Navy lieutenant commander Wallace, a regular personal guest of the president, is found, fatally stabbed, by White House square visitors who report it to parks service sergeant Burt Moore, a hunk to Abby's taste. He informs NCIS, adding there was a recent series of non-violent robberies by a 'gentleman thief', who is soon tracked down and eliminated, being just a penniless criminology student with an alibi. The victim's wedding to Trish however was crumbling, his girlfriend Lara Morgan, an employee of Colford's defense-contracted ICT company, seemingly drowned in a possibly staged car accident.

Best show ever
1 October 2014 | by zalina-867-6567See all my reviews

NCIS in my opinion is the best show on TV. The characters are so light and funny. There are no heroes there what i think it is so good. They are always giving you the feeling that they can be your neighbor. Yesterday was funny, sentimental and brought us the Sarcoidosis disease which is a terrible condition and people will know more about it. Abby's new love interesting is handsome and a very good choice and when Dinozzo says that "it is the president of USA" his face was priceless. I had a very good night yesterday and i am sure a lot of people had too because 18.65 million people watched the show last night. NCIS won the night in total viewers again...
