In this show I believe there are many situations where there are indications of 
interpersonal conflict. In the episode that I watched, it touched on quite a few conflicts that were 
very easy to catch after reading the chapters. As we saw in Chapter 8, extending social support to 
another, can backfire and make things worse if the person in need does not view it as being 
helpful or sees it as a form of over support (Bevan, Sole, 2014). There is one specific case in

 Throughout the 
beginning and middle of the episode they bicker and fail to communicate effectively leaving both 
parties mad towards the other. Upon finding his father's friends home they are shocked to find 

out he’s not there and was taken by an ambulance a few hours earlier. They weren’t able to get 
any help figuring out what ambulance it was besides what color it was. Gibbs tells his father that 
they might not be able to find him and his father gets really upset and tells Gibbs’ to just take 
him home. 
At the morgue, Gibbs and Ducky (Gibbs’ best friend) talk about how painful it is to 
watch a parent age. Gibbs doesn't understand how to handle the fact that his father lied about 
very important matters. Ducky encourages him to keep trying to talk with his dad. Then Gibbs 
and his father sit down and discuss everything openly even though it seems very argumentative. I 
think that’s just the kind of characteristics they have when they communicate. When Gibbs tells 
his father that he knows there was no Walter Beck, (the friend his father wants him to meet) in 
his squadron, Gibbs’ father tells him that Walter was German. Gibbs is furious that his father
