NCIS #2

If the producer says to DVR this episode in order to understand it I guess we'd better darn well do it....


‘NCIS’ Celebrates 200th Episode With Cast From the Past

by Paulette Cohn | January 12, 2012 at 10:00 AM | Interviews, NCIS


“NCIS” celebrates its 200th birthday by breaking away from the formula that has made it the No. 1 drama in prime time television and showing viewers in a “It’s a Wonderful Life”-type episode what life could have been like if only…

The episode is called ‘Life Before His Eyes’ and it begins with a pivotal moment for Mark Harmon’s character Leroy Jethro Gibbs in which his life is put in jeopardy. In that split moment, it sounds as if Gibbs’ life flashes by.

“It literally looks back at key moments throughout nine years of ‘NCIS’ where decisions have had to be made and, had people gone one direction instead of another, how the world would have ended up,” says executive producer Gary Glasberg.

This sliding doors episode will bring back familiar faces — some from the very beginning of the series — and some who are dead on the current version of “NCIS” but may not be in an alternate universe.

And it isn’t just the good guys coming back. Some villains may be returning as well, including Ziva’s (Cote de Pablo) half brother Ari Hawari (Rudolf Martin), the man who killed Kate Todd (Sasha Alexander).

And while Glasberg would not confirm the return of either Ari or Kate, he did confirm that Lauren Holly would not be back.

The best hope for someone back from the dead is Muse Watson, who played Mike Franks. “There’s a heart and a soul to Muse Watson that really connects to the Gibbs character,” Glasberg says. “It explains what drives Leroy Jethro Gibbs.”



One bit of the story revealed by Cote de Pablo is that in the “Life Before His Eyes” episode, she never joined NCIS. She says, “The best part of it for me is the possibility that Ziva wasn’t there all these years, so I come back and meet Tony DiNozzo [Michael Weatherly] for the first time in an interrogation scene.”

With so much going on, Glasberg recommends viewers record the episode. “People should watch this episode multiple times because there is so much crossing and appearances that happen. I highly recommend the DVR to be turned on. It is a different episode but I think it is going to satisfy die-hard fans and the newer fans as well.”

In other “NCIS” news, Jamie Lee Curtis will be joining the cast for two episodes. She will be coming into Gibbs’ world from a very unique government perspective and she will spar with him in ways that people aren’t used to.

Also, now that Ziva and Ray (Enrique Murciano) are no longer an item, it gives her and Tony a chance to follow up on that very steamy look that passed between them before Ray returned. But will they? After all, it would break Gibbs’ rule No. 12: Never date a coworker.

“I think they are both going through some moments of realization and decision making on their own. We will have to see how it effects them,” is all that Glasberg would say.

The 200th episode of “NCIS” airs Tuesday, February 7 at 8 p.m. on CBS.

It does look interesting. The previews would have us believe that Gibbs is killed and sees his deceased wife and daughter again. How they'll get out of that one will either have us going clap or..... tongue

Yes, he's already dead....and I don't love seeing Gibbs talking with his dead wife and daughter. I better chill some wine. This looks like it may be a rocky night.

Ah, I see. I liked the way this was done. Got to see somethings I would have liked to have happened and I particularly liked that Gibbs was given something to think about in his wife's response to his wishing he could have sacrificed all his work with NCIS to have had his family by his side. Might have found some peace in that.

So, a very different episode....a gift for the fans. Yep, that's how I see it. two thumbs up

Yeah, they wanted to do something different for the 200th episode and they achieved that very well. Although I'm wondering why a fairly minor shoulder wound would have had Gibbs seeing his life flash....etc.

I got the feeling that all that stuff happened before the bullet even hit him. Maybe something they said to him (like not to hesitate) made him act differently.

I think you're right about that, but it makes it more confusing to grasp the 'concept'.

I think the concept was that Gibbs was conflicted about that boy's father. He saw the parallel's between them both being "good" guys who murdered for revenge. He wasn't about to let the boy's Dad go. But he felt guilty and when he looked into the face of the boy with the gun, he hesitated. He had a sort of death--wish. ..a feeling that he was a fraud and had never accomplished anything.
This It's A Wonderful Life scenario was to show him that no one is perfect but that in the grand scheme of things he had made a lot of positive things happen. He was shown that staying and carrying out his life's work would be the thing that would bring him finally to peace.
So we get Gibbs to stick around.....YAY! clap

I got the "It's Wonderful Life" concept but when Mike Franks walked up and knocked the bullet out of its path, my literalist mind asked , "So does the bullet hit him or not ? Are we outside the physical laws of the Universe now ? How much that follows should I take literally or allegorically ?"

My life is so complicated.... :lol:

Oh, this was an interesting episode where Tony's ex-girl friend is assigned to work with him on a case. The most interesting thing is her child who just has one cute scene warning Tony off of flirting with his mom....but
Spoiler:
isn't it suspicious that the kid looks to be about 10-11 years old and Tony and she broke up 10-11 years ago? I'm wondering if this is not the last we have seen of those two

Could be. But if she wants Tony to admit paternity or at least accuse him of it why would she wait so long ?

Don't think that is what she has in mind. She was forced to be his partner for the week. And she didn't push the boy forward at all. I think they may just be looking for a reason why Tony and Diva aren't going to "get together" anytime soon. I am just speculating that it might be an interesting plot device to have Tony have some episodes that don't revolve around ""women" problems.

‘NCIS’ Executive Producer Promises a ‘Genuine Cliffhanger’ of a Finale

The ninth season of “NCIS
was celebrated with a special 200th episode that revisited major events
in the life and career of Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs’ (Mark Harmon) but with a twist — we had the opportunity to see what would have happened if he had made different choices.

“It was our looking back as a show — the writers, the producers, the
actors — looking back and wanting to touch on specific moments as much
as it was reaching out to the fans and giving them something fun to
watch,” Executive Producer Gary Glasberg told XfinityTV.com when the episode aired.


For diehard fans, it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the
show to resurrect the dead — and for some to give them different
outcomes, including Kate (Sasha Alexander) and the man who murdered her Ari (Rudolf Martin), Gibbs’ mentor Mike Franks (Muse Watson), as well as Gibbs’ late wife Shannon (Darby Stanchfield) and, for the first time, we met Gibbs’ mother (Clare Carey), who turned out to be a redhead, like his ex-wives.

But season nine offered way more than that. In addition to all the
twisty, turn-y, wonderful cases, we really got to see the personal side
of our special agents. Gibbs began dating Dr. Samantha Ryan (Jamie Lee Curtis), Ducky (David McCallum) fell in love with a woman who turned out to be psycho (Cheryl Ladd), we met Tony’s (Michael Weatherly) ex-fiancée Wendy (Perrey Reeves), Ziva (Cote de Pablo) broke up with Ray (Enrique Murciano), and Jimmy Palmer (Brian Dietzen) got engaged.

Preview Tuesday’s Episode of “NCIS”:

We're sorry, but this content is not available to your web browser.
So, before the “NCIS” season finale airs Tuesday, May 15, we checked
back with Glasberg to get his highlights and lowlights — if any — of the
ninth season of TV’s No. 1 drama.

Take us inside your approach to the finale, and what you wanted to accomplish.
This finale is a genuine cliffhanger. In going into the storyline, the
arc that we set up for the end of the season, we wanted to tell a story
of a terrorist act against the Navy. We wanted to set up a genuinely
frightening threat against our military personnel and really leave
people wondering how we are going to pick up at the beginning of season
10. I think and hope that we have accomplished that.

Aren’t you throwing in a wedding also?
Yes. It is a fascinating juxtaposition of storylines. The Palmer wedding
absolutely comes into play and definitely leaves people in an awkward
situation.

Did anything disappoint you about this season? Anything you
wish you could have done, but didn’t have the time, forethought or
resources?

I am tremendously pleased with what we accomplished this season. We
tried some different things. For season nine of a television series, our
ratings have been fantastic. We had some wonderful guests. We did some
really wonderful military stories. I feel like we really touched on a
lot of different arenas and different elements of the characters and I
am very pleased with it.

What should fans look forward to next season? And if you haven’t gotten that far yet…what would your dream season be?
We are starting to put together our stories. I want to focus more on the
Navy and the military stories for us and dig even deeper into who are
characters are and how they interact with each other and as a team. I
know that it is really important to the fans that they see this team
working together. That is important to us, as well, and I want to make
sure that we do that for them.

Maybe a little bit more romance?
As we get deeper into where our characters are and what they want in their personal lives, it is always possible.

What were the high points of the season?
For me, episode 200 was very special. It was a once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity. Working with our cast has just been phenomenal. They really
brought their A-game to season nine. I think we have done some really
strong episodes. We had some really strong guest stars who were
enthusiastic and interested and wanted to come and play with us — from
Jamie Lee Curtis to Robert Wagner to Richard Schiff. It has been great. I
just want to keep it going as long as we can.

Do you have a favorite episode, line, or scene from this season? If so, what?
I honestly don’t. I am so involved in all of them. I just feel that we
really did some terrific work. I can’t single out one more than the
others.

Don’t miss the “NCIS” finale on Tuesday, May 15 at 8/7c on CBS.

So they 'accomplished' that by killing off Ducky ? What does that accomplish other than reducing cast salaries. Rolling Eyes Of course they do have a history of killing off major characters....

As far as the bomb at NCIS HQ, that's more of a routine type of cliffhanger. We can think that someone on the team was killed but know that that is unlikely within the general plot lines of the typical cliffhanger. And with Ducky apparently gone it's even less likely that they would bump off two major characters at once.

Hopefully Ducky survives his heart attack or whatever it was. It was a very peaceful and dream like scene with him on the beach receiving the phone call. I almost expected a flashback to him waking up injured inside the blown up NCIS. But clearly it was a call about needing him back because of the explosion at NCIS. He did say something like "make sure no one touches the bodies until I get there" indicating that were fatalities. Killing off two character seems unlikely.

Yeah, that was weird that he was there so long and not considered a regular. But does that hint that Ducky actually died and now they need someone permanent to take over the autopsy lab ? Hmm.....
