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

Goofs

Vanessa the waitress is at the nightclub talking to Tony and getting her photos done whilst he's photographing the crime scene. It then jumps back to the missing marine who then starts shouting at the eyes looking through the peep hole. Back to Gibbs and we see Tony and Vanessa walk down the stairs of the nightclub. There's nothing to say she has an accomplice but how does she ditch Tony to look through the peep hole to come back to Tony. She couldn't have. See more »
