The team is called to go to a mortuary because a dead body was found along with a shipment of caskets. They wonder why were they called. That's when Fornell shows up and tells them that along with the body there were two men also with the caskets, escapees from a British prison and one of them is British agent who went rogue and it was NCIS that caught him. Initially Fornell tells Gibbs that the case is his. But when they go back to HQ, Vance and former Director Morrow is also there and they tell Fornell they are taking over. Fornell is ecstatic because he doesn't want the case but Vance tells him, they need someone from the FBI so Fornell is working with them. Written by
