Gibbs (Mark Harmon) survives his ordeal with the help of his surgeon, Navy Doctor Cyril Taft (Jon Cryer). His recent brush with death, however, makes him question his capacity to lead his team.

Former MI6 agent Jacob Scott (Vince Nappo) claims he's framed for ambushing Fornell (Joe Spano); investigating his claim leads the team to uncover a plot involving their frenemy Trent Kort (David Dayan Fisher) and their old friend Ziva David (Cote de Pablo).
