NCIS ep worth talking about: Bloodbath

Guts in a hotel room. Drugs. Better call NCIS. Now, in order for this to be important, you need to know that Abby was testifying in court for an embezzling case. Director Shepherd and Ziva were trying to help her dress up 'normaly.' Tony came in to pick up Ziva for the case.

Tony: Good thing I caught up with you. Another minute and you guys would have been braiding each others hair.

In the office.
Tony: [takes a calendar out of McGee's trash] Nice calendar probie.
McGee: Hey!
Tony: You shouldn't have this stuff. It's bad for you.
McGee: It was a gift.
Tony: From who? Your nurse?
Gibbs: [appears behind him] No. From me.
Tony: Nice calendar boss.

Tony: The crime scene was staged boss. The victims were killed somewhere else.
Gibbs: Where?
Tony: What? Do I have to do all the work?
Gibbs: [gives him a look]
Tony: Getting right on it.

In Abby's lab, McGee is lurking around her door. Abby, of course, spotted him. She suddenly laughed and said that McGee was trying to catch a glimpse of her in her court clothes. McGee tried to deny it. Abby told him that she could read him perfectly. Then she noticed something. Suddenly, she dragged McGee down. The drugs she was testing were reacting to a chemical she had put in it. As a poison. The two ran out of her lab and secured it. Later, everyone else was trying to figure this out. Abby, NEVER makes mistakes.

Shepherd: But Abby doesn't have enemies. It's not like we're talking about DiNozzo.
Tony: Hey!
Shepherd: [gives him a look]
Tony: Ma'am.

Any way, it turns out Abby is being stalked. No.1 suspect: Abby's ex-boyfriend. But he had an airtight alibi (Gibbs, Tony and Ziva caught him in the middle of a practical joke, btw). Gibbs told McGee to bring Abby to his house to protect her. She forgot her toothbrush in his car and they had an argument. McGee told her to use a toothbrush he had no idea it belonged to. Abby said no way.

Abby: I'll just go get mine.
McGee: No!
Abby: I can take care of myself.
McGee: I'm not worried about you, I'm worried about me! What if Gibbs finds out?
Abby: Good point. You should go.
McGee: You're coming with me.
Abby: I'm staying here.
McGee: Then so am I.
Abby: Then I'll use your toothbrush.

McGee relented. He told her not to open the door for anyone. She agreed and he went out. The door was knocked and she checked it. It was McGee. He was really angry at her (he had to get his keys) and threatened to tie her up next time she did that.

Abby: Really? [gives freaky smile]

McGee went out. The door was knocked again and Abby answered it (I think she wanted to see if McGee would come up to his threat). It wasn't McGee. It was her ex-boyfriend. There was a bit of a fight were she broke McGee's typewriter and keyboard. Her ExB kept saying something about her being in danger and that he was trying to protect her. She obviously didn't believe him. She locked herself into the bathroom and looked for a new weapon while the ExB picked the lock. He came in and Abby was about to attack him with the toilet top. It was McGee. Her ExB had escaped.
Office scene. Ziva wondered why McGee didn't have a chair.

Gibbs: He doesn't deserve to sit.

Later, after McGee got his chair back, Gibbs went into the elevator, where Abby was sitting. She showed Gibbs her new weapons. A taser from McGee (or Tony), pepper spray from Ziva and metal knuckle rings from Director Shepherd. Gibbs comforted her. Meanwhile, the court is trying to figure out if Abby's evidence is reliable at this juncture. (dundunduuuuuun!)
Later, McGee is able to somehow track the ExB and Abby has moved back into her lab (she was planning to stay in the elevator). Before he left, Ducky gave her a safety whistle. Abby, of course, is ecstatic. I won't go into a long speech, but her ExB called her. He was looking right through the lab window. Freaky, yeah? Anyway, they caught him. He was zipped to interrogation. He promised that Abby was being stalked, but it wasn't him. He showed the pictures he had taken of Abby (if he wanted to stay under the radar as not the bad guy, he shouldn't have been taking pictures of her… from a distance no less) and pointed to the first one.
ExB: You see that creepy guy?
Tony: [points to McGee in the picture] That creepy guy?
ExB: No. [points to a guy more in the distance]

That 'creepy guy' showed up in every picture… and picked Abby up to bring her to court. And she didn't even know. Until he didn't let her pick up her phone (Ziva called her to warn her). I can't remember how they found the van, but Tony and Gibbs heard a safety whistle coming from a van. They opened the door and the 'creepy guy' fell out… on the end of Abby's taser.

Abby: You tore my skirt! [presses taser again]

When court was finished, the accused was found not guilty. But… he should have hired the 'creepy guy' to keep quiet as well as kill Abby. In your face man!
Meanwhile, Gibbs vented some fury at Abby's ExB. He was planning all kinds of crazy things. Including a fake suicide note in Abby's hand writing. Then the ExB went onto a huge speech on how he and Abby were made for each other, yelling to the other end of the glass, thinking she was there. But she wasn't…
