  • Vance is getting closer to Gibbs.

  • Vance is prepared to be explicit with Gibbs about the boundaries of who issues orders to whom: and Vance ain't taking orders. He is the boss. (the boss of "Boss")

  • The Secretary for the Navy stated that Vance's job was to clean up the mess from the previous Director. Jenny clearly did NOT cover herself with glory by dying for the cause.

  • Tony becoming more confident and standing up to Gibbs about feeling used.

  • Tony resenting not being told secrets is a perfect role reversal of when he refused to disclose the Jeanne secret to Gibbs.

  • There was lots of tension between Tony and Ziva, including one moment in the elevator where Ziva hinted her true feelings for Tony. And Tony, with a one track mind, was not thinking of Ziva but the case.

  • McGee's concern for Abby when she's the ''suspect''


  • Tony, while stalling to collect intel on building giving everyone code names from the movies Convoy and Smokey and the Bandit. He calls Dr. Mallard, Rubber Ducky, Ziva Widow Woman, Gibbs is Snowman, Jimmy Palmer Love Machine, calls himself the Bandit and then calls McGee, Spider Mike. And the soldier he refers to as Deckard from Blade Runner.

  • At the time the show aired, Battlestar Galactica fans were trying to guess who the final 5 Cylons were. McGee references this when he says to Palmer, "Sorry your girlfriend turned out to be a Cylon."

  • We see the Secretary of the Navy again later in this season.




  • 6.09 Dagger The team must rely on information from some questionable individuals to stop a criminal bent on stealing government secrets.

YouFlyGirl Cast defers to Ziva in fight scenes 4 Apr 4 2009, 5:15 PM EDT by bellswebster

I enjoy Ziva's fight scenes - I like to see her kick butt!

Having said that, it's interesting how the rest of the cast defers to this. Usually, it's Tony's character who suffers. For example in Corporal Punishment, the corporal breaks his nose with one punch, so that Ziva and the corporal can go at it mano a womano (although Gibbs is very carefully shown to be holding his gun on the fighting pair while the corporal who lost a leg gets in his way yelling don't shoot him), in Witness, where McGee runs after the man who kills the woman he, McGee, liked, the guy is able to shove past Tony quite easily... in this episode, Tony gets hit by a rifle butt (although he does save Ziva by deflecting the rifle fire aimed at her first) but then Ziva continues to take on all comers. Intersting that she gets punched out by a woman at the end!
