* In "Rekindled", Tony meets up with an arson investigator named Jason King he met when the latter was nine years old. Jason isn't too happy to see him and appears to hold a grudge against him for an unspecified incident with his sister. When the others probe, Tony reveals that twenty years ago, [[spoiler: when in Baltimore for a Final Four game, he was taking a walk trying to clear his head when he saw a townhouse on fire and heard Jason's calls for help. Tony managed to free Jason from his room, but then he heard Jason's four-year-old sister Amy trapped in her room. Tony tried to get there to save her, but the infrastructire and the wires that fell from the ceiling made it impossible. At that point, [[SadisticChoice Tony was forced to choose between saving Jason and letting Amy die or risk all three of them burning up to save Amy]]. Tony grabbed Jason and carried him out. The flashback to Jason begging Tony to go back as they ran out makes it even worse, and you can tell Tony was NOT happy with being forced to do it]].
** What makes this even worse is that Jason reveals to Abby that [[spoiler:the fire was set by an arsonist, and that they had never caught him. So the fact that he chose to be an arson investigator means that he wanted to help prevent people from suffering the same fate his little sister did]].
** During the end, [[spoiler:Tony tells Jason that there was nothing he could have done to save his sister, and that he learned that night that he couldn't save everybody. However, the fact that he managed to save Jason was the reason why he chose to become a cop, because for once in his life, he made a difference. Tony then tells Jason that while Amy was gone, they were still here and that they could still focus on the people that they could save. Jason promises he'll try.]]

*** YMMV, but it's one heck of a TraumaCongaLine for Luke. [[spoiler:He was getting ridiculed at school for being an adopted Iraqi-American, so turned to The Calling for guidance despite the love and support from his own family.

* Gibbs teaming up with the son of the Marine killed trying to protect his wife and daughter. We've spent so much time focusing on the loss of Shannon and Kelly that we've completely forgotten that someone else lost a loved one too. He never outright tries to stop the guy, but warns him of what he knows only too well--killing the man responsible won't bring his father back.
