NCIS: Hawai'i - Past Due / Dies Irae

For the two-part season finale the show taps into a case from Tennant's (Vanessa Lachey) days in the CIA. Opening with Tennant being found at a murder scene, the leader of the team spends little time with them over the two-part episode as she heads halfway around the world for answers in search of a ghost she believed was killed years ago. The episode gets Whistler (Tori Anderson) into the field helping Tennant, although getting left behind at times, while leaving Lucy (Yasmine Al-Bustami) to worry at after both her boss and her girlfriend (who doesn't exactly blend in to her surroundings).

The episodes are notable for the return of Maggie Shaw (Julie White) who is also tied to the case, an unexpected appearance from another NCIS character, who simply disappears afterwards in some awkward writing to explain his segment was likely shot completely separate from the rest of the episode, and the introduction of John Swift (Henry Ian Cusick) whose investigation takes over the team in Tennant's absence. It's in these gung-go Tennant episodes where the show starts to feel a bit more Hawaii Five-0 than NCIS, although much of the two episodes don't actually take place in Hawaii. It's unclear if Swift will be sticking around or not, although his final scene suggests at least one change to the show's cast moving into its Third Season.
