The season 7 finale written by Jesse Stern was a brilliant episode. Again, much was asked of Mark Harmon and much was delivered by him.
The scenes between Gibbs and Paloma Reynosa were excellent. Thougt the best scene with the cartel was the one with Gibbs baiting Alendrjo. This is possibly the best scene Jesse Stern has ever written. The viewer is never quite sure is Alendrjo is going to pull the trigger or not.
Rocky Carroll also stepped up to the plate in this episode. Through out season 7 Rocky has been building up the character of Leon Vance. In "Rule Fifty-One" it becomes clear just whose side he is on. That of Leroy Jethro Gibbs. I will now sit here and have a thundering good gloat, as I have been saying that Leon is a good guy since he first appeared in "Internal Affairs" in season 5.
The scenes between Vance and Gibbs were masterpieces. The theme of "Casablanca" threading through the scene in Leon's office and the meeting in the park was brilliantly worked. I loved the nice touch of Leon beginning to hum "La Marseilles" as they walked away.
The scene with Ducky and Margaret Allison Hart in autopsy was good. I didn't think much of the scene between Margaret and Gibbs towards the end. It felt a bit flat. However, the flashback sequence with Gibbs thinking of Shannon and of Mike was wonderfully executed. I felt it was the perfect touch, which considering I don't like flashback sequences is saying a lot.
The final scene with Paloma entering Jackson's store has set us up for a thrilling season 8 premiere.
Jesse Stern being the writer he is, "Rule Fifty-One" gave us some memorable lines.
Gibbs: The drug trade is recession proof.
Vance: Not a poker player among you. Terrible, terrible bluffs.
Gibbs: You don't need tips on how to kill me.
Paloma Reynosa: I don't want your death. I want your life.
Paloma Reynosa: Your former mother in law comes next.
Gibbs: Doing me favors now?
Gibbs: Your sister wants to make me her pet.
Ducky: My God! My mind's a complete blank!
Vance: My life, my job, does not revolve around you, you egotistical son of a b*tch!
Vance: The worst enemies are the ones that hide in plain sight.
Mike Franks: I'll take it from here, Probie.

WHAT SORT OF WOMAN WOULD SUIT GIBBS?
14th June 2010
Another entry in my occasional and light-hearted series of blogs. This time a look at the type of woman who would suit Leroy Jethro Gibbs.
Firstly, she almost has to be an emotional masochist. This is a man who has more luggage than a Samsonite store.
She would have to be able to cope with the fact that Gibbs will most likely be carrying a torch for Shannon for the rest of his life. So patience and understanding that she will never be first in his heart would be primary requirements.
A tolerance for late nights and dark basements are a must. Along with a high alcohol threshold to deal with the large quantities of bourbon and beer that get imbibed in said basement. It goes without saying that an interest in boat building and also in wood working are definite musts. Ability to use hand tools would be an advantage, but not a necessity. Hollis Mann was useless with any sort of hand tool but she still caught Gibbs' interest - for a while.
Possession of a cute butt is an added advantage. Gibbs' eyes seem to be drawn to a woman's butt. I refer you to the episode "Doppelganger" in season 2. Whilst on the subject, a lack of jealousy would also be necessary. Gibbs does like to check out a woman's behind. I draw your attention to "Stakeout" in season 5. Even though not interested in Ziva in that manner, Gibbs couldn't resist checking out her butt when she was crawling around on the floor looking for booby traps. Interestingly, Gibbs has not as yet checked out the butts of Margaret Allison Hart or Holly Snow. But there is still time for that in season 8.
In short, the type of woman who would suit Gibbs is rare in the extreme. I think Leroy Jethro Gibbs would have better luck hunting a sasquatch than finding the perfect woman.

GIBBS AND TONY REVISITED
10th June 2010
I think that by far the most popular blog I have written was the one of the father and son relationship between Gibbs and Tony. It is certainly one that gave me a huge amount of feedback. Thank you to everyone who took part in the original discussions.
The relationship between Gibbs and Tony is probably the most popular one in the show. Most respondents commented on how much they loved the interaction between the two characters.
Given comments made by Michael Weatherly over the course of season 7, it is obvious that he personally has much respect and affection for Mark Harmon. This reflects in the quality of the onscreen relationship between their characters. Michael went so far as to refer to his relationship with Mark as being one of the most important relationships in his adult life. A recent interview with Mark Harmon printed here in Australia referred to Mark as a father figure to all his younger co-stars. Art reflecting life once again.
I think SpecialAgent summed it up best. "Another thing that hit me is that Tony told his father he "never told him he was proud of him and what he was doing". Yet Gibbs, who has the hardest time expressing his feelings/emotions, told Tony he was proud of him and he was doing a good job. And, personally, I think that is part of what a parent does. They overgo their boundaries to do what is best for their children and give them what they need, which is what Gibbs did."

EL BLOG Nº 100 DE LAS MODERADORAS DE LA WIKI DE NCIS
9 de junio
Ya sé que últimamente no me he prodigado mucho por estos lares, pero cuando el curro llama hay que entender y sobretodo en épocas de crísis como ahora.
Bueno, bueno, bueno hemos alcanzado el mítico Nº 100 de las páginas Blog de las moderadoras de esta página web lo cual no es moco de pavo, y mientras siga NCIS en antena seguiremos exponiendo.
Por lo visto, según se ha podido saber Tele5 va a estrenar NCIS: Los Ángeles muy pronto, será después de la mundial del balompíe, que si nada más empezar a marear la pérdiz apaga y vamonos.
Es que el verdadero problema es que sí se va a estrenar en una de las grandes cadenas privadas , no conviene que anden bailando las fechas de emisión porque de lo contrario la peña se va a mosquear para luego pegar la espantada como pasó en su día con la serie 24.
Al menos todos los partidos de la mundial de futbol se juega única y exclusivamente en Tele5, lo cual quiere decir que podremos tener LaSexta para nosotros con Gibbs y Cía., sin embargo, eso no deja de ser una arma de doble filo, ya que es de suponer en la inauguración este viernes día 11, y nuevo capítulo de Navy, lo podremos ver tranquilamente. Ahora bien a l@s forof@s de futbol como se les dices que Navy es más importante; bueno yo podría alquilar plazas de sofá para l@s que no pueden ver dicho episodo debido a la anteriormente citada campeonato de futbol.
Por cierto, leí el otro día en el periódico que la líquidez de LaSexta es estable y no por hay que preocuparse, es decir, podremos seguir viendo Gibbs y Cía la temporada que viene.
Y colorín colorado este cuento se ha acabado.
Agur bihar arte!
