Summary: - When a string of Christmas burglaries turns deadly, the evidence leads the NCIS team to Wade's adopted son, Danny (Christopher Meyer). Also, Lasalle and Brody tease Sonja about the high stakes of drawing Pride in the team's Secret Santa exchange.
- Easter Egg - When Pride closes the video conference with Sebastian and Sonja after discussing the acid melted door lock, a dialog window flashes on the video screen for a moment, indicting the use of Encryption Matrix: NX01. This is a reference to one of Scott Bakula's previous shows, Star Trek Enterprise. NX-01 was the designation of the titular ship on that show.
- We learn that Shalita Grant can sing.
- Brody and her mother made up.
- We learn that TesserT from tv.com is still a bitch.
Pride: What do you got, Sebastian?
Sebastian: Got the Freemans' front door lock. Uh, I can tell you what turned it into a Salvador Dali sculpture. It was acid. Uh, I figure out the particular formula, I might be able to trace it back to the manufacturer. I'm actually really close to cracking it. Check out this algorithm I made.(types) Oh. That's no, that's the wrong 'rithm. One second.
Sebastian: No, that's I can explain. Okay?
Percy: You naughty little elf.
Sebastian: I'm not being naughty; I'm just using a scientific method to figure out my Secret Santa, so that I can then send them e-mails anonymously with great gift ideas.
Patton: Sorry to interrupt your forecast Sebastian, but Patton Claus comes bearing gifts. The Navy installed location software into the commander's computer. I managed to remotely access his laptop, get his GPS signals, and...
Brody: Looks like it's on the move.
Sebastian: That's kind of like that app you can get where NORAD tracks Santa's sleigh on Christmas Eve. You ever get that?
Pride: so Laurel, haven't been late in 20 years. Not about to start now. Reveillon at Commander's. Usual table. Yeah. See you soon, baby.
