Storyline

In Morocco a bomb explodes inside a nightclub while Ziva sings; in Washington, DC, Gibbs and his new gang investigate the death of a petty officer, Vargo, who died of a gunshot in his house trailer, without detection, four and a half months before. The team learn that a former buddy and shipmate, Roberts, died in the explosion in Morocco, and that Ziva sustained injuries; Gibbs speaks by telephone with Ziva, who says that Vance had tipped her about Roberts, who apparently was the target of the bomb. Vance tells Gibbs that an NCIS agent had blackmailed Vargo before he disappeared. After another shooting, Vance, Gibbs, and McGee reach a solution, and Ziva gladly returns to the NCIS.

Trivia

Abby tells Gibbs that it has been 126 days that "Tony, McGee and Ziva have been gone". That is also the number of days between the original U.S. air dates of the season 5 finale and this episode. See more »

Goofs

Where the team examine two personnel records on the plasma screen, the records describe each of two sailors as both E-4 and PO2, whereas those two terms are inconsistent with each other. E-4 equates to PO3, not PO2, and PO2 equates to E-5, not E-4. See more »

Quotes

NCIS Director Leon Vance: The reason I broke up your team, Gibbs, was because whoever was blackmailing Vargo was an NCIS agent.
NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs: Not one of mine.
NCIS Director Leon Vance: No. From what Vargo told me, I narrowed it down to three agents. Only reason I broke up your team was so I form a new one.
[turns on display with Gibbs's new team]
NCIS Director Leon Vance: So you can help me find out which one of these three is betraying their country.

Is Jenny really, truly, dead?
30 September 2008 | by (Newcastle, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Paranoia strikes!

In the opening credits, Lauren Holly is still being treated as a full cast member, although Rocky Carroll (the new director?) isn't.... ISTR that Lauren Holly didn't get full billing until somewhere towards the end of Season 3, so that doesn't mean that Leon won't go on being the new director. But although Kate appeared in 'Kill Ari, part I', she was credited as a special guest star. Here we have Lauren Holly NOT appearing, but retaining her full credit.

It's not just a replay of the old titles because at least some of the cast (e.g. Ziva, in her slinky cabaret dress) has new cut scenes.

Sky played the season 6 sneak preview immediately following the season 5 climax. I noticed that we never saw Jenny in the morgue (although we got to see Kate, bullet hole and all, in 'Kill Ari.'
