Anybody just watch NCIS? Was that guy Abby's real brother?

They looked so much alike. He had to be related to Pauley Perette.

Unrelated to the look-alike. Hubby says that all the exciting plots are now going to NCIS Los Angeles and all the procedural plot lines are being sent to the original NCIS in order to boost NCIS:LA's ratings. I gotta admit, the Romanian mob shoot out was fun.

I wondered the same thing, so I looked him up on IMDB. He's not her brother; in fact, they've dated. Apparently she recommended him for the part because they look so much alike.

What puzzled me was that she was supposed to be younger than he.

I could never date someone who looked so much like me. There's too much of a chance that somebody's parents are lying to them.

I don't know where I could find pictures. The show just ended and I don't even know the guy actor's name.

He had on green contacts which made the resemblance uncanny.

I call bullshit on Abby getting DNA from the hair in that locket. You can get DNA from the root, but that lock of hair was neatly cut well above the root.

Well I just googled it and this website says you can do mitochondrial DNA testing which is what she was doing in the episode.

Have to say this is the first episode this season that wasn't called in.

Okay. All I know about forensics, I learned from cop shows. Like this one.

I thought she said they did the mitochondrial testing for the kidney transplant. That's how they knew the other guy was her brother. Did she do the same on the hair?

I thought that too, but after the explaination at the end of the episode there was no reason why she would have to be younger.

Nope, prior to this, all we knew about Abby's family is that her mother is Deaf and named Gloria and that she had a pet tortoise that she would ride like a tractor when they all went to Grammy Scuito's house.
