Gut Check, is the ninth episode of Season Eleven of NCIS, and the 243rd of the series as a whole.

Synopsis

A briefing being held in MTAC is interrupted when it's discovered that the Secretary of the Navy has been bugged. Determined to find out who's responsible, the NCIS team investigate, only to fall into a case that has issues of national security and even murder while working with a young NSA Analyst who predicted two years ago that the security breach would occur.

Major Events

  • NSA Analyst Eleanor Bishop is introduced for the first time.
  • After the case, Bishop becomes the official NSA/NCIS liaison officer.

Trivia

  • This is the second episode to briefly feature the in-development Zumwalt-class destroyer. The first was in the Season 5 episode Stakeout (episode).
  • Tony now has two gold fish. Since his first gold fish is named after Kate, it is reasonable to assume his second gold fish is called Ziva.
