Our team investigates the death of Navy Lieutenant, Emma Paxton, when her body is found at Swiftcast, a major internet service provider, after an attempted robbery in the facility shuts down all the electricity in the greater DC area. With no electricity we watch our team solve the murder the old fashioned way. While the security guards who were part of the crossfire are questioned, our team realizes that nothing was stolen from SwiftCast. Tony and Ziva track down the house that they believe the suspects are hiding out in and discover two bodies, one of them being one of the security guards involved in the shootout. The plot thickens as this turns out to be more than just a robbery. Paxton position working in the entertainment division was just a cover for her highly classified position with the National Security Agency. Paxton's iris was hard-coded to allow her access to all major security companies which would have given her free access to SwiftCast. We discover that Paxton was kidnapped for the access she was able to provide in order to break into Swiftcast to steal user data. While being held captive, Paxton poisoned herself with medication from her kidnapper's medicine cabinet that affected the vessels in her eyes hoping to block the iris scanner from allowing her access. She wasn't part of the robbery she was trying to stop it.
