That question actually hit my feels. I’m gonna do the best I can to explain.

Look, Kate was an amazing character and I loved her more than I could ever put into words. In the pilot, the present her to us as a high qualified agent who takes no one’s bulls**t.

Her chemistry with Gibbs is another thing I adore but that’s another story. So yes, she did her job really well and was proud of it, and given that it was 2003 and there were lots of men there, that’s one thing you gotta admire. Let’s take a moment now to appreciate her gorgeous smile:

The following episodes show how she started to get used to NCIS and Gibbs’ way of doing things. Remember when he was like

Plus, she got on well with the others (Tony, Mcgee, Abby, Gibbs, Ducky). She formed special relationships with everyone.

Another reason for loving her was that she was very kind hearted and always thought the best of everyone (which sometimes led to some people backstabbing her, like 1x03 and 1x10). Bottom line is, she was a really nice person, even if her job meant dealing with all those deaths and murderers. She never stopped smiling and always encouraged her teammates and took care of them.

She also didn’t lack badassery.

She was serious at important times, even when her teammates weren’t.

Also this:

She was willing to make sacrifices for her teammates, or more accurately, family. Remember when she stayed with Tony even if he had the plague to keep him company?

Or when she jumped in front of a bullet for Gibbs?

She was never afraid to speak up, not even to superiors from other agencies.

And she was good with kids too:

Basically I have a lot of respect for that character and I am really hurt about what they did to her (s2 changes, 2x23) which only makes me wanna protect her even more.

And the reason I’ve been blogging about her these past days was that yesterday (May 24th) was the 12th anniversary of her death and I haven’t gotten over it yet. I don’t think I ever will because she was just too awesome.

Tl;dr: Caitlin Todd was a splendid character with numerous qualities who deserved much better and I will always love her.

Imagine having to go undercover with Tony as a couple after having an argument.

You fought the urge to scowl as you sat next to Tony. “Am I wrong or did they only give us this assignment to piss us off?” you muttered under your breath.

Tony continued to stare straight ahead. “No, you got that right.”

“Glad to know we’re part of such a mature, sophisticated and professional team,” you grumbled sarcastically, trying to smooth out the wrinkles in your pants so you had something to do with your hands.

“It really is comforting to know,” Tony agreed with a sigh.

“At least we can bond again over hating them.”

“Does this mean we’re agreeing to a truce until we can find a way to get back at them for this?” Tony asked, the slightest hint of a smile tugging his lips as he glanced sideways at you.

You laughed softly, “Yeah. Sounds good to me.”

“You know I love you, right?”

“I love you too, you stupid idiot.”
