Returning to NCIS: Fornell! Diane!

by at . Comments

Leroy Jethro Gibbs' ex-wife, Diane, and her other ex-husband, FBI Agent Tobias Fornell, will both make appearances when the top-rated CBS procedural returns from a one-week hiatus December 11.

In the episode, Gibbs teams up with Fornell on a joint NCIS/FBI investigation after Fornell becomes the target of a shooting, but they face an unexpected twist in the case when Diane gets involved.

Meanwhile, rumors run wild among the group after Diane stays overnight ... at McGee’s.

Should be entertaining to say the least. The upcoming episode's title, "Devil's Trifecta," is a takeoff on last season's "Devil's Triangle," which first introduced us to Melinda McGraw's character Diane.

Gibbs' Ex-Wife Diane

Fornell spoke with Gibbs on the phone, but did not appear, on last night's NCIS episode (see link for TV Fanatic's review). Joe Spano's recurring character appeared on the Season 10 premiere in September.

Excited to see both Tobias and Diane back in two weeks?

Please don't let this be another 'stretch' episode...it will be a stretch finding a way to involve Diane in an NCIS caper...she is a fun character but there are so many issues fans wish would be addressed...and then there is the McGee factor...he will end up being the butt of jokes...and there are so many questions about his character that would be fun to explore...NCIS is such a complete show on its own...the more we see of second string recurring characters the less time for others...where is Kort...what happened to Franks' family once they moved to DC...what about McGee's family...so many threads yet to be followed. Hopefully, many of those issues will be addressed this season. The best show on the planet!

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.

Tony: You know the "Men" in "Men's Room" is more of a rule than a suggestion, probie.
Bishop: Look, you two always get to go off giggling to the urinal together and I always get left out. So we're going to talk and we're going to do it here.
