NCIS Promo & Photos: "Patriot Down"

at . Comments

In this week's terrific episode (see our "Borderland" review), it became clear that while Gibbs may not have wanted the details of Abby's cold case to come to light, someone did.

The burning question is who - and how our hero, along with the rest of the team, responds to the shocking revelations from his past in the final two episodes of the seventh season.

Next week's "Patriot Down" picks up where we left off, and involves the death of a colleague that sends more shock waves through the NCIS ranks. Things are getting really heavy.

Here's CBS' first promo for the episode ...

Palmer: I take it you heard?
Gibbs: Mmm hmm.
Palmer: Yeah, she saw the baby and just....I guess she felt the same way we felt when we first saw him. Can't fault her for that, right?
Gibbs: You should go home.
Palmer: I will. Yeah Breena and I, we just wanted to get all this stuff out of the house. You know, we wanted to give it back as soon as possible.
Gibbs: We.
Palmer: Me. She's hurting too, but she is so much stronger. She's ready to try again. And me - I feel like I can't breathe. I never felt this bad in my life, Gibbs.
Gibbs: Well, just wait until it's 3:00 in the morning, and your kid's running 104. You're just getting started.
Palmer: That's the point. I'm not starting, you know? Maybe I never will.
Gibbs: Well then fight for it, Palmer! That's what you do. You fight for your family. And sometimes, you fight like hell just to have one.
Palmer: You want me to fight, I feel like I just went ten rounds with Joe Louis.
Gibbs: Do you want to be a dad, Palmer? Because right now, this is being a dad.
Palmer: Maybe I'm not ready.
Gibbs: You wouldn't feel the way you feel, right now, if you weren't ready.
