Storyline

While Ducky remains on a medical leave, he arranges for the exhumation of the body of a Navy commander whose autopsy he conducted 12 years ago; Duckman suddenly realizes that the dead man may have died from murder rather than excessive drinking; Gibbs and the Duck exchange heated words. Meanwhile Gibbs and the gang investigate the death of a Marine sergeant in Brooklyn, New York, who was about to make a one-way journey. First Abby confirms Ducky's suspicion, then she finds a copy of a curious document on the dead sergeant's laptop computer; Gibbs invokes rule 38 in the case of the Duck, who says that he and his cohorts must cast asunder the evil now afoot. Tony and Ziva learn about some old dust, and Abby finds an old connection between the two dead guys. Gibbs and the gang talk with a rocker, then Ducky does so. Abby finds an important link, then Ducky and the gang put the pieces together, and Gibbs sends the Duck back to his own workshop. Written by DocRushing

Trivia

At the beginning of the episode, the cemetery administrator asks Ducky for the case number as he has not received a "27b/6 form". This is a reference to the movie "Brazil". It is also the apartment in which George Orwell wrote "1984". See more »

Goofs

In the basement, while Palmer explains about the burns on Sergeant Hill, he hands a paper to Gibbs with a list of possible poison that can cause the burns. Shortly after he takes the list from Gibbs and keeps it on his pad. However, the next camera view (from behind Gibbs) shows him as holding the paper and then Palmer takes it again to keeps it on his pad. See more »

Gibbs is not Ducky superior or supervisor
11 March 2018 | by lovettstoughSee all my reviews

I am a U.S. MARINE so I know the chain of command & NCIS is a little different. Gibbs is not Ducky superior or supervisor or even Abbys for that matter. Only the SecNav & the director & the assistant director supervise & are superior to Ducky & Abby. Gibbs is the team leader & he only can supervise his team which consist of only Tony, McGee, & Ziva.
