Storyline

Christmas carolers hear gunshots; a man, smeared with blood, staggers outside and pleads for help; the speaker is Lance, a recently discharged Navy lieutenant and intelligence officer, diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after a tour in Afghanistan; he says that inside his home he saw a shootout, which killed two men; the victims are a Navy ensign (Scott) and a small-time drug dealer (Mancuso); Callen and company investigate. Kensi and Deeks take Lance back to his bungalow, where Lance makes a confession; Eric and Nell find a connection and a number of details; while Kensi and Lance talk and walk, a stranger draws a piece and takes aim, so Kensi opens fire; Eric and Nell get a match on facial recognition; G and Sam pick up some scoop about Lance, and Kensi runs into trouble with Lance, who leaves; the four musketeers attend a meeting at the Santa Monica Pier, where they stop Lance and a bad guy. Kensi finishes putting the pieces together. Written by DocRushing

Goofs

The dialogue refers to Scott variously as a nurse, an ensign, and a hospital corpsman; in an official photograph he wears the collar bars of an ensign but not the device of the Nurse Corps, thus implying that he's NOT a nurse but rather a line officer. If Scott were a nurse, he'd be a member of the Nurse Corps, and he'd wear the appropriate corps device on his left collar. Finally, a hospital corpsman is NOT either a nurse or a (commissioned) officer at all but rather an enlisted member and a petty (noncommissioned) officer. See more »

Quotes

Kensi Blye: What if we take him back to the crime scene to jog his memory?
Navy Commander Dr. Stanfill: I wouldn't recommend that. There's a strong chance that if he's re-exposed, it'll trigger a major panic episode.
Marty Deeks: So we may *never* know what happened in the house last night?
Navy Commander Dr. Stanfill: This man has no family, and no friends. The trauma he experienced while deployed has driven him into complete isolation. Frankly, forgetting what happened last night may be the best thing for him.
