The NCIS and NCIS: Hawaii Season 20 and Season 2 premieres respectively will consist of two parts in chronological order. The story begins in NCIS, where the team is trying to get to the bottom of where Agent Alden Parker (Gary Cole) has gone and who could ruin his name and career. Sean Murray (Timothy McGee) and his agents turn to Aloha State Special Agent Jane Tennant (Vanessa Laci) and Technician Ernie Malick (Jason Antoon) to help them search both areas. Speaking with TVLineSteven D. Binder went into detail about what to expect from the cast’s expected dub.
Many expect a dynamic to keep an eye on when McGee meets Ernie, but the showrunner downplayed that prediction, responding, “I think it’s only thanks to Tim [McGee] being in his 20s, he will inherently not be as in awe of Ernie as one might expect. Ernie may take it differently now, but Ernie is new on the block, so to speak.” Asked which meeting to pay close attention to instead, he said, “The one to watch more is Jimmy (Brian Dietzen) and Ernie [because] they are both infatuated with Agent Knight (Katrina Lowe).” It makes sense and should be a real treat for the fans.
