For those of you who have been eager to see Ducky on NCIS season 18, tomorrow night’s episode will provide that very opportunity!
Before we dive into the latest sneak peek as presented by CBS, we should share a reminder as to where David McCallum has been for the bulk of the season. Much like with Linda Hunt over on NCIS: Los Angeles, the #1 priority for the show here is safety. They recognize that McCallum is older and the need for extreme caution in this time of the virus — with that, they’ve limited his on-screen participation as much as possible.

Luckily, we’re happy that the producers have found a way to include the character at all! In the video below, you can get a good sense of what we’re talking about here as Ducky opts to give Gibbs a video call on his newly-gifted tablet with attached keyboard. This is something that Kasie helped to orchestrate — remember, she’s learned that you need to take care of all of the setup in advance with Gibbs! Alas, we know how much Mark Harmon’s character hates technology — he’s willing to put up with the video-call at first but the moment Ducky brings up his recent suspension, he promptly hangs up. It’s hilarious, but we kinda feel for Ducky at the same time.
What do we take away from this preview? It’s mostly a reminder that Ducky IS a part of this world still … and unfortunately, we still have little idea as to when Gibbs is actually going back to work. At this point, we’re just crossing our fingers that it’s at some point this season.
