NCIS: Mars - Cabin Fever

Reminding me of Castle's 2015 episode "The Wrong Stuff," NCIS comes in on an investigation involving the death inside a top-secret Mars simulation. The nature of the simulation, and red tape involved, keep NCIS outside the habitat where the other astronauts are training allowing only Ernie (Jason Antoon) access which becomes an issue when they realize everyone inside, including Ernie, is being exposed to dangerous gases that led to the death of one astronaut and odd behavior of others as well. 

Along with providing some background for Ernie, the episode also offers some more of Lucy (Yasmine Al-Bustami) and Ernie's friendship as she helps walk him through his job inside, and worries about him. Although the episode doesn't really have a B-story, it does involve a late twist for the true reason for the sabotage of the habitat and a running gag involving what each member of the team wanted to be as children.
