DiNozzo Remembers Who Shot and Framed Him on 'NCIS' Premiere (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 21st 2011 6:30AM
For its Season 9 premiere, 'NCIS' (Tue., 8PM ET on CBS) crafter a rather clever mystery adventure, told in dramatic flashbacks as we, and DiNozzo, tried to figure out what went down during the summer break.

He suffered short-term memory loss after waking up in a hospital, so it was through bits and pieces as his memory came back to him that we were able to figure out what happened.

It was a different storytelling device, and one that proved very effective in creating a slow burn of tension throughout the episode.

It turns out that the old adage of never trust the FBI is a good one, as Agent Stratton betrayed and set up DiNozzo to take the fall for the shootings of EJ and Cade. With Cade dead and EJ missing, there's more to be uncovered yet.

Sratton was not FBI, he belongs to the much darker organization--"the Watchers". Their agenda is not what it seems. Reminds me of Spectre. The episode was very noir and very effective. I so enjoy watching actors at the top of their game.

Even though the series is filmed in color, it had a "film noir" vibe to it that certainly kept me on the edge of my seat! I'm totally looking forward to the rest of the season.

Seriously?! Is it really that difficult as TV WRITERS to put spoiler warnings?

Seriously!?!? Is it really that difficult to realize, that the blog post you are about to read, about a particular episode of a particular show, might contain what actually happened in the episode.
