They interviewed his wife, Kay Barlow, yet she vouched for him, that he wasn’t a criminal or a terrorist. Kay did mention that Rafi left the house that night but was back in the morning. Hines hacked his phone which revealed a location. The team arrived to discover a lot of computer equipment and Russian text on all screens. A man was shot dead in the bathroom. Both Parker and McGee recognized the man, he was a famous hacker.

Troops On The Ground

Back at the office, they tossed theories that he could possibly have been radicalized by the Taliban. However, at his military clearance level, he had to pass layers of scrutiny- which he did.

Torres and Knight searched Rafi’s home, yet his wife defended him. Shifting him to his pilot colleagues for confirmation of his character. They met Mike Novaski, a military contractor who was racist and suspected Rafi of being a terrorist simply because he was born Afghan.

The agents then spoke to Navy Captain Oliver Royce who confirmed Rafi’s device stole the software- though he was in complete disbelief.

Their chat with him led them up the ladder. NCIS Director Leon Vance had to speak with Secretary of the Navy, Hattie Taylor. She went to the extreme and ordered troops in the street to apprehend the man since he had the power to attack the United States with drones currently circling the skies!


The media was alerted, plastering Rafi’s face all over TV. The team then discovered Rafi called Kay and he claimed someone set him up and he wanted her to meet him. Meanwhile, Hines had a location on the man.

Torres and Knight intercepted Kay, yet Torres was heavy-handed with the woman (playing good cop, bad cop.) Knight pleaded with the woman to help stop him from fleeing to Afghanistan because he could risk an international event. They wired her to meet with her husband. Kay got nervous then warned Rafi to run. Agents chased but magically lost him in an alley…

Seeking Asylum

McGee looked at the area and figured Rafi fled to the Afghan consulate. They spoke with Afghan Ambassador Tariq Dotani and he shielded Rafi and refused to offer him up. Breaching the consulate was considered an act of war.

Hines gave the team more bad news, the master key was sold on the dark web at no cost! They figured their only card left to play was with Kay. Meanwhile, Parker visited the consulate to chat with Dotani and Rafi. He told her that Kay was being charged for Rafi’s actions and the crimes were maximum sentences. They even staged her outside of the window in cuffs for him to see.

Suddenly, Rafi wanted to talk. He offered to turn himself in if they dropped charges against her. Parker walked the man out and released Kay. Suddenly, gunshots rang out, and tires screeched… Rafi was shot!

Parker joined Rafi on the EMT ride and they diverted to NCIS for Palmer to treat him. They had a quick discussion about a mystery $10K that appeared inside McGee and Palmer’s bank accounts- but not Torres’.

Palmer was able to safely remove the bullet and Rafi was interrogated by McGee and Parker. Rafi maintained his innocence and shared his pledge of allegiance to the United States. He revealed something that pointed suspicions to Kay.

Torres and Knight interrogated her, accusing her of hiring the hacker, using Rafi’s gun to kill the man, and using his facial recognition to gain access to the master key. They found the murder weapon and her old radical posts from 5 years ago. She gave the master key away to her extremist cause.

Knight informed her of her ignorance of Jihad- it’s the internal struggle for Muslims to do good, not evil. Kay rebutted her cause as divine retribution. They informed the woman that the Navy was able to deactivate the drone master key and the look on her face (with egg dripping) was priceless.

Later on, they found Kay purposely dated Rafi, using his heritage as a fall guy. She was radicalized by Lance Johnson, who shot Rafi. He was apprehended.

The Gift

Vance called McGee and Palmer into his office to inform them that Gibbs had given them the $10K for their kid’s college tuition. It was something Gibbs started in memory of his daughter, Kelly. For years, he donates to the families of agents for college. They felt sad they couldn’t thank their friend in person…
