The death of a Coast Guard Petty officer reunites the team with Agent Barin (Diane Neal). She is the coast guards form of Agent Gibbs (Mark Harmon).
The Petty Officer was killed while investigating an abandoned ship on the high seas. When the ship is towed to port Agent Barin and the NCIS team search the ship to find a Lebanese family hiding below decks. They immediately ask for asylum. Gibbs and Barin are both suspicious about how the family got there. During the investigation McGee discovers that the father was a wanted terrorist.
Meanwhile Tony (Michael Weatherly), Tim (Sean Murray) and Ziva (Cote de Pablo) are trying to find the perfect women for Gibbs. Their antics as they try to keep Gibbs from finding out were worth watching. When they do finally find, what they think, is the perfect woman they reveal her to Gibbs. Only to find out he already dated her.
Poor Abby (Pauley Perrette) was given the dirtiest job for this investigation. She had to sift through human waste testing it for bacteria. She was trying to determine how many people were on the ship. They don’t seem to be using Abby all that much in the episodes and I really miss seeing her. I love to see what great outfits she’s wearing.
