Well the timing for this week’s episode was perfect, giving us an Abby themed one just in time for Halloween. Also perfect for me since she’s one of my favorite characters on the show and I even dressed up as Abby last Halloween. Now at first I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t more Halloweenish (yep totally just made that word up) stuff, then again that kind of went along with what happened to Abby. Since she became fascinated by a woman she saw as a kindred spirit and lost herself for a bit while trying to solve the mystery. Only at the very end does she come back and that’s when she puts up her decorations. It was a great metaphor for the whole episode.
I really like it when Abby gets a chance to come out of the background and Pauley did a wonderful job. I also liked how everyone else around Abby reacted to the way she became so involved. She and McGee had some nice moments, as did she and Gibbs. It was sweet to see both of them worried about her and though they didn’t show his reaction as much, I think Tony was worried too, as evidenced by the fact that he got pissed at McGee for losing her on the bus.
