While investigating at a deepwater port at Hampton Roads in Virginia, Tony and Ziva encounter unexpected criminal activity, and they become involved in a gunfight and trapped inside an ocean-shipping container; there they discover crates said to contain explosives but found to contain counterfeit US currency. Gibbs and McGee go to the port and look for them; they find evidence of their recent presence, including the body of one bad guy. Ducky joins the search, and Abby gives much help. A truck moves the container to a different place; Tony reaches out, and Abby hears. The port-security guy shows up, Gibbs and McGee follow the money, and everything works out. Written by DocRushing

McGee explains to Gibbs that while Ziva and Tony's cell signal isn't getting out, is shouldn't affect the phone's GPS chips.
