Storyline

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 DocRushing

Goofs

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 »

One of the worst episodes
1 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode had the worst plane set in a long time (really, how much space is actually available in an airplane aisle or restroom?) The character being guarded was implausible, far below usual NCIS standards for writing & acting. Perhaps it was the direction. The flight stewards should have followed standard protocols to keep some minimum of willing suspension of disbelief rather than just fitting the plot and not knowing how to handle those heavy beverage carts. This episode simply cannot compare with Chimera or Meat Puzzle, two of the best episodes for writing, acting, & pacing - even with what we know are sets! NCIS is usually much better than this.
