* The B-Plot of "Shoot The Messenger" has Vance's doctor thinking that he may have severe lymphoma, and the only way they can be sure is if they do a biopsy. He even keeps his kids LockedOutOfTheLoop until he absolutely knows for sure so they don't have to worry about possibly losing their father after their mother died the previous year. Thankfully, it turns out that it was sarcoidosis on the lungs, which is easily treatable.

Added DiffLines:

* During a case, Gibbs discovers that Fornell falsified evidence to get Hicks convicted of a serial murder. Fornell defends it on Hicks being guilty but Gibbs points out the evidence shows the murder was committed by a left-handed person and Hicks is right-handed. On the stand, Gibbs is forced to testify about what Fornell did and the man ends up losing his job with the FBI and a clear break in their long friendship.
** But the true tragedy comes when Hicks makes a slip of the tongue that makes Gibbs suspicious. He and Sloane check him out at a batting cage...and see Hick is a switch hitter, meaning he ''did'' commit the murder and Gibbs ruined Fornell's career for nothing.
** This comes up later as Fornell is now a P.I. and Gibbs has been refusing to talk to him as he can't handle the guilt over telling Fornell what he did. When he does, Fornell is hurt...not because of what happened but Gibbs not telling him sooner so they could work together to bring Hicks down.

* In a rather weird way, a good deal of "Dog Tags," at least if you happen to be McGee. Sure, it eventually turns out that [[spoiler: the dog was framed, not to mention secretly injured]], but it's kind of shocking to see Abby garner absolutely no sympathy for him, despite the fact he was nearly killed by a dog, and his injuries are clearly visible. Kind of sad, considering they've known each other for so long, and are very good friends.

** It's a small moment, but Vance's advice to Tim to enjoy every moment with Delilah counts too-- he loved and had a happy marriage with Jackie, a similarly "strong and intelligent woman," and clearly hasn't forgotten what happened back in Season 10.

** The small bit where he sees the younger version of himself kissing the female recruit he had a crush on. Even after all this time, even with the bliss he had with Shannon and Kelly, part of him still wonders WhatCouldHaveBeen with this other girl.

* It's revealed that Reeves goes to AA meetings although he refuses to actually talk. He gets close to Melissa, a woman who has just left her abusive boyfriend. Reeves sees her kidnapped and eventually hunts her down to where she's just killed her ex in self-defense. But the investigation eventually reveals Melissa set this whole thing up as she found her boyfriend cheating on her, killed him and was planning to sell secrets from his laptop. Reeves is naturally hurt when he confronts her but the kicker is when he sniffs her drink, discovers it's a rum with coke and realizes Melissa was faking being an alcoholic just to join the AA group. It drives him to a meeting where he starts to confess his own story of childhood abuse, clearly affected having bought the woman's con.
