A boat carrying alone the body of a commander in the US Navy runs aground on a beach in northern Virginia; two other bodies show up not far away. The NCIS gang investigate all three deaths; with the collaboration of DEA Special Agent Kent Fuller and FBI Special Agent T.C. Fornell, they first consider drug involvement, pursuing several leads and using some inventive questioning techniques. The two civilian bodies bore waist packs stuffed with counterfeit bills, which Kate traces through a friend in another federal agency; the origin of the phony money leads the NCIS to a terrorist connection. They deduce an imminent attack by the terrorists, and Gibbs leads his bunch to intervene in the commission and forestall it. Written by

Near the end of the episode, the team makes reference to the Northeast blackout of 2003. Kate states that the blackout occurred on August 15th, but it actually started on August 14th. Kate also says that "all the Northeast and most of Canada was dark." Only about ten million people were without power in Canada during the blackout. Given that the population of Canada was roughly thirty-one million in 2003, ten million is not "most" of Canada, especially when you take into consideration that only one province (Ontario) was directly affected by the blackout.
