With appearances by Tony DiNozzo's father and Jethro Gibbs' former mother-in-law among others, this season's NCIS has been about the back stories and personal lives of NCIS team members. "We've all had those opportunities on the show to dig more deeply into the characters and I think it's deserving," star Mark Harmon (Gibbs) said at the Paley Center for Media event about the series Monday night. "I think the fans deserve it." On Tuesday's episode (at 8/7c on CBS) the attention will turn to Gibbs when former mother-in-law Joann, played by Gena Rowlands, becomes involved in the team's latest case. "What has been a recurring theme, at least this season, has been the focus on family and back story," said Rocky Carroll (Leon Vance). "That's been a central theme and I think it's going to continue. You're going to see more people out of the private lives of these characters." The episode also marks the return of legal eagle and Gibbs' latest possible love interest, Allison Hart (Rena Sofer). But despite their on-screen chemistry, as well as her scheduled return for several episodes in May, Harmon said fans shouldn't necessarily anticipate a love connection. "I guarantee it's not going where people think its going," Harmon said. "I don't think [Sofer] knows where it's going any more than I do." To Read More Click here .

You NCIS fans must be sick and tired of Rena Sofer news, but from the looks of things she's not going anywhere - at least for the mean time. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Sofer's Mr. Gibbs-calling feisty lawyer character will not only be making a return on Tuesday's episode "Mother's Day" she will be back for "multiple episodes" in May. Is that the sound of groaning? It gets worse. Adds NCIS executive producer Shane Brennan, M. Allison Hart will "set in motion a chain of events that forces Gibbs (Mark Harmon) to make a life-changing decision," a decision which he adds "will impact every member of his team." This bit of information suspiciously sounds connected to the little hints that Brennan gave previously regarding the much-anticipated NCIS finale, where he said elements of which have already been included in past episodes this season. He added then: "The audience has already seen some of the elements - we've already started the finale in a way. You won't see it in every episode, but we'll tease it out. It'll be surprising, and this year it's going to be controversial." Could it be a romantic decision for Gibbs, despite the apparent unpopularity of Sofer's Attorney Hart? NCIS returns Tuesday with an episode where Gibbs' former mother-in-law becomes a witness in a murder investigation. Source Here
So far, speculation regarding the NCIS Season 7 finale this May has been limited to Rena Sofer's likely return, and executive producer Shane Brennan's cryptic statements that the events of the upcoming season-ender have already been set in motion ... somehow. Well, today Entertainment Weekly says Sofer's feisty lawyer character, Allison Hart - who returns in Tuesday's episode, "Mother's Day" - will be back for multiple episodes in May. That's the first concrete confirmation we've read to that effect. As for what it entails? The no-nonsense attorney will Ã¢â¬Åset in motion a chain of events that forces Gibbs (Mark Harmon) to make a life-changing decision,'' Brennan says. This isn't just some run-of-the-mill life-changing decision, either, nor will it impact Gibbs alone. Brennan reveals what he does will impact every member of his team. Source here
Tony. McGee. Playboy centerfolds. These things don't often mix on NCIS, but that's about to change come March 16, when Shanna Moakler guest stars on the hit series. The former Miss USA will be playing the girlfriend of a Navy diver who dies under mysterious circumstances. Shanna is also known for a stint on Dancing with the Stars. That and being married to (and separated from, and back together with, and divorced from, and fighting via MySpace with) Travis Barker of Blink-182 fame. She's cute. In somewhat more important NCIS guest starring news, Rena Sofer will definitely appear in multiple episodes beyond March 2 as no-nonsense lawyer M. Allison Hart. What do you think she and Gibbs have going on? Source Here

There are very few NCIS fans who love Rena Sofer's Attorney Hart character on the CBS show, with most just not liking the way she stood so close to Gibbs (Mark Harmon) in the end of "Masquerade." Entertainment Weekly reports that Hart is set to resurface in the March 2 episode "Mother's Day" which is also when NCIS returns. After that, she'll be back for at least one more episode. Apparently, even she is kept in the dark as to both how long she will be staying and whether or not there will be something more between her character and Gibbs. She's not complaining, though, she says. "Mark doesn't know either," she says. "We talk about it every time we do a scene. We don't know. Personally, I think it's more fun to play the ambiguity. Once you go to bed with someone, it's over. Where do you go from there? There's a part of me that hopes we never know." When NCIS returns, we say hello to Gibbs' former mother-in-law as a witness in a murder investigation. Sofer's hard-nosed attorney character first appeared on "Ignition" doing what she does best: keep Gibbs from talking to her clients. Sofer, 41, has appeared on General Hospital, Melrose Place, Friends, Ghost Whisperer, 24, and Seinfeld. Source Here
Rena Sofer's no-nonsense lawyer character, M. Allison Hart, has proved a thorn in Jethro Gibbs' side - and at the same time a romantic fascination of his - twice already. She resurfaces again in NCIS' March 2 episode (the show is off this week and next) and she'll be back for at least one more after that, according to Entertainment Weekly. As far as where the producers are taking her relationship with Mark Harmon's Gibbs, don't ask Rena. Not that she'd tell you if she did, but even she has no idea, by design. Hart's recurring status lends credence to the theory that her arc with Gibbs is part of the show's big season finale, which producers have teased has already started in a sense. Mark doesn't know either, Sofer says of their relationship. We talk about it every time we do a scene together. We don't know. Personally, I think it's more fun to play the ambiguity. Once you go to bed with someone, it's over. Where do you go from there? Part of me that hopes we never know for that reason. She's alone in that department - fans can't wait to see where it's headed. Interestingly, this isn't Sofer's only controversial romance of the season. She's going on a date with Booth on Bones! Both Gibbs and Booth have good taste. Just saying. Source Here
