Never-married Marine Sergeant Heather Dempsey, a bomb squad Afghanistan veteran, reports having shot an unidentified intruder at her base home. Elaborate forensics determine it's Glover Reese, a hired gun who removed his own fingerprints. He had a classified GI cellphone, which Fornell reveals traces to to FBI deputy director Gary Tolin, who seemed to be hiding an adulterous affair with Dempsey. She is nearly killed by a bomb aboard the USS Barry, moored on ceremonial duty. But an older family drama proves key to the case. Public Affairs Office Ron Sands tags along, as Tony is his choice as face of the new NCIS recruiting brochure. Written by
