‘NCIS’: Palmer’s Daughter Shows Off Her Humor in Sneak Peek

Recently, we got a sneak peek at the upcoming “NCIS” episode, and it’s safe to say that Victoria Palmer gets her humor from her dad. The preview of the episode “The Helpers” features Palmer bringing his daughter to see the team. McGee and Torres immediately greet her, with Victoria running up to hug McGee and call him “Uncle Tim.”

Torres calls her “Crown Vic” and she calls him “Uncle Nick.” The two share a secret handshake that is just the cutest thing ever. Torres asks if it’s bring your daughter to work day, and Victoria says, “Not exactly.” But Palmer doesn’t explain why she’s there just yet, because Jessica Knight shows up to the bullpen, exclaiming, “Is this the famous Victoria Palmer I’ve been hearing about?”

Apparently, Palmer has been telling Victoria stories about Agent Knight. Victoria greets her, and Knight insists that she call her “Jess.” She’s a bit awkward trying to relate to Victoria, complementing her shoes and her backpack. It’s funny, but seems a bit weird, because doesn’t Knight have a niece? Shouldn’t she know how to talk to kids? Maybe she’s just weird around children she doesn’t know. Then again, she could be totally awkward around her own niece as well. Hopefully she gets to relate to Victoria a little better as the episode progresses.

Palmer introduces Victoria to Alden Parker, and she says, “When did Gibbs grow a beard?” Palmer and Parker think she’s serious, but when her dad starts to explain, she gives him a sly little look.

“You got me,” says Palmer. “She’s pulling our leg,” he tells Parker. Parker says, “A real chip off dad’s block, huh?” No kidding. Victoria is sweet, and so kind, but she has a funny streak a mile wide.
