The best-of-seven-game World Series starts tonight at the home park of the American League champion Kansas City Royals, thanks to the AL's 5-3 win in the All-Star Game. The World Series shouldn't creep into November this year, as Game 7, if necessary, is slated for Oct. 29. Joe Buck, Harold Reynolds and Tom Verducci call the action.
During a Coast Guard and NCIS training exercise at sea, Gibbs and Agent Borin (Mark Harmon, recurring guest star Diane Neal) spot a body in the water that turns out to be the remains of a missing crew member from a ship 60 nautical miles away. Upon boarding that other vessel, Gibbs discovers too late that he's on a ship that has been seized by pirates in the new episode "The San Dominick." Jim Beaver ("Supernatural") also guest stars.
A new Halloween-themed special episode "We Love You to DeAth" is an ode to viewers that features interviews with stars Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell and Sasha Pieterse, who address burning questions from fans. The special also includes other cast and crew members who give the audience a glimpse behind the scenes on the production. There's also a "dearly departed" segment of interviews with former cast members who met a brutal fate on the show.
