NCIS season 10 continues Tuesday October 30 in an episode called "Namesake." Check out the preview videos below to find out what happens when Gibbs meets the man he was named after. 


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



In the preview video, we see that though the team at NCIS is doing their best to make it look like the episode is Halloween-themed, my bet is that it probably will have nothing to do with the holiday at all. Instead we see that the team is put on a case that has a connection to the man that Gibbs' father named him after. 

Here are a few more things we learned in the video:

  • There might be a new guy in Abby's life (plus, I really, really love those stockings she's wearing). 
  • Gibbs apparently gets shaken by this case. 
  • It seems that Jackson and the original Leroy Jethro didn't leave on the best of terms the last time they saw each other. 
  • Gibbs is going to find out the truth about what happened between LJ and his dad.


In the first clip from the episode, we find Tony and Ziva working on a case. Whether or not it is the same case that is connected to Leroy Jethro remains to be seen, but I'm thinking that it's a very strong possibility. If so, then I feel that the mystery of LJ just got a little deeper. 

Here are a few more things we learned in the clip:

  • Tony is comparing cases to famous movies again. 
  • Tony will use any excuse to quote The Godfather
  • Ziva still finds Tony funny, even when she's unimpressed with his movie quotes. 


In the final clip from the episode, we find Gibbs meeting up with his namesake and the two of them find out that they have more things in common than just their names. 

Here are a few more things we learned in the clip:

  • OMG it's Lando Calrissian!! (sorry, I had to get that out of my system). 
  • LJ is apparently living in a retirement community/home. 
  • Gibbs and LJ both tried multiple marriages and neither of them could make those marriages work. 
  • LJ was very happy to hear that Gibbs had joined the Marines. 
  • LJ was Gibbs' hero growing up and a big influence on Gibbs joining the Corps. 

What do you think after watching the clips and preview from this episode of NCIS? Are you excited to meet the original Leroy Jethro? What do you think his connection could be to their case?
