Storyline

In Washington, DC, a pair of Metro cops stop a Russian-speaking driver for a traffic violation; the driver unsuccessfully reaches for a snub-nosed revolver, recently fired; promptly a third car crashes into the cop car; the last person, a Navy chief petty officer, while dying, wrote the letters NCIS in his own blood; a bag of quarters spill onto the pavement from the last car; predictably, Gibbs and company investigate. Abby produces good stuff, but Ducky runs into a bad problem. Gibbs calls Franks in Mexico, and he lends a hand; then an official from the DHS makes a strange request. Negotiations and deals ensue; Gibbs, Franks, and others wrap up things. Written by DocRushing

Great addition to the show
12 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The addition of Mike Franks, a seasoned professional from the "old school" was truly refreshing. His interaction and interpretation of current NCIS procedures gave a breath-of-life to the segment. Have seen him before in similar roles and he seems to invariably bring a sense of "an honorable,get things done, dark character" who people like to identify with. Sort of an everyman's hero. Would like to see more of him. Of course, I realize that at 60 years of age, I may not be the focus group you are seeking to address, but his presence does give credence to the fact that younger is not better and there is more than one way to skin a cat!
