In the aftermath of Ziva killing Ilan Bodnar who was responsible for the deaths of Eli David and Jackie Vance, NCIS finds itself under investigation from a Department of Homeland Security agent and the consequences that emerge could prove damaging or even-life changing for everyone involved, especially Gibbs and his team.
