Gibbs is in Mexico, held captive by Paloma Reynosa, head of the Reynosa cartel and the daughter of Pedro Hernandez, the dealer Gibbs killed decades earlier.

Lt. J.P. Dean, once Colonel Bell’s right hand man, was the one who captured Gibbs outside of Franks' home and handed him over to Reynosa.

Alejandro Rivera, of the Justice Department in Mexico, is Paloma Reynosa’s brother and corrupt.

They both want Gibbs to suffer in different ways for killing their father. Alejandro wants to put him on trial for murder in a Mexican court and is awaiting Abby’s report on her findings.

They threaten Gibbs that if he doesn’t do as they say they are going to keep him alive to see all his loved ones suffer.

Vance sends the team to Mexico to retrieve the bodies from the massacre outside Frank’s house and when Ziva and Tony arrive, out walks Gibbs from the cargo hold.

Tony and Ziva suspect that Gibbs is in danger after he mentions Rule #40: "If it seems someone is out to get you, they are." Is Gibbs really free or is he being tested?

A gun fight erupts between Lt. Dean and NCIS when his plane arrives in Virginia and he fails to surrender. Dean is ultimately killed.

Gibbs goes to the evidence locker and secretly retrieves a package from one of the crates used to store the bodies.

A test to become a drug runner for the cartel?

In the end, Vance enlists Tony to go to Mexico to hunt down Alejandro only to be stopped by Franks, who wants to finish the job.

M. Alison Hart prevents Abby’s file, which identifies Gibbs as the sniper that killed Pedro Hernandez, from being sent to Rivera.

Gibbs is forced to re-evaluate his rules, even writing a new one: #51: Sometimes, you're wrong.

Episode Number:

Everyone is signed now. I think it is a bad idea for Kelly to come back. Gibbs would go balistic to think that she and Shannon had been alive all this time without his knowledge. He needs to let them rest and go on with his life and find peace. The murder of Hernandez was sanctioned. It was part of his military record. Vance knew about it and so didn't the Sec Nav.
I think Sr. Gibbs can take care of himself. From some of the other episodes it seems that Gibbs and his Dad had a normal relationship until later years. I would love to see Ziva really stand up to her father.


I like the theme of Gibbs' daughter coming out of Witness protection... in Season 5 Requiem, where he saves his daughter's friend (well, with Tony's help of course), there should be a little "reward" for the good deed. For his being a murderer, I think that can take several twists and it would be interesting to see Gibbs squirm a little in the interrogation room hot seat for a change. It might make him see things a little differently... and it'd be fun to see LCDR Bud Roberts be his defense attorney!


I was afraid the series would end. Now it looks like there are many ways the series can go. First, the fact that Gibbs is a murderer must be dealt with. Did the CIA secretly issue a sanction?
Gibbs' dad has to handle Reynosa using his most potent weapon - his mouth. He can talk about how his granddaughter would have been about her age. As the next season goes on, Tony could get back together with his girlfriend Jeane after accidentally running into her mother. Gibbs needs an open-ended relationship with a woman - Allison? Holly Snow? But it needs to be one he chooses. Abby and Tim need new romantic interests outside the team.


I agree let gibbs father shoot and killreynosa as though she is a burgular , after all he does have a shotgun he uses once in a while and bring gibbs daughter out from hiding and see what he would really be like as a dad . there are so many types of different episodes that could be written with her in the picture. then let tony and ziva hook up now that she is a us citizen and maybe mc gee and abby can finally get together too


Enough of the killing of the characters. We have seen plenty over the 7 seasons. If they are going to leave the show, have them moving on to better things. I believe Gibbs father will be taken hostage in exchange for his cooperation (I sure hope so) Also,once the Mexico situation is completed, I believe it would make for a great season for Gibbs daughter to be found alive. They could have faked their deaths and put them in the witness protection program. After her mom dies, she wants to be reunited with her dad and since the Mexico deal is shut down, she could come out the the program. Would make for some good stuff with Gibbs adjusting to being a father. What do you all think?


Gibbs can't turn into a drug dealer. I think Reynosa is there to scare Gibb's father so he will call Gibbs. Gibbs never apologizes to anyone. I know Abby has signed a contract for next season, but he apologized to her. That makes me think she is the first target for the co-workers. Except Tony is in Mexico. He hasn't signed yet. I think they left it open to where he could get shot and killed if he didn't sign another season. Personally, NCIS needs all of its leading people to make it. They need to sign DiNozzo and McGee. It just wouldn't be the same show. I can't wait until September. Anyone know the actual date the new season starts?


when the show comes back on in sept why not have gibbs father shoot reynosa as a burgler and be done with her. he gets a slight wound to the shoulder. and this cartel gets destroyed by ncis with info on major leaders in the group who are planning to bring more drugs into the us via cruise ships! And vance gets fpund out to be a narc for a special group of very hogh level government people willing to save our country from terriost like reynosa and others!
