Who did Tony see in the photograph in the NCIS finale? Please tell me they're not going to break up the team! — Melanie
ADAM: Executive producer Gary Glasberg gives us a hint. "It will be someone that we recognize," he says, adding we'll get that answer in the season premiere. We'll also get some serious intel on that microchip that E.J. found in her co-worker's arm. New theory: These mysteries are totally connected, right?
