NCIS: Hawai'i - Silent Invasion

A break-in and double murder reminds Jesse (Noah Mills) of an old case closed by a former NCIS agent Tennant (Vanessa Lachey) got fired from NCIS after she took over the assignment at Pearl Harbor. The longer NCIS investigates the case the more Tennant begins to wonder if the person NCIS put in prison years go is actually innocent of his crime and that Carter ignored evidence and witnesses that didn't fit the confession he coerced from the suspect while in custody. There's plenty of animosity here, and uncovering of wrongdoing by the former agent, but there's no payoff or consequences given what is uncovered.

Connecting several similar crimes against Navy personnel all who used the same insurance agency leads to a suspect that fits the description of the suspect they are searching for and ties to the insurance company leading to a search of all houses of potential targets for the robber and eventually catching up to the true killer. The episode's B-story is all filler involving Tennant's daughter (Mahina Napoleon), soccer tryouts, and a bully which has a tenuous connection to Tennant's trouble with an ex-employee at best (despite how the writers attempt to weave the two together).
