NCIS season 10 is sadly close to wrapping up and soon we'll all be suffering withdrawals during another summer hiatus. But if the recent casting news and spoilers are to be believed, the people behind NCIS are going to send us off with a bang.
Colin Hanks Will Make a "Memorable Finale"
First up, we have news that Dexter star Colin Hanks will be guest-starring in a two-episode arc. TVLine
, reports that Hanks will appear in this season's final two episodes (May 7 and May 14) as Department of Defense Investigator Richard Parsons, a character executive producer Gary Glasberg describes as "Ken Starr, J. Edgar Hoover and an angry pitbull wrapped into one."
Glasberg also added that Hanks "should make it a truly memorable finale."
Anyone else notice a resemblance between Hanks and Sean Murray (who plays Agent McGee)? Well, you're not the only one. Glasberg told TVLine
that will "absolutely" be addressed on camera. "There's a terrific scene in 'Double Blind,' which is the penultimate episode, when McGee and Colin (playing a DoD snoop) meet for the first time. And it actually comes up again in the finale as well," the showrunner said. "We got a big kick out of it around here!"
A Beloved JAG Officer Offers Help
Next up, we have more casting news. TVLine
reports that a beloved JAG officer will be showing up just when the gang at NCIS needs him the most. John M. Jackson will reprise his role of Judge Advocate General A.J. Chegwidden for the season finale. In the episode, a federal witch hunt will be threatening the future of Gibbs' team.
"We needed a lawyer, a really good lawyer, to assist Gibbs and the team in the finale," NCIS executive producer Gary Glasberg said.
Chegwidden, who is now retired from the Navy, will step away from his powerful D.C. law firm to help out the team in the episode. Glasberg called the outing a "nail-biter which will hopefully leave fans stunned all summer long."
NCIS Season 10 Plot Revealed
Here is the brief synopsis:
The international manhunt for Eli David's killer turns into a federal witch hunt against Gibbs and the team, which questions their unconventional methods and threatens their future at the agency.
More on Mike Franks' Return
Finally, we also revealed last week that Muse Watson was returning as Mike Franks
for the season finale . We were one of the first outlets to report on Watson's return and now we've heard from show boss Gary Glasberg himself. Glasberg spoke to TVLine
about the Watson's role in the finale (reportedly titled "Damned if You Do") saying that it will present "a situation where Gibbs has to really question, 'How far is too far? How far can you push the boundaries? How far can the team cross the line?' And in looking at things from a moral stance, in terms of what has happened over the years, things get internalized and we're very fortunate to have the 'conscience' that is Mike Franks there for Gibbs to interact with."
Wow! I don't know about you guys, but these final episodes of NCIS season 10 are looking pretty exciting to me. In fact, they just might make up for having the show off the air for a few months. Then again, with what's sure to be a huge cliffhanger coming our way, something tells me this summer is going to feel longer than ever.
