It wasn't meant to happen like this, we were all supposed to come down from that rooftop. Kate wasn't supposed to die like that. She was meant to retire at 50 and live out her life, fulfilling her dreams.

I couldn't move from the spot where she lay, dead, it was the shock I think. The paramedics were called, and Ducky and he dealt with Kate, but who was going to deal with those left behind, the living dead – Gibbs and me.

It was Gibbs who got me down from the rooftop, he took my hand and slowly led me away, once we got back to his place – how we got there, I'll never know – he stood me in the shower and washed away the blood and then he took me to his bed and we held each other all night.
