Anytime that you have a milestone episode of a show like “NCIS,” you have a certain expectation (and understandably so) that you are going to watch an episode completely deliver on a variety of different things. This includes giving you a crazy, twisted story that is a little nostalgic, a little surprising, and a little something more in general from what you tend to see.
Given that “NCIS” still has a little bit of time before this episode is filmed, it’s clear that some folks behind the scenes are still thinking about what they want to do. Specifically, showrunner Gary Glasberg had the following to say to TVLine when talking about what the process of planning this out has been like:
“We’re starting to knock some ideas around. It’s an episode that I think we’re going to put some military and Navy attachment to, that may have to do with a veterans scenario that we’ve been intrigued by, is really heartfelt and could be something that Gibbs connects with … We’ll also probably bring on a bunch of surprise guest stars, as well.”
One thing that will be especially fun to potentially see here is whether or not Glasberg and company really mean it when it comes to the “surprise” of it all. If you can find a way to bring in a wide array of people who we don’t see coming without announcing them in advance, we’ll give the a show lot of credit. It’s a pretty bold move to do something like this in the modern age where you like to hype up everything in the present.
