After some Tiva on this season of NCIS, Cote de Pablo tells TV Guide that enough of Tiva, the season finale will be about NCIS leader Gibbs (Mark Harmon).

"It's going to have to do with something that he's going to be struggling with at the beginning of the next season."

The good news is, this eradicates speculations that Harmon might not be back next season for the top-rating procedural. The bad news is, this might mean tackling Gibbs' romantic life, something which some NCIS fans would rather left untouched.

Both Allison Hart (Rena Sofer) and Holly Snow (Dina Meyer) will reportedly be in the fray.

Harmon says Snow is "an interesting ally" as she is both "uncomfortable" and "odd" in some ways. As for the hard-nosed Mr. Gibbs-calling attorney, it has been reported previously that Sofer is set to return for multiple episodes in May.

Says NCIS big boss Shane Brennan, Sofer's character will "set in motion a chain of events that forces Gibbs to make a life-changing decision." This decision, he adds, will "impact every member of his team."

But since top of mind would be romantic options for Gibbs, Harmon cautions: "Whatever fans are thinking, they're wrong" because it is "never the obvious" on NCIS.

He adds, "I think it is time for us to see these people away from their job and with their girlfriends or family. It is time to let out some of those nuggets. We've earned them. They come for the procedure but now we have earned the right to break off another piece of the puzzle."
