Sarah Jane Morris' E.J. Barrett, who caused quit a stir this spring, will return for the NCIS Season 9 premiere. Will she stick around the agency beyond September 22?
"There's a new wrinkle in [Tony and E.J.'s] relationship, and I would say it is somewhat troubling," says Michael Weatherly (Tony), in an interview with TV Guide.
"I think Tony questions a lot of things about her," the actors says. "And I don't think there's any going back to their initial blinky-blinky, lovey-dovey plot."
That doesn't necessarily guarantee major Tony-Ziva developments, though.
"Tony ultimately has to lean on himself. He has to figure some of his own stuff out," Weatherly says, adding, in open-ended fashion, that this "might make him more able down the road to approach a relationship with Ziva."
