A human body, almost completely consumed, turns up in a burned-out bonfire on a beach near the US Naval Academy, Annapolis, Maryland, after celebrations just before graduation; Gibbs and company investigate; McGee's thumbprint scanner identifies the victim as Special Agent Lara Macy, on personal leave from her post in Marseille, France. Gibbs and McGee visit Lara's mother, who tells them that a man had already rifled through Lara's papers at the family house. Lara had begun to look into the rape of a woman petty officer from a visiting ship in Marseille; the gang continue to do so, and they find the rapists. Abby speaks with Gibbs frankly and empathetically. Gibbs and MAllison have an intense chat, Vance advises her to listen, and Gibbs goes to Mexico, where Franks has run into trouble.

Did You Know?
Petty Officer Burrows appears several times in a dress uniform. The blouse is khaki colored. Prior to 2009, the only enlisted people to wear khakis were Chief Petty Officers E-7 to E-9. Petty Officer Burrows would have been wearing a dress white blouse if summertime or black blouse if winter. However, the Navy enacted a uniform change that took effect in 2009; sailors E-6 and below now wear a khaki top with navy blue (almost black) pants. Petty Officer Burrows' uniform is therefore correct. Further, this is not a dress uniform, it is an everyday working uniform entirely appropriate for the setting. See more
