To all team members Dom, using his cellphone, broadcasts messages seeking help; they respond; G, Sam, and Kensi find his car, unoccupied and very bloody; there's no sign of Dom; Hetty tells the team to do whatever may be necessary to find him. At first there's no trace; then Eric catches a lead; G, Sam, and Kensi pursue it to a vacant house; they find a body and other evidence but not Dom; Eric gets another lead; G, Sam, and Kensi trace it to a hospital, and they find a connection. Hetty brings in some high-tech help; G makes a phone call and negotiates a swap, which turns into a gunfight; G makes a second deal, which takes them to an empty van. G learns that the kidnappers did their deed for hire, but the motive for the abduction is still unknown. Eric remains missing; his teammates personally deal with his absence in their respective ways.
