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

When Tony is in isolation and having severe respiratory distress and struggling for each breath, they have him on oxygen via nasal cannula. He needs high flow oxygen and it can only be given by a non-rebreathing mask. This may be due to the pending conversation, however considering the amount of dyspnea and cyanosis (as mentioned by Ducky), there would be little option. He is also lying supine. He has been diagnosed with pneumonia, which is fluid infiltrate (sporadic fluid) in both lungs. Considering the amount of implied severity, he would need to sit up. Fluid is affected by gravity and seeks it's own level. Considering the potential amount of fluid, lying supine could potentially obstruct the bronchial tree. Most who experience this degree of severity are more comfortable sitting bolt upright. See more
