NCIS (2011): S09E06 – Thirst


The ninth season of the police procedural drama NCIS was originally broadcast between 20 September 2011 and 15 May 2012.


A NCIS case changes from accidental death to murder when evidence reveals that a Navy lieutenant died of forced over-hydration. The team discovered that the victim, Jason Simms, had been drugged with ecstasy, causing severe dehydration; this led him to over-hydrate, causing water toxification. When a second victim, Alcott, is found bound to a tree and also dead by way of water toxification, NCIS realise that both Simms and Alcott had failed marriages, and had been members of outreach programmes and targeted by a serial killer. Meanwhile, Gibbs meets Ducky’s new love interest, Mary, a woman he met online. McGee realises that Mary is connected to the same programme as Jason and Alcott, and is responsible for their deaths. Ducky is disturbed by his misplaced judgement of Mary, feeling guilty that he did not see her deception sooner.
