Storyline

A detective of the Metro PD approaches Gibbs on the day before Christmas Eve while investigating a burglary and double homicide involving an older couple in their upscale home. A delivery driver saw a third person inside the house; fingerprints at the scene lead to a former Navy hospital corpsman second-class (HM2), Quinn, who served in Vietnam with The Walking Dead, and who supposedly died 17 years before; Ducky signed the death certificate for Quinn. Abby sees Santa Claus and makes a picture of herself with him. Gibbs, acting on a suggestion by Ducky, finds Quinn at the The Wall; then the gang get a project for Christmas Day; Tony finds an unpleasant Christmas gift. The Metro cop rushes to nail Quinn, but the team believe otherwise, and they persist in their efforts; Gibbs, Tony, and Ziva meet the cop at the scene, and the real bad guy joins them, so they bust him. McGee gets a shock; Gibbs makes a delivery and a telephone call. Written by DocRushing

A double murder puts the NCIS crew on the trail of a man (Peter Coyote) long thought dead due to a dissolute life. When that man finally surfaces, the crew has to go and see his former wife to let her know he is very much alive. She wants nothing to do with him, but their daughter certainly does. Meanwhile, Gibbs has his doubts about the guy's guilt. While everyone except Ducky works on Christmas Eve to solve the case and possibly save the life of an innocent man, Abby takes it upon herself to try to bring daughter and father, who is in a holding room, together. Even though pop has made it abundantly clear he doesn't want to see his daughter. Coyote is great as the haunted dad.
