It’s been a little while now since Tony DiNozzo has had something pretty spectacular to do on “NCIS,” at least ever since we last saw him go back to some of his past in Baltimore. (Before that, it was the first two episodes of the season trying to say goodbye to Ziva.)
But is this changing at some point in the near future? It sure looks like it, based on the comments coming out courtesy of show boss Gary Glasberg. Speaking to TVLine, it does sound like Michael Weatherly’s character is going to have a new woman in his life … but not as a love interest. Instead, we’re talking about a woman that has started to become involved with his father:
“Tony has had a year of real change and growth so far. Ziva said goodbye. Bishop said hello. Tony’s friendship with McGee got stronger and his bond with Gibbs wasn’t weakened by change, it was reinforced. And now, for a special 250th episode, Anthony DiNozzo Sr. (returning guest star Robert Wagner) will be back. And along with a riveting crime to solve, Tony will discover there’s a new mystery woman in his father’s life.”
Typically, the mysteries that Tony is forced to try to solve are those related to murders or other crimes within the military. Trying to figure out who this woman is, and whether or not her intentions with his dad are really the purest, should create another fun sort of dimension for him to play. Anytime that we get a chance to explore the characters beyond the workplace is something that we celebrate.
