NCIS: Hawai'i - The Next Thousand

The murder of a Marine in the jungle during survival training sends Kai (Alex Tarrant), Jesse (Noah Mills), and Tennant (Vanessa Lachey) looking for the other members of the group while Whistler (Tori Anderson) teams up with Hanna (LL Cool J) to investigate the group's recent actions and their culpability in the disappearance of a local bartender. All evidence points to one member of the squad being responsible both for the jungle murder and the missing bartender, which seems even more likely when more of squad turn up dead, although Whistler believes there is a larger story that the Marines are attempting to hide.

While its nice to see Whistler being used as more than just Lucy's (Yasmine Al-Bustami) girlfriend, and seeing her shine a bit on her own, Lucy's unexplained absence for what is otherwise an everyone on-deck episode does feel odd. The pairings of Hanna with various members of the group continue. I don't know that this one is as good as some of the others, but Hanna's advice does push Whistler in the right direction on the case. The episode is also notable for Tennant's concussion-induced hallucination in the jungle (which feels more odd than anything else, but possibly may lead into a new subplot?) and a small bit of the search taking place outside the jungle on the lava fields which look terrific and aren't a location regularly covered by the show.
