NCIS season 10 continues on Tuesday, March 26 with an episode called "Squall." Check out the episode synopsis and preview videos below to see what happens when a case reunites McGee with his father. 


Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


First up, let's take a look at the official synopsis of the episode from CBS:

A massive storm brings the NCIS team aboard the USS Borealis, where everyone becomes a suspect once the crime scene proves that Mother Nature wasn't the only culprit. Tension builds when McGee discovers that his estranged father, Navy Admiral John McGee, was on board during the incident. Jamey Sheridan (Homeland) guest stars as McGee's father, Navy Admiral John McGee.


In the preview video, we see that McGee has now joined the club of team members who will have to deal with their daddy issues while working on a case. Tony, Ziva, even Gibbs have had their dads involved in cases and now it's McGee's turn. 

Here are a few more things we know from watching the video:

  • McGee has been hearing "I have someplace to be" from his dad his whole life. Ouch. 
  • Gibbs is going to stand up for McGee, just as he has for his other team members who've had disrespectful dads. 
  • Abby encourages McGee to talk to his dad, but he says no one talks to the Admiral, they just listen.
  • Gibbs will have another showdown in interrogation with one of his team member's dads. 
  • Tony will give McGee some advice about fathers. 
  • McGee's father will bring him (and I'm guessing a few fans) to tears. 


In the sneak peek clip from the episode, we find Tony and Ziva watching the morning news reports about the previous night's storm. Tony decides to switch the channel until he finds a more, shall we say, appealing news report. 

Here are a few more things we know from watching the video:

  • Tony doesn't mind watching the news -- as long as it's delivered by a pretty anchor in a tight dress. 
  • Ziva thinks Tony's weather girl has a funny name. 
  • Tony knows a whole lot about the weather girl, because he has apparently visited her webpage many times. 
  • Tony and Ziva have very different guesses as to why McGee is late to work. 
  • Tony has hit another Lawrence of Arabia-esque dry spell. 
  • Gibbs comes in with a case and with the perfect line. 

What do you think now that you've seen clips from this episode of NCIS? Are you excited to finally meet the Admiral after all these years? How do you think things will end with McGee and his dad?

NCIS airs on Tuesday nights at 8pm on CBS.
