ÂWhen Navy reservist and psychologist, Robert Banks, is found hanging in his home, it appears to be more than just a suicide after the NCIS learn that the man was working on a highly-classified case for the Defense Department and someone on the inside was using subterfuge to slowly drive him insane. While Gibbs goes toe-to-toe with Dr. Samantha Ryan, the ambiguous director of PsyOps, who seems to know more than sheâ€™s letting on, the team tracks down Banksâ€™ field operator, Brian Mitchell, who points them in the direction of a PsyOps lieutenant dismissed by Banks six months prior. The team links the lieutenant to Banksâ€™ death, but realize that the man is being framed by another PsyOps liaison â€" Mitchell. In the end, Banksâ€™ death was for far more personal reasons than they originally believed: Mitchell was obsessed with Banksâ€™ teenage daughter and killed her father for her so she could receive his $4 million life insurance policy.
