NCIS Season 17 Episode 11 Recap:
Episode 11 is titled ‘In the Wind’ and it brings with it a bad bit of news. Phin goes missing after Gibbs informs him about the death of his mom. When Phin asks if he can stay with Gibbs now, the latter replies: “we’ll see”.
Gibbs obviously makes the missing case very personal and teams up with Sloane to question a friend of Phin, who says that he had met Phin in the morning as he wanted to buy his bike. On the other hand, Gibbs asks his team to find Phin’s dad.
In another scene, Palmer and Kasie are at the morgue with the intention of examining Sahar’s body. Gibbs visits club owner Victor and Torres tags along. During the meet, Gibbs receives a call from Bishop saying that someone might have sighted the bike. Gibbs and Torres see the bike, chase it, and at the precise moment, Ziva shows up to offer a helping hand — quite unexpectedly.
But the guy on the bike is not Phin and the rider tells that he had bought it from a kid at the bus station — the team’s next venue. It is revealed that some ‘hippie girl’ had helped him buy a ticket to visit his aunt in Philadelphia. The crew reaches the bus but again, Phin has already been picked up by someone in a van.
As the episode progresses, Kasie checks security footage from the bus station and learns that Victor had whisked away Phin in the van and is currently at the airport. At the moment, Gibbs shows up, and Phin reconciles with him. At the station, Sloane tracks down Micki and George, Phin’s foster parents, and they are happy to take Phin in.
Ziva finally prepares for her departure and exists with Palmer to the airport so that she can reunite with her family in Paris.
