NCIS season 17 episode 9 sneak peek: Gibbs looks after Phineas!

Mark HarmonFor those of you hoping for something a little bit different out of NCIS season 17 episode 9, we’ve got that for you below!

If you look towards the bottom of this article, you can see a sneak peek highlighting none other than Leroy Jethro Gibbs being thrown into a rather surprising position for him — babysitter. Phineas’ mom was forced to head out of town at the last minute, which means she didn’t have many people to look after him. Even she admits that she’s questioning leaving him with a neighbor across the street she only recently met, but there’s something about Gibbs that just feels trustworthy. Maybe it’s the NCIS badge — or the fact that he wasn’t too mad over Phineas busting his window.

No matter the reason, there could be some humorous stuff for Gibbs and Phineas in this episode — take, for example, Gibbs confiscating all of Phineas’ screens at his mother’s request — or, telling him to “grab your gear” before Phineas grabs his backpack and prepares to head off to school. It’s a different side to Gibbs, and maybe having the kid around will allow him to be more open and explore a side of him that he really hasn’t in quite a while.

Of course, in the midst of being a babysitter, there’s also a job to do. This is what the second sneak peek for this episode is all about, as in here Gibbs and the rest of the NCIS team are doing everything that they can to solve an unusual murder themed around a gamer well-versed in the streaming world. Whoever killed them knew what they were doing, and McGee seems ready for the team to lean heavily on his skill set. After all, nobody knows the world of gaming quite like he does! That should be an asset for whatever unusual stuff this team is going to be taking on.
