The much-awaited NCIS Season 20 Episode 18, titled “Head Games,” is scheduled to premiere on Monday, April 10th at 9 pm (ET) for viewers in the United States. The episode will run for approximately 51 minutes, consistent with the rest of the series. However, the release date for international viewers, including those in the UK, has not been announced yet. Don’t forget, subtitles will be available for those catching up later.
A Mysterious Crime Unfolds
In this new episode, the NCIS team is confronted with a baffling case involving a Navy lieutenant who is accused of attempting to murder her husband. The peculiar twist? She has no memory of committing the crime. As the episode unfolds, it becomes increasingly evident that she may be genuine in her claims. This leaves viewers and the team questioning the reasons behind her amnesia: could it be post-traumatic stress, a psychiatric disorder, or is someone trying to frame her?
The NCIS Team Delves Deeper
As the NCIS team investigates the case, they use their collective expertise to try and uncover the truth. The sneak peeks available online offer glimpses into Parker, McGee, and the rest of the team’s efforts to understand the situation fully. The team conducts an extended interview with the suspect and exhausts every avenue to piece together the puzzle. However, they soon discover that this case is far more complicated than it seems, and finding the answers won’t be easy.
Kasie Hines Faces Personal Challenges
Though not explicitly mentioned in the sneak peeks, viewers should be prepared for a subplot involving Kasie Hines, who receives potentially troubling medical news. Fans can only hope that she will be okay, considering the challenges she has already faced.
Recap: Season 20 Episode 17 “Stranger in a Strange Land”
In the previous episode, Jimmy struggles with his daughter Victoria’s transition into adolescence as she excitedly plans her first group date. Meanwhile, the NCIS team investigates the murder of Marine Private William Huxley, who had been stabbed in the neck with a kitchen knife.
Bill Huxley was known for his dedication to helping Afghan refugees, using his baking skills to raise money for a refugee center. The investigation leads to a series of suspects, including Karen Graham, a rival baker, and Mateen Jamaah, an Afghan refugee who blames Bill for not saving his parents from the Taliban.
In the end, it is revealed that the woman running the refugee center was a white nationalist who manipulated the situation to cover her tracks. Mateen is placed on probation, and his fiancée, Asal, is allowed to come to the United States.
