Day #27 - Favourite Jenny episode or moment

It took me even longer to warm up to Jenny than it did to Ziva. I positively disliked Jenny to begin with and for quite some time. Actually, I blame the writers, it was such a shame she was so badly written - she could have worked really well. To my mind the big mistake was making her Gibbs's ex-lover, her being on his team would have been enough and caused enough uneasiness and conflict, but to add the lover bit, I've always (and still do) think was a huge mistake.

At one point (when I disliked her) I would have chosen a negative moment. But now I'm not going down that route.

I'm going with 'Chimera' from Season 5. Now I know it wasn't a Jenny-centric episode, but Jenny was superb in it, especially in her dealings with Skinner. She wasn't going to take any nonsense or be given the run-around; she was very director-like, did her job, supported her team and does not fall for Skinner trying to flirt with her.

In this episode Jenny is really now, it has to be said, a good Director. She is doing what she should be doing.
