NCIS Spoilers: A Surprising Return By ...

at . Comments

A familiar face is returning to NCIS in January.

One left for dead the last time we saw her.

Sarah Jane Morris will reprise her role as E.J. Barrett, according to TV Line. E.J., who was gunned down in the Season 9 premiere, only to have her body then go missing, will be back for at least one episode.

E.J. and Tony

“Last we saw E.J. Barrett, she was gunned down and left for dead. Then she disappeared!” executive producer Gary Glasberg tells Matt Webb Mitovich of TV Line. “In January we’ll find out what happened.”

Her return brings "answers to unresolved questions, danger, and intrigue ... Remember where we left off at the beginning of the season? Well, here we go, and we’re thrilled to have Sarah Jane back.”

Morris will appear in January, although it's not clear exactly when.

The Season 9 opener, "Nature of the Beast," which received mixed reviews from fans, was told in reverse, with Tony piecing together the puzzle he'd been tasked with by the Secretary of the Navy.

In it, we learned why E.J. removed the microchip from one of her team members, and why Tony was targeting another, as well as why she disappeared in the first place. What brings her back now?

Moreover, are you excited to see E.J. back or do you have mixed feelings about it? Share your comments on this interesting piece of NCIS casting news and what you predict will happen below ...

I think EJ is okey.. not perfect, but okey. But even if i love all the characters, and i know many are going to maybe be angry about this, but i rather have more about Abby and Tony, than Gibbs and Ziva. Because Ziva´s story have been going on for a long time, according to me, and the same with Gibbs. Tony, McGee and Abby´s stories are just one plot, and then they are gone. Only to be rewritten again but under other scenes. Like when tonys dad´s episodes (Loved his dad!!!) there was no much screentime for Tony? It was mostly Dinozzo sr, flirting with Ziva and talking with Gibbs.. Nooo, I want more Tony (yes, i´m a huge fan of him


GREAT SHOW----------------------------------------


I am a but disappointed that they dropped all of the loose ends from the beginning of the year... what about those bad guys who were really pulling the strings? What threat do they pose and who do they really work for? What about CIA Ray and Kort??? We need resolution or at least a tantalizing story arc!! I hope they begin to address this in the new year. I also do not like E.J. She seems like an overacting poorly written character that does not ring true with the rest of the cast and she needs to go. And she and Tony are terrible together. Bring back Abby Borin...she is a fun foil for Gibbs if nothing else! I too miss Mike Franks, he could ground and control Gibbs like no one else could. He is a big loss to the cast.


I liked the Abby being adopted story.The relationship between her and Gibbs is great.


Not only is the 2nd coolest Female agent coming back aka EJ but Ray is coming back to Save NCIS by taken Ziva away


As we are aware, marketing is all there is regarding TV.
Asa journalist and novelist I have noticed the ratings climb when Muse Watson appears on NCIS.
I believe that Having Muse return as a "Ghost" on the 200th episode would not satisfy those who love the character of "Franks." It would seem that exploring a way to return him, perhaps in the position as "Director" would perhaps add a bit of light heartedness to this character that is missing now.
Muse Watson added flair, memories, and honour to the series. He is quite versitile as expressed in his recent flick, "A Christmas Snow" and subsequent play at Branson with the fine performances of Catherine Mary Stewart, who would also add some fire to NCIS. Her character expressions are without compare as described by Mr. Wong of Facebook to me recently. Surely, NCIS needs the return of Muse Watson as a weekly castmember, enhanced by the terrific expressions of Catherine Mary Stewart. They, along with the other fine castmembers would unboubtedly keep this on top of the ratings. Muse and Catherine Mary have become together icons, sorely needed now on NCIS.


EJ is okay, not my favorite but its funny to see what happens between her and tony! Agreeing with "null" i wish Jeanne would come back! (Arms-dealer daughter) It really made me mad when she accused Tony of murder than ran off to Africa. UHG! Slap some sense into her and bring her back!!!!


KILL HER OFF SHE'S NOT GOOD FOR TONY--------------------------------


Yea I liked EJ good to see her again also would like to see Jeanne again I think Tony and her could become friends and understand what really happen.


I really did not see any chemistry between them! I actaully love the chemistry between Tony and Champlain! It was probably the best normal relationship I have ever seen him in! Right from the start she said I will be there and she was! Really like it! Better listen up GG

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.
