Storyline

While riding a water toy, a man, Daniel Su, sustains a gunshot to his chest; he dies on the way to a hospital; he was an electronics engineer who five years ago defected to the USA from North Korea; his own firm two weeks ago won a contract with the US Department of Defense for the creation of a communication system for the Marine Corps; the SecNav expresses interest; Callen and company investigate. G and Sam find the body of Daniel's business partner. Eric and the gang see that Daniel's shooter is an Asian chick; Vance gives her name (Kai) and says that they're in a pile of trouble; Eric learns that she's North Korean. While G and Sam watch, Kai takes a shot at Jimmy, Daniel's brother; Kai and Vance have a chat; Dom goes underground as a cop; Kai opens fire again and takes return fire but gets away again; Abby, in Washington, provides information, which allows Kensi to get a confession; Dom loses a button. [To be concluded in "Endgame" (s7e7 of NCIS).] Written by DocRushing

Trivia

This was the second episode of the series to be filmed and was planned to air as such until early buzz about the appearance of Pauley Perrette and rumors of a story arc involving suspicious dealing about Leon Vance prompted postponement while more viewers caught onto the show. See more »

Goofs

While G and Sam chat at the site of the shooting of Daniel, the two of them talk about speeds and speed limits at marinas generally and the nearby marina in particular; they speak in terms of "miles per hour"; in the context of maritime activities, however, even among civilians and small vessels, the correct term is instead "knots" (which means nautical miles per hour). [Eight m.p.h. equals about seven knots.] See more »

Quotes

NCIS Special Agent G. Callen: Well don't worry about it, Dom. Still some things you have to learn on the job.
NCIS Special Agent Kensi Blye: Yeah, with a knife closely pressed to your ear by a bad guy who is convinced you are a cop.
