Storyline

Gibbs and company continue to investigate an explosion and a fire; McGee goes to the carrier involved; Abby finds a clue, which opens a whole set of new questions; Gibbs, Tony, and Ziva meet McGee when the ship arrives in Norfolk from the sea. Abby finds also a connection between the two shipboard thermite fires; Ducky too finds such a connection; McGee and Abby break a code. Next Tony and Ziva fly to Naples, Italy, and meet another NCIS special agent, then they all go aboard a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, where they nab a bad guy (before he does his dirty work), who tells who hired him and why; McGee and Abby figure out which particular person with a certain name is the man behind the scheme.

Trivia

The bikini photos of Ziva that Tony threatens to show to McGee are the ones Tony took way back in #5.18, Judgment Day: Part 1. See more »

Goofs

The Taxi that Tony and Ziva are using to go to the harbor of Naples, is a Russian Lada 1200/1300 or VAZ-2101 (you can see the Lade sign on the front grille). This car is a license production of the Italian Fiat 124, which would more likely to be found in Italy than it's Russian counterpart. See more »

Quotes

Andre Fullerton: Shouldn't someone be reading me my rights?
Special Agent Jethro Gibbs: You have no rights! You're a terrorist on a U.S. Navy vessel, and we're invoking the PATRIOT Act.
