NCIS Spoilers: Season Finale Serial Killer Details!

at . Comments

NCIS' eighth season will conclude with a dramatic serial killer plot that spans several episodes, beginning April 5. TV Line unearthed some interesting details today.

A psychopath dubbed the Port-to-Port Killer is at the center of the story arc, and this is one formidable adversary. Possibly even more so than the Reynosa Cartel.

We say that because Gibbs will expand the team to combat him.


At least two new special agents will soon be introduced to assist with the case.

One of the two new recurring characters is described as “a well-traveled, experienced federal agent who is happy to be reunited with his team in their new DC home.”

Presumably, this is in addition to Sarah Jane Morris' character, E.J. Barrett.

Morris' newly-introduced character just arrived from overseas in this week's NCIS episode, leaving quite an impression on Tony and causing a stir among many fans.

Michael Weatherly (Tony) previously said that Morris’ Special Agent will “arc out toward the end of [the] season and be a part of that epic season-finale situation.”

The cast is under contract for next season, but do you think the serial killer will claim the life of one of our team members? Or E.J.? Sound off in the comments!

Not Mike Franks!!! I loved his character. He said what he thought and if you didn't like it, get over it. His interaction with Gibbs was always a high point. I hope E.J. is the killer because I can't stand her either. Don't mess with my group!


EJ IS the serial killer. The man doing the actual killing is under her control and doing her bidding. That's why the director of NCIS brought her in.


kill ej cant stand her, and when is tony and ziva going to get togetehr already..


i think that NCIS is the best show on tv. ilove all the main characters so please do not kill any of them


I loved Mike! Why did they kill him off?????? If he isn't ill in real life, I think this was an awful move. I hope he is well. They better not kill of Ziva!!!! or Tony!!!! I cannot stand that woman, EJ. Hope she's out of the show. It's also not believable that Tony would so blithely have an affair with her. McGee is toooooo thin! He needs to gain a few pounds. He doesn't look good right now.


I hope that NCIS kills off the new agent from Spain (EJ) since it is very unrealistic that an agent that young would be a Team Leader....ALSO, hope that MIKE FRANKS stays on show as ghostly mentor to Gibbs as an ongoing character....He was most earthy, believable actor on show and certainly made it better!


As a longtime fan I too was disappointed that they killed off Mike Franks. I was hoping to see more of him on the show, he made it much better,not that it needed much help. Maybe they will do a Magnum PI and bring him back as a con man twin lol,like they did with Jeff Mackays character . On the plus side he lives on in reruns.


I love NCIS the cast is great. This is the one show that my family and I sit down every night and watch all the reruns over and over again. In away I guess you can say this is the show that brings my family and I closer. Thanks


I cant believe that the producers chose to kill Mike Franks. But it appears that Ducky may find out that he had a terminal illness,
like when Jenny was killed. His heavy smoking and coughing hinted that he may have been suffering from lung cancer. Sorry to see him go though. He was one of my favorite characters. I think we might see him as a "ghost" advising Gibbs in later episodes though. My concern now is, what will happen to his daughter-in-law and his granddaughter. I hope that is covered in a later episode. This show rarely leaves anything unexplained.


NCIS is the BOMB!!!!! Have watched since it began. Don't know why the killed off "Mike Franks"!!!! He played his character so well. It upset me to see him taken down, and taken down so easily!! Not consistent with his character at all. That was Gibbs tripping on a peanut shell and breaking his neck! "Mike" did really look ill, great makeup job, but like others here, my husband I had a debate over whether "Mike" is really ill. Glad to see he isn't. Thanks.
