Sam and Callen are sent to bring in a defector from India. When they arrive they find Jemadar Thapa, the Gurkha they meet before there to bring her back. And while they talk things out, someone takes a shot and Sam is hit. They take the defector to the boat shed while Callen, Kensi and Deeks try to find the shooter. They later learn that the shooter's a Gurkha. Which makes Callen wonder if the defector is OK or if something else is going on.
