There may not be a more-anticipated guest star on “NCIS” right now outside of Gibbs’ second ex-wife, and one of the biggest reasons for that is simply just how much time the show has spent talking about this in some form. It started all the way back in the summer with executive producer Gary Glasberg discussing the role; even the buildup for Bishop’s husband Jake has already subsided.
We learned recently that Jeri Ryan, best known from the “Star Trek” universe, is going to be playing this part, and speaking of Bishop, Emily Wickersham said the following to TVLine about what you can expect from this particular part:
“The fans are in store for some goodies … We just finished shooting that episode, and it’s a big deal for the team. And it’ll be the same for the fans, a huge deal. It’ll be an exciting one, for sure.”
In other words, this should be a really fun episode. We do hope that it is, and we also hope that it shows off the lighter side of Gibbs. He has never exactly been the comic relief for the show, but we feel like the story could benefit more from getting every side of his personality. It’s been quite a long time since we’ve really had that.
Let’s just hope that you are fine with waiting for a little while, given that this is not an “NCIS” episode that will be coming on the air for a little while.
