Parsons continues to badger Gibbs; Gibbs finally breaks his silence but only slightly. To the surprise of Parsons, AJ Chegwidden, a retired admiral and a retired judge advocate general (JAG) of the US Navy, arrives to defend Gibbs (because Vance has called him); Gibbs breaks a slight smile. Ducky and Palmer find bugs; AJ and Gibbs find that someone has tossed Gibbs's pad; Tony and Ziva join them; they all go to Gibbs's secluded cabin. McGee shows up and collects Tony and Ziva, then they investigate the death of a SEAL lieutenant; the widow has received his head in a cardboard carton; Palmer learns that it's radioactive. Tom Morrow, from the DoHS, gives some startling news to Vance; the three musketeers turn in their badges; Vance shreds one file, and Gibbs burns even more; Morrow hands Parsons a letter in which the IG of the DoD cancels the investigation; Parsons babbles; Gibbs goes on a top-secret mission. Four months later Gibbs takes a shot. [To be continued next season.] Written by
