In Arlington, Virginia, across the Potomac River from Washington, DC, Gibbs and company start investigating the slow, painful, tortured death of a Marine, Pfc. Nick Chandler, who had just returned from Kuwait and arrived from Los Angeles. Ziva receives phone calls and a visit by a man named Michael. Vance sends Gibbs to coordinate a joint gig with the NCIS Office of Special Projects in LA due to a suspected link between two cases; Gibbs takes McGee with him. The agent in charge of the OSP is Lara Macy, who's one of Gibbs's exes. Gibbs and McGee check in, then Gibbs meets Callen, an old friend; the OSP bunch confirm the link, involving a weapons dealer named Liam; McGoo loves the toys at the OSP office. Tony and Ziva, back in Washington, conduct a field interview of the two brothers who killed Nick. Gibbs and the OSP gang attend a party with fireworks. Michael, Ziva's visitor, meets Callen, posing as Liam, in LA. [To be continued.] Written by DocRushing

When the NCIS team arrive at the electrocuted victim's body, they are in an under-construction building that overlooks the Potomac River, next to the George Washington Parkway, and just south of the east/west line that runs through the US Capitol and the Washington Monument (as deduced from the background). This would place the building in the same location of Netherlands Carillon, which is located at N Marshall Dr (adjacent to Arlington National Cemetery). See more »


Special Agent G. Callen: I'll just ask Gibbs about what happened.
Special Agent Lara Macy: Yeah, let me know if you do... I want to be there to see him sit you on your ass.
