DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
NCIS, Channel 10, 8.30pm
GIBBS hasn’t been arrested yet, but it’s coming. The judge has allowed him and AJ, the lawyer Vance arranged for him, 48 hours to get their ducks in a row, to use a naval term. Is it possible Gibbs has been involved in ‘‘ inappropriate’’— or worse— actions for 20 years? It’s not helping that he’s taken to dressing like Billy Bob Thornton’s simpleton character from Sling Blade. The rest of his team, loyal to a fault, are trying to dig up dirt on Parsons, the Department of Defence investigator, played by Colin Hanks. This is the season finale, so you can expect a cliffhanger involving a sniper rifle.
