NCIS Sneak Peeks: Don't Let the Chaos Fool You

at . Comments

Tonight, NCIS begins a new chapter of sorts with the addition of a new cast member. Emily Wickersham joins the show as a series regular in the role of Ellie Bishop.

So who is the new girl? Two sneak peeks from "Gut Check" give us an idea.

After discovering that the Secretary of the Navy was recently bugged during a confidential briefing, the team is introduced to NSA Analyst Eleanor “Ellie” Bishop.

Reason being? She predicted the security breach in exact detail in a briefing she wrote two years ago. Because that's just what her young, beautiful mind does.

Bishop dreams up threats that don't exist yet. While working on the floor and being endearingly quirky, of course ... and is that a wedding ring on her finger?

Watch the two scenes for your first look(s) at Bishop and comment below:

Are you excited for Emily Wickersham's debut based on the scenes above? How do you think she'll blend in which Gibbs, Tony, Tim and the rest of NCIS?

Tonight's show had an energy to it that we haven't seen for a while. I think Ellie will fit in just fine.


I like her... still miss Cote... life goes on.


Don't like her, too cutesy, the writers are trying too hard.
From the reviews I see that the male viewers are on board.


I think it will be interesting to see how her character develops. By the way, has anyone else noticed that the female agents on Gibbs' team on the show have come from a different agency before NCIS: Kate was in the Secret Service, Ziva in Mossad, and the new girl in the NSA.


I like her...


I can't wait till tonight's episode. The second clip that is so Tony. She seems like a really cool character and she's definitely different which is great.


It's nice to see they're bringing some one diffrent than the last. I grew to like Ziva after Kate and the same with Vance after he came to replace Jenny. Whenever they bring new characters in they seem to bring something diffrent to the table. Ziva will always have a place in NCIS but Cote wanted to leave because she put her personal life first and it isn't right to fault her or anyone else.


She might just out-geek McGee. Looking forward to tonight.


It seems to me she's going to be portrayed as the best agent on the team, a superstar way beyond any of the rest -- and Tony will be a super buffoon. I hope not.


Very excited
