Two years ago a Navy lieutenant and his car disappeared without a trace. The wealthy family of the officer, a fighter pilot, offered a reward of $1M. Now a PI, seeking the reward, finds the car on the bottom of a lake; the car contains skeletal remains, which prove to be those of the missing man. Gibbs and company investigate; McGee says that the death was not an accident; Gibbs and Tony consult with a psychic, and they save her from a certain death. Abby finds a coincidence; Kate goes on a dress-up dinner date, but she does not get to eat dessert (until later in New York City). With more help from Abby, Gibbs realizes that the disappearance really was an accident, but he still arrests someone for attempted murder. Written by DocRushing

Did You Know?


While Gibbs and McGee are entering McAllister's home McGee remarks that the last time he did something like this Tony threw a rock through a window and Kate climbed in a second story window. These events occurred in the episodes, NCIS: Sub Rosa (2003) and NCIS: See No Evil (2004) See more »


When McGee expresses his disbelief that a personal hero tried to frame someone for a murder, Tony consoles him by mentioning similar feelings he had about learning professional wrestling was fake. While it became an open secret during the Monday Night Wars that match outcomes are pre-determined, there is also a degree of realism to pro wrestling; many of the moves wrestlers perform are dangerous, and injuries can be both career-ending and life-threatening: Darren Drozdov fractured two discs and was paralyzed from the neck down after a powerbomb was botched; Mick Foley was knocked unconscious for several minutes after being chokeslammed through the sixteen-foot high Hell in a Cell cage at King of the Ring; and perhaps most notably, Owen Hart died from blunt force trauma at WWF Over the Edge after falling into the ring from the arena rafters when his safety harness malfunctioned.

Thomas McAllister: [as Gibbs sits down in Interrogation] I'm sure you hear this a lot. I'm innocent, Agent Gibbs.
Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs: I know.
Monroe Cooper: [from observation] What the hell kind of interrogation is that?
