A letter, written in calligraphy and literally sealed with a kiss, arrives at the headquarters of the NCIS, and Tony opens it, thus dispersing a fine white powder; the gang does the drill for such an event. Kate and Tony get a free trip to Bethesda. The postmark and the return address indicate that the item originated in Annapolis, Maryland, the home of the US Naval Academy. Tony's in trouble, and Kate uses a brave and generous tactic; Tony's condition becomes worse and then better, and Kate sleeps nearby. Abby provides answers, and Gibbs and others find the bad lady who sent the SWAK letter. Finally, a witness gives an explanation for a two-year-old rape case at the academy. Written by DocRushing
