Tuesday night marks the conclusion of the “NCIS” backdoor pilot for “New Orleans,” and hopefully at some point in the near future we will have some more news on whether or not that gets picked up. But in moving forward beyond that, the story will carry through to another important episode in “Page Not Found” that brings back one of the most interesting guest roles of the whole season: Margo Harshman’s Delilah.
The great thing about this character to us is that despite all that she has been through (which now apparently includes being paralyzed for the rest of her life), Delilah continues to stay a powerful and proactive person. She is not giving up on being an asset to her country or to NCIS, which makes her very important for a mission the team is working on as she returns to work.
In addition to more Delilah on the job, she is also (per the official synopsis at the link here) going to also have a larger story when it comes to her relationship with McGee. Hopefully, this includes in here more on whether or not the two of them can manage to be together long-term. We’d love to see this story play out for a while, and we’d even campaign for a promotion for Harshman to series regular if all parties involved are interested in it. She brings something different out of McGee, and adds a dimension to the show that was not there previously.
There are some important moments coming on this season beyond this episode, and you can read some more about those here. They include plans for an ambitious finale, and also a story that is going to place some of our characters, including Michael Weatherly’s Tony, in an unusual place.
