“NCIS” season 14 episode 12 did not air this week sadly. The show is on a short break. It will resume with the episode titled “Off the Grid” next week.

The last episode titled “Willoughby” observed Qasim (Rafi Silver) and Bishop (Emily Wickersham) working on a case together. In the course of their mission, Qasim is badly injured. His life is in danger as he has been shot amid the operation. He is in serious condition and is hospitalised.

Gibbs takes on an undercover mission

As revealed by the official synopsis of the episode, Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) will spot the brother of the most wanted criminal suspect. To find out more information about the criminal as to where he is holed up, he would go undercover and work with the infamous anti-government militia. Perhaps, in the forthcoming episode, Gibbs will need a serious backup.

Bishop and Reeves will work on an off-the-record mission

Furthermore, in “NCIS” season 14 episode 12, Bishop will collaborate with Reeves (Duane Henry) for an off-the-record mission. What the mission will be remains a mystery. However, it is suspected that both of them will work together upon Qasim’s conditions and figure out what got him shot and injured so badly. Qasim was on support system fighting for his life in the last episode. Bishop and Reeves would possibly work together on stopping the person from causing more damage.

Episode 12 is helmed by Rocky Carroll, who essays the role of Leon Vance (the director of NCIS). He has also previously directed episodes of the show. In the last season, he donned director’s hat for episode titled “Déjà Vu” as well as “Viral.” Furthermore, in season 12, he helmed “We Build, We Fight.”

“NCIS” season 14 episode 12 has been delayed by a week. It will air on Jan.17 on SBS at 8PM ET. It also airs on Channel Ten in Australia.
