Hypnosis was the controversial focus of NCIS Season 17 Episode 5.
Marine Corporal Laney Alimonte was the unfortunate soul at the center of the case of the week.
It was hard not to feel for Laney, an insomnia sufferer with a cabinet full of drugs that weren't working for her.
Her insomnia was so bad that it was going to cause her to leave the Marines.
Desperate, she resorted to being hypnotized to see if that would let her sleep through the night.
It worked, but after she found a bloody gun in her refrigerator, she couldn't be sure what she did while under hypnosis.

Camryn Grimes, moonlighting from her daytime role as Mariah on The Young & The Restless, was fabulous as the tortured Laney.
This continues a long-running tradition of CBS soap actors popping up on primetime procedurals.
