NCIS Season Finale Promo: Will Gibbs Go Down?

at . Comments

Next week, on the Season 10 finale of NCIS, loyalty will be on trial.

The hunt for Eli David and Jackie Vance's killer turns into a witch hunt against Gibbs and the team, whose unconventional methods may threaten their entire future at the agency they've given so much too.

If DOD investigator Richard Parsons (Colin Hanks) has his way, Leroy Jethro Gibbs' time at NCIS may come to an end. But we all know Gibbs, and know he does not intend to go down without a fight.

His late mentor Mike Franks (Muse Watson) even returns to guide him.

As we discussed in our NCIS review, the writers, through Parsons' complex "Evil McGee" character, played fans like a tune last night, with Ziva, Vance and ultimately Gibbs in the proverbial crosshairs.

Next Tuesday, we'll see how it plays out, as the family aspect of the team and the show will be put to the ultimate test in the face of this unfamiliar and formidable foe. How do you think it will play out?

I'm thinking this won't all be resolved in the finale and will go over into Season Eleven. I can see the verdict being read: "We find the Defendent,Leroy Jethro Gibbs..." phoof! That would be cruel.


Just thinking about the different articles/interviews I have read with GG and any kind of spoilers he has mentioned, and trying to fit it all together. Also, part of me is most excited to find out what Gibbs has been doing in that basement. There are some major issues I hope they address in the finale or at least touch upon. Also, for once I think I would like for them to surprise us in a good way at the end of the finale. Is that too much to ask? I know, this is NCIS and the answer is yes.


We all know how it's going to end don't we, so can't see why the writers are going down this road for the final episode of the season, are they running out of ideas, it's getting so predictable its either going to be super man Gibbs or wonder woman Ziva who they are going to focus on in the final episode, why do they bother, why can't we have a normal episode to end the season with.


I am betting there will be a twist with this witch hunt. There has to be if Gibbs is to 'get off' and resume his place at NCIS. In real life he wouldn't and would end up fired and in jail. Me thinks they maybe setting him up some how with something perhaps, but they won't win with (Jag's) Admiral Chegwiggin in their face. If Hernandez gets brought up he'll be hard pressed to make an excuse for Gibbs actions. It may have been the wrong way to go about it even if it were for the right cause. Ziva (Cote should be staying) has caused a lot of problems herself, but no more than Gibbs has done really. I think this may spill over for an episode or two into season 11.


The entire cast except Cote are signed for next season - and rumor has it she's expected to sign... but, that could always change.


NCIS is one of the best t.v. shows I have seen. I love the reruns, too, and look forward to spending time with the "family" watching the episodes. Losing Mike Franks was sad but having his memory provide important reminders, wisdom, etc. works because that is what mentors do for all of us. Kate was good, Ziva is better.The best episodes are the ones that keep closest to reality or plausibility and do not stretch too far into the impossible. Life is stranger than fiction and therefore, should provide writers with years of material.


What are you talking about? He was excellent.


As a viewer from episode one year one, I have to say that the expectation will be that Gibbs and team will survive as they always seem to do. I am tired of the "get Gibbs" story lines - I think this about the third. I'd hate to think the writing is getting tired. Also time for Tony to give up the Ziva fixarion - a previous contributer has pointed out correctly I believe that the writers have made it clear she has no respect for him at all. Given the relationship created over the years how can it be otherwise. She stiffs him again by an affair in Isreal even though Tony told her (in Hebrew no less) that she had people behind her here. Are the writers building up for the Ziva character to go "bye-bye?" Or maybe it will be Tony?
Who knows but I well remember the shock of all when Kate got popped. If they stay I really want an end to the TIVA manipulation.
I understand that Mark Harmon has been resigned so I guess he will escape this latest assault. Can't quite imagine a new sean with Gibbs in the pen


Its time to stop going after team members and concentrate on dirt bags. Gibbs killed a drug dealer for killing his wife and child and most of us would have done the same. That was a long time ago. That was part l f our war on drugs so it was a casualty of war. Ziva should stay and Gibbs needs his Army Co girlfriend back!


Bend the rules, bend the rules.. same old plot point they use in virtually all aspects of a season finale for NCIS - just in different situations. It depends on how GG is feeling it seems. Jerking us around all season with TIVA is becoming down right abusive. Look - in or out writers with their relationship..choose. If in, I am in - if out, then it may just be time to make a sea change with some cast members --We know how this goes..Gibbs takes the fall, gets a lecture, everyone runs around in secret and next season they are back -- While I am nervous about Ziva (Cote) most of all not returning..the rest of the cast I am not worried about, I suppose I am prepared

NCIS Season 10 Episode 24 Quotes

Morrow: There's a connection between the death of that Navy Seal and what's happening with your team.
Vance: What kind of connection?
Morrow: The murder of Eli David opened a political can of worms that was much bigger than anyone expected.
Vance: Eli and Arash Kazmi wanted to forget a peace. But Bodnar killing them opened the door.
Morrow: Homeland and the CIA wait for chances like this, to stir the pot. Distract governments so that all sorts of recon can happen. The CIA needed Iran to believe Mossad was responsible.
Vance: Are you telling me that Bodnar didn't kill Kazmi?
Morrow: I'm telling you we did it, Leon. The CIA took out Kazmi that night so that Bodnar would end up being the fall guy. Iran and Israel could duke it out while we focused on the real threat. We're all so damned worried about Iran and North Korea when the real threat is here, on home soil.
Vance: It's a shell game isn't it? Keep people distracted.
Morrow: Leon you see why I wanted you to keep your distance?

Vance: Tom Morrow may have a solve. We pull it off this could all go away.
Gibbs: For all of us?
Vance: Clean slate.
Gibbs: What's the catch?
Vance: It might kill you.
Gibbs: So could a bag of clams.
Vance: [laughs] We sure picked one hell of a career didn't we Gibbs?
Gibbs: Got to make a living Leon.
