Recap – “Judgement Call” opens with a joint FBI and NCIS raid on a white supremacist group with a nerve agent bomb. However, the individual with the bomb slips away and the blame is placed squarely on Agent Hannah Khoury’s shoulders.
Meanwhile, at Belle Chasse, NCIS Deputy Director Van Cleef offers Pride a backhanded award for his function taking down Apollyon. His accommodation will be noted in his file, but heavily redacted.
Taking a a lot-deserved holiday, Pride and Rita head to take a look at his momma. She suffers from dementia and struggles recalling data, such as Cassius’ death.
Just before he can unwind and invest high quality time with his mother, Pride is referred to as back to NCIS headquarters. Khoury has been suspended and Pride requirements to lead the group in operating with the FBI to locate the bomb. Khoury does not want to sit on the sidelines.
With a lead on the bomb, NCIS & FBI agents head to an abandoned chicken farm. There’s an explosion, but the negative guys handle to get away. The FBI continues to blame Khoury.
Khoury visits Dr. Wade in the lab. She shouldn’t be there. She finds remnants of a Silver Star, which may perhaps aid them recognize the individual with the bomb. FBI Particular Agent Harper finds Khoury with Dr. Wade and chews her out.
FBI Particular Agent Harper, Khoury, and Pride all meet at NCIS Headquarters. Harper is angry! He says, “… she need to have been at dwelling waiting for her punishment.” His tone and wording produced my skin crawl. Any individual else?
Pride and Khoury are referred to as to Belle Chasse for a meeting. Meanwhile, Sebastian has discovered the owner of the Silver Star. Marine Lance Corporal Andrea Gaines. She was killed, so her father, Holden Gaines, who was a Green Beret, accepted the medal on his daughter’s behalf. He was discharged from the service. Holden Gaines is convinced that the military was accountable for his daughter’s death. He fell off the grid two weeks ago and he’s now their quantity one particular suspect.
More than at Belle Chasse, Khoury is in significant problems with the Deputy Director of NCIS. It seems to have stemmed from previous transgressions. What is he speaking about? Also, Pride pulls crap like this all of the time and never ever gets in trouble…
Patton has a lead! He thinks Holden is going to use the bomb against the folks he believes are accountable for his daughter’s death. They are finishing a coaching exercising in Jackson, Mississippi.
Just before Pride can meet with the Deputy Director, he hops on a helicopter and heads to Jackson. Khoury joins him, even even though he warns her that it is a negative notion!
After they attain Jackson, they meet up with Colonel Freeman. Sebastian, LaSalle, and Gregorio are on their way. Pride and Khoury split up to search the coaching facility. Khoury heads to the basement, exactly where Holden will have access to the ducts. She finds Holden, but he currently has the canister of VX nerve gas hooked up to the vent. Khoury tries to speak Holden down.
Pride grills Colonel Freeman, he requirements to know what occurred to Andrea, Holden’s daughter. He tells him that he requirements to declassify the truth and share that truth with Pride and Holden.
Holden is distraught. He states that no one particular will give him an answer. Pride and Freeman show up. Pride tells him that Freeman has his answers, but Holden has to stand down.
Freeman admits that they received intel from an unreliable supply. It turned out to be an ambush. Colonel Freeman states that Andrea and two other people have been killed. He stated he was incorrect and that he produced a negative judgement contact.
Khoury manages to convince Holden to set the canister down. Way to go, Khoury!
Back at Belle Chasse, the Deputy Director tells Pride that he’s firing Khoury. Pride fights the outcome. He heads back to NCIS, exactly where everybody is waiting for him. He pulls Khoury aside and they privately go over the outcome. Khoury has been demoted, but she’ll stay at her spend-grade. But there’s extra! Pride has been placed back in charge of the group! He struck a deal to retain Khoury. Khoury is pissed. She can either accept the demotion or quit. Pride tells Khoury that the Deputy Director says, “This goes beyond what occurred yesterday.” Khoury does not share any insight on that comment.
Khoury is furious. She heads to her husband’s home, exactly where she threatens to quit and locate a job in the private sector. She states that she may perhaps have to travel a lot, but that is no large deal, appropriate? Her husband immediately talks her out of it. Primarily, for the sake of their daughter, who just got a spot on the soccer group.
Pride gets back on the road to head back to his mother’s location. Though he’s speaking to Rita and his mom, he sees some thing in the road and veers off. It all of a sudden seems that Pride wasn’t on the telephone just after all or if he was, he fell asleep at the wheel.
Pride is terrified.
Critique/Thoughts – An superb commence to season six! It is good to have Pride back in handle even so, it was fairly bogus that Hannah got the boot for some thing Pride has performed more than and more than once more. I’m curious about Hannah’s previous transgressions. Are they legit or does somebody have an axe to grind with her? What do you consider?
