NCIS: LA--Touch of Death

The opening scene is the discovery of a dead body (blood coming out the eyes and nose) in the bathroom of an airplane.  The victim is Sharon Walker.  The evil scientist, Jarrod Prodeman, 180 pounds, 5 foot 9 inches, escapes.  Query:  how does Jarrod get the liquid vials through airport security?   They were NOT in checked baggage.

Jarrod was a respected epidemiologist in Pittsburgh, but was caught cooking data in 2007 and disgraced.
Hedy Lange is introduced as operations manager, and notes that Danny and Chin are the first outsiders to set foot in the facility.  Line:  we're up to our asses in alligators.  Hedy tells Sam and G that they have been granted plenary power.  Hedy puts on black gloves to give Deeks a small pox vaccination.  Line:  the armpit is the center of pheremone production.

The teams go to Venice, CA.  Prodeman is caught.

Jarrod implicates Dr. Rachel Holden, an epidemiologist at the Malibu Cancer Institute.  Deeks and Danny trade insults about haircuts.  [to Danny:  is it bulletproof?]  Revelations 9: 13-21 is written on a white board in Holden's office.  For reference:


13 The sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the four horns of the golden altar that is before God. 14 It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. 16 The number of the mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand. I heard their number.
17 The horses and riders I saw in my vision looked like this: Their breastplates were fiery red, dark blue, and yellow as sulfur. The heads of the horses resembled the heads of lions, and out of their mouths came fire, smoke and sulfur. 18 A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that came out of their mouths. 19 The power of the horses was in their mouths and in their tails; for their tails were like snakes, having heads with which they inflict injury.
20 The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or walk. 21 Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.


Records show Rachel is leaving for Costa Rica the next day.  Gabriel Marchal stole smallpox vaccine.

Published research articles on pandemics.  In her most recent article, Holden propounds the guia theory that epidemics are a natural phenomenon.  Thin out the human herd through smallpox.  An order for 300 custom tee shirts.  Like the British giving infected blankets to native Americans.  [Lord Jeffrey Amherst first raised the possibility of giving the Indians infected blankets in a letter to Colonel Henry Bouquet, who would lead reinforcements to Fort Pitt.  See The Straight Dope ]

Rachel's words:  The earth is dying and we are the disease.  We've gone from 6 to 7 billion in 12 years.
