This season is taking a particularly grim turn: it must have been a dark day in the writers’ room as they plotted this storyline. After the previous episode ended with a radicalised teenage boy blowing himself up on a bus, now we’re finding out more about the terrorist group who influenced him. They’re known as The Calling, and they specifically recruit vulnerable young children – hence the Lost Boys of the episode title. But what is their aim? Their methods are clearly opposed to everything that NCIS stands for: as someone says, “When babies are used in the wars of men, then God help us all.”

Gibbs becomes attached to one recruit; can he get through to this angry youngster before a more serious attack, either at home or in Egypt, where McGee and his new colleague Ned have been sent to liaise with Interpol?


Special Agent Ned Dorneget of the NCIS cyber division joins the team to further their investigation into The Calling, the insidious terror network radicalising youngsters via the internet. When it emerges young suicide bomber Bradley was not, in fact, affiliated with The Calling, Gibbs and his colleagues realise they might be back to square-one. Determined to bring the organisation down, the agents pursue two new leads, an arms dealer who may be supplying The Calling with their signature German S-mines, and another boy given a deadly mission by the terrorists. Guest starring Matt Jones.
