At the Marine Corps Base, Quantico, Virginia, a Navy petty officer third-class, Lowry, chases and attacks a man who has followed him; Lowry, a cook, asks to speak with someone at NCIS about "national security"; Gibbs and McGee respond; McGee finds a GPS tracking device on the sailor's car. A supposed independent lawyer from the Office of the Inspector General of the DoD shows up in Vance's office, allegedly to wrap up the inquiry into the death of Ilna; he accompanies Tony and McGee on a stakeout related to Lowry's personal gear. Abby finds a surprise, which Lowry does not recognize or remember, but Gibbs and Lowry learn about a program involving Lowry; a three-alarm fire damages the warehouse containing the offices of the program. Gibbs finds a corporal on UA. The members of the gang agree that the IG's lawyer is on a witch hunt of some sort; later he, with a goon squad of grim-faced feds, confronts Gibbs, accusing him of federal crimes. [To be continued.]

The Washington FD ordinarily does NOT fight fires in Baltimore. One might wonder which the writers intended. See more
