One of the things we’ve known about Tony from the beginning of this series is that he has daddy issues. For years his father was mentioned only as part of the punch line of a joke – taking his Halloween candy away because little Tony used one of his ski suits as a costume, leaving Tony alone in a hotel suite in Hawaii because he forgot about him. None of these things exactly made the guy father of the year.
Last year we got to meet DiNozzo Sr for the first time and that episode quickly became one of my favorites – first of all because Robert Wagner did an amazing job at portraying Tony’s dad, and secondly because they didn’t resolve the father/son issues between the two of them. I hate to say it but I don’t know if I want the two of them to completely reconcile. Tony without daddy issues just wouldn’t be Tony. Plus I really like the Tony/Gibbs dynamic on the show and I think part of what makes them so close is the fact Tony has those issues with his father.
