“NCIS” season 11, episode 24: “Honor Thy Father” airs tonight on CBS.
The NCIS team investigates whether a fire on a U.S. Navy ship that served as a secret detention site for indicted terrorists was accidental or an intentional diversion for an escape. Meanwhile, Gibbs travels to his childhood home following news of his father’s passing.
“NCIS” is based on the cases of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. From murder and espionage to terrorism and stolen submarines, special agents traverse the globe to investigate all crimes with Navy or Marine Corps ties. With liberal doses of humor, the show focuses on the sometimes complex and always amusing dynamics of a team forced to work together in high-stress situations.
The agents include special agent Anthony DiNozzo, an ex-homicide detective; special agent Ziva David, probably the most dangerous team member; and special agent Timothy McGee, an MIT graduate with a genius talent in the computer field. Forensic specialist Abby Sciuto also assists the team along with medical examiner Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard. Head of operations is NCIS director Leon Vance, who is an intelligent and highly trained agent.
“NCIS” season 11, episode 24 airs May 13 at 8 p.m. EDT on CBS. Spoiler video below:
