As Season 12 of NCIS begins, Gibbs - who just learned of his father Jackson's death as a result of a stroke on the NCIS Season 11 finale - is off to Russia with Tim. As NCIS approaches Season 12, for once there are few cliffhangers to resolve, although it looks like they waste little time with the new high-stakes peril Gibbs and McGee find themselves in. Embarking on a key mission that has Abby in fear for their safety - enough to take her fears to Director Vance himself - we know little about it excpect that CBS has spliced together the scenes in teasers for the new season in a way that leaves them subject to many different interpretations as to what kind of mission this is.
Gibbs: Banks? Banks? Talk to me Banks. Banks: Hannah. Gibbs: Hannah. Where you from Hannah? What hometown? Banks: I tried to steer clear, Gibbs. Couldn't shake it. Gibbs: Hey you are one hell of a pilot.
