Bulletproof is the fifteenth episode of Season Eleven of NCIS and the 249th of the series as a whole.
While investigating a bakery truck that's crashed, the NCIS team discover stolen merchandise apparently belonging to the United States Marine Corps inside the truck with the crates later revealed to contain body armor. Things take a turn when Abby's tests reveal the supposedly safe body armor is actually flawed, capable of permanently paralyzing the wearer if they're hit with any gunfire. With that new information, the team rally to find and arrest the mastermind responsible for attempting to sell the faulty body armor while also ensuring that all the faulty body armor is accounted for.
A while later, as Bishop sits down amongst the concerned group of mothers to take their statement, McGee emerges to tell Gibbs what's going on.
Out on the corridor, McGee tells Gibbs that the mothers agreed to hold off on contacting any media outlets.
"We just need a chance to do our job, Tim", Gibbs states.
- During DiNozzo and Delilah's naming game, she mentions "Logan Cale", a character that Micheal Weatherly previously played in James Cameron's TV series, Dark Angel.
