NCIS Season 19 Preview
NCIS Season 19’s finale saw Parker having a blast from his past while Jimmy and Jessica struggled with the future.
The finale opened with a birdwatcher/photographer laying witness to a woman (played by The Fosters’ Teri Polo) being abducted along her jogging route by a masked man -except, based on texts he then received/sent, the photog was expecting this.
Kasie, anonymously sending the photos to NCIS with the images, can identify Vivian Kolchak. This is just as Parker enters to find his ex-wife’s face on the monitor. The team begins to track down Parker’s ex-partner, Frank Ressler. However, Ressler’s body was found in his garage, just as the team is about to close in on him. Parker said that he went looking for his ex-partner that night, but no one was there. This claim starts to seem shaky after Ressler finds Parker’s DNA under Resslers nails.
Vance had already benched Parker so Parker is brought to NCIS to be questioned. Although Vance and McGee don’t believe he inflicted Ressler, Parker is still being questioned as a murder suspect. Vance agrees that he will “forget” the DOJ number for 48 hours while the team investigates the truth. Jessica and Nick interview Vivian about how she managed to escape her captors. They also flag down a passing motorist. The team’s vaguely remembered clues led them to an abandoned pet shop, where Jesss and Nick found confirmation that Vivian was held there. Also, they discovered a scrawled letter indicating that Vivian was being held — as well as a “NEVERMORE” card from the “Raven,” the villain who taunted NCIS earlier this season.
Sweeney the FBI Deputy Director storms NCIS along with two agents to try and bring Parker into custody. But Vance insists that he doesn’t know where Alden is. While Parker sneaks off with Vivian, Jess and Nick look after him while Tim, Nick, Tim, and Tim take care of Parker. As Vivian waits for their old mix tape, we watch her text an unknown person, “It’s done.” He’s mine.”
Jess learns that Jimmy has given new disclosure forms to his office. This led to Jess realizing that Jimmy had misrepresented their relationship as “workplace relationship.” But Jess counters that in spite of the year they’ve had, it is not impossible to see the “good.” They have something good… do we not? Jimmy approaches Jess and asks if they would be willing to reveal their relationship. After a short kiss, he asks Jess for another.

What is the plot for NCIS Season 20’s episode?
Season 20 will begin at full speed. Season 19 ended with a dark cliffhanger. This is the norm for NCIS. Agent Parker was charged with the murder. Agent Parker fled to hide with his teammates, promising to clear himself. Parker wasn’t the only one looking for him. Parker’s ex-wife, who was clearly involved in nefarious activities, had reentered into the picture and fled with him. In the final seconds of the finale, she replied to a text that said, “It’s done.” He’s mine.” The synopsis for the first episode (via Cinemablend) lets fans know she is in league the infamous Raven, who will be the main villain of the season.
While Parker’s innocence will be the focus of Season 20’s first episodes, the remainder of the season promises to focus more on the characters’ personal lives. This includes the growing relationship between Jimmy Palmer and Agent Knight. NCIS Showrunner Steven D. Binder revealed that we will be hearing more about their personal lives in an interview to Parade.com. My belief is that the cases are the heart and soul of the show. NCIS is its name. It’s about NCIS. However, anyone who has seen the show knows it’s about the people. NCIS fans can also look forward to more crossovers with NCIS Hawai’i. The season opener will feature Tennant’s Hawai’i crew helping to catch the Raven. Hawai’i’s first episode will continue the storyline as the DC crew travels Oahu.
