Webb returned from his eight month exile in Tierra De Fuego with a request to the JAG, Chegwidden (C), for the use of Mac (M). His cover has been that he’s a diamond dealer with an absent wife due to her pregnancy. Now he is supposed to make a diamond deal and must produce his “wife.” Mac received training in recognizing diamonds and a “pregnancy suit.” An al Qaeda terrorist named Sadik Fahd purchased 100 stinger missiles from a drug lord, Raul Garcia, for a large amount of coke. The stinger missiles were without circuit boards that made them fly straight which W was supplying for diamonds. Webb was out of his CIA territory and the area station chief told him that the operation was going to belong to both of them so he could get out of Paraguay too. Webb told M that he wanted her along specifically because there was a mole in the agency and he needed someone he could trust who could speak Farsi. He confessed to her that he “didn’t trust himself anymore because he was taking too many chances.”

Garcia led them into the country and double-crossed them by bringing his and Sadik’s henchmen. He tried to cheat on the deal but M discovered the cheap diamonds. Alvaro, their bodyguard, turned out to be acquainted with Sadik’s men and dropped his gun; but, W noticed his actions. They also saw Gunny who was undercover inside Garcia’s operation. After Garcia had the circuit boards he asked W to give him reasons “not to kill them.”

Jeremy Duncan’s conviction for stealing navy technology for use in videogames was being appealed by his civilian attorney, Harlan Bradford, claiming “deficient defense” in his previous trial when he was defended by Turner (T). Bud (B) was speaking for the government and, again, was portrayed as bumbling and inadequate. Turner had asked Harm (H) to “oversee” B so he held a “moot court” to help B prepare. Tiner (Ti) acted as Bradford and came up with some obscure reasoning that H told B to expect. During the hearing B was flummoxed and basically said that he “acknowledged Ts lack of aggressive defense but that the law only entitled the defendant to ‘adequate’ defense.” Turner stormed out of the room angry at B and then at H for listening to the “brain farts” of a law student. He told H that no matter what happened the panel would think he was “lazy and incompetent.”

Harm got out of jail and was back in his office torn apart by NCIS. He tried to get close to M but she was already going with W. He asked her not to go and she asked him why “he only got like this when she had one foot out the door and couldn’t respond?” Harm had bad dreams about M and W getting betrayed and killed and called Ws mother who said “Clayton is very protective of those he loves.” Harriet (Ht) was having pregnancy related discomforts and ended up talking to H because B wasn’t listening. When B gave H excuses for botching Ts appeal, claiming to have “lost confidence,” harm blew up at him and told him to “stop making excuses and start paying attention.”

Chegwidden tried several times to give an engagement ring to Meredith (Md) but first Ti screwed up his arrangements causing embarrassment, then Md did her scatterbrained routine allowing “damit” [Cs new dog] to eat the cake the diamond was in. She finally caught on and asked him if he was trying to propose, so C just gave her the ring.
