NCIS boss hints at Gibbs storyline for season 19
"There's some cleanup work we have to do."NCIS left us fearing for Mark Harmon's Gibbs in the season 18 finale last May and as season 19 gears up for its premiere, we are starting to get some hints about the character's fate.
After wondering for several months how Leroy Jethro Gibbs would sayas the Special Agent in Charge of our favorite team of NCIS investigators, this week’s episode of the long-running series finally revealed the answer. And, while that viewers will see the character again ( ), the days after Mark Harmon’s last episode as NCIS lead have still been filled with lots of emotional responses from fans and those who’ve worked with him. Now, Jamie Lee Curtis, who had a guest spot on the show, has opened up about working on the show and Harmon’s exit as Gibbs.
NCIS season 19: Director Vance hints Gibbs' permanent return in explosive season premiere
NCIS has returned from its summer break with a thrilling new season and the search for Gibbs' elusive serial killer will continue next week.Gibbs could eventually return to the NCIS at some point in the popular crime drama's new season.
If you’ve only been watching NCIS for a few years (or even anytime after 2012), you might not realize that Jamie Lee Curtisguest starred on the show during Season 9. Her character, the Pentagon's Psy Ops division director, Dr. Samantha Ryan, crosses paths with Gibbs and his team on a case, and does not make things easy for them. But, upon hearing about Mark Harmon’s last episode as the NCIS lead, Curtis took to to talk about her time on the series, and his big goodbye. Take a look!
Awww! Sweet, right? As Curtis noted in her post, she appeared in five episodes of NCIS, and if you read through all of her comments, you were probably able to put together that Samantha and Leroy Jethro eventually got past their strained working relationship. By the end of her first episode, after her having literally planted listening devices in Gibbs’ basement and him retaliating by showing up outside of her son’s school, which was a classified location, it’s clear that the two have mended fences and will begin a romance.
NCIS Season 19: Mark Harmon officially leaves the series in episode 4
and it is the end for Gibbs. After more than 18 seasons on the antenna, Mark Harmon officially hangs up his cap: Episode 4 of the 19 NCIS season, broadcast on Monday, October 11 in the United States on CBS, marked the last appearance of the actor 'screen. Here's how the star left the series, currently broadcast every Friday on M6. Attention, spoilers.
While that relationship between the two didn’t last long (she and her son had to flee from her ex once he was released from prison), it’s pretty clear that Curtis truly enjoyed her time working with her friend and everyone else on NCIS. With everything she’s done during her long career (which also includes movies like Trading Places and A Fish Called Wanda, and TV shows like Scream Queens and New Girl), she still considers her five episode stint to be “one of the unexpected delights of my varied career,” and I’m sure that Harmon loves to hear it.
NCIS fans, as you might imagine, are plenty sad about Mark Harmon leaving the show as a regular presence, but, they do also seem toand the fact that he was likely ready to do something else with his time for a while. Also, Harmon is still an executive producer, so it’s not impossible that we could see Gibbs come back to consult in upcoming seasons. Wouldn’t it be nice if we see that somehow brought him back to Samantha? I bet Jamie Lee Curtis wouldn’t mind that, at all.
