Storyline

A Marine gunnery sergeant, Atlas, has failed to report for duty after a weekend; he's a technician in explosive-ordnance disposal (EOD), one of a handful of people with a critical qualification, so his unauthorized absence (UA) brings in the NCIS. Gibbs and company track him, and they find a newspaper reporter with some helpful information; meanwhile Atlas is shackled to a wall inside a small concrete-block room with a decomposing human body. Abby learns that three other Marines also have disappeared from EOD units in the past eight years, and she finds a pattern; Tony encounters Atlas. Abby, Gibbs, and Kate connect the dots, then Gibbs and Kate find Tony and Atlas. Written by DocRushing

Trivia

In the bar, DiNozzo asks for sarsaparilla. This is a call back to the episode Minimum Security, where this was the drink Gibbs permitted Tony to have while on duty. See more »

Goofs

Vanessa, the waitress who was the only survivor of the Phillipina women trapped in the container, had no decipherable accent. As she was an adult at the time she came to the States, this is highly unlikely. See more »
