How Long Will E.J. Stay at NCIS?

by at . Comments

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."

Tired of victim, damsel Ziva, dumb and incompetent Tony, snarky McGee, baby Abby, and Daddy Gibbs. Please GG, bring back Ziva, whose every story doesn't have to be a big fat tragic drama, smart and brave Tony, sweet and smart McGee, funny and confident Abby, and gunny Gibbs with a side of wicked humor. This would fix the awful soapish writing and give our NCIS characters more than the one dimensional treatment they've had for four years.

Ann I agree NCIS is # 1 because of Ziva. Kate was a little boring, I like her a little bit. but I Like Ziva way better

Ziva is one reason for their No. 1 spot. She's great! Would you like to have Sasha Alexander back? She was dull and a real drain on the show.
