NCIS (2008): S06E09 – Dagger


The sixth season of the police procedural drama NCIS was originally broadcast between 23 September 2008 and 19 May 2009.


Agent Lee becomes a reluctant participant in helping the NCIS team stop a top-secret defence plan from being stolen in hopes of finding her daughter Amanda. Lee is used as bait to capture her contact, Ted Bankston, who also tells of having a family member held captive. During the investigation, Amanda turns out not to be Lee’s daughter, but her younger adopted sister, with Lee admitting she lied to win Gibbs’ help. Bankston turns out to be the mastermind in the caper and takes Lee hostage, as Gibbs corners them on a bus. Gibbs receives minor wounds in the ensuing exchange. Ziva and Tony find Amanda strapped to a trigger plate connected to a bomb, and barely manage to free her safely. Upon learning that Amanda is safe, Lee gives Gibbs a signal to shoot and is shot and killed along with Bankston. Gibbs takes Lee’s badge and gives it to Amanda as the team sorts out Lee’s ultimate role in the plot.
