|Reviews for Boxed In|
| MidwestDreamer chapter 1 . 7/1
Thank you for exploring Tony's reactions to finding out he'd been deliberately excluded from Ziva's dinner party. You hit on many of the things that were either subsequently revealed or hinted at in canon...and also a lot of the things I personally believe about the character.
"Boxed In" remains one of my least favorite episodes in the entire series which, as I write this, recently concluded its 14th season. It has garnered that distinction due to the (imho) emotional bashing of Tony done for the sake of "humor." It's odd...I have watched and enjoyed countless episodes of the show in which Tony has been *physically* battered, and that doesn't really bother me. Tony is Tony and he seems to be a magnet for that type of thing. With this episode, however, I find myself hurting for him on a visceral level. As you very insightfully pointed out, Ziva was new...and the team was *Tony's* family. We were never given a reason for Ziva's actions in canon; your take that it was done as a joke makes sense. Even though Gibbs was in on it, I'm glad you had him grasp just how poor a joke it was...and that it certainly wasn't a joke to Tony. I also despised the way, in the episode, Ziva made light of Tony being shot and hence really appreciated the way you had Gibbs take McGee to task when he reiterated Ziva's observation.
This was a really thoughtful and sensitive piece, and it ticked all the boxes (hah...see what I did there?!) for me. Thanks for sharing...

Gibbs should've quoted Liam Neeson in Taken.

Oooh - a very kind interpretation of their "prank." Very nice ending, too. Thanks!

I'll acknowledge that some of the pranks and practical jokes pulled by Tony are in poor taste but that doesn't change the fact that ALL of the ones pulled on him by Ziva & McGee are hurtful in nature, even when they don't realize it.

Reading it reminds why I Dislike the David character so much. This episode gave us what the character David really like one word: HURTFUL!

I really don't like Ziva, I beginning to watch NCIS. After watch Boxed In, I felt indignant for Tony who didn't get invited, reading this story make me felt hell lot better with big grin. Thank you for writing dedicating to Tony. No one should be left out!

Hi, great addition to the episode ... I too thought it cruel when everybody had been to Ziva's place except Tony. I'm glad you made it up to him! Love your writing! Thanks and cheers!
