NCIS Season 19, Episode 16 airs on Monday night and it is the final new installment before the big crossover event.
On the most recent episode of NCIS, veteran actor Kevin Chapman guest starred as Billy Doyle. It tied back to the past of Alden Parker, giving NCIS fans more backstory for the new leader of the team.
It would be interesting to see the character of Billy Doyle appear again on the show, especially because it could give Parker someone close in his personal life that he could relate to outside of work.
But the show must go on, and on Monday night, a brand-new episode of the show is ready to debut. It’s hard not to view this as a stand-alone episode, though, because fans are really looking forward to the crossover episode at the end of March.
NCIS synopsis for The Wake
The Wake is the name of the new NCIS episode that will air for the first time on Monday, March 21. This is another episode that was directed by Rocky Carroll, who plays NCIS Director Leon Vance on the NCIS cast.
“A gruesome mishap at a Navy petty officer’s gender-reveal party leads NCIS to the case of a missing teacher that was popularized on a true crime podcast,” reads the full synopsis for the new episode on March 21.
