Nine students holding a nightly campfire beach party are surprised by what sounds like fireworks, then a speedboat crashing into them, full of shot holes. The boys are delighted they can skip yet another lecture on sexual harassment when Navy Lt. Commander Farrell's body washes up, also shot-hole-littered, just as two drug dealers carrying $100 bills, two miles further, at Fort Story. The NCIS investigates in collaboration with DEA Agent Kent Fuller. They soon find out which drug gangs are involved. The money proves good forgery, possibly the motive if used to trick drug suppliers, and brings FBI Agent T.C. Fornell on the case as well, who informs them the bills were spent by 9-11 terrorists.

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.
