NCIS - Daughters television review

NCIS’ latest case gets personal when Emily Fornell (Juliette Angelo) shows up in the emergency room with an opioid overdose. While NCIS first believes her to be a victim, it doesn’t take too long before Fornell (Joe Spano) discovers his daughter is an addict. The episode is notable for two guest-appearances, one directly tied to the Fornell storyline and one which leads into next season’s premiere. The first is the return of Melinda McGraw who appears as a ghost to haunt Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and push him into taking Emily’s case (despite a dubious jurisdictional claim). Gibbs has been haunted by several characters over the years, but Diane’s return caps a season-long theme of the grizzled agent letting his guard down more than at any point in the show’s history.

NCIS - Third Wheel television review

When a man on the run parachutes into the woods from an airplane wheel well, “Third Wheel” gives us the unlikely trio of Gibbs (Mark Harmon), Fornell (Joe Spano), and Brooks (Don Lake) hunting down a fugitive who had the bad fortune, like the two uninvited house guests, to interrupt Gibbs’ vacation by making his getaway just a couple of miles from his cabin. Using any excuse to get away from the bikering duo, Gibbs sets out on his own to catch the suspect (with the pair tagging along), not realizing he’s looking for two criminals. Even with the pair of jealous friends in tow, Gibbs manages to hunt down his prey.

NCIS - Love Thy Neighbor television review

It was the serial killer, in the cul-de-sac, with the hot tub. “Love Thy Neighbor” takes NCIS into the suburbs where the remains of a solider are found slowly cooking inside a hot tub (offering fans of the show one of the more gruesome murder scenes from the show’s 16 season run). The mystery plays into the suburb cliche of gossiping neighbors with hidden secrets and agendas, each of whom seems more than happy to point the finger at a different neighbor. Delving a bit into the victim not only helps NCIS find their killer but also catch a serial who has evaded capture for years.
