The Virginia SP calls the NCIS about a plastic-wrapped body wearing a dress-blue uniform of a three-star admiral; EJ and her team have left town, so Gibbs and company investigate; Tony recognizes the victim as his former partner as a homicide detective for the Baltimore PD; Tony experiences flashbacks (which include Gibbs) from his time as a city kitty. The MO appears to be that of the P2P killer except in one detail, which leads Duckman to contact Gibbs about two serious matters. Abby points to one suspect, so her three musketeers bust him, but he proves to be not the right one. The gang persist, and they eventually figure out both the most recent killer and the motive for the killing. The flashbacks show the path of Tony from Baltimore to the Navy Yard.

Did You Know?
At one point Abby says to Gibbs "xiexie" or "syesye" (depending on the romanization system used), which are the correct syllables for the common expression in Mandarin Chinese for "thank you"; unfortunately, however, Abby does not use the correct falling tone (the fourth tone); instead she utters those syllables essentially tonelessly.
