“NCIS” Season 12 Episode 1 “Twenty Klicks” aired on Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2014, at 8:00 p.m. on CBS. Gibbs was assigned to accompany a systems administrator to Russia. Read on to learn more about this episode.
Previously on “NCIS” (Episode 1 “Twenty Klicks”), Gibbs (Mark Harmon) has a Russian stalker — Sergei Michnev, an international mercenary. But that part has to wait. Kevin Hussein (Ethan Rains), a systems administrator, suspected that he was being followed. He was arranging his uncle’s funeral in Moscow. He then enlisted the help of the U.S. embassy to have someone accompany him back home, and the best person to go with him was Gibbs. McGee (Sean Murray) accompanied Gibbs.
While on board the Navy helicopter, a missile suddenly hit them, which they managed to sustain. Banks, the pilot, was badly injured, but Gibbs would not leave her there to die. They were 20 klicks away from Finland. McGee tried to restart the radio to catch up some signal. Gibbs, on the other hand, demanded Kevin to reveal who was following him. Before Kevin could spill his beans, they heard vehicles approaching.
Sergei and his men approached the pilot. Banks died, and Gibbs took out her dog tags to give to her mother.
Kevin revealed to Gibbs that he used to have a deal with Sergei and decided to back out from it. Then he found his uncle dead. He inserted the micro disk in his uncle’s body. He did that because he thinks that nobody will get his uncle’s body anyway.
Abby (Pauley Perrette) managed to access the mystery file. She panicked when the virus started to spread, even jamming phones. Fortunately, McGee was able to contact Tony (Michael Weatherly) and warned him about the disk. Meanwhile, Bishop (Emily Wickersham) got their coordinates, and Tony immediately hopped in the plane to rescue them.
Kevin was shot, while Gibbs tried to stop their pursuers. He instructed Kevin and McGee to keep going. In the darkness, Tony arrived and got them. Gibbs managed to take one last shot and hit Sergei.
Vance (Rocky Carroll) informed Gibbs that Sergei survived. It was revealed that he was trying to avenge Ari Haswari’s death.
