Murder 2.0 is the sixth episode in Season Six and also the 119th episode of the entire NCIS series.
When the body of a civilian is discovered in a water tank, the NCIS team investigate and soon discover that they're searching for a serial killer who's taunting them by leaving messages concerning the whereabouts of his next victims.
Alice Hardy arrives home and after switching on the lights and locking her door, places her hat on the table. She then removes her holster and jacket, dumping them on the coach before she sits down, Alice untying her hair.
As this happens, a door opens, revealing that someone's spying on Alice who's now removing her boots, Alice unaware that she's being watched.
Suddenly, Alice senses what's going on and looks up, causing the door to close.
Alice calls out "Hello?" but then gives up before she resumes untying her boots.
Seconds later, the door opens again, causing Alice to look up before it closes again.
"Hello?", Alice calls, grabbing her banton as she gets to her feet and it's shown that the same door is now open again with the same individual glancing at her before the door closes again.
Bracing herself, Alice then kicks the door down, entering the room.
As she switches on the light, the person yells that it's just him and that it's the third time she's done that to him. It's revealed that the man is Jack Burrell, Alice's husband.
"You know I don't like surprises", Alice says.
"Yeah, well, surprise", Jack announces, holding a bottle of whiskey or wine and some flowers with a red ribbon before revealing that it's their one-month anniversary.
Alice remarks that she knew there was a reason she married Jack.
She then engages Jack in a passionate kiss before they break apart.
Alice remarks that she'll be right back.
Jack tells her that he'll be right here.
Once Alice's gone, Jack digs out a tray from behind the bed with some pink handcuffs in the tray. He then pulls out a CD, remarking a little Barry before placing the CD into the CD player while also revealing that the singer is Barry White.
In the shower, Alice prepares to turn on the water and once she's done, she removes her knickers, dropping them to the ground.
With Barry White still playing in the background, Jack places the pink handcuffs onto the pillow and sprays some perfume.
Meanwhile, Alice now wearing a tower heads for the shower.
Jack then stops when he hears Alice screaming and he rushes for the bathroom.
In the bathroom, Alice stands there, hysterical as blood-soaked water begins emerging from the shower-head and heading into the sink.
It then cuts to a shot of Jack comforting Alice by gathering her into his arms as the blood-soaked water continues to pour from the shower-head down the sink.
Now hiding under a table in her lab, Abby tells Gibbs that she can see the intruder before telling Gibbs that the guy is right outside her door.
As he and McGee descend the stairs, Gibbs tells Abby that he's coming and that they're almost there.
McGee then orders that the building be locked down and for Agents to meet them on level one while also stating that the intruder may be armed.
"Just hurry", Abby begs.
