NCIS (2007): S05E05 – Leap of Faith


The fifth season of the police procedural drama NCIS was originally broadcast between 25 September 2007 and 20 May 2008.

It marked the end of Donald P. Bellasario’s involvement as showrunner. The new showrunner, starting from this season, was Shane Brennan.


When a Navy lieutenant who worked at the Pentagon as an intelligence officer attempts to commit suicide by jumping off a rooftop, NCIS is called in to consult the officer. After Gibbs is able to persuade the officer to step down from the ledge, the officer is shot dead, falling to his death from the rooftop. Each member of Gibbs’ team has a different theory on the murder, one of which includes the officer being a mole. Meanwhile, the team believes Abby is considering a job offer in the private sector.
