Hey, NCIS fans. It’s another one of those times again where we have to tell you that your favorite show will be missing in action. This time, CBS is delaying the airing of the next, new episode 17. Instead of it airing on Tuesday night March 19, 2019, it will air on Tuesday night,March 26, 2019. So, be sure to mark down that very important date down on your TV show calendars.
What will CBS be airing instead of the new, 17th episode of NCIS season 16 this Tuesday night? According to the TV Guide listings, they will still be airing NCIS. However, it will just be a rerun. The rerun will be the episode that’s titled, “Beneath The Surface.” It originally aired way back on October 30, 2018.
The official description for that repeat episode reads like this, “After NCIS arrives at a Halloween crime scene, Torres recognizes the victim as a former friend from federal law enforcement training. Also, Jimmy thinks his lab is haunted by ghosts when objects keep mysteriously moving.”
If any of you guys missed that episode, this Tuesday night will be your chance to fill in that gap. For those of you who already saw that particular episode and wish not to see it again, you will definitely want to make sure you find something else to do or watch that night. Not only will NCIS be a rerun, but that whole NCIS primetime schedule will air reruns for all the shows that run that night.
Now that we’ve gotten that horrible news out of the way, it’s time for some good news. CBS has released their official press release for episode 17. So, we can give you guys some intel about what to expect in it. This part of the article will contain light spoiler teasers. If you don’t want to see any spoiler teasers, it’s highly advised that you exit this article right now.
For those of you who don’t mind spoiler teasers, by all means please continue reading this article. Alright, now that we’ve gotten our little spoiler warning out of the way, let’s get into this.
First of all, episode 17 is entitled, “Silent Service.” Episode 17 definitely sounds like it could feature some pretty intense and highly dramatic moments as Bishop and Gibbs could find themselves in some major trouble!
It turns out that Gibbs and Bishop will end up on a submarine that’s freaking nuclear, and it’s gone radio silent! CBS’ official description tells us, “Director Vance is notified by the Pentagon that the nuclear submarine Gibbs and Bishop are aboard to conduct a murder investigation has gone radio silent.”
That is the main and only description CBS gave for this episode. So, they definitely kept things nice and short.
CBS also released a couple of preview photos for episode 17. Gibbs and Bishop are seen in a couple of the photos, appearing to have a great time with two other guys. However, they look quite serious in another scene.
Vance, Ducky and agent Sloane are spotted in a few of the pics. So, expect them to have a scene together. Agents Torres and McGee are spotted in one of the photos. It looks like they’re involved in a very intense scene. You guys can view all of the preview photos for episode 17 over on Spoiler TV’s site by Clicking Here.
