NCIS Head of the Snake cast: Who guest stars in NCIS season 18, episode 7?

NCIS will be airing a double-bill on CBS tonight (January 19) as it returns to screens for the first time since December. One of the episodes is called Head of the Snake and it promises some big revelations for the major characters. Ahead of it airing, Express.co.uk has got everything you need to know about the guest cast, including where you might recognise them from.

So far in season 18, viewers have been following Leroy Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon) and Tobias Fornell (Joe Spano) on their covert mission.

The pair have been investigating the opioid dealers who supplied Fornell’s daughter with an almost lethal dose of drugs back in season 16.

Most of the action has taken place in the past as they investigated potential leads but episode seven will finally bring them to the present day.

The synopsis teases: “Gibbs and Fornell’s crusade to find the head of the drug ring responsible for Fornell’s daughter Emily’s (Juliette Angelo) overdose comes to a climax.

“Also, Gibbs and Vance (Rocky Carroll) finally let the team in on a case that has dangerous implications.”
