Tony and Ziva become personally and intensely engaged in their next assignment, an undercover one partly under the covers. The Marine Corps CID in Kuwait has found incriminating documents among the personal effects of two Canadian assassins who died in a car wreck. The documents suggest a plan for the killers to target one or more high officials at the annual Marine Corps birthday ball in Washington, DC, so the NCIS investigates. Gibbs and McGee find that two bad guys are good guys, then Gibbs and Fornell again discuss a problem in their usual conference room. Abby and Chip provide much data, then the team figure out everything and extract Tony and Ziva. Gibbs celebrates alone. Written by
