Is Gibbs' Job in Danger on NCIS?

by at . Comments

Among the many unanswered questions stemming from NCIS' Season 7 finale and the truth behind Pedro Hernandez's murder coming to light is whether Leroy Jethro Gibbs' job is in legitimate jeopardy at the agency. One way or another, this will have to be reconciled.

According to TV Guide, the Hernandez case will add a new layer to the already contentious, heavily nuanced relationship between Gibbs and his superior, Director Leon Vance.

"You'll see Vance's somewhat shocking reaction in the premiere," says executive producer Shane Brennan, who hints at a likely tie-in with Vance's own mysterious past.

"Sometimes when you think something's done, things pop up years later," he says.

"You've got that famous moment where the new director moves into his office for the first time and shreds a piece of paper. That's one of those moments."

How much is Vance willing to look the other way? Thoughts on that little tidbit, as well as the rest of the NCIS Season 8 spoilers we posted yesterday, are welcome.

I believe that in the end Gibbs would watch Vamce's back and vice versal. We do not know what is in the C.I.A folder that Trent gave to Gibbs. And yea, what exactly did Vance shred...?
