A lieutenant appears to jump overboard from USS Seahawk (CVN-65) at sea; Tony, the agent afloat, reports to Gibbs, who sends McGee and Ziva to interview the wife or widow ashore; they find her body in her living room. Tony investigates in Cartagena, Colombia, where the officer supposedly joined the ship, and he finds the body; Tony tells Gibbs that the carrier has a security problem (the presence of the person who impersonated the lieutenant to board the ship). Gibbs and Ziva join Tony in Cartagena, then they all fly to the ship at sea; they continue to investigate; they find the answers and catch the bad guy. Tony returns to the home office with Gibbs and Ziva, and he stays. Written by DocRushing

Did You Know?


When McGee talks to Vance about examining the USS Seahawk's security computer mirror, Vance is in MTAC looking at a satellite view of that ship. The coordinates are 14º30.23'N, 74º58.16'W, which places it in the Carribean Sea about halfway between Columbia and Jamaica. This is consistent with where it's supposed to be in this story.

The USS Seahawk has the hull number CVN-65 (carrier vessel nuclear), as seen on the caps that some of the crew wear. There is no actual aircraft carrier called the USS Seahawk; this is actually the hull number for the USS Enterprise. The exterior shots of the ship are, however, clearly not the Enterprise but a newer, Nimitz-class carrier. In the first establishing shot in this episode, the hull number painted on the deck of the carrier is 74, corresponding to the Nimitz-class USS John C. Stennis. See more »
