Summary: Three different viewpoints on the death of a friend.

It was just another dead body. That’s what I told myself over and over in my head. It was just another case, just another nameless victim of some violent act. We would bag, tag and process the scene and then search for the person or persons responsible. We would give closure to the family members of the deceased. There was only one problem; we were the family members. The burnt out husk of a human being was all that was left of Tony DiNozzo and the only person I knew I could interrogate was Jenny. It was her damn fault.

The explosion was replaying in a loop in my mind. The missed messages on my phone formed a cold band that was closing around my heart. Now I’m looking at the remains of his car, the remains of him, and I feel as if the world has tilted on its axis. I wanted nothing more than revenge on the man who killed my father. I was ready and willing to go to any length to apprehend him. But now I see that I wasn’t ready, that I shouldn’t have done it. The dead body of DiNozzo is on my hands.

It isn’t true. If I don’t go to autopsy, if Ducky doesn’t send me a sample for DNA, if I close my eyes and wish it away, then it never happened. Tony can’t die. I saw Kate’s body in autopsy, and knew it was her, but I won’t look at the body they say is Tony. If I don’t look, it won’t be true. If I don’t run the DNA, then it will never match Tony’s. I can’t lose another friend the way I lost Kate. I’ll just drink a Caf-Pow! and wait for Tony to come and hug me.

Okay, so I'm like waaaay behind in NCIS eps and if this really happened, then I'm not going to bother catching up.

Good one BTW.

Not to spoil or anything.... but... it did happen... but notice that Michael Weatherly is still on the show. ;-)

Season 5 (current season) was rocking up until the writer strike halted things...

Okay, so was it a dream ep or what? I hate getting blind sided. One of the reasons I'm such a spoiler ho. ;)

Okay... I'll spoil away...

It was Tony's car, Tony's badge, Tony's cells... but Tony wasn't in the car when it blew. The team didn't find out for sure until Ducky was doing the autopsy. Thank god for the plague.

Oh good. I hate getting emotionally invested in a character and then have to deal with said character getting offed.

Re: Gibbs Oh jesus. Gibbs' response was just so raw and honest. His inner thoughts, trying to convince himself that Tony is just another body. But it isn't the truth. There is no way that Gibbs would be able to remain objective throughout the investigation.

Re: Jenny Good - I'm glad that Jenny feels guilty. Unfortunately, the guilt of DiNozzo's death won't bring him back. Jenny used her position to go over a personal vendetta and it made me really upset. And then when his car blew up - I just couldn't breathe. Grrrr at Jenny!

Re: Abby Awww, Abby's denial and refusal to examine the evidence hurts worse that Gibbs' pain. Great job!! Seriously, her reasonining and refusal to lose another co-worker friend is just heart breaking!

Gibbs was trying to separate, but I don't think he succeeded. Poor guy, always people he cares for.

Yeah, I'm all grrr regarding Jenny. She totally abused her position, but she's still there. Not right I say.

And Abby... Abby would be good at denial. And Tony was the one who comforted her with Kate, so she didn't have him that time. *hugs Abby*

oh EXCELLENT. Especially Gibbs's "There was only one problem; we were the family members" and Abby's "If I don’t look, it won’t be true" I could hear them saying that

Abby's was my favorite. I actually had her repeat the "Tony can't die," line but had to cut it because of length.

Very nice. Very.

All were awesome... but Abby's was just... I can see those thoughts running through her head.
Feb. 20th, 2008 02:51 am (UTC)
Thanks! Yeah, Abby's thoughts were my favorite too. A Caf-Pow! will fix everything in the Abby world.
