“Dead Reflection” has a case with Mission Impossible masks which sets up the background for everything else going on. With EJ’s team coming in, the port to port killer still on the loose, and some thorny relationship issues to work out, there’s quite a bit left before the end of the season.
Gibbs confronts Tony about his relationship with EJ after Tony is somewhat distracted during the case. Gibbs has a solid reason for being upfront with Tony since he wants Tony to work optimally, but we also have to remember that Gibbs doesn’t like EJ, which could play a role in his decision making.
The new team arrives and while they probably won’t be explored much, the the big guy outclasses McGee in every respect and cozies up to Abby which was fun. But McGee isn’t the only one feeling threatened, as both Ziva and EJ aren’t sure what to make of the other, especially when it comes to Tony.
EJ has this idea about placing the eye in front of the MTAC scanner and sure enough the door opens. Could the eye be from someone important we’ve met in the past?
