Home Television NCIS Cliffhanger As Mark Harmon Is Left Bleeding in a Fake Arab...

Don’t get excited. I enjoy “NCIS” reruns as much as the next guy. The CBS colossus will go on forever, like “Bonanza” or “Dallas.” It’s “Mission: Impossible” for the exhausted. People love it, love it, love it. They’ve already spawned “NCIS: New Orleans” and “Los Angeles.” You know they’re working on Miami, or San Francisco, or Peoria next.

Tonight, “NCIS” classic, so to speak, left us with a cliffhanger. That’s if you believe Mark Harmon’s Gibbs is going to die in an Arab market. A little boy shot him twice. Gibbs is down, and there’s a lot of sand and dust. Don’t worry: Mark Harmon will be making “NCIS” shows well into the next century.

And what about Cote de Pablo? She left and starred in “The Dovekeepers” for CBS, which has now been cancelled. She doesn’t have anything else going right now except for a pretty bad looking thriller called “The 33” coming to theatres this fall. My guess is that Ziva makes a guest appearance or two next fall. Let’s see what happens.

  1. “NCIS Cliffhanger As Mark Harmon Is Left Bleeding in a Fake Arab Market” What? Did you expect CBS to fly Mark Harmon to Baghdad and shoot him and leave him bleeding in a real Arab market? I hate to break it to you, Mr. Friedman, but, the entire show, from it’s inception is FICTION. And if you’re worried, don’t be, I bet they didn’t really shoot Mark Harmon, either.

  2. Um … The Dovekeepers wasn’t “cancelled”. It was a two-part mini-series that was always supposed to be a two-part mini-series. It aired. It’s over. And “The 33” isn’t a “thriller” — it’s the story of the 33 Chilean miners who were trapped underground for nearly 2 months in 2010. I’m not a Cote de Pablo fan by any stretch of the imagination, and I’m perfectly happy with Ziva gone from NCIS. But if you’re going to criticize what she’s been working on lately, at least do just … y’know … a touch of research.

  3. Don’t believe for a second that Harmon’s Gibbs is dead. And with him making the interview circuit and GG saying it was yet another Gibbs-centric SF, it was a no-brainer that whatever happened was happening to Gibbs.

    Agreed that the upcoming movie de Pablo is in sounds pathetic. Really hope you’re wrong about Ziva making a guest appearance or two. De Pablo back as ziva would 1) prove that she needs the show far more than the show needs her ad 2) completely ruin the last two GOOD seasons of NCIS for many.
