NCIS season 18 episode 11 photo: McGee, Bishop, & Torres’ new task

NCISWe’re going to be waiting until April to see NCIS season 18 episode 11 on the air, but we at least have more of a sense of what’s next.

The photo above is one of the first images that we’ve got for the installment “Gut Punch,” which has understandably gotten a lot of publicity courtesy of Pam Dawber’s guest-starring spot. Yet, there’s so other big stuff coming beyond her character and Gibbs! For McGee, Bishop, and Torres, they are going to have to face the consequences of their own past actions.

Even though Gibbs was not formally charged with anything (he was instead suspended indefinitely), the other agents still are getting punished for their decision to lie for him. In this episode, Vance is going to send Sean Murray, Emily Wickersham, and Wilmer Valderrama’s characters to virus compliance duty — it takes them out of the field seemingly for the time being. He clearly recognizes that their skills are valuable, but also has to teach some sort of lesson.

So what happens when their work ends up colliding with another NCIS team’s murder case? That’s what we’re going to see play out here, and for Leon, we imagine that this is going to be a struggle. He wants to still punish McGee, Bishop, and Torres, but he also needs to ensure that justice is served. If they can help close a case, we have to think he’ll eventually let them … while also still finding another way to punish them. (In some other Vance-related news, this upcoming episode is directed by Rocky Carroll himself!)
