Title: “Imposter Syndrome”
Airing: May 2nd, 2021
Filming: February 19th – March 1st, 2021
What CBS is telling us: NCIS obtains a hard drive containing a realistic deep fake video of a deceased terrorist and must retrieve the dangerous technology behind it. However, when the team’s comms are highjacked during their mission, they find that one of their own has been a victim of its potential.
What we think is happening: The team hunts for a criminal who is using Deep Fake technology to impersonate both a dead terrorist – and the team! Densi paints their new home.
