The countdown of what I consider to be Michael Weatherly’s 10 best episodes as DiNozzo on “NCIS” continues.

8. “Bikini Wax” (Season 2) — A naval petty officer is murdered before she can compete in a bikini contest. DiNozzo is in his glory interviewing bikini-clad witnesses and later women at a yoga class. His boss Gibbs (Mark Harmon) is trying to get the case solved and trying to keep a leash on DiNozzo which is no small feat.

7. “Boxed In” (Season 3) — DiNozzo and Ziva (Côte de Pablo) find themselves trapped in a shipping container on a pier while investigating a case. While not completely building the foundation for their relationship, this episode got the ball rolling.
