Belgravian defense minister Andor Gorgova survives a bomb attack in his Balkans capital, thanks to his US Marines bodyguard, who is killed. The State Department therefore hosts the signing of a controversial treaty and offers protection to his party, assigning to NCIS his headstrong daughter Adriana, who keeps her identity secret except for study friend Judd Stern and diplomacy professor Carl Fleming. She seems to flirt with McGee after he saves her PC, but is kidnapped on his watch, and was in on the stunt to help prevent the treaty being signed. But the demands are changed, for a macabre reason. Gibbs conducts his own informal investigation besides the FBI, which his sole jurisdiction. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Near the start of the episode, DiNozzo STAPLES the edited image of Abby onto his cubical wall. But later when Abby notices the picture and DiNozzo removes it, it is TAPED on instead, you can clearly see the tape on the back of the image, even putting his hand over it to hide it. See more »


Adriana Gorgova: What's with McGee?
[DiNozzo chuckles]
Ziva David: What do you mean?
Adriana Gorgova: Is there a = Mrs. McGee?
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: [DiNozzo chuckles] What a concept.
Ziva David: No. He's not married.
Adriana Gorgova: Girlfriend?
Ziva David: Not that I know of.
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: Okay, what am I missing here, huh? We talking about the same guy - Timothy McGee? The Icabod Crane who speaks in algorythms. And looks like he has some kind of permanently frumpy expression on his face.

I continue to find Vance to be an annoyance. He does not compliment the shows excellent plots. Vance just seems to be added as an irritant and the character does not follow logical progression into the team. He needs to be replaced. Perhaps he could be shipped off to NCIS Los Angeles? This would allow a new opening in the shows cast. The antagonists in the show must continue to be the "Bad Guys" not the main characters. We viewers must have the luxury of knowing that, the unlikable characters will soon be gone,if not this episode then the next. Development of both McGee's and Tony's personal life would be a good direction to take.They both would have some friends outside work who could make return appearances.This is the finest drama on television in my opinion. I personally want it to continue at that caliber.
