In Rock Creek Park, Washington, DC, a ranger hears gunfire and sees an injured man, who, identified by a thumbprint, is a Marine first lieutenant who became MiA in Afghanistan while on a recon mission six years before; Gibbs and company investigate. The gang talk with the two other Marines on that mission, and McGee and Ziva notice something curious, then a second wife with a different surname shows up. McGee learns that a PI has checked out the victim, so Ziva meets the PI and finds out who hired him. The victim dies of heart failure while in the ICU. Ducky finds an inconsistency. The gang continue to dig, and they eventually find all the pieces and put them together, then they arrest the shooter. Abby becomes a mommy in charge of a special critter with a special future. Sophie dislikes bow ties. Written by
Did You Know?
Abby holds Mortimer the puppy up and says he's going to be a seeing eye dog. His vest clearly shows he's a puppy with the Guide Dogs of America school. That's a different school from the Seeing Eye school. She would have been more accurate saying Mortimer is going to be a guide dog (it's like saying all Kleenexes are tissues but not all tissues are Kleenexes). The terms are often used interchangeably, but Mortimer is going to be a guide dog, not a seeing eye dog (not with that vest). See more

When were you gonna tell me, Duck?
Dr. Donald Mallard
Soon. I thought about having a service, but all of mother's friends pre-deceased her. I was all she had.
