NCIS season 15 episode 4 preview: Maria Bello debuts as Jack Sloane

NCIS season 15 episode 5There is no more reason to wait — on Tuesday, October 17, NCIS season 15 episode 4 is officially going to welcome Maria Bello to the cast! “Skeleton Crew” is the title of her first hour as a series regular, and what this story will bring are some opportunities to understand more in the way of what her character of Jacqueline “Jack” Sloane is like and how she operates with the rest of the team. She is filling the hole left by the departed Jennifer Esposito, and her part will offer up a chance to see a very different foil for Agent Gibbs. She’s a smart psychologist who has an ability to profile criminals, and her skill set is very much different than anyone else on the team. Over the course of the season you should start to understand that more, and see to boot a number of different, super-exciting things.

For this particular episode, though, we’re all about introductions. You’ll see Sloane, understand why she is there, and also see a little bit in terms of some of the cases and drama that surrounds her. For more, take a look at the attached synopsis.

NCIS season 15 episode 4 synopsis – “Director Vance welcomes NCIS Special Agent Jacqueline “Jack” Sloane (Maria Bello), a forensic psychologist he lobbied to transfer from California, to headquarters. Also, in the midst of a storm that has shut down Washington, D.C. and knocked out power, the NCIS team investigates the kidnapping of a sailor, which sends Torres and Bishop out to sea to track evidence, on NCIS, Tuesday, Oct. 17 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.”

We suppose that what this synopsis is a reminder of perhaps more so than any other thing is that it’s not like work completely stops when a new character comes into the show or someone else leaves. It’s probably a pretty accurate reflection of real-life circumstances to have things constantly changing, and that is precisely what you’re going to have a chance to see take place on the show here. With Bello entering the mix there will be some new opportunities that await the team, but also some challenges. We at CarterMatt are perhaps most excited to see what some of those challenges are, mostly because in the fifteenth season one of the biggest tests for NCIS season 15 is going to be seeing how some of these characters’ worlds are ultimately shaken up and altered by events around them. How do you make them different than everything that we’ve had a chance to see in the past?
