NCIS season 18 episode 9 promo: Why are Gibbs, Fornell at the hospital?

Mark HarmonNCIS season 18 episode 9 is slated to come on CBS next week, and it’s clear that the writers are not done toying with our emotions yet. “Winter Chill” will have a notable case, but it’s also going to assess the aftermath of several stories from this season.

Obviously, this episode is going to spotlight how Gibbs is doing following the departure of Sloane. There’s a sadness that is there — he’s looking at the elephant picture and the suddenness of her decision to stay in Afghanistan. He cared about her in a profoundly deep way, even if he didn’t always show just how deep that was. We of course wonder if an exit like this will make Gibbs think more about his own future, even if there is still a job he has to do.

Then, there is everything with Gibbs and Fornell. The two are seen at the hospital in the promo, which makes us immediately worried for Emily after everything that she went through starting in the season 16 finale. We would have assumed that things were wrapped up after the events of “Head of the Snake,” but clearly, that is not the case yet. We’ll continue to hold out hope that there is a happy ending here, mostly because Fornell has gone through so much sadness already. Also, Gibbs knows what it’s like to lose a daughter; he would never want Joe Spano’s character to ever feel anything close to that level of pain.
