Gibbs and Tony follow EJ and her team to a nearly vacant building; they find that the P2P murderer has killed Levin, seriously injured Cade, and kidnapped EJ; Gibbs pursues the suspect and EJ; he finds her, left to suffocate. McGeek traces a phone number to CI-Ray (Ziva's boyfriend). Ducky, with help from Gibbs, explains the changes in the MO of the killer. From Levin's left forearm EJ secretly removes a small object. Ziva tries to intercept Ray, but Cobb, the suspect, intercepts and kidnaps her; later, while Gibbs, Tony, McGee, and EJ are present inside a hotel room, Cobb arrives, enters, and surrenders, but he refuses to tell where he put Ziva. However, Abby provides clues to a place, where the gang plus Ray find and rescue Ziva, who gives explanations. Back at the HQ, Cobb escapes with two hostages; Gibbs and others follow; a confrontation ends the career of the P2P killer. The SecNav resigns, and his successor gives Tony a highly sensitive and classified task. Written by

When they are giving honors at the cemetery, it is apparent the M16/AR15 rifles are not actually being fired, but just put in position. When the rapport is heard, the bolt carriers do not move. During such ceremonies blanks are fired and usually with enough gas pressure to cycle the weapon. Even if they used a less powerful blank, they would need to cycle the bolt manually by noticeably pulling the charging handle, which they don't. See more
