With the “NCIS” season 13 premiere coming up on Tuesday night, of course this is the time when those closely involved with the show start to share a wide array of teasers for what to expect … and for this particular article, much of it is romance-related.
The first thing that we will tell you here is that, per showrunner Gary Glasberg’s comments to The Hollywood Reporter, Margo Harshman is going to be back as Delilah. She and McGee will be living together, and we’re happy to see more of her. We like the Delilah character a lot, and wish that we had more of her on at least a semi-regular basis. Maybe that is going to happen now.
In talking about some of the other characters, it looks like Bishop’s marriage could be facing some hard times thanks to her commitment to the job, and there is a Tony love story coming that could make longtime viewers of the show happy:
“A really significant story is Emily Wickersham’s character, Bishop, and how this job with NCIS is affecting her marriage. That will continue to arc out and really take her on a a bit of a journey, and she’s been doing a beautiful job, and we’re excited about where that’s headed. Down the road, we’ll continue to delve into the love life of Tony DiNozzo, and there might be some surprises for people a little further down the road into the season on that one, especially for our diehard fans.”
We’re trying to be at least somewhat careful on how much we say on the subject of the Tony story right now, mostly because the last thing that we want to do is get people’s hopes up that a certain someone (do we really have to name her?) could be turning back up. What we will say is this: There’s been enough distance that we are probably a little more optimistic than we’ve been in the past.
