Michael Locke
Michael Hagerty ...
Andrew 'Andy' Hoffman
Navy PO Kevin Massey
Mia Lee ...


The NCIS is closing up on Marine Andrew 'Andy' Hoffman, a serial killer of women, before local police detective Steve Rosetti's nose. Hoffman catches on while Ziva is with him undercover as Gina, but she struggles free and shoots him with his own gun. An MO anomaly and a fingerprint indicate there must be an accomplice. Ziva forgets her 'trauma' in bed with original suspect Michael Locke, whose former girlfriend Devon fits the profile of the sixth victim Abby discovers to exist from blood traces on the knife, so Andy's partner may still be killing. Another surprising link is discovered, another avenues of suspicion is explored. Written by KGF Vissers
