Tony is annoyed when he learns that McGee has been declared the "new face of NCIS". Before he can investigate further, Gibbs calls the team together to investigate the death of Marine Captain David Landis.

Landis had been discovered by his friend Gunnery Sergeant Joseph Wilks, just prior to the time when they were getting ready to do a practice run for a marathon. Upon entering Landis' home, Wilks surprised the killer and grappled with him briefly until the assailant stabbed him and fled.

The team interviews an eyewitness named Ken Ashmore, who gives them a description of the killer.

At first, they suspect that a man named Qasim Naasir was the killer, until they find out he was a friend of Wilks and Landis.

They also find out that the murder revolves around Qasim, and that Landis has been tortured by an agent of Qasim's brother Rasheed. Rasheed has been trying to locate his brother, because he wants to kill him for helping the enemy of the Taliban - the American Marines.

Knowing that Qasim is now with NCIS, Rasheed abducts a Marine in Afghanistan and sends NCIS a video saying that the Marine will be killed unless Qasim is offered up in exchange.

The State Department orders Vance to effect the exchange, who sends Gibbs and Bishop to escort Qasim to Afghanistan.

How does it all end? Will Gibbs just hand Qasim over? Who killed Landis?

Why is this trip to Afghanistan so important to Bishop? And what's the deal with McGee's elevation to "new face of NCIS"?

NCIS Season 12 Episode 21 Quotes

Bishop: What is it you expect me to do? Take down a whole village of insurgents on my own? That's not me. I'm an analyst.
Gibbs: I thought you were a field agent.
Bishop: Gibbs, whatever lesson you're trying to teach me is going to get Qasim and Corporal Collins killed. My job is in there, not out there.
Gibbs: Your job, Bishop, is to do what I tell you to do. You can do this.
Bishop: Don't put me in a position I'm not trained for.
Gibbs: Training's not the problem - you are. I told you, I got your back. Stop hiding behind things that are familiar, Bishop. You're better than that. The answers you want, Bishop - they're out there.

Qasim: Agent Gibbs, please pass along my gratitude to the other agents for capturing Landis' killer.
Gibbs: I'm not your messenger. Do it yourself. Come on - chop chop. Let's go. Hustle up.
Qasim: I don't understand.
Bishop: We put a call into the Secretary of the Navy. It took some convincing but after reading over fifty U.S. Marine statements on your behalf, she endorsed your special immigrant visa application. You're coming with us.
Qasim: To the United States to live?
Gibbs: Don't go getting all excited just yet.
Bishop: You'll be required to work at a translation post in D.C. while your visa's being processed. It's not negotiable.
Qasim: Where will I be found?
Gibbs: NCIS
Qasim: I believe I can manage that.
