Shane Brennan Promises NCIS "Origin" Episodes

at . Comments

Last week, we posted some NCIS Season 8 spoilers that hinted at blasts from the past for our favorite characters, possibly explaining how longtime veterans of the team ended up there.

Executive producer Shane Brennan expounded on this in a talk with Entertainment Weekly, promising 1-2 "origin episodes" this season. That's a cooler way of saying flashbacks.

Right? 

“You’ll find out how certain members of the team first came to NCIS,” reveals the boss of the long-running show and NCIS: Los Angeles. “It’ll be hard to do them without flashbacks.”

Which characters would you like to see flashback episodes devoted to, if any? If done right and tied to present-day events (in other words, not filler), these might actually be cool.

Here's hopinh for Abby ...

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.
Palmer: You want me to fight, I feel like I just went ten rounds with Joe Louis.
Gibbs: Do you want to be a dad, Palmer? Because right now, this is being a dad.
Palmer: Maybe I'm not ready.
Gibbs: You wouldn't feel the way you feel, right now, if you weren't ready.
