“NCIS” is back for another season of crime-solving and disturbing criminals. Fans finally got to come face to face with the notorious serial killer we’ve been hearing about since last season.
Gibbs and the team are chasing a notorious serial killer that has been evading them. Previously, Gibbs ended up shooting this formidable foe at the end of season 19 episode 2. However, “NCIS” wasn’t ready to give up on the drama of it all quite yet. Lemere couldn’t just die before we’ve truly got to know him.
Paul Lemere, the man killing people left and right, returned for the third episode of the season titled “Road to Nowhere.”
Gibbs and Paul go on a road trip together to find one of his very first victims. The result is a chilling and interesting connection between the good guy and the very bad guy. Also joining them on the road trip is the brand new Special Agent Parker, played by Gary Cole. Seeing as Gibbs missed the kill shot on their serial killer, the two have a bit of a rocky relationship as it is.
At some point, Gibbs and Parker agree they should just call the trip off. Parker gets out of the car to call HQ and Gibbs gets back in the SUV and pulls away with just Paul. The two of them have a less-than-pleasant car ride in which Paul attempts to make Gibbs guilty for all the people he has killed as an agent for 25 years.
All in all, Paul Lemere is chilling, yet incredibly amazing in the role.
