NCIS Sneak Peek: Will Gibbs Take a 'Stab' at Removing Tony's Splinter?

Is there a Gibbs Rule about not whining about splinters? If not, NCIS‘ DiNozzo might want to add one and heed it, ASAP.

In the above sneak peek from tonight’s episode (airing at 8/7c, on CBS), Abby delivers to Gibbs! Gibbs! Gibbs! her findings on what a discovered bullet did and did not hit. Boss then tasks DiNozzo and McGee with revisiting the crime scene — only, the former is still nursing a splinter he got while working the case earlier.

Tony’s options are thus: Let Gibbs remove the fleck of wood with his trusty (and kinda big) blade, or hope that Abby’s “banana peel” remedy works. Which way will he go?

Elsewhere in the episode, the murder of a retired Navy Lieutenant Commander forces Ducky to reveal his participation in a secret society that solves cold cases; Jessica Walter (Arrested Development) guest-stars.
