At the Naval Station, San Diego, California, Gibbs's sailboat, which he gave to Franks, drifts in, unmanned but laden with two bodies; Vance, Gibbs, Ducky, and a local agent investigate; they check out Franks's home (in Mexico) but find nobody. The boat and the bodies arrive in Washington, DC. The gang identify the dead -- enlisted men, one Army, one Navy, both dishonorably discharged, more recently working as functionaries of a large private military contractor. Franks shows up at Gibbs's house with Franks's daughter-in-law and granddaughter (Gibbs's goddaughter). Gibbs and Franks get a bad surprise; Gibbs thinks and reminisces, then he and Franks have a chat. The daughter-in-law's mother arrives in Washington from Iraq; McGee meets her and takes her to the NCIS headquarters. After a rumble in the dark inside Gibbs's house, Gibbs arrests a bad guy, and Franks, along with his relatives and the grandmother, go to his house, on the beach in Mexico. Written by

Gibbs shows the Director mug shots of the two dead men, one white, one black. But in the next scene, the two bodies in and morgue are both clearly white. See more
