The team investigates the death of a retired Navy Lietenant, forcing Ducky to reveal his membership in a secret society that looks into cold cases on NCIS. "16 Years" is the seventh episode of the show's 13th season.
Bishop: Attention squad room. Tony and McGee: Louder! Bishop: Attention squad room! I, Eleanor Bishop, am asking spirits of criminal science for a really hectic day! A crazy day where lots of things go terribly, terribly wrong. Tony: There you go.
Judith: Where's my Gibbs? Ducky: He sends his regrets. Judith: Oh it's fine. I'll be seeing lots of him anyway. Agent McGee and I are collaborating on a new crime novel. And I'm basing my main character on the silver-haired devil. Short on words, but his eyes say plenty.
