NCIS to Explore Love ... in an Elevator?

It was no accident that fan favorites Tony and Ziva ended up in an elevator at the tail end of NCIS Season 9 ... which makes sense, considering that most people take the stairs during an evacuation. Where does that leave them when we pick up next fall, in the aftermath of the explosion that destroyed the agency's headquarters? Show-runner Gary Glasberg weighed in on that with TV Guide . "We'll pick up with them in that elevator and, with the situation that they're in, there will be some conversations," he says. "Hopefully we'll scratch our way a little bit deeper into the relationship." How's that for ambiguity? Read into it however you like. Time will tell if it serves as an actual turning point for the "couple," but either way, those are guaranteed to be must-watch scenes. Read More...

Excerpts from Glasberg's chat with EW below:

'NCIS' Season 9 finale cliffhanger: Where will the show go next year?

Pretty much everything is up in the air after the final moments of the "NCIS" season finale -- and for those following the off-screen business of the show, there's an extra bit of suspense too.Tuesday's (May 15) finale ended with Harper Dearing (Richard Schiff) setting off a car bomb outside the NCIS headquarters -- and even though the building was under an evacuation order, nearly every member of the team was still inside. The one who wasn't, Ducky (David McCallum), collapsed on the beach after hearing the news, presumably from a heart attack.It was a big ending to a strong three-part arc with a pretty unconventional villain: Schiff's Dearing is not a terrorist but the father of a dead sailor who blames the Navy for his son's death and is taking out on Gibbs and anyone else who might get in the way of his twisted quest for justice.Now, about that off-screen stuff: While McCallum...
