NCIS Finale Teaser: Ducky to Play Key Role?

at . Comments

With NCIS officially renewed for next fall, talk has turned to how the current season will end. Long story short: Get ready for an episode featuringa major cliffhanger and binding together the lives of multiple characters.

Would you expect anything else from NCIS?

We know that Ziva's relationship with her mentor and friend will be explored this spring and factor heavily into the finale, which is being painted as a character-centric puzzle in which various pieces come together.

How will the other characters fit in?

Gibbs and Duck

With Palmer's wedding on the horizon, it looks as though Ducky may end up in a compromising situation, as well, based on recent comments from executive producer and show-runner Gary Glasberg.

Glasberg is quoted in EW as saying:

“Ducky’s going to have his hands full. We’ve got a situation where there will be injured and bodies and he’ll have a lot on his plate. That combined with Palmer’s wedding ... there’s a lot going on."

"Ducky is an integral part of this team and we’ve figured out a fun story for him. I’m excited to see how David McCallum embraces it and how the whole team participates in it. I view suspense and edge-of-your-seat as fun.”

OMG!!! Please don't take Ducky out of the show. The show would be ruined. It would not be the same without Ducky. Plus that would just piss me off. I'll be waiting for the new season. PLEASE save him.


Please dont kill Ducky,


Ducky cannot be killed off. PERIOD This is the only show that I will not miss a seeing every week. You've killed off too many caracters that were really good in this show. This doesn't happen in real life. We get caught up in good dramas like this and it becomes part of our lives.
My brother stopped watching the show when you killed Kate (Personally I like Ziva better).
If Ducky or any of the main team dies again, you will lose one of your biggest fans...ME.


Hopefully he is in good health in real life and Mr. Palmer is going to find him!


I cried when Ducky reacted to the news then fell over from a heart attack. It was hard to watch.


I watched the last show of the season. Ducky feel at the beach from a heart attack and it looked like he died. His eyes were wide open. OMG you can't kill Ducky. He is as much part of the program as any other member of the cast. I really like Jamie in the show so kill off Palmer or Vance. I have watched this show for years. Removing one member you might as well end the show completely.


Please do not kill any of the crew. Especially Ducky. I have watched the show since Katelen was on the show.. I am like the rest of the majority. Get rid of Jamie or Vance.


please let them all be ok... dont kill ducky, please... take away vance is ok....


Please leave them all alive and well. I've been in love with David McCallum ever-since he was an agent in "Man from Uncle". Was that the Name?
Anyway-Duckie is as necessary to the Team as Abby, and Tony, Ziva, McGee, Jethro and of course Palmer. And i think mr Vance is a great actor but i think the character could be more consistent rather than warm one show and than colder than one of your cadavers, or meaner than a junkyard dog. Sheesh!! he gives me whiplash
But all in all please don't change the gang, your doing a great job. This is the only weekly TV show I watch regularly.


OMG! Do not kill off Ducky. He is magnificent. I know David McCallum is getting older, maybe wants a break, but NCIS without Ducky, unthinkable. Allow Ducky to take a sebatacle or something, spend time with his family, etc. Bring him back, bring him back. We love you David M.

Tony: One other question, I know you're an expert in English history. And I was just wondering, have you ever heard of Archibald Drummond, the 17th Earl of Trent?
Ducky: The Earl of Trent. No, I can't say I have. Why?
Tony: I was just wondering. Thanks.
