NCIS season 17 is almost over with just one more episode left to air before the CBS crime drama ends for another series. In yesterday’s (Tuesday, March instalment entitled Blarney, it wasn’t the agents who found themselves in a tricky situation this time but rather forensic scientist Kasie Hines (played by Diona Reasonover) and medical examiner Jimmy Palmer (Brian Dietzen). The drama for the pair first began when they went for breakfast together.
Warning: This article contains spoilers from NCIS season 17, episode 19.
Before going to work in this week’s episode of NCIS, Jimmy wanted to stop off at the diner for breakfast and on his way there, he bumped into Kasie.
The pair decided to eat together but while they were at their table, they saw a customer (Leif Gantvoort) was being rude to one of the servers and so they stood up for her.
The man backed down and walked away, leaving a grateful server to thank you Kasie and Jimmy for their assistance.
However, this was not the last they would see of the man as him and two others were next seen robbing the jewellery store across the road.
They came across armed guards and one of them was injured so because they were unable to get to their getaway car fast enough, they ran to the diner and held everyone in there hostage.

The three men were Bobby, Lenny and Max who was the leader of the pack.
Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and the rest of his team were already investigating a body which had been left in the dumpster by their building.
They soon found out the body was of fellow thief Daniel Spagnolo who the others killed earlier that day as he was mouthing off to Max.
Kasie was ordered to help the injured robber and the pair continued to do their best not only to protect everyone else in the diner but themselves.

At the end of NCIS’ Blarney, robber Bobby had died from his injuries and Max ordered Jimmy to cut him open as they all swallowed condoms filled with stolen diamonds and he didn’t want to miss out on them.
While he did so, on Kasie’s instruction, Jimmy pretended Bobby had suffered serious internal bleeding thanks to the jewels which meant the other two were also in danger of the same fate.
While Lenny handed himself in shortly after, Max was distracted long enough for NCIS to storm in and arrest him.
NCIS season 17’s finale airs next Tuesday, April 14, at 9pm on CBS.
