Bishop was accused of leaking classified NSA documents about a secret operation where Syrian refugees were used as bait to lure an Al-Qaeda leader out of hiding. The information leak, which occurred 10 years ago while she was still working with the NSA, appeared to get into the hands of arms dealers.

Director Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll) tried to defend Bishop. He told her to go home until things settled down. However, she came back to the office and said she was responsible for the information leak. Bishop then quit and left the building. McGee goes after her to ask her what happened.

At first, Bishop says she doesn’t want to talk about what happened with the NSA leak, but McGee (Sean Murray) refuses to back down. “You and I have been through too much together for you to box me out like this,” says McGee. Bishop decides to talk, telling McGee she wasn’t in agreement with the NSA’s treatment of Syrian refugees. However, McGee doesn’t understand how capturing Al Qaeda leaders could be wrong.

Bishop explains capturing the leaders wasn’t what was wrong. She didn’t agree with the methods used for making the captures. “Using innocent people as pawns—that’s wrong,” says Bishop. However, McGee says he dug deeper into the NSA intel and found that some of the refugees were foreign fighters using civilians as a cover. Bishop says the information is just from one source and it was unreliable.

McGee asks Bishop if she has regrets about the leaked documents. She says her only regret is not releasing the documents sooner. However, McGee says she should have thought about filing a whistleblower report. McGee goes to Gibbs’ house to talk about Bishop. He’s upset because Bishop could face up to 20 years in prison for what she did. He asks Gibbs how he can help her, but he says there’s really nothing he can do.
