In USNavy hospital Bethesda, USS Kennedy security officer Commander Michael Dornan went up in flames, apparently spontaneous combustion while recovering from heart surgery after a Persian Gulf tour. Ducky and Abby soon prove it was murder by igniting his oxygen till it exploded. DiNozzo is delighted to be sent on-board the Kennedy, where NCIS Special Agent Paula Cassidy, a former flirt of his, confesses she accepted to 'give a break' by not officially reporting up on Dornan's disciplinary zeal resulting in tension with many men, notably young Ensign Evan Hayes, which he bullied as 'revenge' on father captain Hayes, who ironically is on bad terms with Evan, a sensitive kid who didn't want to join the Navy and is missing since the murder, ultimately found with his high-school swimming coach Morgan in a suicidal mood with a tragic twist... Meanwhile DiNozzo finds the detonating trick which provides a 12 minutes delay, and Ducky's autopsy follow-up proves painfully relevant... Written by

If I were her and he called me in at two in the morning, I would have killed him.
