It's Talk Like a Pirate Day a few days early on the set of NCIS, at least for one guest actor who is waving a gun in the faces of a handful of hostages aboard a ship that has been commandeered in international waters. Among the captives is one Leroy Jethro Gibbs, taken by surprise while investigating what had looked to be an empty vessel. There's just enough of an echo of Captain Phillips in this scenario that you can picture the pirate in question suddenly declaring, "I'm the special agent now."
Instead, the hijacker is ...
LL Cool J and Chris O'Donnell
LL Cool J may have participated in CBS's salute to the Beatles earlier this year, but he certainly won't be singing "We all live in a yellow submarine" when his Sam and Chris O'Donnell's Callen find themselves trapped in a hostile submersible as NCIS: Los Angeles opens its sixth season. Last May's cliffhanger found the partners taking an...

There won't be any loose ends or jangled nerves at the close of May 13's finale, which honors the late actor Ralph Waite and sends his character, Jackson Gibbs, to his final resting place.

NCIS started its 11th season with a bang Tuesday night — literally. A terror attack on a hotel kills Secretary of the Navy Clay Jarvis (Matt Craven), and may cause Morrow (Alan Dale) to lose his leg. But it quickly becomes clear that the explosion is just a hint of larger things to come. And the group's next target? Ziva David (Cote de Pablo).
Two CBS procedurals will revisit the darkest hours of their characters' lives this fall. In October, Criminal Minds will pay tribute to the murdered wife of Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson). "In our 100th episode five years ago, Hotchner's wife, Haley, was murdered by...
Michael Weatherly, Cote de Pablo
The countdown to the NCIS season finale begins now.
Now that Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and Vance (Rocky Carroll) have given Ziva (Cote de Pablo) permission to pursue her rogue investigation of Ilan Bodner, all of her actions — beginning with a Tony (Michael Weatherly) and Ziva trip to Berlin on Tuesday's episode (8/7c, CBS) —will feed into the season's ultimate conclusion.

"From this point on, all of these episodes connect and they all propel us toward the finale," executive producer Gary Glasberg tells TVGuide.com. "'Berlin' functions as both a significant part of the Bodner story and has a tremendous Tony/Ziva personal story line that goes along with it. It's primarily work-related, but there are little moments that give them an opportunity to connect and hopefully satisfy a lot of our Tiva fans."
But before Tony and Ziva kick off their European jaunt/manhunt, Ziva will meet new Mossad Director Orli Elbaz (Star Trek: The Next Generation alum Marina Sirtis), the woman replacing Ziva's murdered father...
NCIS' season finale is going to be pretty tough on Gibbs. Fortunately, he'll have an old friend to help him through it all.
