Navy intelligence officer Lieutenant Lance Talbot, discharged with post traumatic shock after his Marine protectors were killed while he was recruiting Afghan tribal leaders for pacification, is completely traumatized by a shooting at his home. Talbot's male nurse, an ensign, was killed, as well as drug dealer Mancuso. Later Lance, having opened up to Kensi who has comparably ex-trauma experience, remembers to have shot both, who were involved in drug trading with pills withheld from military trauma patients. An attempt against his life fails. His own past, including abuse charges against his Armenian mob-remarried ex, proves surprisingly dark. Written by
