NCIS to Tackle Military PTSD in Two-Episode Arc
NCIS has always been a military show with its finger on the pulse of the issues of today. As such, the CBS hit is planning to tackle the ongoing issue of PTSD in a two-episode arc this fall. According to Zap2It:
"In a two-episode arc, we will meet the Westcotts, a family of marines who try to console their son when one of his fellow soldiers - his best friend - is taken from him by an unknown threat."
"The arc will explore the PTSD many soldiers experience when returning from combat."
It's unclear when this storyline will air, but November sweeps feels like a good bet. Last year, the show aired a terrific two-part arc ("Engaged") that sent Gibbs & Co. into Afghanistan.
