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


Part 1 of 2 (Part 02).

A C-130 carrying the bodies of Marines killed in Afghanistan crashes. The team is stretched to the maximum as NCIS is given twenty-four hours to identify the bodies before they are released to their families, but complications arise when one of the bodies cannot be identified, and 1st Lt Gabriella Flores, a Marine who was supposedly killed in an attack on a local school-building project, remains unaccounted for. Accessing satellite footage of the bombing, the team realise that Flores is still alive, having tried to save two young girls – but moments later, she is captured by insurgents. McGee and Abby deduce that some of the teachers in Flores’ school-building project are actually female insurgents and Taliban-sympathisers sent undercover by a small but highly organised terrorist cell to infiltrate the school. The episode ends with NCIS preparing a rescue mission to save Flores. The case affects the team on a more personal level, especially Gibbs, who reminisces about his time in the Marine Corps.
