NCIS season 15 episode 17 preview: Ducky and Gibbs’ discovery

NCIS season 15 episode 17NCIS season 15 episode 17 carries with it the title of “One Man’s Trash” and all signs seem to suggest that a fun episode is coming up. After all, it’s not too often that you see this show get a little bit meta and bring in someone who fans may know from somewhere else.

In this case, we are specifically referring to Mike Wolfe from American Pickers fame, who serves as a jumping-off point for Gibbs and Ducky.

The NCIS season 15 episode 17 synopsis that CarterMatt has for you below gives you a little more of a sense as to what is coming up:

“One Man’s Trash” – Gibbs and Ducky see an antique war stick on television that could be the missing murder weapon to a 16-year-old cold case, on NCIS, Tuesday, March 13 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Mike Wolfe of “American Pickers” guest stars as himself.

Fans can consider that validation that Ducky’s got a role to play within this episode, and we don’t think that it’s any coincidence that this cold case is 16 years old. It would have taken place just before the events of the backdoor pilot. (Remember when JAG was on the air?)

Maybe in resolving this case Ducky and Gibbs could find a way to get some sort of peace — we don’t necessarily think that it has haunted them for the entirety of their lives, but somewhere in their subconscious we imagine that some of the thoughts have to be there about what they could’ve done differently within this case. This marks an opportunity for a second chance, and hopefully this also gives us a chance to see some great performances from Mark Harmon and David McCallum.
