Our family's favorite TV show is NCIS. Now in its fifth season, the agents are better than ever. I started watching it in the middle of the second season and have watched it ever since, and the kids and I have obtained the earlier seasons from Netflix and have enjoyed them immensely.
Next Tuesday's two-hour season finale reportedly involves a death of a main character. We have seen many, many close calls for the agents, but not a death since Kate (Sasha Alexander) exited the show at the close of the second season. Our bet is on Director Jenny Shepard (Lauren Holly) leaving or being murdered because of the mystery surrounding the death of her father. She's coming back on duty as Director of NCIS after some serious accusations were bandied about and she was put on suspension.
Earlier this week I found a TV Guide poll speculating about who is leaving the show, and my vote went along with the 62% who thought it was Jenny leaving. Lauren Holly's career has been resurrected by the show and I think she's looking for greener pastures.
We don't mind if Tim McGee (Sean Murray) leaves, and we don't mind too much if Ziva David (Cote d'Pablo) exits, but it had better NOT be Gibbs (Mark Harmon), Tony (Michael Weatherly) or our all-time favorite NCIS character, Abby (Pauley Perrette). We figure that Ducky (David McCallum) isn't going anywhere since this is his best gig since his "Man from U.N.C.L.E." days. Our bet stays with the Director getting the boot or the bullet. We'll have to see....
While we wait for the big two-hour finale, here's a little something to keep you NCIS fans going. Enjoy!
