A group of film students working on a horror movie scene in the woods discover the skeleton of a dead marine. Gibbs recognizes that the murder is identical to the MO of Celia Roberts, a SerialKiller he convicted eleven years ago, so he sends [=McGee=] to Maryland Women's Prison to retrieve a written confession. However, while [=McGee=] is there, a guard suddenly ends up dead, and the prisoners riot out of fear that everybody in the visitor's center will be blamed for the murder. [=McGee=] manages to convince them to appoint him as their negotiator by offering the services of NCIS to investigate the crime, with the promise that only the murderer will be punished. In exchange, the prisoners will release the visitors and an injured guard, leaving himself and two other guards as hostages. The warden agrees to the terms, but issues a deadline for the inmates to surrender by sundown. This gives Team Gibbs seven hours to uncover the true identity of the murderer and save [=McGee=]'s life.
