NCIS fans were left in shock as the hit crime series revealed a major secret about Gibbs during the latest episode. Although the secret was known to most, fans were split about the team’s reaction.


While the team was busy uncovering the mysteries of a secret bank account, fans were left in shock as the CBS crime procedural uncovered a shocking secret about Gibbs. 


The secret bank account was funding a vigilante group, which was controlled by the head of a council of judges, Judge Milo Deakin (Life Farell). The episode went on to reveal that Gibbs was responsible for the murder of Pedro Juan Hernandez.

In another shocking revelation, Milo discloses that he had already ordered a hit on Gibbs, the head of NCIS team.


As fans remember, Gibbs killed Hernandez to avenge the murders of his first wife, Shannon Gibbs, and his daughter Kelly Gibbs. 

To Gibbs surprise, he finds a photo of Hernandez in his car which prompted him to recall the day he shot him to death. A moment later, someone fired a shot at him from a distance.


Gibbs did not talk about the incident with his team as Ducky finds a connection between Judge Milo and the vigilante group. When he confronted the man about putting a hit on him, he denied everything. However, the man says that Gibbs is a bad man like himself since he killed an enemy. Meanwhile, Nick Torres puts his secret at risk while spying on Gibb’s visit.


As the episode unfolds, the team confronts Gibbs about all that went down. Judge Milo is arrested after the team discovers he hired Mallory to kill Gibbs. 

Towards the end of the episode, McGee, Bishop, and Torres reveal they have doubts about Gibbs moving forward but do not bring up the subject. 


Fans’ opinions were divided after the “big revelation” about Gibbs. Some of them took to Twitter to share their take on it. 

“I thought everybody knew. Who wouldn’t have guessed anyway.  Paloma Reynosa didn’t just come to visit to hang out eat pizza and learn to build a boat. smh,” one of the fans wrote. 


Another fan chimed in: “McGee definitely should’ve known about that! He was there when Abbey uncovered he secret several years ago. Isn’t that correct @NCIS_CBS?”

“How does McGee not know about Gibbs killing Pedro Hernandez that has been a plot line on many seasons,” a third fan wrote.

NCIS was renewed for the 17th season on April 11, 2019.
