Storyline

A major power cut spreads over the Tri-state area. NCIS is only one of many facilities affected, so Gibbs's pre-computer methods prove useful again for once, Mcgee and Abby are near nervous break-down. The purpose was to allow a break-in in a 'servers farm' by a gang. But did it include a killed Navy entertainment lieutenant, or was she part of a robbery where nothing was stolen? The answer requires atypically slowly proceeding forensincs as well as a surprising third-party intervention. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

After Tim's camera battery dies, Gibbs pulls a Polaroid SX-70 camera. Gibbs later passes other Polaroid Instamatic cameras out to the team. This will probably be the last emergency where the team can use these 'low-tech' cameras since the film hasn't been manufactured for about 5 years. Some film is left out there (like in Gibbs' bag), but it commands extreme prices. See more »

Goofs

The getaway car is identified as a 1999 Chevrolet Impala. The car shown was a 1994 through 1996 Impala, as Chevrolet did not make an Impala for the 1997 through 1999 model years. A downsized version was introduced for the 2000 model year. It is also unlikely a 14+ year old car would have the original tires on it, negating the method used to identify it. See more »

Quotes

Anthony Paxton: Emma had to do it, right? She didn't have a choice.
Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs: No, she had a choice... That's what makes her a hero.
