It’s all over for Pauley Perrette at “NCIS.” The original cast member leaves in a two parter beginning May 1st. Over the weekend she wrapped her final episodes and posted farewell photos with all the cast members except for her boss, Mark Harmon. Was Harmon too busy? Did Perrette not want him? Is it a sign? I’ve heard stories from past “NCIS” players about Harmon that indicate he’s not the most sentimental guy on set. (And to think, he started as a second-level character on “St. Elsewhere.”) I do think “NCIS” is going to be quite different without Pauley. Her sense of humor and quirkiness balanced Harmon’s leaden personality. I hope she goes on to something really cool and fun.
