The second season of the police procedural drama NCIS was originally broadcast between 28 September 2004 and 24 May 2005 on CBS.
This season shifts away from the naval setting of the show somewhat, and includes more character development than the first season.
With the episode “Lt. Jane Doe”, the show also introduced the foofs, a black and white “preview” which was shown at the beginning of each act of that episode and has continued to be used to this day.
Season two had Norfolk Case Agent Timothy McGee being promoted to a full-time field agent, and transferring to NCIS HQ in Washington to work with the Major Case Response Team. Tony DiNozzo nearly died of the pneumonic plague in “SWAK” while the season finale, “Twilight”, ended with a shocking and unexpected twist: Caitlin Todd was shot and killed by Ari Haswari.
