Spoilers for Season 18 Episode 3: 'Blood and Treasure'
Tobias Fornell is back once again with more news on the drug kingpin he and Jetro Gibbs have been changing on NCIS. But that's no the most concerning bit about December 8's episode titled 'Blood and Treasure'. The focus of all hell that breaks loose, as the name suggests, is the blood spilled around a treasure created by a mastermind who sounds like a sociopath at first but is soon warmed up like a man jilted by love. Called Angus DeMint, here's why he had created the treasure map.
According to the official CBS synopsis for Season 18's Episode 3, “The discovery of two dead bodies in a forest leads the NCIS team into the wild world of modern-day treasure hunting. Also, Gibbs and Fornell get deeper into their search for the opioid kingpin.”
When a petty officer turns called Diego Barnes was found bleeding out on his fire escape, the reason behind his murder turned out to be him having solved the DeMint treasure map. Barnes was one of the several people lured in by the prospect of two million in gold and by the looks of it, whoever killed Barnes, knew him as he had gone around bragging about solving the treasure.
This very treasure was created by Angus, who the NCIS team believes has a severe God complex. At first, he looks like another businessman living off his life's savings, sending people off to kill each other over his treasure because he enjoys watching others suffer even though he insists it was to send more people out in nature. In the end, however, it is revealed that whatever Angus did was out of anger over his wife being taken away from him too soon. It was his sick way of getting back at the universe for making him lose the love of his life.
It is only when his daughter Margo gets kidnapped by a man called Xander that Angus decides to help the NCIS solve the treasure map. Together they take down Xander and Angus has time to apologize to the said estranged daughter too. In the end Angus and Margo also dug the treasure out and turned it into a foundation in the name of his deceased wife.
'NIS' Season 18 airs on Tuesdays at 8 pm only on CBS.
