Storyline

Gibbs and Tony are on security detail when the Navy secretary Clayton Jarvis attends a seminar with family friend Philip Wickes, whose steel company expects to loose its crucial US Navy contracts due to a 'green program' to switch to polyester ships. Jarvis is hospitalizes in lethal danger after a shooting, but it's staged. Gibbs' team is to investigate discretely, jointly with Psy Ops. Wickes's suggested suspect is found murdered at home and involved in an implicit blackmail. McGee takes on a masterly hacker, which leads to yet another motive. Written by KGF Vissers

Disappointed after a one month of reruns
20 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Jamie Lee Curtis character returning to NCIS fell flat and actually caused damage. Although I have always adored Sean Austin, his character served no purpose other than to steal lines and scenes from the rest of the main characters. This episode was really disappointing in the sense that it had a confusing plot, boring/uninteresting dialogue, and no good character interactions of the main characters. The dialogue and the relationships of these characters are the two features that make this show #1. I hate to say it, but JLC's character hurts the team and the show. Gibbs has had other relationships with characters outside of his team before that weren't so painful to watch.
