There will be high-strung drama on the tenth episode of NCIS Season 13. The Thanksgiving episode will also be featuring a few guest stars, including Lindsay Wagner, Ryan Doom and Joe Spano, The Christian Post reports.
On the episode, NCIS Special Agent Ellie Bishop, played by Emily Wickersham, will be going home to Oklahoma for the holidays. This is an opportunity for the agent to have a much-needed reunion with her mother, played by Lindsay Wagner, who unfortunately rubs her the wrong way.
It seems that Bishop will not be getting some much-needed respite from the stress of her work, but instead, will be butting heads with the matriarch. The episode's teaser shows the special agent tensely gripping her phone at the dinner table, and yells when she sees that it's her husband calling: "This is my life. My marriage. So back off."
The CBS drama will also focus on another family drama involving a marine who is struck down with leukemia. The Secretary of the Navy will ask the NCIS team to find a bone marrow donor for the suffering patient. What does he have invested in the matter? Apparently the family has already lost two previous family members, and the secretary hopes to spare them more pain through a third loss.
Meanwhile, CBS gives the lowdown in the previous episode, where the focal point is on the LAPD Detective Deeks, who was arrested for a crime he's being accused of. The twist is he is more guilty of it than what most people think. Eric Christian Olsen explains to Entertainment Online that Deeks is in a dark place obviously and that this will try his relationship with Kensi (Daniela Ruah).
Unfortunately for Deeks, he is not quite ready to lose his most successful relationship so far. He feels that he is not at all ready to come clean and reveal some frightening things in his past to Kensi and risk losing the love of his life just yet.
The good news is that Kensi will not be quick to judge Deeks for his arrest.
"I don't think Kensi would think Deeks had done anything that warranted him being arrested. But then why is he being arrested? A lot of times emotions get in the way of your logic and I think that might be what happens here," Ruah says in the interview.
The expose on what Deeks is accused of will be set for December 7.
