Initially, the plan for CBS was to air the next new episode of the long-running crime procedural (entitled “She”) on Tuesday, February 5. However, that is changing now in part due to the massive change that took place with the State of the Union Address. Per the network’s official schedule, they are now planning to air a repeat of The World’s Best in the NCIS timeslot, starting with the two-hour State of the Union event next week. CBS does not want to have to separate NCIS from the other shows on their schedule unless they absolutely have to and they are making this move with that in mind. (They already ended up briefly separating NCIS from some of the other shows on the schedule because of a different Presidential Address.)

So will “She” be the episode that now airs on February 12? This is the assumption that we would make, but for the time being, we cannot confirm anything. While it seems clear that NCIS is not going to air next week as originally planned, we’re still in a relatively fluid situation when it comes to the show’s schedule. Because of real-life events playing out in the way in which they have (more chaotic than usual, suffice it to say), that’s led to a much more fluid situation than we are used to when it comes to major network shows.

When NCIS season 16 episode 13 does air, what we’re going to see is a situation in which Bishop is able to look into some clues from the past to dive into a case of Ziva David’s, one that was of great significance to her. While the specifics for this particular episode remain unclear, we do still find it curious that NCIS is banking as much story-wise as they are on an episode featuring a character who hasn’t been a part of the show for a while. (We do still miss Ziva, and we have a hard time thinking that this character is ever officially gone from the show.)
