Fornell is back and now a private investigator in NCIS season 15 episode 14, but not everyone from the team will be happy to be working with him. "Keep Your Friends Close" sees the team connect with him because Fornell was hired to find the missing Navy commander whose murder they're investigating.

Also, when the victim is linked to the highly-publicized trial of convicted investment advisor Albert Hathaway, Bishop and Torres interview him.

See McGee demonstrate his "superhuman agent powers":



When Bishop arrives at work, she learns from Torres that McGee has cracked a case for another office. But that's not all that McGee has gotten done. He's also had the floor mats in their cars replaced. And he's compiling a video story anthology for his twins. He's super dad with superhuman agent powers (which include sensing a dead body?), according to Bishop.

It looks like Fornell's working out of his garage, but don't let the corkboard fool you. And don't let the first impression that their victim was a boy scout fool you either. As they see -- after McGee drools over Fornell's tech a bit -- he got into a fight with another Navy commander, Evans. However, Evans is stationed on the USS Hoover, in port at Norfolk, and Fornell couldn't get access to board without his credentials.

He can't turn to Gibbs for help. Gibbs is apparently avoiding him and clearly doesn't want him on the case. When Torres suggests he feels bad for ratting him out, Fornell doesn't understand why he would since he did the right thing. In fact, he'd like the team to investigate for him. They immediately refuse to do so.
