CBS fans are excited NCIS Season 20 Premiere. The new season picks up where season 19 left off with Special Agent Alden Parker on the run with ex-wife Vivian Kolchak – and The Raven is still at large. So who is The Raven? Here’s what the showrunner had to say about the villain.
The NCIS season 20 premiere will feature more of The Raven
NCIS Season 20 will bring The Raven back into play. In Season 19, Special Agent Alden Parker and his ex-wife Vivian Kolchak decided to run from the law together. Parker was framed for the murder of Frank Ressler, leading to his wanting to flee. Unfortunately, his ex-wife, who was previously kidnapped, doesn’t seem to have good intentions. “It’s done. I’ve got it,” she wrote to a mystery person during the season 19 cliffhanger.
It looks like fans can expect more from The Raven in Season 20. The mysterious villain has been known to harm others with biotoxins, Distractify notes. Palmer and Kasie nearly died from these toxins from the character. Now, in the season 20 premiere, the NCIS Crew will have the help of NCIS: Hawaii Special agents to track down the villain.
“Enlisting the help of NCIS: Hawaii’s While in town meeting with director Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll) to prepare for a global military exercise, Special Agent Jane Tennant (Vanessa Lachey) and computer specialist Ernie Malick (Jason Antoon) and computer specialist Ernie Malick (Jason Antoon) lead the group to their prime suspect, The Raven. ‘ the episode description reads.
Who is “The Raven”? The showrunner says fans “think they know.”
So who is The Raven? According to showrunner Steven D. Binder, “The Raven” may not even be a single person. In fact, the villain could be a group of people posing as one person.
“We don’t know exactly who or what ‘The Raven’ is,” the showrunner told TVLine. “We think we know, but i can tell you that we do Not knows.”
Fans on Reddit have some interesting theories about the character. “My theory is that it’s a mole within NCIS,” wrote one Reddit user. “My guess would be Piper (the red-haired tech troll). There are only two reasons why they’ve introduced this character more than once this season. Either she will truly be a love interest for Kasie, or there will be a plot twist and reveal that she is behind the whole biochemical terrorist attack.”
It’s more than likely that Vivian is in league with The Raven. Given her suspicious text at the end of the season 19 finale, it would make sense that she would at least be implicated in, if not lead, the terror. But given how obvious that would be, let’s imagine it NCIS Showrunners want to give fans something tougher to take away. Vivian is probably familiar with The Raven, but the idea that the villain inside is more of a supporting character seems a lot more likely.
Fans will also see Vivian Kolchak begin to unravel
With the NCIS The season 20 premiere focuses on Special Agent Alden Parker and his ex-wife Vivian Kolchak, fans will see more of their dynamic play. And they will also find out what Vivian is really up to.
“Vivian won’t be able to hide her shenanigans for long,” Binder told TV Insider.
Nick Torres and Jane Tennant will direct the hunt for The Raven across the United States NCIS/NCIS: Hawaii’ Crossover event, and fans could find out the villain’s identity by the end of the season premiere. We’ll have to wait and find out.
