Is Gibbs' Job in Danger on NCIS?

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.

NCIS Quotes

Palmer: I take it you heard?
Gibbs: Mmm hmm.
Palmer: Yeah, she saw the baby and just....I guess she felt the same way we felt when we first saw him. Can't fault her for that, right?
Gibbs: You should go home.
Palmer: I will. Yeah Breena and I, we just wanted to get all this stuff out of the house. You know, we wanted to give it back as soon as possible.
Gibbs: We.
Palmer: Me. She's hurting too, but she is so much stronger. She's ready to try again. And me - I feel like I can't breathe. I never felt this bad in my life, Gibbs.
Gibbs: Well, just wait until it's 3:00 in the morning, and your kid's running 104. You're just getting started.
Palmer: That's the point. I'm not starting, you know? Maybe I never will.
Gibbs: Well then fight for it, Palmer! That's what you do. You fight for your family. And sometimes, you fight like hell just to have one.
