While recovering after heart surgery at the Naval Medical Center, Bethesda, Maryland, a commander dies due to an internal flash and the resulting fire without any apparent external source of ignition; Gibbs and company investigate. McGee suggests the possibility of spontaneous human combustion (SHC), Gibbs makes fun of it, Ducky declines to ignore it, and Abby digs it. However, Abby says that it's murder. Tony sees again a friend from Gitmo, then a party in a hotel room leads to a missing officer at a swimming pool. Ducky wines and dines the woman surgeon, but he later becomes disappointed in her. Abby finds a key fact, then the team solves the mystery. Written by

The doctor tells Gibbs and Ducky that the patient went into cardiac arrest and that is the reason she made the explosion happen. If a patient goes into cardiac arrest in a hospital, there are alarms that would go off to alert other personnel and they would come running to help. She never would have been alone to try to resuscitate him and therefore she wouldn't have been able to cause the explosion. See more
Tell me he's asleep.
Dr. Byers saw to that. Gave him Percocet before she left.
If I were her and he called me in at two in the morning, I would have killed him.
