Phoenix is the third episode of Season Ten of NCIS and the 213th of the series as a whole.


While on medical leave as a result of suffering a heart attack which was triggered by him learning of the Navy Yard Bombing, Ducky orders that the remains of a Navy commander whose autopsy he performed twelve years ago be exhumed after Ducky realizes that the Commander may have been murdered. Meanwhile, the team investigate the death of a Marine who was found dead in his apartment and as the investigation unfolds, it appears that the two deaths are seemingly connected...

Major EventsEdit

  • It's revealed that three months have passed since the events in Extreme Prejudice (episode).
  • Ducky takes charge of a case for the first time.
  • It's shown that McGee's shooting skills have dramatically improved.
  • After the case concludes, Ducky, having been cleared to work again returns to his duties as NCIS's Chief Medical Examiner.


  • At the Shooting Range, before the second round of shooting begins, McGee has his earmuffs down. However, in the next scene, just seconds before he raises his gun and fires at the target, they're covering his ears. There's no way he could have gotten them on so fast and in such a short length of time.
