An easy one: Who plays "Gibbs" on 'NCIS'?

The episode press release is out, and the cast list includes "Breena" (Michelle Pierce), the late wife of "Palmer." She passed away off-screen after battling COVID-19 last season. 

So it looks like we could see flashbacks with "Breena" in the episode. We don't know if those will be happy memories or her last days. Either way: Get your tissues ready.

Otherwise, the plot has "Palmer" and "Kasie" (Diona Reasonover) dealing with a biotoxin, which leads them to call "Dr. Carol Wilson" (Meredith Eaton).

Meanwhile, "Torres" (Wilmer Valderrama) watches over "Palmer's" daughter "Victoria." Star Brian Dietzen co-wrote the episode, and fans are eager to give it a watch.

Tune in on Feb. 28!
