While making a sales call, a telemarketer overhears an intrusion, a confrontation, and a fight, which appears to end with the murder of the prospect, PO Lambert in the Navy. One local detective asks Tony for his shoe size, and another one comments on Kate's eyes; Kate speaks about deja vu. The Metro PD turns it over to the NCIS. Abby and McGee work together in her lab while Gibbs waits and watches, Kate adds another clue, and Gibbs says that Lambert faked his own murder. Abby finds a connection, and the gang pursue it, then a Metro detective finds Lambert's body in Rock Creek Park in Washington, DC. Gibbs makes a new friend, but he has some uneasy and uncertain feelings. Written by DocRushing

Did You Know?


Gibbs suggests that DNA profiling was first used in investigating the murder of Giovanni Falcone in Carpaci in 1992. However, its first use was in 1984 after its discovery by Alec Jefferies of the University of Leicester in England, catching the double murderer Colin Pitchfork. See more »


At the end of this story Gibbs speaks of a case involving the FBI in Sicily and mentioned that this was the first case to convict using DNA evidence. The first case to convict (and actually also find someone innocent) was actually in Narborough, England. Gibbs was maybe talking about the first US case, rather than the first worldwide case. (Read "The Blooding" by Joseph Wambaugh for the facts.) See more »
