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

About half-way through, a body is shown on the autopsy table while the power is out. She is dead and being autopsied, however you can see her breathing. See more »
