A woman Naval aviator narrowly escapes an explosion of her car on a parking lot (although the family poodle does not) four days before her release from active duty and separation from the Navy; she was a target of terrorist activity due to her official behavior in Afghanistan. The FBI seeks to solve the crime, and the NCIS seeks not only to protect the intended victim and her family but also to solve the crime. Abby does good work and produces good results; she also tells Gibbs that a certain woman FBI special agent has the hots for him. A second car explodes but with differences, and Ducky demonstrates an autopsy. The FBI find the terrorists, and the NCIS works out some more details. Written by DocRushing
