Aboard a Turkish-flag cargo ship in a port at Hampton Roads in Virginia, an explosion occurs, killing one person and leaving Gibbs comatose with burns, abrasions, and a concussion; EMTs take him to the emergency room at the Naval Hospital in Portsmouth; Jen and Abby follow to the hospital; the rest of the team investigate. A Navy medical officer recognizes Gibbs from Kuwait in 1991, when he treated him after an injury. Abby and Ziva express a difference to each other; Tony starts to sound like Gibbs, and others notice. Gibbs remains in a coma; eventually Ducky, a neurologist, and a nurse welcome him back; however, Gibbs does not recognize or remember Ducky. [To be continued.] Written by
