Maddie Tyler, a special friend and playmate of Kelly, Gibbs's daughter, asks for help with an unwanted suitor, Rudi, a Marine sergeant, who has begun stalking her. Gibbs gives him the word; soon Maddie calls Gibbs and says that Rudi has returned; someone trashes Maddie's pad and takes her in Rudi's SUV. The gang find the tortured body of Rudi, who had died before the abduction of Maddie. They find a suspect, who calls the Pentagon. Gibbs leaves the office with his piece but not his badge; he's figured it out, so he sets into action; he attends a meeting and picks up Maddie; the two of them escape, but Gibbs makes a miscalculation. Tony, nearby, helps, so everything works out. Written by DocRushing

One of the best episodes in the series so far. You get to see another side of Gibbs. The father he could have been if his daughter had lived. The caring part of him that he tries so hard not to show. Usually he is just gruff and standoffish. This time he is filled with compassion. And Tony really comes through when needed. It was good to see him shine. I even liked the director for once. Usually she just gets on my nerves. I was impressed by how each character handled things all the way around.
