NCIS 200th Episode Photos: Mike Franks Sighting!

at . Comments

NCIS returns Tuesday February 7 for a watershed event in show history.

It is, after all, the 200th episode of the CBS procedural, now in its ninth season and the #1 drama on TV. For Leroy Jethro Gibbs (star and executive producer Mark Harmon) it's a time to look back upon his life.

During a routine stop for his morning coffee at his favorite diner, Gibbs unexpectedly finds himself staring down the barrel of a gun, forcing him to question choices he has made in the past and present.

The 200th installment also serves as a "here's to our fans" moment of sorts, with a number of familiar faces returning in the alternate reality to which Gibbs' mind drifts (a la the 1998 movie, Sliding Doors).

Muse Watson (Mike Franks), Ralph Waite (Jackson Gibbs), Joe Spano (Senior FBI Agent T.C. Fornell), Darby Stanchfield (Shannon Gibbs) and Rudolf Martin (Ari Haswari) appearing in the milestone episode.

Check out some photos from "Life Before His Eyes" below ...

Please tell me the name of the actress who plays Ann Gibbs? Mother to Jethro. I would like to know her name and it is not listed.


This show has a great cast but I believe it has survived this long (and much longer I hope) because of the talent of Mark Harmon. He is a wonderful actor. In this episode he believably shows that he is confused by seeing people long gone from his life. Keep more episodes coming.


Could you tell me the name of the character and the actor who appears on this episode and who tried to kill Vance in an earlier episode. I feel that he looks very much like Muse (Mike Franks).


i am a fan and this was a waste of everyone's time. worst episode ever. please dont do it again, ever.


This is going to be the BEST one so far . Especially with the all Star line . Sure would be nice to have Kate and Jenny back too . But for me Mike , Tobias, and Jackson defintely are a must for sure. Thats what family is about . Just waitng for the show to start.


CAN'T WAIT!!! I agree, wish Jenny was
coming back. I always wanted Jenny and Gibbs to get back together, too. She always seemed like the only woman (besides Shannon) who could understand and handle Gibbs. But this episode looks like it will be EPIC!!! Who else wonders if the shooter might be the one ex-wife we haven't met yet?


I can`t wait we are going to get Fornell Franks Ari Jackson Gibbs, and a young Gibbs (Sean Harmon) I also read on another page that a character name Ann Gibbs so am thinkin thats Gibbs mom. I just wish they could have gotten Lauren Holly and Sasha Alexander (Jenny & Kate in the flashack Gibbs will have) besides that it will be a great episode. I heard that Tony & Ziva will meet in diffrent way. I so looking foward for Franks. am glad Fornell is coming hes great.


This is going to be an episoded well worth waiting for~!!! I agree that Jenny and Kaitlyn should be there also.... a 2 parter sounds like a good idea to me! Ari better be getting what is coming to him after all this time! How can you put all this in an hour? As we wait..........


This is going to be a tear-jerker for certain! I can hardly wait! And from a couple od the above comments, I totally agree that Jenny needs to be this one also!And Caitlin Todd also! I am just so looking forward to this particular episode!!!!! You ought to make it a 2 parter just to get everybody into it!


I also would have liked to have seen Jenny in this milestone show. She was an integral part of the show. As far as Ari is concerned, maybe this time Gibbs will shoot him. Let's not forget Caitlin Todd (Sasha Alexander). Not that would be a complete circle.
