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?


In the aerial shot of the aircraft carrier listed as "the Seahawk", you can see the name "John C. Stennis" written across the aft. The actual ship being filmed, the U.S.S. John C. Stennis is not the "Seahawk" as reported. http://www.navsource.org/archives/02/74.htm See more »


In the opening scene, when Ziva looks in the window and see the corpse, the corpse is visibly breathing. See more »


NCIS Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: So, let me guess. You guys caught a bad case of "DiNozzo-itis", had Vance send you down south?
Ziva David, Mossad Liaison: "DiNozzo-itis". Sounds venereal.
