While we are still waiting to see everyone who will return to “NCIS” before the exit of Michael Weatherly, we are glad to add one name officially to the list today: Scottie Thompson.
In a post on her Twitter page, Weatherly’s co-star Emily Wickersham (Bishop) posted a shot that included not just Michael and Scottie, but also a pretty great face from Sean Murray. It’s not entirely clear what Thompson’s Jeanne Benoit will be doing on the show this time, but the last time we saw her earlier this season she had a chance to reconnect with DiNozzo after a series of incidents so many years ago. We are glad to have seen her around this season; it is a great nod to the Tony character’s past, and also to a particularly memorable arc of episodes.
Unfortunately, we do know that it will be quite some time before this episode even airs. After all, the show is not even returning to CBS with another installment until February 9, and there is no confirmation as to when this will air following this. All we can say is that as we get closer and closer to Weatherly’s inevitable exit, we imagine that more and more Tony stories are going to come to light. It feels like this is something that the show has known about for quite some time, and thanks to that they will probably have prepared for it.
Of course, whether or not the farewell is something that gets fans excited or down in the dumps remains to be seen.
