I always thought there was something that didn't seem right about the "Bury Your Dead" episode. After re-watching it on USA the other day I realized what it was. How many times have you seen the team enter the squadroom and one of the first things they do is place their weapons in a desk drawer. It seems to me it happens nearly every episode. In other words, they do not carry their guns while in the office. And yet when Trent Kort cornered Tony in the elevator, Gibbs, McGee and Ziva all trained their weapons on him. They wouldn't have had time to retrieve them and it was clear from the previous action that they had been in the building for some time.
This is not a criticism of the episode, which is one of my favorites. I just think that there are a few too many contrived situations like this in many episodes. I think the writers add them for dramatic or comedic effect, which is perfectly fine, but they shouldn't strain credulity to do it. Maybe others will think differently. It really doesn't take away much from a great program. I guess for me it's more of a pet peeve...

When I was watching "Suspicion" (4.12) this week, I noticed that Ziva ends the episode researching the Y. pestis virus (that caused him to have the plague in S.W.A.K., ep. 2.22) to see if Tony could be suffering from any long term effects of the infection. But in this episode, when Ducky goes up to tell the team that the crispy critter couldn't possibly be Tony because the corpse's lungs were unscarred, Ziva says that was before her time, and she didn't know Tony had been ill.
