They introduced Ziva’s replacement last night and I’m not real impressed. They kinda painted themselves into a corner when they had Leon tell Gibbs “Future agents are going to look a lot more like McGee and a lot less like Tony” a while back, so I guess a credibly kick-ass action heroine just wasn’t in the cards.
Ellie Bishop, a quirky, nerdy, kinda hot looking NSA agent, made her debut. Other than visually, there’s not a huge enough contrast between her and Abby. She (while unarmed) took down an armed bad guy, for no better reason than that the script says she did. She’s an extreme Mary Sue and her unseen husband might as well be wearing a red shirt for how dead he will soon inevitably be.
