NCIS fans don't have to worry about saying farewell to any other members of the team anytime soon...
Tuesday's episode of NCIS finds the team attempting to track down a stolen drone, with all roads leading back to the terrorist Parsa. And — surprise! — turns out new wunderkind Ellie Bishop (Emily Wickersham) wrote an analysis on the subject a few years ago that the group can use as a reference.
But Tony (Michael Weatherly) has his own ideas about where to turn for some extra knowledge: the Terminator movies.
