Cadence is the fourteenth episode of Season Twelve of NCIS and the 272nd episode of the entire NCIS series.

Synopsis

A Marine who was also a member of the Remington Military Academy, prompting the NCIS team to investigate. As this happens, DiNozzo finds himself remembering his day as a young teenage student at the Academy while Bishop and her husband, Jake invite Gibbs and the team for a special dinner.

Prologue

At a lone forest with owls even hooting in the background, leaves are heard rustling.

It then shows a bloodstain being left behind in the snow as someone drags a bag along the ground.

The man then grunts, turning the bag before it reveals that an African-American man was inside the bag with the other man lying on the ground, dead, his lifeless eyes staring up at the sky.

On his hand lies a class ring from an Academy.

It closes up on the hand as time begins to pass.

The camera pulls over again as sirens are heard wailing in the background with a man yelling, "Hey! Over here!" and as a SUV, presumably the park police arrives, the unknown man rushes forward, stating that he's the guy who called.

It then cuts of a shot of the man talking to the police while the body lies there, untouched.
