NCIS was originally broadcast between 23 September 2003 and 25 May 2004 on CBS.
Ducky responds to an emergency call when the Israeli Embassy sends a Royal Navy officer to NCIS for autopsy, only to find a gunman (revealed in later episodes to be recurring antagonist Ari Haswari) inside the body bag. As Ducky, Gerald and eventually Kate are held hostage in the autopsy lab, the director and Gibbs coordinate with an FBI strike team to negotiate their release. Meanwhile, Kate questions herself after she hesitates when presented with an opportunity to kill her captor, while Gibbs and Tony assist with the hostage rescue team. Haswari asks for Gibbs in the autopsy lab and challenges him to try and shoot him.
