While Gibbs grudgingly accepts orders to host Ziva as Mossad liaison to strengthen the coalition against terror, Tony rather enjoys her boy-like side. The opening of a rubber-sealed iron Civil War grave chest surprisingly reveals the corpse of modern marine staff sergeant Warren Sorrow, a Marine security guard instructor in Quantico, with dog-tag and a cellphone in the box. He was shot with a period gun, but killed by burial alive. He seemed to be dialing, but actually text-messaged about a safety-box and a Manasses battle reenactment site. Ducky is visited by a vague acquaintance, Smithsonian forensic anthropologist Dr. Elaine Burns, who contributes archaeological expertise, but there is more in past and present. Written by
