Storyline

While Ziva, undercover, goes on a date with a suspected serial killer (an enlisted Marine), Tony enters the suspect's home and finds the body of the fifth victim; Gibbs and McGee pursue. Meanwhile the suspect threatens Ziva, who resists him and shoots him to death with his own piece; she experiences a strong emotional recoil. The team continues to investigate; Tony and Ziva go to the bar where she had met the guy, and she meets another man. Abby questions whether the dead guy acted alone, and she thinks there may be a sixth victim. Tony and Abby find some new evidence; the gang resolve the questions and apprehend the second killer. Finally, Ziva gives a favor to a friend. Written by DocRushing

Trivia

Due to the length of the first act, the on-screen credits roll into the second act, which is uncommon for any TV series. This is the first time this has happened on NCIS. See more »

Goofs

At the time the team arrests their military suspect they still haven't matched him to the prints found on the murder weapon. They should have been able to match him very quickly given that they have done so numerous times before via their comprehensive fingerprint database of members of the armed forces. Even quicker considering he was in a small pool of potential suspects. See more »
