At the end of last week’s episode of NCIS, Gibbs (Mark Harmon) took a picture of the team’s target, Harper Dearing (Richard Schiff), and stuck it over the picture of Osama bin Laden that hangs on the Most Wanted wall inside NCIS HQ. The message: Dearing is going down.
But first it’s going to take the team into a high-stakes fight against an incredibly dangerous adversary, says EP Gary Glasberg. “This arc is something that we’ve been talking about for a while,” he says of the terrorist plot. “And I think people are going to be, not only surprised, but really entertained by how it unfolds… Anytime that the team gets to work mode as a cohesive unit, people enjoy that and respond to it.
