NCIS Season 17 Episode 15 Recap:
The episode begins with Sloane, who gets flowers and chocolates from a secret, mysterious admirer. Obviously everyone thinks it is Gibbs but he says he had only thought to gift her something. On the other hand, the nude corpse of Navy Capt. Alan Wales is discovered with an arrow through his heart. His last conversation was with JAG lawyer Stacy Gordon, whom he had met on a Navy dating app called Fleet Date.
When the NCIS team reaches her house to question Stacy, they find that she is pursuing one of Gibbs’s old friends called Phil Brooks. They then discover another dead body with an arrow and come to the conclusion that a serial killer is on the loose. MPD detective Tom Logan delivers a file about Craig Olson, who is also dating Stacy. She has all her alibis in place but further investigation proves that her former husband Mark Tucker had been killed in a home accident.
Torres, after recovering from his accident, joins Bishop to meet Sheriff Mary Talbot, who had been in charge of the investigation on Tucker’s death. Apparently, a drunk Tucker had fallen down the stairs and died. It is also revealed that Stacy owns and runs a youth archery camp. Additionally, a strand of hair found in the feathers of the arrow is brought in as a test sample. Phil collects Stacy’s hair from her house and luckily, it does not match with the one found on the arrow.
Kasie discovers that both the bodies have traces of meth and the team tracks down a supplement dealer named Matthew Duques. But Duques has a rotator cuff injury and he could not fire a bow and arrow. The crew then again questions Stacy, who admits that she had killed Tucker because of his abusive nature. Further questioning leads them to suspect Tom Logan, who has a sweet spot for Stacy. Apparently, he wanted to stop those men who had hurt Stacy.
