NCIS Sneak Peek: Elisabeth Röhm Is Wowed by Abby's 'Science Police' Work

This week on CBS’ NCIS, insect genocide just might help solve a homicide.

In the episode “Beastmaster” (airing tonight at 8/7c), after a Marine Sergeant is found murdered in Rock Creek Park, Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon) and the NCIS team partner with Mounted Police Sergeant May Dawson (the ever-ubiquitous Elisabeth Röhm) to solve a string of related crimes in the park.

In the exclusive sneak peek above, NCIS’ Abby (Pauley Perrette) is introduced to Dawson, then promptly draws a connection between a distinct insecticide and a bag of human skulls that had been discovered.

As NCIS co-showrunner Frank Cardea previously shared as part of TVLine’s May Sweeps Preview Spectacular, the team-up with a Mounted Police Sergeant means “horses are involved,” and Boss himself is set to saddle up. “Mark [Harmon] is a great horseman himself, and he actually rides in the episode. He looks good on a horse!”
