When the NCIS season 15 finale “Date with Destiny” airs on CBS come Tuesday, May 22, there are many big moments that you should expect to see during it. That is especially the case for Maria Bello and her character of Jack Sloane.
We’ve touched here and there on Sloane’s past since her arrival earlier this season, but during this episode an especially traumatic part of her story is about to come back in the form of a man who once held her hostage. She thought that he was dead but over the course of this hour, she may start to get some evidence that he is actually still among the living. As you would likely presume given what we are talking about here, this is going to cause a few problems. Over the course of the hour the NCIS team is going to do whatever they can in order to help her before she ends up hurting both herself and those close to her. The stakes have never been higher for Sloane so far this season.
For a little more information, check out the NCIS season 15 finale synopsis that CarterMatt has for you below:
Sloane (Maria Bello) is adamant that a man who held her hostage and tortured her years ago in Afghanistan, and was believed to have been killed following her rescue, is alive and in D.C., leading Vance (Rocky Carroll) and Gibbs (Mark Harmon) to fear she is willing to risk everything to destroy this man.
This episode will be the second without series regular Pauley Perrette, who is departing at the end of the 22nd episode. There still aren’t too many details out there regarding the specifics of her character Abby’s exit, though she did speak more on the personal side of it in a new interview on CBS Sunday Morning. (You can get even more reaction to this in the video below — be sure to subscribe to CarterMatt on YouTube to get more insight on it now.
As for having the finale end this year with a pretty big story for Jack Sloane, we’re fine with that even if she is a new character to NCIS this season. If you have a performer on Bello’s quality on the series the biggest thing that you should want to do is figure out a way to use them to the fullest. Her past is also something that has been dangled a lot this season so it’s not as though we are taking on a personal story completely out of the blue.
