NCIS Spoilers: Team Member Will Be Shot!

by at . Comments

NCIS is off next week after last night's episode, but when it returns in November, it will do so with a vengeance in time for fall sweeps, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Around the middle of next month, a main character is going to have a nasty, potentially lethal run-in with a deadly weapon - a development that opens many other doors.

“The shocking shooting opens a door to the past,” executive producer Shane Brennan says, “[and] explains a relationship which has kept fans guessing for several seasons.”

NCIS Director Vance

How will NCIS Director Vance (Rocky Carroll) be involved in this story line?

The NCIS team member in question is either Tony, McGee, Vance or Ziva. It's one of those four, meaning Ducky, Abby and Gibbs are off the hook. But the rest is a mystery.

Who gets shot is very much unclear, but it's very likely that Vance and Eli David are heavily involved in the story line. Beyond that, your guesses are as good as ours.

On November 9, Robert Wagner returns as Tony Sr. The shooting (and its aftermath) serves as the centerpiece of a special two-part episode airing November 16-23.

UPDATE #1: We used "team member" in the same sense as "cast member," not meaning to imply that it isn't Vance (though it may not be). Apologies for the confusion.

UPDATE #2: As per Entertainment Weekly October 28, McGee is NOT the victim. That leaves Tony, Vance, and Ziva in the running. Also this is not a traditional shooting.

The person will be wounded not by a gun, but by an explosive weapon.

i wish they would make a McGee-centric episode. they haven't had one in a while, and I don't think they've let him reach his full potential. also, McGee is the only team member who hasn't had a near-death experience like the others, and the worst that's happened to him physically would be either the dog attack or the dislocated shoulder. whatever the writers throw at Sean Murray, im confident he can pull it off.

Are we ever going to see Mike Franks again? His character is really good. Hopefully he's been using this time off to master is shooting skills with his other hand. Just wondering.

It's obviously Vance and Netty will show up dressed as a man and try to take over but the Cowboy character who told people to get their feet of the desk will become Director and Gibbs will cry on Abbie's shoulder not because he's sad but because he secretly wished Vance dead and Ziva will go back to Mossad to be her dad's personal bodyguard and will be killed on the way to the airport.

Get rid of the music that you added recently. It is terrible,cannot here voices of actors and it is difficult to follow. If you put up volumn the here louder music rather than voices. Also, hate the new Hollywood NCIS. Will not watch again. I am a big fan of the original and hav e been watching for a long time. Leave alone the original. elle

In the article it narrows it down to either Tony or Ziva, it also states that it was a "team member, not a "cast member". I really hope it's Tony or Ziva. Despite reading many comments, I am feverently holding onto the hope that it is not the Director, because with him, I think less is more, and some things are left better unsaid and unknown. I think it would be a MASSIVE let down after all this hype (especially for all us HardCores) But, whatever the outcome, I am still looking forward to the episode, whenever it airs here in Australia.

I'm guessing it's Ziva or Tony. If it's Tony it would be super interesting to see how ziva reacts especially if her father is involved. As long as not one of them dies I'll be fine.

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: You know the "Men" in "Men's Room" is more of a rule than a suggestion, probie.
Bishop: Look, you two always get to go off giggling to the urinal together and I always get left out. So we're going to talk and we're going to do it here.
