Tonight's NCIS - what is going on?
October 15, 2019 7:02 PM   Subscribe

Tonight Mrs. L & I were watching NCIS on NBC (we both like watching it every Tuesday). However we have questions (maybe some spoilers): 1. Why are "the team" wearing red overalls? 2. Most of the action takes place in a makeshift encampment in a "Terminal" (sign on wall in background). This Looks like a bus terminal or maybe a hospital outpatient waiting area. What is going on and is this today in 2019 or some future sci fi dystopia? Dear NCIS viewers, please explain this to us.

Best answer: The red overalls were the uniform used in the evidence area. They were being punished by Vance for lying about Ziva in the last episode. They were to help evidence for a few days.

The terminal is a former bus terminal that changed into a homeless camp.

I'm guessing you started 10-15 minutes in.

Best answer: The team was being punished for lying to the director about Gibbs, and had to work on sorting through evidence.
The terminal was a terminal before it became a homeless encampment. And no, not a dystopian future.

Meldanthral and kate4914 have it.

Source: My name's Diona, I play the forensic scientist Kasie Hines on NCIS. Thanks for watching the show.

Also this is a throwaway account.

Response by poster: Fab answers and much appreciated by us. NCIS is a very fast paced show where (almost) anything goes, and sometimes it is difficult to keep up!
And also many thanks to ThisIsAOneTimeThing for chiming in.

Hi, Diona! Love your character.

NCIS is on CBS, not NBC.
