NCIS Season 17 Episode 19 Recap
In episode 19, a body is uncovered at the Navy Recruiting Office in one of the nearby dumpsters. NCIS takes over the investigation from MPD and with some help from the latter, discovers that the victim’s name is Daniel Spagnolo, a petty criminal. On the other hand, Palmer and Kasie have breakfast together. This is when they meet some bullies — who later turn out to be thieves.
They end up robbing the jewelry store at the opposite side of the eatery and as a result, one of the gang members gets wounded from gunshots fired by armed guards. Since the crooks cannot make it back to the car on time, they return to the diner and take everyone hostage, including Palmer and Kasie.
NCIS finds out about the crisis from the news and tries to negotiate with the gang to ensure the safety of their teammates. Inside, Kasie notices a pregnant woman and asks the thieves if they could release her. But the woman says she is fine, which seems a bit odd. The name of the thieves are Lenny, Bobby, and Max, and Max is the leader.
It is also revealed that Max had killed one of his mates earlier. NCIS connects the dots and discovers that the body they found in the morning belonged to the fourth man. In the midst of the hostage situation, a wounded Bobby succumbs to his injuries.
Since all the robbers had wrapped the diamonds in condoms and ingested them, Max asks Palmer to cut open Bobby. But Palmer has a sudden plan and he says that the condom has ruptured inside. This causes the rest of the gang to freak out and Lenny turns himself in. Gibbs sneaks up on Max and catches him. Yes, finally the case is handled and everyone is safe to leave the diner.
