Ok, so now that our spoiler warning has been given to all of you, let’s go over this new episode 20 press release that CBS was kind enough to put out.
For starters, it lets us know that episode 20 is officially labeled/titled, “The Arizona.” It sounds like episode 20 will feature some very interesting scenes.
In the new episode 20, The NCIS crew will be approached by a very strange man named Joe Smith. He will be claiming that he actually served on the U.S.S. Arizona when Pearl Harbor was attacked. Along with this claim, Joe will make a request that he be buried there when he dies.
In light of this very unique situation, the NCIS team will attempt to verify the claims and identity of Joe Smith to make sure he’s not just making up crazy lies and stories.
CBS’ official description for episode 20 reads like this, “The team tries to verify the identity of Joe Smith (Christopher Lloyd), who claims he served on the U.S.S. Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor, and wants to be buried there upon his death.”
An alternate description reads like this, “THE TEAM TRIES TO VERIFY THE IDENTITY OF A MAN WHO CLAIMS HE WAS ON THE U.S.S. ARIZONA DURING THE ATTACK ON PEARL HARBOR, AND WANTS TO BE BURIED THERE WHEN HE PASSES.”

They are: Christopher Lloyd as character (Joseph “Joe” Smith), Oeter Nyrbuj as character (Navy Four-Star Admiral Michael Caplinger), Jessica Tuck as character (Gloria Caplinger), Sebastian Sozzi as character (Kevin Deacon), Dawn Matthews as character (Doctor Alice Jelani), Sofie Calderon as character (Joan), Damian Joseph Quinn as character (Young Joe) and Zachary Cowan as character (Charred Sailor).
