Season 16 Episode 4 Photos Third Wheel – “Third Wheel” – Gibbs’ quiet vacation at his remote cabin is interrupted by a surprise visit from Tobias Fornell (Joe Spano) and Navy Captain Phillip Brooks (Don Lake), as well as a call from asking for his help locating a robber hiding in the woods near him, on NCIS, Tuesday, Oct. 16 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) is more than just an action drama. With liberal doses of humor, it’s a show that focuses on the sometimes complex and always amusing dynamics of a team forced to work together in high-stress situations.
NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, a former Marine gunnery sergeant whose skills as an investigator are unmatched, leads this troupe of colorful personalities. Gibbs, a man of few words, only needs a look to explain it all. The team includes NCIS Special Agent Timothy McGee, an MIT graduate with a brilliance for computers; NCIS Special Agent Eleanor “Ellie” Bishop, a mysterious mixture of analytic brilliance, fierce determination and idealism who specializes in international threat assessment and global preparation; the charismatic, unpredictable and resilient NCIS Special Agent Nicholas “Nick” Torres, who has spent most of his career on solo undercover assignments; and NCIS Special Agent Jacqueline “Jack” Sloane, who built her reputation as the agency’s premier forensic psychologist and enjoys challenging Gibbs.
Assisting the team is medical examiner Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard, who knows it all because he’s seen it all – and he’s not afraid to let you know it; Ducky’s protégé, the naïve Jimmy Palmer, who graduated from assistant to fully licensed medical examiner who now runs the morgue and Forensic Scientist Kasie Hines, Ducky’s former graduate assistant who impressed Gibbs with her keen forensic skills during a critical time for the team.
Overseeing operations is NCIS Director Leon Vance, an intelligent, highly trained agent who can always be counted on to shake up the status quo. From murder and espionage to terrorism and stolen submarines, these special agents investigate all crimes with Navy or Marine Corps ties. Begins its 16th season Tuesday, Sept. 25 on the CBS Television Network.
