NCIS Preview: An Alibi For an Unusual Episode?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Lawyer. Not the most trustworthy profession, at least on NCIS, but one that will take center stage Tuesday in "Alibi," the eighth installment of the show's 11th season.

Complicating matters is the fact that this lawyer has a history in law enforcement, so it will be interesting to see how she meshes, or clashes, with the team in that regard.

According to CBS, the team must "re-examine a hit-and-run murder case when a former FBI agent turned lawyer confides in Gibbs that her client’s confidential alibi is solid.”

On the character development front, look for Tony to continue his arc of self-reflection, which has been a major theme this fall without she-who-must-not-be-named in his life.

Check out the promo for NCIS Season 11 Episode 8 below ...

This is the last NCIS episode before the arrival of Bishop (Emily Wickersham), an NSA analyst who is going to be a regular character, right from her introduction.

Wickersham was promoted to series regular, so the show clearly likes what the relatively unknown actress brings to the table. We just don't know what that is yet.

What are your hopes for next week's episode, and beyond? What do you think of the 11th season so far, and where would you like to see it go the rest of the way?

The case was interesting, but I am so tired of teenager hormonal Tony. Whatever "growth" they were tryng to show this episode was totally negated by his behavior toward the "smokin' hot women." I tried, but I can't watch this show anymore.

Why because Im not closed minded that I don't need to see half naked adults having sex to have a good time tell me how I am stupid or are you?

What show are you watching because there has never been a scene between Tony and Ziva where they are half naked and engaged in a love scene. Tony had more love scenes with your favorite female Jeanne Benoit. Did you find those scenes to be distasteful too? Obviously you are a sexually repressed person and I agree with the others who say your comments should be censored. You are offensive and closed minded.

Are you kidding? You are one of the most closed minded on this site. And who said anything about naked people and sex? You are openly hostile against Cote and you should be censored,

Until the Nov 5 episode with Gibbs and is father, the show has had no substance or depth. However this episode had strong acting between Harmon and Wade. As the characters McGee and DiNozzo, I'm tired of their version of Charlie Brown (McGee) and Lucy (DiNozzo). I'm waiting for DiNozzo to trip McGee.

Since I am a huge Cote/Ziva/ TIVA fan I am not enjoying the season. A few bright moments, but otherwise fairly blah.

Gibb's uncle, grandfather and love interest?
Tony's mom, brother, cousin and love interest?
Tim's mom, return of his dad and sister?
Abby's sister, aunt, brother and cousin?
Vance's mother in law, dad, mom and sister?
Jimmy's sister and brother?
Ducky's dad, brother, uncle and love interest?

NCIS Season 11 Episode 8 Quotes

McGee: Tony what's going on? Do you have a drinking problem?
Tony: No. No, I just....I joined this men's support group. Meets in the church hall two nights a week.
McGee: You serious?
Tony: Uh huh. I know - it doesn't sound like me. But, with the past year I just wanted to shake things up a little bit. Meet some new people. This guy at the gym told me about the group and I thought it sounded like a good idea. And it is. It's fun. The Rev drove me to Quantico the other morning. Interesting guy. He's helping me be less judgemental.

Tony: Sgt. Dunne, Olivia Chandler and Wendell Kaiser all have one thing in common. They all go to AA meetings.
McGee: Probably where they met.
Tony: The sergeant and the trophy wife are lovers. The desk clerk at the Chevy Chase Lodge said that they were regulars. It's just like that movie "Body Heat". William Hurt and Kathleen Turner. God. She was really something, boss. A head turner. Anyway, they were young lovers and they wanted the rich husband's money and him out of the way.
McGee: On the other hand, you've got Wendell Kaiser who's deep in debt to his bookie and needs him off his back.
Tony: So they help each other and switch murders.
McGee: While Kaiser was in New York, Dunne killed the bookie with Olivia's help. She drove him. Her car was in the vicinity. Who would ever suspect them? I mean there's no connection, no motive.
Tony: Tomorrow, Sgt. Dunne is going to deploy. Olivia Chandler's off to Jamaica. And I'm betting that while they're away, her husband's going to have a terrible accident at the hands of Mr. Kaiser here - a man with whom he has no connection.
