If last week's episode was all about Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and his legendary mentor, tonight on NCIS, it's all about Vance (Rocky Carroll). So for those who like him, it's your lucky week. For those who don't like him (and there are a lot, judging from the comments), maybe this can change your mind?
On "Endgame" Vance's family is once again put into danger when an assassin from his past returns to threaten their safety, and the team works on helping Vance face his troubled past. The assassin in question, however, is not just your typical assassin. It's the number one assassin the world, the type who'd dip bullets into lethal poison just to be on the safe side. As if that wasn't bad enough, she's also a knockout. And she's after Vance, his family, or both.
On the last episode of NCIS, we got to meet Gibbs' fabled mentor again, and the episode explored Franks' family life. As it turned out, his dead son doesn't exactly have the best in-laws in the world, and powerful mother actually hired two guys from a private military company to abduct her estranged daughter and granddaughter and bring them back to her.
As luck would have it, Gibbs was involved in the case because the two dead guys were found on his boat, which he dropped off in Mexico to Franks. Later in the episode, it was revealed that it was Leyla herself who shot the hired men, with father-in-law Franks attempting in vain to cover it up.
