A Bowl of Cherries is the 20th episode of NCIS Season 14 and also the 326th episode of the entire NCIS series.
When a vice admiral's laptop is infected with ransomware, he enlists McGee and the NCIS team to track down the hacker before the computer virus eliminates his personal and professional files forever while Alex takes time off to assist her mother, Marie Quinn after she receives a "911" text.
- Alexandra Quinn's mother, Marie Quinn, is introduced for the first time.
- It is revealed that Marie Quinn is suffering from dementia. This ultimately would result in Alex taking an extended leave of absence with the Season Fifteen premiere.
