Gibbs continues to concentrate on the unknown terrorist who shot him and escaped from the morgue; he does so with extreme determination to the extent of obsession and frustration. Meanwhile the anonymous bad guy makes a plan, buys some hardware, and gathers several friends; then he seeks to intercept the PotUS and the PM of Israel. The bad guy also arranges a new running friend for Tony, and he allows Kate to spot him while he rides a bike; Tony pursues the runner, and Kate tries to pursue the bike, but that works out poorly, for she winds up on a farm in the boondocks. McGee finds a face and a name, then details and explanations. Gibbs finally meets and talks with his quarry. Written by
