NCIS season 12, episode 2: Kill the Messenger airs tonight on CBS.
A Navy lieutenant is murdered on his way to a private meeting with the president. The NCIS team tries to determine if the death was part of a recent series of muggings in the area or if it was a targeted hit to keep intelligence secrets.
NCIS is based on the cases of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. From murder and espionage to terrorism and stolen submarines, special agents traverse the globe to investigate all crimes with Navy or Marine Corps ties. With liberal doses of humor, the show focuses on the sometimes complex and always amusing dynamics of a team forced to work together in high-stress situations.
The agents include special agent Anthony DiNozzo, an ex-homicide detective; special agent Ziva David, probably the most dangerous team member; and special agent Timothy McGee, an MIT graduate with a genius talent in the computer field. Forensic specialist Abby Sciuto also assists the team along with medical examiner Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard. Head of operations is NCIS director Leon Vance, who is an intelligent and highly trained agent.
NCIS season 12, episode 2 airs Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. EDT on CBS. Spoiler video below:
