On a sidewalk in Washington, DC, Tony and McGee bust a 22-year-old chick, who turns out to be an electronic pickpocket, who causes the gang to search for a terrorist, who proves to be a pair of Mossad operatives, Liat and Malachi; meanwhile the US Coast Guard sends three bodies and other evidence after fireworks during an encounter with a small civilian craft in the Gulf of Mexico. While investigating both chains of events, Gibbs soon sees a connection between the two threads; Gibbs also accepts an invitation to meet with Eli David, Ziva's father and the head of the Mossad, who explains more.
