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.”

please kill off Jamie Lee the Activia Queen and save the Duck. Seriously Dr. Yucky can't replace Dr. Ducky ;-)


Please DO NOT TAKE DUCKY OFF NCIS!!!! I have follow him for meany years starting with man from UNCLE. He already got screw once when Charlas Bronson took his REAL WIFE FROM HIM. Ducky is the CROWN JEWL OF THE CAST. PLEASE KEEP THIS CLASS OF HIS CARTURE IN THE SERIES!!!!!! Stephen Spry


No, no, no! Not Dr. Mallard!! Ducky is...well, Ducky. No one could ever take his place.


Ncis will not be the same without Ducky..please keep him in the show.


If Ducky dies I will never watch this show again.


Come on please don't kill off Ducky, or matter of fact don't kill anyone off!


I agree with others with regards to Ducky and the base team.. Gibbs, Ziva, Tony, Abby, Vance, Palmer. This is one of the view TV shows I even watch. I watch because the chemistry between them work very well. Please stop changing what works. Also if you are trying to write someone out of a show, why do they have to die. Why can't they evolve to something better in life. If the core team is not there next season, I am not sure I will watch it. I have watch them for 7 years. Is there not hope for something better? We have enough drama without good endings on the new every day. Very sad….


I remember Ducky when he was in The Man from UNCLE years ago. He must be 70 years old. Maybe he wants to retire. I would rather have him killed off than to try to replace David McCallum. That cannot be done.


Ducky is key to the series. The show can't be even close to as good
without his character.Please keep Ducky and if anything reconsider the
Jamie Lee Curtis roll.Whatever happened to the redhead in the convertible
that used to pick up Gibbs?


I agree with everyone else - PLEASE DON'T KILL OFF DUCKY! He's Such a lovable and intelligent character! I really love the entire cast especially Gibbs, Tony and McGee, who looks so much better physically this year. I also agree that while Jamie Lee Curtis is a wonderful actress - she's not right for Gibbs. There's just no chemistry!

McGee: All right. Well you should probably know that Abby and I used to date?
Bishop: Ew. Like, each other?
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: Wait - isn't that a violation of rule 12, never date a....
McGee: It was a long time ago. After we'd broken up, one night I went to her lab. Found a scribbled piece paper; a list. Potential boyfriends had to fulfill certain conditions by a pre-arranged date or else, goodbye.
Bishop: Such as.
McGee: Things started off relatively normal: opening the door for her, flowers, putting the seat down. Then around number 8, it gets uh...
Bishop: What?
McGee: Does she know you have these?
Bishop: Does she know you have these?
McGee: Yeah she wasn't happy when she found out.
Bishop: These are all very specific.
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: These ideas apply to you?
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.
