Storyline

A fight in an alley behind a bar leaves one Marine corporal dead and another critically ill; the gang investigate; Gibbs says that the event was an ambush, not a bar brawl. The survivor is from Gibbs's hometown; Gibbs and Ducky agree that the survivor may have been the target of the attack. McGee and Ziva go with Gibbs to the town, where they meet Gibbs's father and others; they learn that everyone in town believes that the Marine died four years ago. Flashbacks abound; Gibbs finds lies and liars. McGee and Ziva gather evidence, but it disappears, so Tony and Abby join them, and they get more evidence; then they all put the pieces together and nail the bad guys. Written by DocRushing

My favourite episode by far
23 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As an avid viewer of NCIS for a long time now, I have shared experiences and relationships with the characters. I enjoy the episodes where characters pasts are dragged up, and I think it is good to see more about where Gibbs has come from. The touching story of him meeting his first wife (Shannon) is heartfelt, and the relationship between Gibbs and his father is different than the relationship held between himself and other characters, although, Gibbs attitude is exactly what any long term fan would expect. Mark Harmon is able to play the role very well, as in all episodes, and the plot twist is very good. This episode defines a series that I can only describe as perfect.

This is my favourite TV show, and this is my favourite episode.
