Arms dealers, hit lists, truck stop bathrooms—episode six of NCIS’s 16th season truly had it all. But there’s one pivotal plot point that viewers cannot stop talking about: The mysterious emergence of CIA Officer Agent Westley Clark (Scott William Winters).
Clark enters the scene on the pretense that he is also trying to track down the details behind a former’s Marine’s death. NCIS Director Agent Vance (Rocky Carroll), who Clark insists he knows from Langley, begrudgingly agrees to let him help out with the case.
After a few more deaths and at least one tricky action sequence between Agents Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) and Bishop (Emily Wickersham), the team solves the crime and it’s time for Clark to leave. But as notes, his presence is as “sketchy as can be,” especially considering how often he references former nemesis Nigel Hakim, who . The outlet also points out that Clark was spotted watching Vance earlier this season, and suggests he might be testing Vance’s loyalty following his previous interactions with Hakim.
Special Agent Sloane (Maria Bello) takes good care to make sure Vance knows to watch out for Clark, and she’s not the only one who senses that something’s up with him. Fans of the series also took to social media to express their very prevalent distrust.
“He’s trouble!” one user commented, while another said he, “gives off bad vibes.” Another user noted, “I don’t trust Officer Clark as far as I can throw him!”
To the follower who asked, “Am I the only one who gets a funny feeling with this Clark guy?”: The answer is unequivocally no. The “smarmy” and “suspicious” new CIA officer on the scene is definitely up to something—and our bet is that it won't lead to anything good!
