NCIS season 15 episode 8 spoilers: ‘Voices’ & a McGee – Delilah story

Just in case you were wondering when the McGee – Delilah relationship would be explored again on NCIS, we come bearing news! The show’s upcoming 8th episode of season 15, entitled “Voices,” will feature a story that has McGee and Delilah butting heads. While their baby may not be born yet this installment is going to feature the two contributing to what is in many ways a relationship rite of passage for many couples about to become parents. After all, they are going to debate over whether or not to learn the truth about the sex of their child!
If you look below, you can get a little more insight into what’s coming here courtesy of CBS:

“Voices” – An NCIS person of interest in a bribery and fraud case is found murdered after a runner is led to his body by a strange voice. Also, McGee and Delilah disagree on whether to find out the baby’s sex or keep it a surprise, on NCIS, Tuesday, Nov. 14 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Here’s how things are breaking down when it comes to this McGee – Delilah debate. McGee wants to know if he is having a boy or a girl, whereas Delilah does not. Given that this is not a secret you can keep quiet we have to side with Delilah here. If she doesn’t want to know and Tim can’t convince her to change her mind, he’s just going to have to tough it out! He has already spent months not knowing what he’s having, so he can wait a little while longer until Delilah delivers to learn what they are having. (We have a hard time thinking that it’s going to be too much longer after this episode airs given the timeline.)

As for the case of the week…
The episode title is clearly a reference to whoever decided to use a voice in order for someone to find the dead body. It’s not the easiest cast to imagine when you think about it in your head, but this could be interesting depending on how it plays out — if nothing else, we can picture this being extremely creepy and something a little more outside the box than most of the other cases we’ve had a chance to experience when it comes to the show. (It’s almost a shame that the episode with strange voices isn’t the one coming out this Halloween!)

NCIS Season 15 Episode 8 Review: Voices

In a rather unusual turn of events, much of the emotional heft and drama of NCIS Season 15 Episode 8 actually rested not on a main cast member, but guest star Laura Regan.

Regan portrayed Amber Davis, a woman who initially seemed to be an unfortunate hiker who just happened to find a dead body...until she claimed to be hearing the voice of the dead man.

Amber's inclusion in the case as a psychic witness felt extremely forced and awkward, especially coming in the way it did from Director Vance himself.

That said, Regan's multilayered portrayal of Amber of the initially confused but helpful witness before the reveal as a horrifyingly troubled, fiendishly intelligent, yet still sympathetic murderer definitely highlighted the episode.

Logically speaking, it didn't take long to figure that Amber must have been involved in the murder if one discounted the possibility that she was psychically endowed or otherwise haunted.
It says a lot that Amber's ex-husband remained so devoted towards her, even at the end when he was aware of everything she had done.

One thing I would definitely like to call attention to is the ambiguity surrounding her third and final target, Jimmy Lancaster, AKA "Box Guy." Not whether he was guilty of being a scumbag, but in her actions to catch him.

She used her technological skills (okay, magical hacking abilities) to take control of the psych ambulance and crash it, putting two (completely innocent) people in mortal jeopardy. Then she broke into Lancaster's house and held him at gunpoint until he confessed.

Contrary to claims at the end of the episode, not the makings of a rock-solid case against Mr. Lancaster.

Whether or not Amber's actions and sympathetic portrayal actually glorify vigilantism is a matter of opinion. Frankly, I think it would've been a more interesting end had her actions resulted in Lancaster escaping justice.

Certainly not a happier ending (as happy as it could be in this case), but perhaps more justifiable.

Running just below the Case of the Week came the recurring discussion of whether or not ghosts and the supernatural were real.
Given McGee's glee in the realization that Amber's "ghosts" were in fact suppressed memories of her own murderous deeds, I figured we were in for a bit of a twist somewhere.
To quote Shakespeare's Hamlet, "There are more things in heaven and Earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
I have to say, it was a nice treat to have the very brief cameo by Muse Watson. Somehow, it seems just like the ghost of Mike Franks to make gags about ghosts and insanity.

The spirits of the dead have a long and storied role on NCIS, such as after Kate Todd's death on NCIS Season 3 Episode 1, "Kill Ari;" or when the spirit of Mike Franks guided Gibbs on the 200th episode of the series (NCIS Season 9 Episode 14).

Gibbs also saw the ghosts of Mike Franks, Jenny Sheppard, Ned Dorneget, Chris Pacci, Kate Todd, and Paula Cassidy on NCIS Season 12 Episode 23, "The Lost Boys."
Naturally, whether they were actually there or not remains up to the viewer's imagination, but it's worth noting that the vast majority of ghostly encounters have seemed to involve Gibbs.
He has received a lot of head trauma (and other sorts of trauma) over the years...

The last storyline of the hour centered around McGee's desire to discover whether his baby was going to be a boy or a girl. As it turned out, Delilah didn't want him to know, and this meant he couldn't know, either.

This discussion came across a bit oddly particularly after Bishop pointed out that there are only a few weeks left in her pregnancy, so it wouldn't make much of a difference, anyway.
Had this come up, say, several weeks ago, it would've felt less awkward, especially intercut as it was with the very emotionally heavy Case of the Week.

Of course, the whole thing turned out to be a sly set-up to reveal that he's having a boy and a girl! It's twins for Tim and Delilah! A little big soap opera, but still worth the look on McGee's face.

A few final notes and miscellaneous thoughts before I turn the discussion over to you:
I'm not sure why Gibbs invited Amber to his house after hours to question her. That's odd on several levels. Seriously, a criminal investigator inviting a witness/potential suspect to his house?
No one ever mentioned that Gibbs had lost his daughter, as well -- perhaps because they didn't want to bring up the fact that he totally killed the guy who did it, too. Awkward...
That ultrasound McGee showed at the end was definitely not of 8- to 9-month twins. Let's just say that the womb gets crowded really fast by that point in gestation.
On a related note, Tony DiNozzo will have a field day when he learns that McGee is having twins.
I confess that I laughed out loud when Muse Watson appeared on my screen. Mike Franks is almost always a win in my book.

'NCIS' Recap: What is the Sex of McGee and Delilah's Baby?

Last time on NCIS,Gibbs faced a dilemma that crushed him between loyalty and the truth. Gibbs chose the truth, even though it has obvious consequences for Agent Fornell.

In this episode of NCIS, titled "Voices," the team tackles a spooky case as McGee and Delilah try to decide whether or not to find out their baby's gender. I, personally, am hoping for a little girl.

Voices Carry

The episode kicks off with a runner, Amber, listening to her earbuds while running around a lake in a park. She is lost but hears a disembodied voice saying, "Help me." It is creepy, spooky and just plain bizarre. She follows the voice to an abandoned shed, where she finds a deceased person. Yikes!

Bishop and Torres overhear a rattled McGee ordering some expensive flowers with pricey same-day delivery for Delilah because they have had an argument. McGee wants to find out the sex of their baby, but Delilah wants to be surprised. The ultrasound was inconclusive, but an upcoming blood test will can reveal the baby's sex. Torres urges McGee to do whatever Delilah wants since she, after all, is the one incubating a tiny human. I don't know; I think that McGee's reasons for needing to know are thin.

Gibbs arrives, and the team has a case. Even though Ducky is off for the holidays, Gibbs wants him working the case. Poor McGee must ditch his florist emergency call to catch up with the team.

The victim, Victor King, isn't a member of the military, but he does have a connection to it. He is a missing person of interest in a fraud and bribery case that was being handled by the Northeast NCIS Field Office. The park ranger is not familiar with the victim.

The runner tells McGee that a voice, or ghost, led her to the body. McGee decides that this explanation is best coming directly from the runner, so she relates the same story to the team. Torres is worried about why the dead man's ghost is chatting with the runner. McGee posits that perhaps there is a hidden speaker in the shed but confirms that there isn't one. Ducky says auditory hallucinations can be a hallmark of a mental health issue. As the team chats among themselves, the runner asks if they can hear the voice. The voices states that "he is cold."

Stop Messing with Dead People

The victim, Victor King, is a 55-year-old who owned a huge steel company that was a Navy supplier. The avid outdoorsman and hiker was being investigated by the Department of Defense over the last two years for selling defective materials, bribery and fraud. King's lawyers were successful in keeping any charges at bay until King's disappearing act in February.

Now the team digs into Amber Davis, the runner who hears dead people. She is a software engineer who has recently relocated to Virginia. Ducky believes that King died in February, but Amber was in Uganda working on a computer network for a charity.

Torres would like to take this opportunity to poll the team as to why the ghost is speaking out now about being cold. Gibbs is exasperated and refuses to entertain the issue. McGee denies hearing anything and does not believe that ghosts exist. Although Bishop does believe in ghosts, she is not ready to embrace the idea of people communicating with them.

Jack arrives in time to agree with Torres that it might be a good idea to talk to Amber again, just in case the dearly departed Victor King would like to shed some light on his demise. Gibbs tells Jack to go for it.

A Spooky Interview

Jack has a chat with Amber in her office. Jack asks Amber if she has ever had the experience of calling a friend on the phone, only to be told that the other person was also thinking of her? Jack points out that this can happen because a song on the radio prompted two people to think of each other. The brain can make incredible connections that a person may not even be aware of. Jack believes that Amber's subconscious somehow deciphered clues that led her to the location of King's body. Perhaps Amber even met the killer.

Amber is willing to follow this theory, and Jack begins to gather some data. Amber is divorced, and she had a daughter. The child died in her sleep from a heart condition. Amber notices the lights above Jack's desk start to flicker, and Amber says that she sees Victor King fighting with someone in a car. Amber appears to be in a trance-like state and adds that the car is in West Bay. She adds ominously, "He had an accident."

In autopsy, Ducky reveals that King's physical remains have also been telling a story. King died from hypothermia, and Ducky believes that King got lost while hiking and froze to death. Gibbs refutes this notion, pointing out that King was an experienced hiker. Palmer would like to see if Amber has heard any new information, but Gibbs is fed-up with this topic. Vance arrives with word that the Department of Defense wants this solved pronto, even if this means working with Amber. He points out that NCIS has worked with psychic before, and Vance has also. Gibbs is not a happy camper.

A nervous Torres is worried that NCIS once again is "messing with the dead" and that no good will come of it. Bishop gets an e-mail from Jack with the make and color of a car and the location of West Bay. After some sleuthing, the duo discovers that West Bay is not location but rather a name -- Thomas Westbay. Westbay works for OSHA. Jack and Amber enter the squad room, and Amber identifies Westbay as the man that she saw.

The team hits another dead end when they realize that Westbay died in a car accident two days before King disappeared. Amber explains that she "knows" it is not an accident.

A Murder or Accident?

McGee goes to visit Abby in the garage. Jimmy Lancaster from the DOD arrives with the King file. He begs McGee to ask the psychic for the location of his lost wedding ring, but McGee is not amused. Abby reminds McGee that she believes in both God and the immortal soul. McGee wisely steers the topic back to Westbay's car, which Abby has just examined. The police thought that Westbay fell asleep while he was driving since there was no attempt at braking before the impact. Abby believes that Westbay did hit the brakes and that they failed. However, the brakes were working fine when the police checked the car. McGee notices that Westbay brought the car into the mechanic about every three weeks, which is strange for a new vehicle.

Torres has a sit-down with the mechanic, who has a criminal history, but denies having anything to do with any murders. In fact, he never even worked on Westbay's car. Westbay took bribes and would bring the mechanic cash that the mechanic, in turn, would give to someone to launder it for him. The phony invoices covered the mechanic's cut.

Buried Treasure

That evening, as Gibbs is sitting down with some popcorn and beer at home, Amber knocks on his door. He has invited her over to discuss the case. She knows that Gibbs doesn't believe her, and when he hands her the gas cap from Westbay's car, she seems surprised. When he reaches for the cap, she gets an impression and asks for a pen.

McGee and Bishop take Amber's map and a shovel to find some buried evidence. Delilah has had the blood test but ordered the doctor not to tell McGee the results. When Bishop makes a joke about hacking the doctor's computer, McGee seems to consider it. Just then, he stumbles into a depression in the ground. They pull a metal box from the ground, exactly where Amber said it would be located.

Abby pores over the buried treasure in the lab. The box contains a computer drive for a car that can cause mechanical issues in vehicles. The drive caused the brakes in Westbay's car to stop working temporarily and then turned them back on before the investigators found the car. That is frightening.

There is also a GPS hiker's watch registered to King in the box. Someone hacked into the GPS coordinates, which caused King to wander deeper into the forest. Abby is running prints from the items in the box, and they belong to Amber Davis.

Jack and Ducky watch as Gibbs interrogates Amber and shows her pictures of the evidence. Gibbs has a picture of her in customs when she flew to the US from Uganda using a fake passport. Amber points out that she gave Gibbs the location of the box while holding the victim's gas cap. It was actually Gibbs' gas cap. Amber continues to proclaim her innocence and asks Gibbs to promise that he won't set up an innocent person. She pledges to help NCIS figure out what is going on.

Jack, Ducky and Gibbs discuss what is going on with their suspect. Is it possible that she killed the men but suppressed the memories? The voices that she hears could be the beginning of the memories returning to her conscience mind.

Grief and Loss

Bishop meets with Amber's ex-husband, and he denies knowing either of the victims. He wants to see Amber, and Bishop shares that she is being transferred to a psychiatric hospital. He admits that he did not want the divorce, but he was shocked with how quickly Amber moved on after their daughter's death. Bishop is in for a shock when Amber's ex reveals that their daughter died when a floor collapsed during a birthday party. I guess that explains motive for killing the crooked OSHA inspector and steel magnate who sold defective goods. It was Westbay's final report that cleared King of any liability.

Gibbs shows Amber a photo of the building where her daughter died, and she denies that her daughter died there. After some prodding from Jack, she responds that the two men killed her daughter and deserved to die.

Amber refused to accept that the building collapse was accidental and launched her own investigation. Instead of turning over the evidence that she uncovered, she decided to take matters into her own hands.

Bishop receives a call that the transport van that was bringing Amber to the psychiatric hospital is missing, and the driver is not answering his phone.

The teams get a call that the van was in an accident off a rural highway, and Amber is not there. Jack asks Gibbs what his famous gut is telling him, and he doesn't respond. The driver of the van woke up, and Amber was gone. He claims that the steering went out on the van, yet the van swerved at the last second to avoid a tree branch that was hanging down in its path. Somehow, Amber figured out a way to connect the tablet to the firmware and cause the van to crash.

McGee and Abby have some distressing news. Someone is trying to hack into the NCIS system to access the King files. Gibbs surprises everyone and tells them to let Amber in to see what she is looking for. It turns out that she is after the address of Jimmy Lancaster, who earlier had brought over the files from the DOD.

A Surprising Confession

Lancaster goes downstairs at his house and sees a bunch of missed calls from NCIS and Amber holding a gun on him. She accuses Lancaster of slipping information to King so King could avoid all the charges against him. Lancaster offers her the bribery money back, but she is not interested.

The team goes in and surrounds Amber, but Gibbs knows that she won't shoot. She has already emptied the gun of bullets and recorded Lancaster's confession on a tablet. Amber stops by to thank Gibbs for helping her remember how her daughter, Juliet, died. She asks if he is disappointed that she cannot communicate with the dead. As she leaves, the ghost of Mike Franks has a chat with Gibbs. I love Franks!

And McGee gets a call from Delilah that she had an emergency sonogram, and she tells him to check his e-mail. A panicked McGee check his e-mail and sees a video of his children -- a boy and a girl!

I really liked this episode! It was a bit silly at times, but at the end, I was on the edge of my seat, like I wasn't exactly sure what was going on and I liked that. And it was a case that actually kept me interested, so that was a bonus. Also, I totally saw the bit about the twins coming. That's like straight out of a fic, lmao.

I finally saw this episode and I really enjoyed it. It felt more like the old episodes: a one-off case (that doesn’t involve terrorists for once), and intriguing plot, and some good humor.
