A security guard finds the disemboweled body of an NCIS special agent, Chris Pacci, in an elevator; the Metro PD calls the NCIS to take the lead. Gibbs and the gang investigate; Gibbs feels much personal responsibility, for he had deferred giving the agent some help he had sought with a cold case (one involving a theft of more than $12M from the Navy). Ducky says that the killer first shot the victim in the neck and then cut him open inside the elevator. Co-workers shows irritability due to the involvement and the relationships, but they pick up where Chris left off; Tony uses a new technique for personal surveillance, and he gets a surprise. The gang find the thief and the killer. Written by DocRushing

It just a show. Why can't you enjoy it.
24 October 2016 | by (OZ) – See all my reviews

For a series in its infancy was well- directed and well-written. I could have been written about a straight guy posing as a woman and who really would have cared. I don't know why are you transgender and touchy-feely people got to feel offended. Longest running show as a series. MASH was about the only other show to do so. I have nothing against you all but I'm really getting tired being called racist homophobic all that other crap you call mainstream Americans. Grow up and get a life and just watch the show without complaining. These actors are Americans not Germans, Europeans and damn sure not French so live with it. I think the only person in this episode was Ducky and he might have been British or Canadian.I have no idea and I don't care because it's a good series so quit crying because your little feelings have been hurt.
