Storyline

Just before the Naval Academy's grand graduation, NCIS special agent Lara Macy's corpse is found in a campfire on Annapolis beach. The agent, officially on leave from Marseille, had her throat slit. She was apparently tailing petty officer 2nd Class Kaylen Burrows who, according to Macy's laptop, was an uncooperative rape victim. Suspect college boy Tyler, son of DC contractor Randall Hammond, was just roughed up by men in a US Navy van. The Hammonds claim Tyler saved Macy from Seamen George Capetanos and Karl Wachter. Gibbs knew Macy years ago and can no longer avoid his Mexican past catching up. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Abby Sciuto: Look, I know that Special Agent Macy's murder is super-important. And I know that you guys have a long history together going back to when you were a Marine. And not a lot of people know that, but Gibbs. We really need to talk about Mexico.

Deception
8 March 2011 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

The second part of a four-episode arc builds upon the emotional torque of the first one that centered on Abby and Gibbs' daughter - father-like relationship. Now, the momentum increases as pieces start to come together and things start to look rather bleak. So bleak, that the resolution of the previous episode's cliffhanger has to be postponed. Again, the case of the week works well together with the arc plot, and like in the first part, we get a fan-pleasing guest star.

The case of the week turns out to be a rather complex one, which is a definite plus. Meanwhile, the arc plot delivers turns which, unless the writers make the characters forget about them in Season 8, will affect the inter-character dynamic permanently. Also, turns out the big picture is not what it has seemed to be. Whether this was planned all the way from the beginning of Season 7 or whether it is a case of Retconning does not matter: the result works. And then, as a counterpart for the previous episode, the episode ends up on an action-based cliffhanger, as opposed to an emotional one. Great stuff, another 8/10.
