On September 24, “NCIS” will be back in its all-familiar Tuesday timeslot with an episode that certainly has fans excited to watch: “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.” Its one where we are going to get to see the answers to many questions that you have had since the beginning of the summer, though there will also be some elements of the episode that will be held over to “Past, Present, Future,” which is otherwise known as the episode in which Ziva David makes her departure from the show.
Obviously, CBS knows that they have a major television event on their hands with the end of Cote de Pablo’s time as a series regular, and so, they’re going to wait on releasing any photos of her storyline. Instead, most of the images that they just put out this week for the premiere are ones that really do not mean too much of anything … including the one above featuring Gibbs (Mark Harmon), Abby (Pauley Perrette), and returning guest star Colin Hanks as Parsons.
The story with Hanks is carried over from the end of last season, and we would be surprised to be seeing him stick around very long into this season at all. The main purpose of this premiere is to try and take us from where we were through most of the finale in May to where we were at the end of it with the sniping, and then figuring out what comes after that. While DiNozzo and Ziva’s exploits will be a part of the episode to a certain degree, the meat will be saved for the following week.
