Tony and Ziva fly to Paris, pick up a witness (a whistle-blower) for a federal criminal trial, and escort her to Washington, DC. Meanwhile a maid finds the body of a Marine special-ops sergeant in the bathtub in his apartment in Washington; Gibbs and company investigate; McGee finds a safe, so he and Gibbs open it; they find a connection to the whistle-blower. Gibbs and McGee have an interesting chat with a madam, and they meet the fiancé of the witness. Tony and Ziva find a problem with the air marshal aboard their homebound flight, then the witness runs into trouble; Tony and Ziva encounter an uncooperative flight attendant, but they work things out, with the expert help of Gibbs, McGee, Ducky, and Abby. Gibbs gets a sore shoulder. Written by

When Agent DiNozzo uses the EPI pen on the protected witness, he uses it upside down. The EPI-pen has an end with a gray safety cap. The black end is the end that the large needle automatically comes out when the EPI-pen is pushed into the thigh. Also there is no need to manually press the end of the EPI-pen as it is an auto-injector and will activate once pressure is applied to the thigh. See more
