Watch NCIS Season 20 Episode 5 Sneak Peek

Vance, Knight, Torres, McGee, and Parker investigate the crime scene in the first sneak peek below. This is dangerous for everyone, but more so for the NCIS director. Parker may refuse to leave Vance until the matter is resolved. Leon still has job, which is why there are images of Gary Cole and Carroll’s characters at an Interpol conference.

The second sneak peek adds another intriguing twist. Timothy McGee will be promoted unexpectedly! Palmer gently encourages him to enjoy his newfound power as NCIS’s acting director while Vance and Parker are abroad. Because McGee wants none of this, it’s amusing. Parker is commanding the team because he didn’t want Gibbs’ former job.

NCIS Season 20 Episode 5 Synopsis: Agent Parker steps up to protect director Vance after a terrifying home invasion; the team detects advancements in Jessica and Jimmy’s blossoming romance.

 ‘NCIS’ Season 20 Episode 4 Recap

The crew comes across Park Services Investigator Gage Winchester while investigating the murder of a Petty Officer discovered in a national park. Because of his attractiveness, the boys can’t help but make fun of Jimmy for running into her ex. Jimmy, though, seems to have a lot of faith in his connection to Jessica now that Gage has moved on. If only Gage, who is still obviously intrigued by Knight, could hear it. But as we can see, Jessica was unable to control his instinctive desire to act alone and not as a team. This was a significant factor in their breakup. Gage is a capable investigator, but his communication abilities need improvement. To signal to Jimmy that he meant to get Knight back, he made an attempt at some macho posturing. It was not favourably received.

First of all, we are already aware that Jessica would not approve of this behaviour. It is implied that even Ernie from NCIS: Hawaii has a nice but overzealous crush on the agent. Jimmy, however, deftly ignores Gage’s attempt to treat Jessica like a prize to be won in favour of concentrating on the investigation. Regardless of what they choose to call it, Jessica’s perspective makes it quite clear that Gage is simply a part of her past and that her relationship with Jimmy is what matters most to her. Even though Gage didn’t get any credit for his treatment of Jimmy, his impatience ultimately assisted in cracking the case. They found the unlucky animal had taken cocaine after being assaulted by a bear that was acting strangely. They come to understand that their murderer had participated in a narcotics ring that was dispersing drugs into national parks. The crew was able to identify who was utilising planes to deliver the drugs after the drug traffickers killed their suspect to keep them silent.
