Local cops, acting on a tip, find the body of Marine Pfc. Riggs, who was UA; Gibbs and company investigate; Palmer finds two marks on Riggs's neck. Meanwhile on a public street three grim-faced Hoovers demand that Abby go with them; a suit delivers her to Jones, an official at a well funded lab at a hospital for work in a clandestine and highly classified program. While checking out Riggs's car, Gibbs and Ziva find evidence suggesting that he was not an intended victim but rather a bad guy. Gibbs realizes that Abby has taken the place of Heller, the man who was Riggs's target; McGee and Ziva find Heller, who gives explanations. A patient disappears, and a nurse dies. Tony finds Abby; he and Ziva return her to the office. The gang start putting the pieces together; Jones disappears, but they catch him. Gibbs and Jones have a chat, and Abby helps Gibbs with his interrogation. The team finish putting the pieces together, then they tie up the loose ends. Written by DocRushing

Did You Know?


Abby's rule no. 1: Do not lie to Abby! See more »


While discussing Nurse Dunstan with Gibbs, Abby describes her as "on call", whereas the correct term is "on duty". Dunstan was present and on duty at the time of the drawing and processing of each blood sampling in question; she was not merely "on call". See more »


Officer Ziva David: [Slight chuckle] This is nice. Be able to work without Tony's incessant babbling. It's almost as if he cannot go on for more than 30 seconds without hearing the sound of his own voice. You know the truly amazing thing is that he fails to realize just how irritating he is to those around him.
Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs: Ziva.
Officer Ziva David: Yes, Gibbs?
Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs: Babbling.
Officer Ziva David: Oh.
