NCIS Scoop: Ziva's Past, Gibbs' Dad, Allison Hart's Return

at . Comments

What will happen to Gibbs' father in the new season of NCIS? What happens to Allison Hart? Will the after-effects of Ziva's capture in Somalia play a role in future events?

In a brief chat with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Shane Brennan teases what we can expect regarding all of the above topics. Here's what he has to say ...

On the resolution of May's cliffhanger Season Seven finale: “The [Season Eight] premiere will speak volumes about what sort of father Gibbs Sr. was to his son ... And you see why Gibbs is very much cut from the same cloth. He may be old, but he’s feisty.”

Is there more trouble ahead for Ziva (Cote de Pablo)?

On Ziva's harrowing experiences in Somalia and elsewhere “In November sweeps, we dip again into a story that perhaps everyone thought was played out. It involves Ziva.”

On whether September marks the return of M. Allison Hart (Rena Sofer): “She’s not in the premiere. But she didn’t die. Unless they carry you out feet first, never say never.”

For gods sake, lose Rena Sofer. She's the worst thing that has ever happened to an otherwise great show.


I love NCIS and just about everyone on it, although Jenny got a little tedious with those suggestive glances at Gibbs, but really - Gibbs and Ziva? ? ? That about me toss my cookies. Please no, don't DO this. And a total gross out after she's said he's like a father to her. Disgusting disgusting disgusting. Spend more time on the cases, less on the romantic exercises. It's too small a group of people to have them linked other than in a co-worker capacity. I did think Abby and McGee were cute - but most of that was left to the imagination and that was great.


Don't like the Gibbs/Lawyer thing, she's sooo not right for him, she's pushy and errogant, Remember Hollis? Gibbs is fine on his own. Or put him with Abby, they're cute together and the sexual tension is amazing. Abby and McGeek was just too cutsey, Gibbs is like her polar opposite and that's why they work. She's the only woman that's lasted with him, isnt afraid of him an understands him, she doesnt threaten his memories of Shannon. And for her, he's a solid force for her, he gets her and loves her quirks. You don't have to actually have them sleep together though it would be great but hints that they're together and happy would work. Twenty years of greiving is over the top and every actress other than Jenny Sheppards (Holly) just doesn't fit. You blew it not hooking them up when you had the chance so let's give Abby and Gibbs a shot.


ZIVA is the worst thing about this show - kill her off already.


bring back gibbs father, dinozzo's father, fornell, trent kort,and mike(from mexico_ let them join in in assisting the team dinozzo's father could be an undercover agent of some sort all of this time) also let it be a two parter ending with a christmas reunion of them all in the offices of ncis


I have to agree that lawyer Allison needs to go. My Mom and I can't stand her. Don't get me wrong; Rena Sofer is a good actress, but she is not NCIS material and she needs to go. :)


More tiva = over the moon me :D
Mor Allison Hart = Me not watching the episodes and only the tiva scenes because I cannot STAND her! Youd think after all the uproar and outrage from fans that they would have killed her by now, right? But no, they continue to torture us. When her and Gibbs almost kissed, I swear, I crippled. Ugh! Tony and Ziva on the other hand... ;)


That lawyer bitch needs to die. i HATE HER!! dare i say NCIS LA had the better season last year?




I Hate the lawyer.. always skipped her scenes cuz it got soo damn boring!!! want to know what happend to Ziva in somaliathough.. I tink she was raped because come on..hold captive a feew monthsbeaten by men?/ Saleem is evil so i think he rped her maybe...i donno but i cant wait until Eli appears... i alo am stating to wonder why she never speaks of her mother.. especially if sh is alive why wouldnt she talk to her about all tis??right??

McGee: All right. Well you should probably know that Abby and I used to date?
Bishop: Ew. Like, each other?
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: Wait - isn't that a violation of rule 12, never date a....
McGee: It was a long time ago. After we'd broken up, one night I went to her lab. Found a scribbled piece paper; a list. Potential boyfriends had to fulfill certain conditions by a pre-arranged date or else, goodbye.
Bishop: Such as.
McGee: Things started off relatively normal: opening the door for her, flowers, putting the seat down. Then around number 8, it gets uh...
Bishop: What?
McGee: Does she know you have these?
Bishop: Does she know you have these?
McGee: Yeah she wasn't happy when she found out.
Bishop: These are all very specific.
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: These ideas apply to you?
McGee: No those rules weren't in place when we were together. At least I don't think so.
Bishop: What's with the two month cutoff? Abby's sabotaging herself. I've seen stuff like this before. We have to talk to her.

Tony: One other question, I know you're an expert in English history. And I was just wondering, have you ever heard of Archibald Drummond, the 17th Earl of Trent?
Ducky: The Earl of Trent. No, I can't say I have. Why?
Tony: I was just wondering. Thanks.
