A love triangle develops in Norfolk. One member is a teenage girl; the other two are a Navy couple. The husband is a lieutenant (junior grade) who lives and works in Norfolk; the wife is an ensign who has just returned to Norfolk aboard her ship from a deployment in the Mediterranean Sea. The wife discovers the affair, and she insists that her husband break off with the girl in front of herself. During the meeting a fight takes place, and the mistress dies. Mac and Bud prosecute the wife in a court-martial, and an outside civilian lawyer (one of Mac's professors in law school) defends her. The SecNav has authorized live TV coverage of the trial, which creates interference and confusion but also lends some surprising help. Meanwhile Harm discovers an unusual explanation while investigating a case of apparent suicide aboard an aircraft carrier at sea. Further, Sydney's son asks and gets a favor of the admiral, and Bud and Harriet ask a question of Mac. Written by
