Near the Marine Corps Base, Quantico, Virginia, a Korean wife of a Marine sergeant finds the bodies of two other such Korean wives shot to death; Gibbs and company investigate. Gibbs comments on the evidence of an unhappy marriage, and Ducky says that the murders appear to be executions. The husband of one victim is in Iraq; the gang find the other husband with a sidearm at the E Club at the base. While the team continues, the surviving Korean wife disappears from her bedroom, apparently by kidnapping; however, they find the missing wife, then not only identify the shooter but also learn about the background of the shooter and the changes of heart of that person.
