Part 2 of 2 (Part 01).

Gibbs wakes up believing it’s 1991 and he was wounded in Kuwait, with no memory of the last 15 years. Director Shepard contacts Gibbs’ NCIS mentor and partner, Mike Franks in hopes of helping an amnesiac Gibbs regain his memory as only he knows the details to an impending terrorist attack, and he remembers up until 1996 when Franks retired after his warnings about the impending attack on the Khobar Towers were ignored. She also delves into Gibbs’ past and shares with Ducky about his murdered wife and daughter. The team discover the agent was dead before the bomb, and realise Pinpin Pula killed and impersonated the agent, then used his credentials to board another ship. Meanwhile, Tony and the team discover Pinpin Pula wants to blow up the ship Cape Fear. Ziva, who had appeared nonchalant about Gibbs’ situation, visits Gibbs in a desperate and emotional attempt to revive his memory by telling him about their shared connection with Ari. Gibbs recovers his memory and is taken back to NCIS headquarters. The director in charge of the frigate’s shipment refuses to heed warnings from Gibbs, Jenny and other Navy officers leading to disastrous consequences. Finally, Gibbs hands his badge to Tony and resigns before heading to Mexico to stay at Franks’s house.
