Holiday job
18 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A double murder puts the NCIS crew on the trail of a man (Peter Coyote) long thought dead due to a dissolute life. When that man finally surfaces, the crew has to go and see his former wife to let her know he is very much alive. She wants nothing to do with him, but their daughter certainly does. Meanwhile, Gibbs has his doubts about the guy's guilt. While everyone except Ducky works on Christmas Eve to solve the case and possibly save the life of an innocent man, Abby takes it upon herself to try to bring daughter and father, who is in a holding room, together. Even though pop has made it abundantly clear he doesn't want to see his daughter. Coyote is great as the haunted dad.
