A Marine sergeant dies, apparently from a fall, in the Shenandoah River State Park, near Bentonville, Virginia, while hiking with his wife and his best friend, another sergeant; Gibbs and company investigate. Ducky finds a wood-fiber fragment in the victim's scalp, Abby identifies it, and Gibbs interprets the identification. The victim used a videocamera, which McGee finds, and from which Abby recovers recent footage; she puts together what she calls a nature documentary with a riveting murder-mystery subplot with an alternate ending. McGee encounters leaves of three, and Gibbs and Kate find and chase a suspect. Gibbs and Kate take the widow and the best friend to different chat rooms, then to the same one. The team figure it out, and Kate adopts a pet. Written by DocRushing

When Abby is talking to Gibbs in her lab and getting ready to work on the camcorder, there is a series of close up shots clearly showing her putting on both gloves, then picking up and handling the camera. When it cuts back to both of them, she is only wearing one glove for the next several sentences, then suddenly two again for the rest of the scene. See more »
