Storyline

Gibbs, Tony, McGee, and Ducky investigate the death of a petty officer aboard a Naval vessel; later Tony and McGee screen potential replacements for Ziva; nobody in the gang has heard from Ziva, so Gibbs, Tony, McGee, and Abby all start sniffing and digging around; they trace her to a Jordanian cargo ship, which sank in a storm off the coast of Somalia, reportedly with no survivor. Tony urges Gibbs to stop Saleem, then the team makes a case to Gibbs and Vance, who reluctantly approves an "investigative" mission to Somalia, where (as a part of a plan) Saleem captures Tony and McGee, to whom Saleem administers a truth serum. Saleem also reunites Tony and McGee with Ziva, whom Saleem has tortured. Gibbs reverts to his sniper mode and gets out the three musketeers, then they all return to Washington, DC, where they, emotionally drained and thoroughly exhausted, receive a rousing welcome.

Trivia

Most of Abbey's tattoos are Pauley Perrette's real tattoos. Only the spider web on her neck and the cross on her back are fake. The cross tattoo is only seen in the first 6 seasons. Latter on, Perrette gets a flower tattoo on her back. This is first seen on Abbey in "Truth or Consequences" (#7.1). See more »

Goofs

Towards the end, Gibbs walks into the building where the team was being held captive, just a few seconds after being shown sniping from a hillside more than a mile away. There is no way he could have covered that distance in that short a time, even with a vehicle. See more »

A unique and enjoyable episode.
22 September 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This show is so versatile! I love how they gave this season premiere episode it's own unique voice. (Made all the better in that the 'voice' belonged to -very- Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo.) They left us to hang over the summer hiatus, worrying for Ziva's safety, and this episode manages to extend and increase that worry. But as always, the team pulls together and manages to make things all work out. My one complaint is that there wasn't enough of Abby and Ducky, I know they're meant to be supporting characters, but nevertheless they add such depth and colour to the show. All in all, an excellent premiere episode, I can't wait to see more!
