NCIS (2019): S16E13 – She


The Sixteenth season of the police procedural drama NCIS was originally broadcast between 25 September 2018 and 21 May 2019.


The team finds a malnourished and confused 9-year old girl who ran away to seek refuge in a storage unit after being locked away for her entire life. Her mother, Morgan Turner, had disappeared several years prior, and the discovery of the girl leads to Morgan’s cold case being reopened. Bishop discovers notes that Ziva David had kept on the case even after NCIS officially ceased investigation upon finding out her car had gone off a cliff and the death was ruled a suicide, but a wedge between Gibbs and Bishop is formed when the latter tries to explain her findings to the team. Despite Gibbs’ orders for her to drop the matter, referencing rule #10 (“never get personally involved in a case”), Bishop begins her own project to find Morgan, and she is led to a shack where the suspect, Robert Hill, is keeping her captive. Bishop saves Morgan’s life and she is reunited with her daughter, while Bishop makes peace with Gibbs, who subsequently burns a slip of paper with rule #10 written on it. When Bishop goes to read a letter from Morgan’s mother to Hill, which is what Ziva had promised to do, Hill surprises her by revealing that another female had read the letter to him and that she was going to “haunt his dreams”; Bishop returns to the “office” Ziva had rented and finds a note without a signature. It reads: “Eleanor Bishop, for the safety of my family, please keep my secret.”
