Enemy Combatant is the 8th episode of NCIS Season 14 and the 314th episode of the entire NCIS series.


After being sent to Gitmo to gather evidence for a murder case concerning a chaplain with the United States Navy, Bishop begins questioning her previous work with the NSA while her brothers, George, Robert and John visit for the Thanksgiving holiday and pester her co-workers at NCIS in an attempt to find out who she's dating.

Major EventsEdit

  • Bishop's other two older brothers, John and Robert are introduced for the first time.
  • It's revealed that Bishop's brothers egged Jake Malloy's car.
  • Everyone soon learns that Bishop is dating NCIS translator Qasim Naasir.


  • The episode aired on the November 22nd instead of the previous episode, Pay to Play.
  • In this episode Tim says he has worked with Ellie just over four years but in fact, it has actually been three.
  • Despite being the 9th episode of the season, it aired as the 8th, since this is specifically a Thanksgiving episode and although this was officially the 315th episode, it aired as the 314th episode instead.
  • This is also the first episode of the entire NCIS series to have the names of both Frank Cardea and George Schenck appear at the end credits followed by late Executive Producer Gary Glasberg and former Executive Producer Donald P. Bellisario. This is because Cardea and Schenck are the new showrunners for NCIS, replacing Glasberg who died suddenly in September 2016.
