In the latest episode of NCIS, Jess Knight is praised as a hero after saving a mother and son from a car wreck, but she is annoyed by the media attention. As the team investigates further, Knight is benched from the team. She visits a diner and bonds with a young man named Adam who opens up to her about his mother. He plays her some tracks he mixed on his phone, which provides the key to blowing the whole case wide open. Adam's mother is found safe after a showdown with a cartel, and he sends Knight a compilation of all the news reports to remind her of the hero she is. The episode aired on CBS in the US.
