Storyline

A real-estate agent and two clients find the body of a Navy woman lieutenant commander, Maya, who has served as a Naval attaché overseas (most recently in Cairo, Egypt), and whose husband, Nick, is a detective for the Metro PD, Washington, DC; Gibbs and company investigate. Nick tries to help, but his help does not help; however, Gibbs and Nick find a common ground, as do Tony and Nick, who gives Tony a slip of paper. Ziva poses several questions to CI-Ray, and he poses one to her. Maya made a number of trips between Cairo and Islamabad, Pakistan. Gibbs sees one clue, and McGee and Abby pursue it, then Tony and Ziva find something. Gibbs and Abby learn that Maya caught a bad guy after he committed a major crime. Ziva figures out several things, and she extracts a confession. Nick offers some personal advice to Tony and Ziva. Written by DocRushing
