A real-estate agent, while showing a recently renovated house, discovers the decomposing body of a Marine in a recliner chair in the living room; Gibbs and company investigate. The body is that of a lance corporal stationed at Quantico; he disappeared six months before, when his unit went to Iraq. The team believe that the body had been buried (directly into the ground) and exhumed; McGee finds the place. Gibbs loses something, and the team find two fiancées; the two meet, and they vigorously exchange views. Abby suggests that they need to find a third woman, so they do; McGee introduces a fourth woman, who is the third fiancée. Teamwork produces the necessary answers. Written by DocRushing
