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.

NCIS Quotes

Palmer: I take it you heard?
Gibbs: Mmm hmm.
Palmer: Yeah, she saw the baby and just....I guess she felt the same way we felt when we first saw him. Can't fault her for that, right?
Gibbs: You should go home.
Palmer: I will. Yeah Breena and I, we just wanted to get all this stuff out of the house. You know, we wanted to give it back as soon as possible.
Gibbs: We.
Palmer: Me. She's hurting too, but she is so much stronger. She's ready to try again. And me - I feel like I can't breathe. I never felt this bad in my life, Gibbs.
Gibbs: Well, just wait until it's 3:00 in the morning, and your kid's running 104. You're just getting started.
Palmer: That's the point. I'm not starting, you know? Maybe I never will.
Gibbs: Well then fight for it, Palmer! That's what you do. You fight for your family. And sometimes, you fight like hell just to have one.
Palmer: You want me to fight, I feel like I just went ten rounds with Joe Louis.
Gibbs: Do you want to be a dad, Palmer? Because right now, this is being a dad.
Palmer: Maybe I'm not ready.
Gibbs: You wouldn't feel the way you feel, right now, if you weren't ready.

I am an NCIS special agent. My duty is to serve and protect the United States, and our Navy and Marine Corps across global boundaries. I recognize my badge as a symbol of authority and public trust.
