Storyline

Gibbs and company continue to investigate the killings at Vance's home, seeking whoever hired the shooter; McGee identifies the gunman; Tony and McGee get a lead on the kingpin; Tony questions the suspect. Tony provides secure lodging to Ziva at his own pad, and Vance takes leave and goes to a hotel. The new director of the Mossad arrives and throws his weight around. McGee says that the bullets came from Russia via Sweden; he also identifies the smuggler, who is Iranian; McGee traces the payment to the hit man, then Ziva interprets a crucial and clinching clue, which leads to the man responsible. A Suburban explodes, killing a key foreign official. Ziva escorts her father's body back home for burial in Israel; the whole gang accompany Vance and his kids for the burial of Jackie; Ziva goes to the wailing wall and later picks olives and plants an olive tree.

Quotes

Leon Vance: [speaking to Gibbs] You know, this whole ordeal has made me realize something that I didn't expect. It's helped me better understand your choices. Always thought I had a sense of how you felt at the time, Gibbs. Now I realize I wasn't close. I never wanted that kind of justice before... but since the other night, hell, that's all I think about. Was it worth it, Gibbs? It had to be some relief.
