NCIS Recap: "Inside Man"

by at . Comments

On last night's NCIS, the team was forced to reopen the case of a dead Navy officer because a political blogger who accused them of a cover up turned up dead himself.

The Navy officer, suspected of insider trading, was thought to have been killed in a car accident and the case was closed by NCIS. But the blogger alleged wrongdoing.

The officer's death had no discernible link to the blogger's murder - until they exhumed the body and found there was no body. Was the blogger trying to frame NCIS?

NCIS Quotes

McGee: Rule number 70 - keep digging till you hit bottom.
Abby: McGee! There is no rule 70.
McGee: Well, I--
Abby: You just made up a rule. This McGibbs thing has really gone to your head. I don't even recognize you right now.

[voiceover] Anyone can achieve their fullest potential, who we are might be predetermined, but the path we follow is always of our own choosing. We should never allow our fears or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny. Your destiny can't be changed but, it can be challenged. Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
