We Build, We Fight

Series 12 - Episode 13 We Build, We Fight



A naval lieutenant and Afghanistan veteran is murdered, and drugs are found in his garage. His husband is horrified that the reputation of his partner, who was about to receive the Medal of Honor for bravery, could be jeopardised. Could the death be a hate crime?

We’re also still dealing with the fallout from the murder of Gibbs’s first wife a few episodes back. His ex-girlfriend Hollis Mann reappears – can she help Gibbs come to terms with his feelings of guilt?

In lighter news, pathologist Jimmy is about to become a dad. As you’d imagine, Tony’s gifts for the expectant parents leave something to be desired…


Gibbs and his colleagues investigate when Eric Kutzler, the first openly gay Navy lieutenant tipped to receive the Medal of Honour, is murdered. While the agents initially suspect Kutzler's death was the result of a hate crime, the fact that his police officer husband waited 20 minutes to report the crime suggests he had something to hide. Meanwhile, the team throws a baby shower for Palmer as his wife's due date approaches. Starring Mark Harmon, Michael Weatherly and Pauley Perrette.
