The new year starts off for NCIS with a stolen drone linked to terrorist Parsa, and Team Gibbs sets out to track down the device in the January 7th episode 'Kill Chain'. As an added bonus, actress Susanna Thompson returns as Hollis Mann.
Mann, who viewers will recall had retired to Hawaii, is partnered with former flame Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and team to prevent the wayward surveillance drone from being used in a terror attack.
Also in episode 12 of the 11th season of NCIS, actress Julie Ann Emery makes a guest starring appearance. Fans of the show that frequent Twitter will have seen pictures of Emery duct taped and tied in the back of a van courtesy NCIS actor/director Michael Weatherly. There has been no leak as to the reason for Emery's character being abducted, so we'll just have to wait until Tuesday to find out more!
As a side plot in 'Kill Chain', Tim McGee (Sean Murray) hesitates to ask for time off to attend a black-tie gala honoring his girlfriend Delilah Fielding (Margo Harshman).
