NCIS Season 9 Spoilers, Storylines, 200th Episode Secrets & More!

at . Comments

With NCIS Season 9 just around the corner, the show is prepping for its 200th episode, which is set to air in early 2012, along with other major developments.

Suffice it to say, the brain trust is pulling out all the stops for the coming season and milestone event. Get ready for surprising stories and faces, new and old!

Executive producer Gary Glasberg promises the following to TV Guide:

In Gibbs' Basement
  • A spring wedding for Palmer and Breena.
  • Tony's father and Gibbs' father will return.
  • A Ducky-centric episode introducing a new love interest.
  • A two-part November sweeps episode taking Gibbs overseas.
  • Abby's brother. "The story is so lovely and unexpected," says Glasberg, promising that this will change Abby's whole perception of her past. "There is a big, stunning twist," adds Pauley Perrette of the Abby episode.
  • For that 200th episode, "a unique, unexpected story to help us look back on everything prior." In other words, expect to see Gibbs' slain wife Shannon and daughter Kelly, plus Mike Franks, appear in this mega-storyline somehow.

How do you think the producers will pull that off? Which of the above stories are you most excited for? Sound off on these and other Season 9 spoilers below!

Agree with you on many points Darlene. Ever since they wrote Ziva's betrayal and rescue in Aliyah and Truth or Consequences, it seems like they've been trying to repair her by ramping up her skills to cartoon caricature abilities (stupid writing like in Jack Knife, where she stood firm as an out of control truck careened toward her - not brave and cool, just ridiculous) or they turn her in to a victim, with all these overly tragic secrets and soapish dramas. The character has lost all its fun. They've also dumbed Tony down in order to highlight her desirability and superiority, and shoved a daddy Gibbs/Ziva relationship, again I think to show us how important she is since Gibbs now seems to favor her. They did her character a disservice in the Aliyah arc what with the lies, violence toward Tony, and disloyalty. Still - it's time to move on with the character. What's done is done. No more tragic/super Ziva, dumb Tony, or daddy Gibbs. Back to DPB's characters please. It would be a great improvement.


I agree that Ziva had a lot of screen time last season that seemed to go nowhere. Seems like ever since they rescued her they haven't been able to write a decent script for her based on the original Ziva character - tough, confident, yet somewhat vunerable. Hoping that she gets better scripts and there is more McGee and Abbey centric episodes. I still love the Tiva concept but doubt that it will every happen. I think they should do ala the end of 'Alias'...have them get married move away to some remote place and call them out whenever a super tough assignment comes along.


I think it would be cool for the 200th episode to reveal how Gibbs gets his completed boats out of the basement.


Ik a lot of the episodes are gibbs related but I would really like to see an episode flashing back before gibbs wife and daughter were killed. I agree with Michael i would also like to see how the team started out together.


We certainly love Robert Wagner as Denosso's dad. Considering the Sr life style and acquaintences always travelling. Could he also be some kind of undercover goverment agent. It certainly could fit.


on the 200 epidsone, it would be hard ,but not impossible to add kate todd, and mike franks back . they were great characters and are missed.


Ziva needs motherly love and there needs to be some actin with tiva


They need to get a little more realistic as far as having a tactical unit backup when they go to raid different places. Make the tactical cmdr a M/C friend of Gibbs. Have them co-working with other NCIS teams and different units within NCIS. Maybe go back to their roots with a full investigation with JAG cast.

My only hope for the new season? IT AIN'T BROKE--QUIT TRYING TO FIX IT!!!!!


I would like to see flashback off Kate Todd with Gibbs and the team!!!And i think that we'll see Jenny Shapard too...I can't wait!!!

Tony: I was just wondering. Thanks.

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.
