Day #29 - Favourite Vance episode or moment

I did not like Vance when we first met him and when he first became the director, it took me quite some time to warm up to him. Even though I didn't like him, I did always enjoy his interaction with Gibbs, it brought something different to the show. Now I do like Vance and think he's a good director.

The two major Vance episodes were ones I wasn't looking forward to, but ended up enjoying a lot more than I expected, so I could go for either.

However, I'm going to go for the Season 6 episode 'Knockout' partly because given the way it was centred around boxing and I hate boxing, I just don't get the appeal at all, I would have expected it to leave me cold, but it didn't.

I enjoyed the episode. The case was really neither here nor there, it was just a vehicle to lead us to the whole 'just who is Vance' and to see another side of Vance. The passionate caring family man and friend. But also to see how he did 'dump' his old friends, once he'd moved onwards and upwards. Which isn't that unheard of. It also confirmed a few things (namely that Tony had been deeply in love with Jeanne, which we knew). And it promised a lot more - okay, so it failed to deliver in the end, but at the time the promise was there.

Not the best episode, certainly not in my top ten or even top twenty-five. But overall, it gets my vote as the best Vance episode.
