Bulletproof is the fifteenth episode of Season Eleven of NCIS and the 249th of the series as a whole.
The NCIS team investigate when body armor is discovered in a crashed bakery truck which is also filled with stolen merchandise apparently belonging to the United States Marine Corps with the search for answers intensifying when Abby's tests reveal that the supposedly safe body armor vests that were found in the truck are actually faulty...
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.
