit of a turn off, but still enjoying his character a lot. He just adds something different to the team.
