Not Alone?

“Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds”

J. Robert Oppenheimer, quoting from the Bhagavad Gita

I just finished watching my recording of Tuesday night’s “Shiva” episode of CBS’s NCIS, which was the conclusion of a powerful and moving two-parter that began last week with “Shabbat Shalom.” I hope you all got the chance to see both parts. I’m still wiping away the tears myself. And even though there was no “To Be Continued” at the end this time, I have a strong suspicion that this story isn’t quite over just yet…

For those who didn’t get to see them, the “Shabbat Shalom” episode is available for watching online at the NCIS, and I’m sure the “Shiva” episode will be available soon. Here’s the “Shiva” promo:

As usual for me, of course, it was the song at the end that sent me running to the old PC to do a search on YouTube. Luckily, I was able to find a great video, with lyrics even, of Patty Griffin’s “Not Alone”…

“I am created Shiva, the Destroyer, Shatterer of Worlds. The dead night tiger made whole by the Master of Sinanju. Who is this dog meat that dares challenge me?”

Remo Williams: The Destroyer

I couldn’t resist tossing that last quote in there, just for kicks. The Destroyer is one of my all-time favorite “pulp fiction” series. I’ve probably read at least a hundred of them. They are an absolute laugh riot! 😀

I want ice water.

  1. Saw both NCIS’s. Also got the feeling it’s not over. I also enjoyed my hundred Destroyer books. Sapir was a hermit it the pre-internet days, and drove Murphy crazy. I had hopes when the Remo Willams movie came out, but it got eaten by some big-budget blockbuster, the title of which I don’t recall. I’m waiting for the wife to come up from the den, so that I can show her the sand rose.


    • OMG Archon, you’re a Destroyer fan?!?! Wow, besides myself and the guy who introduced me to them in the early 80s, I don’t think I’ve ever known another one. That is so cool! I suspect that the NCIS folks will wait a couple of episodes, but I have no doubt that both Ziva and Leon will get their revenge. I hope your wife likes the sand rose! 😀
