No we didn't discuss that. But I recall when she first began that Gibbs had dusted off an old application she had submitted to be on the team - so she'd always wanted to be with them. Don't know why, however.

Technically it's possible to kill her off-screen. CBS had some success killing off Gideon from Criminal Minds. They had a body under a sheet, but that's as far as they went.

Yeah, I was trying to parse that out too. Terrie, I actually don't know who has re-signed for the next season.

Wolfshades

Thanks Lee! As I'm way north and she's in sunny LA, it had to be a phone interview.

I truly have no idea who we're going to lose. My guess is that it won't be Dorneget, as his loss wouldn't classify as quite the shock as "fan favorite" we've been hearing about. I could be wrong - we'll find out in a few weeks. I'm quite curious about this though. The core characters are Gibbs, Ducky, Tony, McGee, Abby and Bishop. Less core: Jimmy and Vance. Remote are Delilah, Ned Dorneget, and Zoe. So....I think it's possible to make an educated guess. (Have I missed anyone?) On another note: Emily was a pure pleasure to interview. She was warm. personable and as Dean mentioned, very professional.

Stay tuned, James. That story about Kate's adopted daughter is going to raise its ugly head very soon.

I agree also with Jim on this: maybe Sansa doesn't have a fully-fledged plan in mind; it's just that she wants to plot out her own deal. Rejecting Brienne may have more to do with reading what Littlefinger wants, and playing to that as much as possible until she makes her move.

Wolfshades

That's my view as well. I rarely give out five stars for an episode - but this one earned them.

That's a fascinating analysis, Liz. Your theory makes a lot of sense too. I can't speak for other guys but I like Bishop just because of who she is. If I were Gibbs I'd put her through a boot camp though - there can't be anything worse than having a team member who through inexperience or timidity won't be able to have your back when there's danger afoot. Boot camp would toughen her up without changing her character all that much.

I'd really like to know more about why you've concluded that she can't play the role. Having taken many acting classes and having played a number of roles myself, I came to the opposite conclusion to you: I think she's a fine actress and plays the part well. I've never yet noticed that she's "acting" the part instead of inhabiting it, for one thing. Actors act on what's on the page and play it according to the director. So if the role is wrong, I don't see the blame being placed at Emily's feet. P.S. I also disagree that the role is wrong.
