NCIS Origins Begins Production: Episode One Title Revealed in BTS Image

Mariel Molino shared a behind-the-scenes image from the set of “NCIS Origins” as production kicked off. The image revealed that the title of episode one will be “Enter Sandman,” possibly hinting at the time period of the prequel, which follows the younger years of Leroy Jethro Gibbs.

A behind-the-scenes image has unveiled the title of the first episode of “NCIS Origins.” This spin-off prequel series will explore the younger years of Mark Harmon’s long-running NCIS character, Leroy Jethro Gibbs, who departed the flagship program midway through season 19 in 2021. While Harmon will return as the narrator of the upcoming “NCIS Origins,” the younger version of Gibbs will be played by Austin Stowell. He will be joined by an ensemble cast that includes Mariel Molino, Kyle Schmid, Kian Talan, and Diana Rodriguez.

On her official Instagram account, Mariel Molino shared a story celebrating the start of production on the upcoming CBS series, which is set to debut as part of the network’s 2024-2025 season. It will air alongside returning shows “NCIS” for season 22 and “NCIS: Sydney” for season 2. The image Molino shared shows her touching her script for the first episode of the season, titled “Enter Sandman.”

What Does the NCIS Origins Pilot Episode Title Mean?

The title “Enter Sandman” is likely a reference to the 1991 Metallica song of the same name. This could indicate that the spin-off will include episode titles inspired by songs, a tradition seen in shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Hannah Montana.” However, this is not common in the NCIS franchise.

It is also possible that the title plays off the themes of the Metallica song itself. “Enter Sandman” refers to a character from European folklore who uses magical sand to put people to sleep. The lyrics conjure images of restless sleep and nightmares, suggesting the episode could involve Gibbs dealing with nightmares or insomnia as he prepares to join the NCIS team at the Camp Pendleton office, where he will meet his eventual mentor, Mike Franks.

Ultimately, the most likely explanation for the episode title is that it references the time period in which “NCIS Origins” takes place. The show will be set in the 1990s, around the time the Metallica song was a big hit. Even if this is the reason for the episode’s title, the specific choice could still imply that sleep or nightmares are part of the storyline, adding a double meaning to the name of the song.
