The Next ‘NCIS’ Episode Features a Major Crime Going Down

by Madison Miller

“NCIS” is taking a brief hiatus during the holidays, which means you’ll be waiting a bit for a brand new episode to show up on your screen.

The new episode titled “Peacekeeper” will air on Monday, November 29 after Thanksgiving weekend. Luckily, it’s not too long of a wait. However, what is it fans are going to be waiting for, in the first place?

Intense ‘NCIS’ Episode to Air After Hiatus

A good mystery as per usual and a pretty intense crime. This new episode will send the crew to a newly dead body and crime scene. According to Carter Matt, this time they find the body of a Navy reservist in a beat-up car located in a gun range.

It’s a bit of a strange location for the team to find a body, so they must backtrack and figure out what exactly is going on at this crime scene. Based on the title of the episode, guns are going to be the main focus of this episode. This could mean learning about a connection between firearms and the dead person. It could also be a way for “NCIS” to send an important message to viewers regarding gun-safety regulations.

This new episode will feature a very personal storyline from Forensic Scientist Kasie Hines (played by Diona Reasonover). She’s going to debate whether or not she wants to purchase a personal gun for safety reasons. The fact that she suddenly wants to buy a gun likely has something to do with the events of this upcoming “NCIS” episode.

Gun ownership is a difficult decision. Her character also had a near-death moment earlier this season, which could also be a factor in wanting the gun.

All in all, it seems like a pretty captivating episode set for November 29.

Show Pays Tribute to Harriet Margulies

During the episode on November 8, you may have noticed a tribute for someone named Harriet Margulies pop up on your screen.

She was a longtime member of the “NCIS” staff and she sadly passed away on October 30 from a stroke. She was 94 years old.

According to Distractify, Margulies was a publicist before eventually landing more and more roles in the TV world. She first got started by writing an episode of “Kojak” in the 1970s. From there, she worked as a production assistant on “Magnum P.I.” and eventually also on “Airwolf,” “Quantum Leap,” “Tequila,” and “JAG.”

If you were an avid “JAG” fan you may remember the character Harriet Sims, who was named after Margulies. She also occasionally had acting jobs. This includes a role as Elizabeth Taylor on “Scene of the Crime” and brief appearances on “JAG” and “NCIS.”

Most recently, from 2004 to 2010, she was assistant to the producer on “NCIS.” Her last role would be as an audience liaison.
