Summary: When the dead body of arms dealer La Grenouille is discovered, the NCIS team is investigated by the FBI, and Jenny Shepard becomes the prime suspect.
Episode recap: Tony comes in to work with a cup of coffe (no lid) and laughing about something on his cell. He gets startled when Ziva slams the hole puncher on some papers, and she tell him its housekeeping day. McGee notices that Tony has a cup of coffee, and warns Tony to stay away from the servers near his desk because he is backing up 3 years worth of investigations from all their computers and the machines are very sensitive. Tony then shows up near McGee with cup in hand and starts to hover over the machines. McGee looks on anxiously and warns him again about the sensitivity of the servers. Tony then tips his coffee cup, and McGee grabs it from him, but in the process ends up spilling the contents of the cup---paper disks from the hole punch. Gibbs comes in and reprimands them, when all of a sudden the information on the screens start to get staticky and eventually turns off, and McGee bemoans the fact that there has been a power failure and that the information has been lost. In come Fornell and tell him that they have powered him down, and that the entire department was now under investigation.
*This is what I can remember off the top of my head chronologically from the beginning......feel free to make any changes or corrections--though i guess that's the whole point of editing :-)
At the end of the episode, Jen announces she's taking two weeks off in personal time. So the Asst. Director will be staying on during this time.
New character developments/insights: Gibbs and the Director's memories of the event in the Director's study where the Director gives Benoit her gun differ. The Director remembers Benoit taking the gun. Gibbs remembers Benoit leaving the gun. Gibbs goes along with the Director's memory of the event. But he does not seem comfortable with it. The Director and Gibbs seem to be growing farther apart as this season has progressed, altho he is still very protective of her.
Assistant Director Vance seems to have the impression that Gibbs and the Director are currently involved romantically and disapproves.
For the first time, Director Shepherd calls La Grenouille "the frog."
Ducky points out that there is an astonishing similiarity between La Grenouille's death and Jasper Shepherd's death.
The Director and Gibb's * The priceless moment between Gibb;s and the Director at the end of the episode...does she have nothing to loose?
- When Gibbs digs under his workbench to find HIS computer, blows the dust off it & hands it to McGee to hack into the FBI files,,,the look on McGee's face is priceless!!
- Abby totally befuddling the FBI agent Fornell & Rocky during her interrogation was hilarious!
- Gibbs patting agent Wentworth and on the chest & warning him,"You're going to have to stop me! "(from leaving the room) & what shows up in Gibbs cellar that McGee needed !!
- The look of glee on Ziva's face when Gibbs hands her the switchblade to use on the FBI; and when he tells her its for the car tires, not their throats, she looks disappointed.
- Best line in the whole show was Gibbs' when he reaffirmed he witnessed Jen give her Glock to the Frog before he left her house. He wasn"t asked if the Frog took the gun with him when he left!
- When Abby says Gibbs never gets angry.
- I believe this is the first time we have seen Gibb's boat completed, although it seemed kind of small.
