Turkey Day arrived a couple days early on NCIS Season 12 Episode 9, though this installment of the CBS drama was certainly not for the birds.
The action mostly took place around Dulles International Airport in Washington D.C., where Tony, Bishop and Bishop’s husband, Jake, were grounded temporarily for the holidays.
And we need to start with our impressions of Bishop’s more handsome half, don’t we?
Played by Jamie Bamber, he’s protective of Bishop, though also sort of clueless about her life at NCIS.
He had no idea, for example, that Bishop carries a gun around, along with various kinds of crime gear.
But Jake still wanted to be the one to stand up for his wife, telling a man who bumped her at one point (without apologizing) that it was an act “up with which he will not put.”
As for the Crime of the Week?
It centered around a culprit who killed an Air Marshall after impersonating him in order to get his weapon into the airport.
Away from the rest of the team, this gave Tony the opportunity to once again take lead, which is always entertaining. Especially when they involve a solid use of puns.
Abby, McGee and company, however, did get involved from afar (the killer ended up being notorious chameleon and someone on the Most Wanted list Bishop reads every week).
Overall, the installment was a tremendous showcase for Tony. It was a blast watching him interact with Jake and to ramble on about how much he hates couples after he went to Jamaica last Christmas and his resort was couples-only. Not that he hates Bishop and Jake, of course.
