It was an emotionally draining episode for me. Even though I suspected Dom would be a goner by the end, I was still hoping he would live, but just not continue with NCIS. That he would go back to his parents, and start a new career. But, I was prepared for his death. I started tearing up when G tried to stop Sam, but totally lost it when Heddy was crying. The acting was excellent!
So glad the issue was resolved before the end of the season and not carried over into next. Great show!!!
