"NCIS" season 11 is getting into the holiday spirit with this week's episode 11, "Homesick," and on Monday, Dec. 16, CBS released a sneak peek teasing the case and holiday plans.
In "NCIS" episode 11x11, a mysterious illness strikes the children of military families, and Abby (Pauley Perrette) and Jimmy (Brian Dietzen) partner with the Naval Medical Research Center to determine the strain of illness while the team investigates the cause. Elsewhere, Vance (Rocky Carroll) deals with a surprise visit from his estranged father-in-law.
The "Homesick" sneak peek begins all cheery, with Tony (Michael Weatherly) Bishop (Emily Wickersham) discussing Christmas plans – he's going to Jamaica, she's going home for a much more Christmas-y time – and finding Abby waiting in the bullpen with cookies.
However, that changes once McGee (Sean Murray) reports that a friend came home to Afghanistan only to have to rush his five-year-old to the ER. Bishop's friend is going through the same thing, and when Gibbs (Mark Harmon) joins them with Carol (Meredith Eaton), they find out there are eight sick kids with this mystery illness, all from military families living in military housing. Then Abby says the word Tony doesn't want to hear.
"NCIS" season 11 airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on CBS. What do you think of this episode 11 "Homesick" clip?
