Leroy Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon) and his NCIS crew have often cropped up in the CBS spin-off based in Los Angeles over the years. With the two series, as well as NCIS: New Orleans all existing in the same universe, there’s ample opportunity for Gibbs to cross paths with the likes of Sam Hanna (LL Cool J) and G Callen (Chris O’Donnell). However, with so much drama existing in the same world as well as the fact crossovers have taken place means there have been one or two overlooked errors.
One such error has been exposed for fans revisiting the NCIS: LA and Scorpion crossover of 2014.
In the episode, Hetty Lange (Linda Hunt) goes undercover to help out the Scorpion team track down a suspect.
This pretty much establishes Scorpion to in the same universe as NCIS but the plot hole doesn’t lie with Hetty.
Fans have pointed out an error with US Special Agent Cabe Gallo (Robert Patrick) from the CBS drama.

Colonel Merton Bell was a character who didn’t take too kindly to ending up in jail as a result of Gibbs’ detective work.
Therefore, he plotted his revenge back in NCIS season seven as he plotted his revenge.
Unfortunately for Merton, all didn’t go to plan and the character was killed off in the one episode he appeared in.
If Scorpion existed in the same world as NCIS, how was this late Colonel reappearing some years later as a Special Agent?
