Gibbs, Tony, McGee, and Ducky investigate the death of a petty officer aboard a Naval vessel; later Tony and McGee screen potential replacements for Ziva; nobody in the gang has heard from Ziva, so Gibbs, Tony, McGee, and Abby all start sniffing and digging around; they trace her to a Jordanian cargo ship, which sank in a storm off the coast of Somalia, reportedly with no survivor. Tony urges Gibbs to stop Saleem, then the team makes a case to Gibbs and Vance, who reluctantly approves an "investigative" mission to Somalia, where (as a part of a plan) Saleem captures Tony and McGee, to whom Saleem administers a truth serum. Saleem also reunites Tony and McGee with Ziva, whom Saleem has tortured. Gibbs reverts to his sniper mode and gets out the three musketeers, then they all return to Washington, DC, where they, emotionally drained and thoroughly exhausted, receive a rousing welcome.
Did You Know?
Tony explains to Ziva that when he fails to report in word would be sent to a carrier group in the Mediterranean who would launch F-22 Raptors to destroy the terrorist camp (with them in it). The F-22 is a land based aircraft, which currently operates only from Air Force Bases in the continental United States, not from Naval Aircraft Carriers. It would be reasonable to expect Tony to know this, as he works for the Department of the Navy. See more

Abby Sciuto. Resident NCIS Forensic Specialist, heart and soul. A paradox wrapped in an oxymoron, smothered in contradiction. Sleeps in a coffin. Really the happiest Goth you'll ever meet.
