Given that “NCIS” is only a matter of a few days away from returning to the air Tuesday night, why not revel in some of the latest news about it?
When it comes to Tony, it’s pretty clear that the man has been through a lot this year. He’s lost Ziva, and while they did have that moment together in “Past, Present, and Future,” it was certainly not what he wanted or not enough to make him happy. (We’ve already heard that most of the fans have felt the same way.) Since that time, he has worked to try to find his inner zen and happiness again, and has at least briefly referenced trying to push his mind forward and into dating.
Well, it seems like he may now have a new woman in his life … but with someone already dating his dad, of all people. Speaking to TV Guide, showrunner Gary Glasberg confirms that when Robert Wagner returns as the elder DiNozzo in the upcoming 250th episode, he will be bringing with him a woman that Tony could take an interest in, but not in a typical manner:
“This woman could potentially be Tony’s new stepmom, and a big part of the story is her age and the awkwardness that brings to Tony. Prior to meeting her, Tony tries to find out as much as he can about who she is.”
On a different note, Benham Parsa will be back very soon for the start of a three-episode arc, and will inflict some sort of damage on a major character. While Glasberg did not name names, but he did tease to the publication that whatever happens here will have significant and pretty long-lasting consequences:
“This event will impact this person for his or her future and prove devastating to the team for the remainder of our season.”
