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
Did You Know?
When McGee explains Little Orphan Annie to Ziva, he says she has "curly red hair, no eyeballs". Little Orphan Annie did have eyeballs, what she didn't have were pupils drawn in her eyeballs. See more
Special Agent Jethro Gibbs
Those two men you killed, why were they after you?
Damn, Probie. I was hoping you could tell me.
