Storyline

A Marine sergeant, Dawson, dies of gunfire during an alleged armed robbery of a men's clothing store in Washington, DC; Gibbs and company investigate; while at the scene Gibbs receives a call from a local cop nearby in Howard County, Maryland, near Baltimore, saying that his father, Jackson, has become involved in an "incident"; Jackson wants Leroy to go with him to see a fellow WW2 pilot in North Carolina, so they go. The rest of the team step up to the plate; Gibbs tells McGee to take the point; Tony and McGee compete and compromise; while Tony talks with Dawson's mother, she says something unusual, then he turns up a pattern; he and McGee pursue it. Abby learns more about Dawson; McGee identifies a person of interest, who gives a touching account; then Tony and McGee check out a second suspect, find incriminating evidence, and bust the killer. Abby traces Jackson's friend, then Leroy and Jackson go to him, and Jack introduces the other two to each other. Written by DocRushing

Absolutely awful
7 August 2015 | by (Korea) – See all my reviews

I like Gibbs' dad and Ralph Waite was a fantastic actor, but the character got on my last nerve in this episode. I don't know if they were trying to go for desperate to find his friend before time ran out, but he just came across as petulant and whiny. I actually yelled at my computer during the part where he left out the fact that the guy was German and got mad at Gibbs for trying to help him find the guy. "You left out the most important part." "No, son. We were fliers. That was the important part." Not if you wanted to find him! Jesus! I can't even remember what the rest of the episode was about, because he was so irritating. Awful episode. Almost as bad as that stupid jet-pack episode.
