Storyline

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 Agent Callen and Agent Gibbs are talking at the beach, Gibbs mentions that it is 10:00 in the morning, which is why they are not drinking at a bar, but the sun is setting over the ocean, meaning that it is late afternoon on the West Coast. See more »

Quotes

Operational Psychologist Nate Getz: It's called a legend. It's a word coined by the Stasi, the East German Secret Police during the cold war. Now their idea was to create a cover so deep it could stand up to any scrutiny: passports, documents, work papers, even family histories. And none of it true. All a... a legend.
