Big changes are ahead for Tim McGee (Sean Murray) on the upcoming season of NCIS.

In Tony's (Michael Weatherly) absence, McGee has been promoted to a senior field agent, TVGuide.com has learned. "He has taken over that mantle," NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg tells us. "And with that comes tremendous responsibility."

But the more exciting development comes in McGee's personal life. Based on what we've heard, not only will he pop the question to Delilah (Margo Harshman) in Season 14, but it's extremely likely that a wedding is on the horizon before the end of the season.

In other words, this may be the most romantic season yet for NCIS. Now the only question is: Will Tony return for his friend's big day?
