After a brief break, NCIS returns on Tuesday night with the conclusion of an arc that has gotten very personal to the gang.
In the last string of episodes, we saw terrorist Benham Parsa fingered as the culprit who bombed a government-sponsored black-tie gala that left DOD agent (and NCIS friend) Delilah Fielding paralyzed and many others dead. And though the last new episode ended on a note that indicated NCIS had hit a wall in their investigation, in Tuesday’s episode, teases exec producer Gary Glasberg, we’ll see them band together for one final push to bring Parsa to justice. “It all comes to a head,” he says of the episode, which will reveal a connection between newbie Bishop (Emily Wickersham) and Parsa. “I’m really pleased with that episode. It’s action-packed, exciting, and fun.”
Also done is McGee’s (Sean Murray) struggles with guilt over the circumstances that led to Delilah’s injuries from the bombing, says Glasberg. “I think he’ll kind of come to terms with what it is, and it’s all about being supportive for her and helping her figure out what’s next,” he teases. Ultimately, he adds, it’s about getting the superstar defense expert “back to where she’s DOD Delilah.” But it won’t be easy — as in real life — and that’s why they wanted to tackle it, says Glasberg. “We’re an 8 o’clock television show, but I’d like to be able to tackle some of the complexities of what it means for people who are dating and who really care about each other to suddenly have something like that change in their relationship,” he says.
