'NCIS' season 14 episode 9 spoilers: Vance to form ties with a congresswoman in distress

(Facebook/NCIS)The squad will take another interesting case in the upcoming episode of "NCIS."

Director Vance (Rocky Carroll) will personally supervise the operation to guard a congresswoman in distress in the upcoming episode of "NCIS."

In the episode titled "Pay to Play," the spoilers reveal that the NCIS head will tap his entire team to protect a politician who has been receiving death threats. With the situation quickly escalating, Congresswoman Jenna Flemming (Mary Stuart Masterson) must be placed under protective detail while the other members of the squad investigate who wants her dead. As per TVLine, Flemming is "a witty, savvy and seasoned congresswoman who doesn't mince words and gets things done her way." Along the way, she must have acquired a lot of enemies, but who is desperate enough to go after her?

Meanwhile, there have been rumors that one of the main characters of the series will take a leave of absence. As per HNGN, Mark Harmon, who plays Gibbs in all 14 seasons, may even exit the show because of health concerns. The actor was reportedly advised to take a break and get some rest. This remains unconfirmed, since Harmon and CBS have yet to comment about the speculation.

If Harmon will indeed leave, many of the show's fans will be very disappointed. Michael Weatherly, who played DiNozzo, already left at the end of the last installment. Before him, Cote de Pablo, who played Ziva, also exited the show.

Things have been a lot interesting in the NCIS with the addition of its new members. Agents Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) and Quinn (Jennifer Esposito) recently joined the group as replacements to DiNozzo. Although it took a while for the two to adjust to working with a team, Gibbs is quite satisfied with the rate things are going for the NCIS. Both Torres and Quinn have exciting storylines and the fans want to know more about them.

"NCIS" season 14 episode 9 airs on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
