Review

The make-up effects department definitely earns its keep tonight, as it rises to the challenge of creating a bloated corpse that’s been in the water for 36 hours, having had a nasty encounter with the propeller of a shrimping boat. Let’s just say that torso and head are no longer the best of pals.

It’s a pity, then, that the mystery that follows is as soggy as the body – a sluggish story of conspiracy within the local fishing community that doesn’t provide much in the way of tension. Thankfully, the B story is better paced, as a flabbergasted LaSalle (Lucas Black) tries to work out why his late dad has left behind an $8 million debt.

Summary

After a petty officer is found murdered under a shrimping boat, the NCIS investigation uncovers a conspiracy in the tight-knit local fishing community. LaSalle awaits the final results of the tax fraud investigation into his family's company. Scott Bakula and Lucas Black star.
