The Virginia SP calls the NCIS about a decomposing body identified as that of an NCIS agent from Norfolk; because of the MO, Vance sends EJ and her team to investigate; Gibbs and his team follow them and pitch in; Vance directs Gibbs to support EJ. Franks too shows up (after Gibbs calls him), so he and Gibbs talk. The P2P killer appears to have changed his MO somewhat. Gibbs and Tony find and chat with Trent Kort, a CIA agent. An anonymous person provides a video record of the most recent murder; Gibbs offers information to EJ; Kort gives a spilling briefing; McGee gets a lead on the video clip. Franks talks with Gibbs in his basement, then Franks steps out into a rainstorm, unexpectedly meets the prime suspect, and engages him. EJ and her team check out the building from which the e-mailed video clip originated; EJ encounters the suspect. [To be continued.] Written by DocRushing

One of the Best Shows with Longevity
20 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is and has been one of the best shows on television, today and in the past. While so many shows rely upon gory photos, special effects and such, this cast is shown to have very strong, independent and differing personalities and every show relies upon these actors. The show has been on long enough to allow for the past of the characters to begin to come out. It adds depth and character. The writing is superb as has been the casting. This is one show I try never to miss or at least I have it set to record so that I can be sure NOT to miss watching it. With the writing, the actors, the story line, and all the rest that make this such a quality show, one would think that other shows and networks could figure out the formula instead of just attempting to put on a shallow carbon copy of this show.
