Storyline

Christmas carolers hear gunshots; a man, smeared with blood, staggers outside and pleads for help; the speaker is Lance, a recently discharged Navy lieutenant and intelligence officer, diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after a tour in Afghanistan; he says that inside his home he saw a shootout, which killed two men; the victims are a Navy ensign (Scott) and a small-time drug dealer (Mancuso); Callen and company investigate. Kensi and Deeks take Lance back to his bungalow, where Lance makes a confession; Eric and Nell find a connection and a number of details; while Kensi and Lance talk and walk, a stranger draws a piece and takes aim, so Kensi opens fire; Eric and Nell get a match on facial recognition; G and Sam pick up some scoop about Lance, and Kensi runs into trouble with Lance, who leaves; the four musketeers attend a meeting at the Santa Monica Pier, where they stop Lance and a bad guy. Kensi finishes putting the pieces together. Written by DocRushing

Goofs

The police may well have released Former Navy Lieutenant Lance Talbot to the NCIS team, but they would DEFINITELY have taken his bloody shirt as evidence in a criminal investigation (even if NCIS took over all aspects of the investigation, NCIs would have taken the shirt too). See more »

Quotes

Kensi Blye: What if we take him back to the crime scene to jog his memory?
Navy Commander Dr. Stanfill: I wouldn't recommend that. There's a strong chance that if he's re-exposed, it'll trigger a major panic episode.
Marty Deeks: So we may *never* know what happened in the house last night?
Navy Commander Dr. Stanfill: This man has no family, and no friends. The trauma he experienced while deployed has driven him into complete isolation. Frankly, forgetting what happened last night may be the best thing for him.

Great Christmas case
22 December 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a great episode to watch on Christmas because not only is it a great NCIS: Los Angeles case but it's also pretty funny. The case is about a double homicide that goes down in a Navy officer touched by PTSD's house. The case has you guessing what happened the whole episode which is awesome. The humor is present, though it's not that funny, Hetty is really funny sometimes. Deeks is great in this episode as well as Callen and Sam. The episode centers on Kensi and it's quite emotional. She ends up solving the case. All in all Disorder should be watched for the awesome case and Christmas spirit rather than the humour.
