Trivia

At the beginning of the episode, we see McGee using his type writer, he types the letter A, and then shreds the paper. Sean Murray is the step-sibling of Troian Bellisario (who plays his sister in this episode), who stars in Pretty Little Liars, focused on the anonymous character A. In Pretty Little Liars Troian's character studies a lot, focuses on exams and spends a lot of time in the library. This is also true for her character of this episode. See more »

Nepotism is successful
30 August 2011 | by lor_See all my reviews

Twisted sister is an entertaining "gimmick" episode of NCIS, that remains enjoyable 5 years later. Casting of producer's daughter and Sean Murray's step-sister as his younger sister Sarah works quite well. That's the jumping off point for the key gimmick: putting Murray as McGee on the spot: sis shows up on his doorstep all bloody, half-amnesiac and thinking she's murdered someone. As McGee naturally tries to protect her, his status as government agent is in jeopardy since his team is investigating the case where she is clearly the prime suspect. Entire cast is convincing in dealing with this extreme situation, including bosses Mark Harmon and Lauren Holly who must make critical decisions regarding McGee. Of course, the closure of episodic TV irons everything out by episode's end, but I was captivated by McGee (and sis) facing seemingly insurmountable problems. Troian Bellisario, who dad had been putting in his TV series as far back as 15 years earlier (when she was just 5) in "Quantum Leap", is quite effective as a still unseasoned actress challenged with a nearly unplayable role, and she does team up convincingly with Murray. All in all, a tricky segment pulled off nicely.
