NCIS director Leon Vance will join Special Agent Nicolas Torres in the field shortly after the thrilling cr1me drama returns in just over a week for new episodes.
The current season of NCIS is still on hiatus, but a new episode will air by the end of February. As CBS viewers wait for the fateful Monday night, a sneak peek at another upcoming episode has revealed a dangerous new role for Director Vance (played by Rocky Carroll).
In an upcoming episode of NCIS, Vance will join Agent Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) on a high-stakes mission.
His risky new role on the team may cause problems for the NCIS director and, more importantly, his daughter.
A first look at episode 14, First Steps, has finally given fans their first glimpse of what’s in store when season 19 returns.
CBS’ most popular primetime drama is currently awaiting the conclusion of the Winter Olympics before resuming its iconic taskforce.
Thankfully, fans won’t have to wait long before NCIS returns for its regularly scheduled new episodes on Monday nights.
In the meantime, a new still from the upcoming episode teases a thrilling new mission for Torres and Vance.
Following episode 13, The Helpers, Vance will return to the field for the first time in his 15-year tenure on the show the following Monday.
“As NCIS investigates the d3ath of a reservist Navy SEAL surgeon, they’re forced to bring Vance’s daughter to help with a highly dangerous mission,” according to the official synopsis.
Vance and Torres are seen peering around a corner, clutching handguns and looking d3adly serious in the latest season of NCIS’ 19th season.
The NCIS director is about to embark on his most personal mission yet, with Vance’s daughter Kayla (Naomi Grace) in the mix.
Kayla, thankfully, has some level of NCIS training, so she’ll be more than capable of handling herself.
Despite this, the series has no qualms about k1ll1ng off beloved family members of the main characters, as evidenced by the unexpected d3ath of Tobias Fornell’s (Joe Spano) daughter last season.
Vance, who is rarely seen outside of the office, knows a thing or two about working in the field.
Hopefully, the director and his daughter will survive this upcoming mission unscathed, but nothing is ever certain in NCIS.
Meanwhile, viewers have been given a first look at the next episode, which will air at the end of February and feature the exciting return of Breena Palmer (Michelle Pierce) after a long absence.
Breena died off-screen last year after contracting C0V1D 19, but actor Pierce has been confirmed for a cameo in the upcoming installment, presumably via flashbacks.
“While investigating the d3ath of an intruder at Quantico, Jimmy and Kasie are exposed to a d3adly biotoxin, and the NCIS team calls on Doctor Carol Wilson (Meredith Eaton) for assistance as they race to find the antidote,” according to the synopsis.
“Torres also tries to divert Jimmy’s daughter, who has come to the office to spend the day with her father.”
The next few episodes appear to be focused on the family, as Dr. Jimmy Palmer (Brian Dietzen) also struggles to balance his work and personal life.
While fans will have to wait a little longer for NCIS to return, there is plenty more to look forward to, including the first-ever crossover with the new spin-off, NCIS: Hawaii.
