With a case about a tourist and some drama playing out between two “NCIS: Hawai’i” characters, we take a look at Monday night’s episode.

It’s called “The Tourist” and it had a lot going on.

Special Agent Jane Tennant, played by Vanessa Lachey, and the NCIS team is on an abduction case. It involves Navy Lieutenant Adam Parrish, who was on his honeymoon with his wife, Kayla Barlow. She disappears in a crowd and gets spotted driving away by someone. Parrish reported it as an abduction, saying Kayla would not leave with a stranger.

Parrish was recording a video of his wife dancing as she disappeared. He believes she’s kidnapped. Parrish also got footage of the car because he was still recording. Parrish handed over the video to Tennant’s team, hoping they can find something.

Kayla is a social media influencer who traveled the world. Tennant and Co. think Kayla gets taken as a way to get to Parrish. They found the man who drove away with Kayla dead.

Security footage shows Kayla leaving Casings’ body, as Celebrity Laundry pointed out.

‘NCIS: Hawai’i’ Case Reveals Casings Sent Coded Messages on Instagram to Kayla

On “NCIS: Hawai’i,” the abductor becomes the victim. Casings was sending coded messages on Instagram to Kayla. Tennant’s aunt was on the island visiting, she’s former CIA and suspects there’s more to the code.

Meanwhile, Tennant finds out Kayla is no influencer. Casings bought out 95 percent of her followers. She only had 20,000 real followers. She used traveling as an excuse for something. Most importantly, they suspected CIA but DIA Special Agent Whistler shut things down.

Jane has to drop it. On the other hand, she can’t. The team searched social media and found a post from Kayla to her husband. She asked him to meet her at the dolphins’ sea park. In addition, the team found Kayla and they got her to turn herself over to them. Someone ambushed Kai and he lost sight of Parrish.

Kayla Fesses Up That She’s CIA, Helped People Defect From Hostile Countries

Parrish gets help out of the water park by someone. Kai sees Parrish gone. What happens? He might have been nabbed because her enemies wanted to use him to get to his wife. Kayla later admits to being CIA. Subsequently, she used her traveling background to help people defect from hostile countries.

Her last job was helping a Russian oligarch’s wife get out. The Russians were looking for her and they were operating on American soil. They killed her handler.

In conclusion, we see Kate and Lucy have a moment. It’s quite a moment as they both kiss.
