Want to know what you missed on this week’s” NCIS” episode “Broken Arrow”? Could it be….a murder? Yes, yes, yes! Of course it could! What would “NCIS” be without a murder?
This week’s episode begins with a disturbed DiNozzo stressing over the fact that he missed his father’s middle of the night phone call. Ahh, family, you’ve got to love them! Of course the importance of this call wasn’t revealed until an investigation was launched into the dumpster found body of Woodrow Iverson at the Naval Academy. During the investigation of the “who’s who” involved with the murder, it is discovered that DiNozzo Sr., who Tony has the typical dysfunctional relationship with, was one of the last people to be seen with the now departed Iverson. Apparently Iverson was an employee to a company (Royce Global) that’s main operation is underwater mining.
After an intimidating one on one conversation in the interrogation room, Gibbs finds out that DiNozzo Sr. didn’t know the departed as well as suspected. After a meeting with Admiral Chase, it is admitted that Iverson’s death may have had something to do with national security. During this conversation it is decided that surveilling an upcoming conference would be the best way to uncover the possible reasons for Iverson’s murder as well as how Royce Global could be involved with national security. After hearing this, Gibbs decides DiNozzo Sr. should stay in town to help out with the investigation into Iverson’s murder since he held an invite to the conference after party. An annoyed DiNozzo Jr., goes along with the plans but not without warning Gibbs of his father’s “caviar” lifestyle.
After Abby works her magic it is discovered that the clothes of the departed had small levels of radiation which is unusual since there was nothing found that it could be linked to. Jump further into the episode and it is found that the missing link (what caused the radiation) was hidden in the cab that Iverson took his last ride in. A plate etched with a few numbers is found which leads the team to discover that the plate belongs to a lost hydrogen bomb. And cue the looks of terror. Could it be that the nuclear material inside the bomb could fall into the wrong hands? YUP! The team is left to figure out how each person in the “who’s who” discussed prior fit into the picture.
DiNozzo Sr. is sent into the conference after party accompanied by an undercover Ziva all the while running up a HUGE tab paid for by…”NCIS” of course. “Sophia” (Ziva) and the team, with the help of a spy cam are able to identify many of the partygoers as having connections that could get the nuke into the wrong hands. These bad guys aren’t the only ones being studied! It isn’t long before Ziva’s cover is blown and the tables quickly turn. What now?!
You’re not going to find out how it ends from me! Murder, family dysfunction, hydrogen bombs, cryptic messages, surveillance, covers being blown, DNA evidence; all of these things make up “Broken Arrow”.
