CI-Ray: Returning to NCIS!

at . Comments

This fall, NCIS fans have seen some interesting moments on the Tiva front ... or lack thereof. The "we need some time" bit, Tony’s bucket list, Tony Sr. basically telling Jr. to pick Ziva ... is it leading up to something?

Maybe so, but on January 10, the other man in her life returns.

CIA Agent Ray Cruz (Enrique Murciano) makes an appearance, and according to the show's executive producer, his intentions are clear. Ray "returns to sweep Ziva David off her feet," Gary Glasberg says.

“There are always plenty of sparks between Cote and Enrique, but this time we’re taking things to a whole other level,” he says, adding that in another blast from the past, the infamous ring box surfaces!

Sarah Jane Morris (E.J.) is also coming back to the show in the new year, and Muse Watson (Mike Franks) is just one of several gone-but-not-forgotten faces who appear on the upcoming 200th episode.
