NCIS season 18 finale photo: The crisis surrounding Ellie Bishop

NCISWith the NCIS season 18 finale coming in a matter of days, there are a lot of different story threads lingering in our mind. The biggest surprise of the bunch, though, is the one tied to Ellie Bishop.

We’ve known for a while that there are a lot of question marks surrounding Gibbs’ future, and there are a number of different reasons for that. He’s not even an active NCIS employee! Yet, there have been all of these little suggestions that there’s something going on with Emily Wickersham’s character. She’s talked about making a trip to Bulgaria, she’s been training in secret with Odette, and then there was that conversation she had with Gibbs in the diner on this past episode.

Now, add the following to the equation: Bishop has been implicated in an NSA link from years ago. Does this mean she is guilty of some sort of crime, or that she was set up? We wonder if this is a story that could eventually lead to her going into hiding — or if she upsets the wrong people, it’s possible that her own life could be in danger. The photo above certainly is putting her into a tough situation.

We haven’t heard anything at present that suggests that Wickersham is leaving the show after this season … but we still can’t help but have that nervous pit in our stomach over all of this. Given that we’ve already lost Sloane this season, we don’t want to see anything happen to one of the show’s few other prominent female characters!
