Storyline

Ghosts from Gibb's past make him ponder how different his and many other lives would have been without his career switch to NCIS. This mood was triggered by a desperate aftermath to the team's latest case. Aboard a ship, a naval officer and a contractor were shot. The weapon traces to financially stressed analyst Michael Rose, whose model son Steven's college fund was in great danger. Written by KGF Vissers

200
27 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite series. The character build-up has been slow at times, but steady. I've dreaded the lose of some of them, as they seem to become family. Kate was one of those.

This episode has one of my favorite characters, Mike Franks, in a returning role. His was perhaps the best semi-regular.

The show is really about the epilogue of a current case that plays in flashbacks through this episode. As a milestone for the series, thus the "200" subject line, it ranks as one of the best. What did amaze me was that I missed the first airing. I'm quite glad I caught it as a re-run.

Most poignant was the sequence with Gibbs and his wife.
