On the Christmas episode of NCIS
, it was, well, Christmas time but the NCIS
team wasn't standing under mistletoes and exchanging presents. The were dragged in to a Metro double homicide case, a very curious one because the fingerprints discovered matched up with those of Ned Quinn, a Vietnam veteran who Ducky pronounced dead over twenty years ago. Apparently, the team found the very much alive Quinn at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on Christmas Eve. Yet just as it looked like they could just turn him over to Metro, as usual Gibbs being Gibbs sensed that there was more to the case.
So no holiday break for the team as they worked through Christmas to discover that Quinn had been a meth addict after returning from Vietnam, faking his death after his house burned down so that his family – an ex-wife and baby daughter – would get full benefits. He did odd jobs, including setting up Christmas decorations that preceded his being framed up at the scene of the crime. Using his descriptions, meanwhile, the team was able to discover new evidence to bring them to the real murderers.
Tonight's episode of NCIS
should be a real treat to fans of Tim McGee (Sean Murray
), when he becomes trapped in a women's prison after inmates riot and take over. The murder of a prison guard was the precursor to this riot, and the NCIS team must get to the bottom of the case while McGee is virtually held hostage by the women. Is it true that getting stuck in a women's prison is every guy's fantasy?
Tune in to CBS tonight to find out if McGee is one of these guys.
