NCIS Planning Tony-Centric, Flashback-Driven Episode

by at . Comments

We just saw him act serious for the first time ever in "False Witness." Now get ready to once again see NCIS' Tony DiNozzo as you've never seen him before.

Before he worked at the agency, that is.

Executive producer Shane Brennan says a spring "origin episode" will delve into young DiNozzo’s life before he became an NCIS agent and one-half of Tiva.

Obsession By Tony

Michael Weatherly has been terrific this season as Tony.

TV's #1 drama already flashed back once this fall, offering a memorable two-part installment (see Parts I and II) centered on younger Vance and Eli David.

“The episode will reveal much about DiNozzo’s past as a Baltimore cop,” he says. “And yes, we’ll hear the first words exchanged between DiNozzo and Gibbs."

"It’s a memorable first meeting.”

Any guesses on what those words might be? Are you looking forward to seeing young Tony, or would you prefer an "origin" episode about another character?

Actually, Tony has been serious in many eps (Semper Fi, Aliyah, etc.), we've just never him serious for an entire episode before. Guess on Tony's first words to Gibbs : " "This reminds me of a movie..".

It would be nice to see the very first time Tony got slapped in the back of the head :D

I can't wait to see the Tony origin episode! I have no idea how they will do flashbacks, but have faith they will be clever enough to pull it off, and that the considerably talented Michael Weatherly will hit it out of the park!

A Tony origin episode is a great idea. I just wonder how they will make him look as young and slender as the first couple of NCIS seasons. Gibbs, "You should have shot to kill the bastard!" To young cop DiNozzo when he merely wounds a bad guy in a chase with Gibbs present. LOL
