NCIS (2005): S02E19 – Conspiracy Theory


The second season of the police procedural drama NCIS was originally broadcast between 28 September 2004 and 24 May 2005 on CBS.


Gibbs and his team are called to investigate a possible crime when a petty officer named Jessica Smith reveals that she was attacked by a man wearing battle fatigues and body armour but there’s no such evidence to suggest that it took place. Her therapist Lt. Witten reveals that Smith has paranoid delusions which she believes was triggered by the death of her fiancee in Iraq the month before. Things take a shocking turn when Gibbs and Kate later find Smith dead in her room, having hung herself but Ducky later discovers she was already dead and the hanging was staged. With the help of FBI Special Agent Tobias Fornell, Gibbs and the team find out that she and her colleagues and their CO were embroiled in an ongoing investigation and suspect someone might have tried to silence Jessica. Meanwhile, when Kate reveals a secret of Tonys to humiliate him, he plays his ace by showing her a copy of an embarrassing photo of Kate at a sorority spring break party (which he discovered at the end of the last episode) and uses it as leverage to terrorise her.
