After a 2 week break, this does look like a really good episode. Then again, after 7 seasons, there are very few episodes to NOT like..... :)

Let's get chatting!

7.20 Moonlighting has been written by Jesse Stern AND Steven D. Binder (my two favorite writers fulfilling an NCIS wish of mine).

It's a Fornell episode, even better.

AND we see the return of the Mafia enforcer Stefano Delmar from the season 6 episode "Nine Lives".

This is going to be a brilliant episode!
