That dastardly terrorist who caused Gibbs and the gang trouble in Russia at the beginning of the season returns in absentia this week as the team investigate a nasty killing. A naval research scientist is discovered in a park; she’s been decapitated. And her former colleague in Moscow is now in Washington, fearful for her life, having been approached by said terrorist, who wanted her to take her work on lasers into the private sector.

The NCIS’s job is complicated by the arrival of the FBI on the scene in the form of a very attractive officer who promptly catches the eye of the ever-smooth Tony DiNozzo. “What’s Tony backwards? Why not?” is one of his more subtle chat-up attempts…


The NCIS team is assigned to a joint terrorism task force by the Secretary when a Moscow-born scientist who it is believed may have been targeted by the Russians for selling state secrets, is found dead. The trail appears to lead to a friend of Sofia's, another scientist who worked for Russia and who may have succumbed to professional jealousy. However, when she too is found dead, the team discovers the hallmarks of Sergei Mishnev, the terrorist who nearly killed Gibbs. Starring Mark Harmon, Michael Weatherly and Pauley Perrette.
