The Season 11 premiere of NCIS, titled “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” picks up where we left off at the end of Season 10.  After Parson confronts Tom Morrow outside a concert hall about his frustration with the stymied investigation of NCIS, a bomb goes off which kills SecNav Clayton Jarvis, and injuring Morrow. Meanwhile Gibbs is sent to Iran to investigate the death of Lt. McBride, only to find himself in an ambush from which he is rescued by Parsons.  Parsons now believes he was lead into a witch hunt of NCIS, only as a means to discredit the team.  Meanwhile, as a civilian Tony makes plans to join Ziva in Israel, but as he gets ready to leave he comes under fire from a sniper from outside his apartment.  He escapes to NCIS and after learning that Parsons has ended his investigation, he and McGee get their badges back.  When Ducky and Palmer confront and disable an ex-FBI agent who was attempting to hack into their system, the team learns that their firewall has come under attack and that all of their cellphones has been compromised.  This leads Gibbs and Fornell to discover that all of the activity - the assassination attempts, the hacking and the death of McBride are all linked.  NCIS, SecNav and Homeland Security have been getting too close to the truth: that a terrorist organization called "Brotherhood of Doubt" has formed partnerships with U.S. companies, with a view to creating destruction in order to allow those companies to bid on rebuilding infrastructure. When Abby discovers the origins of the bomb from the concert hall, Gibbs and his team storm the terrorists' hideout, only to find it empty, except for some explosives and some pictures of their targets.  Ziva knows what happened with the bombing, and with Tony being targeted, so she goes into hiding.  Tony calls on Ziva's friend Damon Dayoub to rescue her at a safe house.  When they do, they find three dead men in her place, and Ziva gone.

I'm positive that NCIS is being set up. Sending you out here was not about Lieutenant McBride. It was about separating you from your team.


Tobias: Hard to know who to trust anymore.
Gibbs: Has it ever been easy, Tobias?
