Actor William R. Moses guest-starred on NCIS last night — which served as Season 17, Episode 13 for the show. The new episode was called Sound Off and it was one that included a lot of intriguing twists.
The plot for the episode revolved around a body being found on the test site for unmanned aerial vehicles. In the opening moments, a marine sergeant is shown firing a missile on it, just as people in her control room spot someone on the ground.
An investigation is opened into why that person was there, leading to Dr. Palmer discovering that the person was killed first and then placed on the site to cover things up. The episode itself winds through a number of suspects, including Edison Geary, who is played by William R. Moses.
Geary is the CEO of the company trying to sell these weapons, so he becomes a suspect when some of them prove unsafe, but it turns out that this character was innocent. The murderer was George Ingram (David Burke) — the man who had been running the training exercise.
