A petty officer reports that someone in a military cammy uniform has entered her bedroom in Georgetown, in Washington, DC, and assaulted her with a knife; the Metro PD calls the NCIS, so Gibbs and company investigate. The Naval Medical Center in Bethesda recently released her from treatment for a mental illness; now her psychologist interferes and readmits her. Soon Gibbs and Kate find her dead, then Ducky calls it murder. The victim had worked for, and had an affair with, a captain at the Pentagon under investigation by the FBI. Gibbs and Fornell, of the FBI, butt heads but later collaborate. The gang trace connections and relationships, and they eventually figure out everything. Written by DocRushing

Did You Know?


Gibbs says that the victim lived in Georgetown, which is an old, urban, upscale, expensive, densely populated area in Washington, DC. First, it's highly unlike that a young petty officer would live in Georgetown or could afford to do so. Second, the fictional home in question is a modern, contemporary single-family ranch house with a five-digit street number and a grassy lawn in a woodsy neighborhood with a curved street with little traffic and few pedestrians.

Special Agent Timothy McGee: [Gibbs and Fornell are about to interrogate a suspect] So what's the plan, good cop/bad cop?
Agent Caitlin 'Kate' Todd: More like bad cop/scary cop, McGee.
Special Agent Timothy McGee: Which one's which?
Agent Caitlin 'Kate' Todd: [chuckles] I think you'll have to ask their ex-wives that one.
