‘NCIS’ season 12 spoilers: Mark Harmon’s Gibbs versus pirates

More news -Who’s in the mood for a little swashbuckling? While we have a hard time thinking that it is this type of pirates that we are going to see Agent Gibbs taking on during the October 21 episode of “NCIS,” wouldn’t that make things so much more fun?

Here is what we know about this installment right now. The title for the episode is “The San Dominick,” and the story revolves around a joint Coast Guard and NCIS training event that goes terribly awry. We have the return of Diane Neal as CGIS Agent Borin, and also a guest appearance from frequent “Supernatural” guest star Jim Beaver to boot. Take a look at the synopsis below for some further details:

“During a joint Coast Guard and NCIS training exercise at sea, Gibbs and CGIS Agent Borin spot a deceased man overboard, who is discovered to be a missing crew member from a ship 60 nautical miles away. Upon boarding the ship for questioning, Gibbs finds himself on a vessel that has been commandeered by pirates.”

This episode will probably feel a little more like “Captain Phillips” than anything, and it may be one of the best episodes that Mark Harmon has gotten a chance to do in a little while. He has remained the front of the series, but save for a few episodes here and there like the finale of last season, most of the time the supporting characters tend to take more of the limelight when it comes to personal stories.
