Lee's daughter, Amanda, almost escapes. In an attempt to follow Lee's pickup man at the drop, Tony and McGee do a stakeout at a coffee shop, but it does not go well. To search for Lee's daughter, Tony and Ziva, with the guidance of McGee and others, go hiking in a woodland, and they find a decrepit old house with a secret room (where Amanda's kidnapper has kept her) plus the body of a dead man. Tony, Abby, and Gibbs show dislike and intolerance toward Lee. Amanda turns out to be not Lee's daughter but rather an adopted sister. The next day Gibbs himself does the stakeout on the inside of the shop, then the routine takes an unexpected turn, and the pickup man leads the gang down a different path. Vance accuses Gibbs and McGee of having committed treason. However, the team figure out everything, they get the bad guy, and the story reaches a sad end, during which Gibbs takes a round.
