The 18th season of NCIS is still going strong with the story focusing on Gibbs’ (played by Mark Harmon) suspension from the team. CBS will air the 12th episode of the current run, Sangre, on April 27 but looking beyond that and with question marks continuing to surround Gibbs’ place in the squad, the US network has teased what’s in store for the show’s leading man. And in what will be an undoubtedly welcome reunion among the fandom, Gibbs will finally come face to face with young Phineas (Jack Fisher) for the first time since season 17.

The episode in which the two will reunite is the 14th instalment of season 18, titled Unseen Improvements.

As well as some first-look pictures, CBS has also released a short synopsis of what fans can expect.

The plot reads: “NCIS tracks a stolen laptop to the uncle of a young boy, Phineas, Gibbs’ former neighbour, on NCIS.”

But what could this mean for Gibbs in the episode? Well, it looks like he could be back getting his hands stuck into an ongoing investigation.

After all, why else would Gibbs be allowed to speak to a person of interest like Phineas given his links to his uncle and the laptop?

Heading into Sangre and the subsequent episode, Misconduct, however, Gibbs is still being shunned by Director Vance (Rocky Carroll).

Perhaps his links to Phineas could provide the perfect opportunity for him to be reinstated and bring down the child’s uncle.

It’s also possible the uncle has links to Phineas’ mother and old foe of Gibbs’, Sahar (Louise Barnes).

It’s hard to forget just why and how Gibbs and Phineas first crossed paths after he and his mother moved in next door.

Sahar had everyone fooled – going by the name Sarah – when in fact she was secretly working for a terrorist cell.

Sarah had even struck up quite the bond with Gibbs, with some fans tipping a romance between the two earlier in the series.

However, Sahar had a target mark set on Ziva (Cote de Pablo) following her return to the fray in season 17.

But just as she had Ziva in her sights in season 17, Gibbs intervened and managed to shoot and kill Sahar.

Of course, this left Phineas on his own, but it looks like he’s been doing okay judging by the first-look at his reunion with Gibbs.

In the snap, Gibbs even has the youngster over for dinner as the two look deep in discussion – but is it about Phineas’ uncle or even his mother?

Fans will have to wait until episode 14 to find out for sure but it looks like Phineas’ return won’t be opening the door for Ziva to also reappear.

The last fans heard of Ziva she was loving life in Paris with Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) and their child.

And before season 18 began, the executive producers ruled out de Pablo returning due to the complications posed by the coronavirus pandemic and filming restrictions.

But will Phineas be around for the long haul to stay by Gibbs’ side?

And will the team get to the bottom of just why his uncle stole the laptop?

NCIS season 18 continues Tuesday on CBS in the USA.
