NCIS Preview: An Alibi For an Unusual Episode?

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?

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.
