Radio listeners report gunshots during a live talk show; the Virginia State Police responds and finds three bodies, including that of the guest speaker, who was a Navy commander; Gibbs and company investigate; they believe that the host was the primary target; Tony finds a tape with a reference about the motive of the shooter. The widow of the host provides a carton of clues, which enable the gang to meet a mailman and a bunch of sociable suburbanites in a gated community. Ziva poses as a potential seller, and money starts moving, then a neighbor sustains an injury. The neighbor's daughter lends a hand, then the father does, then the gang collar the bad guy, find the bomb, and prevent casualties; Ziva winds up on top of Tony, who says that he had missed the old Ziva. Finally, Gibbs and Ziva play catch under the lights. Written by

The money to pay for the trigger was said to be wired from an Al Qaeda account by George Newbern, a stock broker. US stock brokerages (and foreign brokerages operating in the US) may not hold accounts that can be traced to known terrorist groups. In addition, McGee says that the money has been red flagged. Money itself cannot be red-flagged. See more
Welcome to the world of binaural audio. In the radio interview, the radio host and the Navy commander were using separate microphones positioned in opposite directions. So when you listen with one channel in one ear, and the other channel in the other ear, your brain recreates a three dimensional space.

Yeah, it's like listening to "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida".
Yes. Wow. Only it's gunshots instead of a drum solo. Wow.
