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.

[Tony laughs in realization
Really? You wanted to get arrested. We didn't screw anything up for him. You're a new face on the street. What's the best way to earn instant bona fides than uh - getting pinched?
A Navy guy. I don't like getting played. Having said that, well played. Very Donnie Brasco, actually.
