Kill the Messenger

Series 12 - Episode 2 Kill the Messenger



A father and daughter are on the tourist trail in Washington, when they stumble upon a hat. It belongs to a naval commander, who’s been stabbed. As the team assess his body on site, his phone rings. DiNozzo answers in his usual breezy manner, but is then uncharacteristically struck dumb – it’s the President!

Thus begins a resolutely domestic episode in which Abby compares body art with an admirer, DiNozzo makes another embarrassing phone blunder, and boss Vance discusses dark fears with Gibbs.

The best part of a thousand miles away, in NCIS: New Orleans, Pride and the gang investigate the death of a blogger who’d dared to criticise the Navy Seals. They’re not going to take that lying down…


The team investigates the death of a Navy Lieutenant who has been murdered while on his way to a meeting with the President, and must ascertain whether the killing was part of a recent spate of muggings in the area - or a targeted hit to keep information secret. Starring Mark Harmon, Michael Weatherly and Pauley Perrette.
