Things took a surprising turn for Ducky and Jimmy on "NCIS" this week. The pair were transporting the body of a Lieutenant Colonel whose case they were working when they got abducted.
"I need to find out what happened to Lieutenant Ross. And you are my best shot," the woman who'd captured them told Ducky. When he got defiant suggesting that he could simply refuse to do what she asked, she said, "I won’t kill you. I’ll kill your friend. Slowly."
Due to some quick thinking after they found out the kidnappers had no intention of letting them go alive, Ducky and Jimmy were able to orchestrate their own escape. Meanwhile, the rest of the team was hot on their trail -- working the case at the same time. Everything converged just in time to take down the kidnappers and expose Lt. Ross for the con-artist he turned out to be.
It was a great mix of drama, character development and fun. The formula that's helped "NCIS" become the number one show on television. A reviewer for Gather was certainly one of those fans, writing that she loved the episode's mix of fun and suspense.
