NCIS Season Premiere: A Heavy DiNozzo Episode

at . Comments

Given the mysterious assignment he was handed by the new SecNav at the end of last season, and the NCIS Season 9 spoilers we've read so far, it's hardly a shock that when the CBS hit returns September 20, Tony will be front and center.

“It’s a heavy DiNozzo episode,” says Cote de Pablo (Ziva) to TV Line.

But what does that entail exactly?

Look for the NCIS season premiere to put Tony through the ringer.

“He goes through the mill,” she adds of our favorite special agent, adding that “Watching him try to get in touch with his emotions is a really beautiful thing.”

We couldn't agree more. If grappling with all his emotions gets to be too much for him, Wendy Makenna will return as NCIS psychiatrist Dr. Rachel Cranston.

Makenna appeared last season in "A Man Walks Into a Bar," an episode that saw the team being evaluated, and served as a tribute to Kate, her little sister.

Sarah Jane Morris will also return in the season premiere as E.J.
