It is McGee who will accompany Gibbs on this action packed premier. Tony never gets to figure in in the really exciting stories anymore. Gibbs is exclusively the big hero and McGee has become his second in command. Tony was demoted years ago when he began to be written as the team's weak, irrelevant link and resident idiot. Tony fans will be lucky to get a one and done for their favorite and I guarantee it won't be action packed.
I don't see much ahead for Tony. It's become the super GIBBS show and giving Tony anything remotely flattering might take the spotlight off of wonder GIBBS and that's a huge no no.
I quite agree that the show is better without Ziva. Her character had become too central and Tony's only reasons to exist seemed to be to prop her and her multitude of dramas up, and of course to provide self humiliating comic relief. I really don't have any hope that Tony will get much of anything again this season. Gary Glasburg gives all the nail biter action stories, emotional stories, and hero moments to GIbbs. I don't think that the writers are actually allowed to make Tony look too good. Weatherly's acting and Tonys' character might turnout to be more compelling than Harmon's Gibbs and that's against the rules.
