Love Thy Neighbor is the 2nd episode of NCIS Season 16 and also the 356th episode of the entire NCIS series.
After a Navy Lieutenant is found murdered in his hot tub, the team interviews several families in the victim's peculiar neighborhood with the team soon discovering that there's a serial killer operating in the neighborhood while Torres must face the consequences after a volatile night out with Palmer.
- Torres is revealed to have kept Reeves's sunglasses after his death.
- Ducky and Palmer both referenced the events of The Meat Puzzle (episode) and Royals and Loyals (episode).
- Although this is the first episode to show Palmer being arrested onscreen, he had earlier implied in the episode Being Bad (episode) that he had been arrested before then during his youth.
