NCIS Did Something it Had Never Done Before In 20 Seasons

In 20 seasons, NCIS has seen pretty much everything, but ‘The Good Fighter’ introduced a plot point that the CBS series had never used before.

Over the course of nearly 450 episodes, NCIS has done just about everything. The cast of the CBS drama has always lived up to expectations, and the stories leave fans wanting more. With one recent exception, the writers of NCIS have kept things fresh and interesting despite the inevitable overlap between old and new storylines after that many hours of TV.

Season 20 saw the series move on from Jethro Gibbs by breaking his rules, setting up a difficult time for Nick Torres, and showing Leon Vance overseas. NCIS has also identified Timothy McGee as a possible replacement for Vance if he leaves. Season 20, Episode 6, “The Good Fighter,” continued the forward-thinking trend by trying something new for NCIS. Kasie Hines was sent undercover inside NCIS’ own building.

NCIS portrayed Kasie as both a v1ctim and a suspect.

Over the course of NCIS’s history, there have been a number of undercover operations. Tony DiNozzo and Ziva David, to name a few, went undercover as married assassins in Season 3. Torres and Ellie Bishop went undercover as a cr1minal couple in Season 12 to bring down a drug ring. Best of all, in Season 12, Gibbs pretended to be an IT technician, leaving the rest of the team on pins and needles as he hilariously pretended to be tech-savvy.

“The Good Fighter” begins with Kasie in a fighting gym, where her trainer tells her she must stop hesitating. She was approached in the parking lot by an unknown man, and viewers assumed she had been kidnapped when she didn’t show up to work the next morning. Kasie had requested a personal day, which was not the case. However, things got even worse when her fingerprints were discovered on the laptop of the episode’s murd3r v1ctim.

Kasie Hines discovered the Mole at NCIS.

Kasie denied any involvement in the murd3r, but insisted on being questioned in the interrogation room, only to turn the tables and begin questioning herself. “The Good Fighter” revealed that she had been recruited by the Defense Cr1minal Investigative Service to conduct an investigation into NCIS. She wanted McGee and Alden Parker to be alone in the room so no one could overhear them. All of the members of the major case response team were cleared after her questions, and they were able to continue with their murd3r investigation. Kasie also assisted by crawling through an air vent into a secure server room at a company.

Kasie had some traumatic experiences shortly before Gibbs left that she struggled to cope with. She was reclaiming control of her life by joining a gym. Seeing her on a solo undercover operation was a huge step forward for her character, especially since she was looking into her friends. She discovered that the mole was her DCIS handler and arrested her before the rest of the NCIS team arrived. Kasie demonstrated that she could be an effective field agent if she so desired, while also providing NCIS with their first experience with someone going undercover against their own team.
