NCIS Season 11 Review “Better Angels” – My Enemy, My Friend

In this episode of NCIS, called “Better Angels,” Gibbs gets a disturbing call about his father and ends up learning more about Jackson’s past, while Tony and McGee share point on a case and end up not killing each other.

The father and son dynamic is one that has been played a lot on this show, but it’s one that I don’t think I will ever tire of. Each relationship (whether it’s Gibbs and Jackson, Tony and his dad or even Gibbs and his pseudo children) is different and each one has pulled at my heart in one way or another. In this episode, Gibbs was faced with the very real possibility that his dad might have gotten to that point where he needed more help. To see Gibbs struggle with how to care for the man that raised him was very emotional. Though it turned out Jackson wasn’t as bad off as it was first assumed, there is no doubt that he is heading down that road and I have to wonder if Gibbs will convince him to move in with him.
