NCIS season 15: What’s coming in the months ahead?

NCIS season 15 episode 14 new tonightIs NCIS season 15 episode 14 new tonight on CBS? We’re sure that there is quite a large audience out there that would like to see it, especially given some of the hype that we know is out there online about it already. This episode, entitled “Keep Your Friends Close,” is meant to feature the return of Gabriel Hicks. We first saw this villain earlier this season, but he will be back both for this episode as well as the follow-up entitled “Keep Your Enemies Closer.”

Unfortunately, you are not going to be seeing NCIS season 15 episode 14 on the air tonight, largely because of the fact that there is the State of the Union airing across most networks and this is, clearly, something that many major networks do not want to deal with. They don’t want to air programming opposite one of the biggest political broadcasts of the year — and also one that all of the major networks are carrying. There is a chance, we suppose, for some surprising things to happen during the address … but this isn’t really the place to discuss any of that.

Instead, our focus here is mostly on the subject of looking ahead to whatever the remainder of the season will be. “Keep Your Friends Close” will air on CBS in one week’s time, whereas “Keep Your Enemies Closer” will air one week after that. We know that NCIS is planning to feature more of Bishop and Torres working together after their undercover mission earlier this season, and to go along with that we know that the entire team will get a chance to work alongside some notable guest stars. One of the more interesting casts that has already been announced is that of The Prince is Right host Drew Carey, who is looking to play some sort of military veteran — Carey is a veteran himself.

At some point beyond all of this the show will have to move forward into another pressing subject of conversation: How they are planning to write out Pauley Perrette and her character of Abby. Given how important she is to the series, this is an exit that is probably going to require even more of a deft touch than most. You can’t just get rid of Abby and not think that there will be backlash. There will. You just need to make it as loving a tribute as possible.
