NCIS Planning Tony-Centric, Flashback-Driven Episode

at . Comments

We just saw him act serious for the first time ever in "False Witness." Now get ready to once again see NCIS' Tony DiNozzo as you've never seen him before.

Before he worked at the agency, that is.

Executive producer Shane Brennan says a spring "origin episode" will delve into young DiNozzo’s life before he became an NCIS agent and one-half of Tiva.

Obsession By Tony

Michael Weatherly has been terrific this season as Tony.

TV's #1 drama already flashed back once this fall, offering a memorable two-part installment (see Parts I and II) centered on younger Vance and Eli David.

“The episode will reveal much about DiNozzo’s past as a Baltimore cop,” he says. “And yes, we’ll hear the first words exchanged between DiNozzo and Gibbs."

"It’s a memorable first meeting.”

Any guesses on what those words might be? Are you looking forward to seeing young Tony, or would you prefer an "origin" episode about another character?

NCIS Quotes

I'm more of a Super-Mario guy, myself.

Captain Wescott

Vance: You're here on administrative duty. With DiNozzo away, I figure McGee and Bishop would appreciate your support. In the office, not in the field.
Gibbs: Look. Leon I'm not going try and sit here and tell you I'm 100%...but chaining me to a desk?
Vance: You can take it, or go home.
