‘NCIS’ season 12, episode 17 preview: Michael Weatherly, Robert Wagner team up again

NCIS -You may have heard in some other reports that Robert Wagner is poised to reprise his role as Anthony DiNozzo Sr. on an upcoming episode of “NCIS.” Just in case you have not heard such reports, you’re at least hearing them right now! The elder Tony will be returning to the series for its next new episode airing on March 10, and this one is entitled “The Artful Dodger.”

Just in case you were wondering why he is turning up, the synopsis below makes it clear that he has some insight into the world of art, which will be helpful for both the younger Tony (Michael Weatherly) and the rest of the team:

“Evidence in an NCIS murder case reveals a rare painting on loan had been swapped for a fake, prompting DiNozzo, Sr. to share his knowledge and contacts of the black market art world with the team.”

For those of you who are bummed out about there being no new episode of the show anytime soon, just remember here that this is hardly something that is new for the show. It always tends to air new episodes throughout February, and then take a week or two off in March. This is just the natural ebb and flow of the TV season, but given that there are still eight episodes left this season, hopefully there will be some other great things to come.

We’ll have further news as it comes up, so stay tuned!
