The Gibbs gang joins Hollis to investigate the death of a Marine captain due to a harpoon through his torso in the study of his home in family housing at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, an Army post. The victim worked under an Army major on an inter-agency task force at the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). The NCIS seizes and keeps the victim's laptop computer, but the DIA sends a techie to shadow Abby while she works on it; Abby starts frozen, but she thaws quickly. The team find a network of love interests, including one of Gibbs's exes. Tony and Ziva find a partial print, Abby cracks a song, and McGee cracks a code, which allows the bunch to nab the bad guy and Abby to slug him. Written by DocRushing

Did You Know?


Col. Mann is understandably angry that Gibbs concealed information about his fourth marriage (and the death of his first wife and daughter) from her when she learns of this fact from Ducky. In the episode Sandblast when Gibbs and Col. Mann first met Col Mann did make one reference to Gibbs having four marriages, however there was no way for her to know of more than his three divorces, and that is accepted to be a scripting mistake.

Dr. Donald 'Ducky' Mallard: They weren't married long.
Army Lt. Col. Hollis Mann: Fourteen months. Top of my class in interrogation.
Dr. Donald 'Ducky' Mallard: Well remind me to ask for a highly qualified lawyer should I ever be interrogated by you.
Army Lt. Col. Hollis Mann: I don't want to be another one of his mistakes, Ducky. I know he's been married three times.
[awkward pause]
Army Lt. Col. Hollis Mann: *More* than three times?
Dr. Donald 'Ducky' Mallard: Perhaps I should get that lawyer now.
