Oh no really??? I really hope its not either Abby, Mcgee, DiNozzo or Gibbs. Though I could see DiNozzi maybe leaving since he had been offered his own team once and could be written off by going some where else. I hope the show recovers and gains a even better character after one leaves, after Kate left the show got lucky with adding Cote de Pablo, who meshes well with the rest.

I hope it's not Ducky along with the ones aorta321 mentioned.

Oh I really hope it's not Tony leaving. Or Gibbs! They are my fave characters and I don't think I'd still watch without them.

Watch episode 12 - Stakeout. There is a clue there as to who might be going. The clue centres around some tests that Ducky is running on 'someone'...

i checked out the ausselio report about it.... and i saw the comments after. It made me slightly mad to see how many people want Director Shepherd to leave... I actually like her and feel alone in this. I also can't help but think that maybe it will be Gibbs to leave. I really can't see anyone else making that big of an impact on the show if it isn't him... unless of course it is someone who he ha been dating secretly and is major to him... or abby being his favorite and all... and he goes on a rampage to try and get them back. Seriously, he is the one who has cause the biggest noise on the show and to me is the only one plausible at the moment. Not that it wouldn't make me sad to see him go, because it would, very much so.
and if it really gives us an idea in stakeout... then it looks more like the director, unless gibbs finds out and decides to defend Jenny.
all assumptions that are driving me up the 'hall', as Ziva would say.

"Anyone but Gibbs, anyone but Gibbs" I'll miss whoever goes an awful lot (especially Abby or Ducky) but I'm sure they would find someone else great (like happened with Kate and Ziva). Gibbs is just irreplaceable though.

I doubt it is Tony as he was quoted in an interview whilst in Australia saying that he had no plans to leave the show.

I think it might be Jenny. Along with the comment from Ducky about running tests, last week Jethro was concerned about how Jenny ( the director) was looking and if anything was wrong healthwise. The rest of the crew work so well off of each other it is hard to imagine anyone else coming on the show. Though we did get lucky with Ziva!!!

They can't take out Gibbs as they already tried that and I seriously doubt it'll be Tony or Abby. Everyone likes them too much. I hope it isn't ducky either.

I've got a really bad gut feeling that it's going to be Abby. If it is i will never ever, ever watch the show again... EVER!!! (Same if it's McGee)(Or Tony)(Or Gibbs.)(But Abby is the only one i have the feeling about)(If she's killed, i will die!!!)

Apr 27, 2008 4:46AM EDT

OH! And i recon if Jenny is forced to go (And i hope not cause is nice that there are so many strong women on the show, and i really like the character) then Gibbs might as well... if you think about their relationship... I hope it's Ziva, i have never forgiven her for taking dear Kate's place... nor will i ever

The director (Jenny) is not really as pivotal a character as any of the others and as such should she be the one that leaves it would have the least effect on the show as a whole.

i think it will be either gibbs, ducky, dinozzo, or abby beacuse all of those would come out of left field and really affect the show since they have all been there since the very beginning. also, i could one of the actors wanting out since they have been there for five seasons already. they have already killed off the "kate" character on gibbs team once so to kill off ziva would be out of left field but still a bit overkill. i really want jenny to go but i doubt she will since that is what everyone wants and the way her storyline is this season it would not be that strange if she left for some reason. whoever it is is gonna be a big one that will affect everyone else deeply since they said the reprecussions would be felt next season. whoever it is i will be very sad.

I whole-heartedly agree with sharmimi. I think it's Jenny too.

So far viewers think about it from the point of view of the plot. What about the actors Ziva, Tony, McGee and Abby are all to some extent sidekicks to Gibbs, if any one of them would get an offer for a lead role either in a series or a film, they might move on to bigger jobs. As for Gibbs, Mark Harmon had steady appearance on various series, but this is the longest his has ever been on to one role and especially a lead role, so I suppose he would very much care to stay on board. They have a winner with NCIS, getring rid of the lead role would be a massive jeopardy. They tried it with the sory line of Gibbs being in Mexico and it did not work out. Shuffling the team would also solve the predicament as to what to do with Mc Gee, he can't be a probie or junior agent for ever and Tony has to prove himself sooner or later.

OK maybe I just missed it when i scrolled through, but all the people that mention the tests Ducky ran seem to be forgetting another reason for them. The director was told her dead father was seen alive and well. She could have found some old sample or gotten something we don't know about yet and be trying to confirm things one was or the other.

I hate that they are removing a cast member, but I can only hope that it is a walk off, such as 'Tony' relocating to lead his own team, and not a kill off such as 'Kate'. Especially if they remove another woman that way. Way to catalog women as being expendable through death.

Killing off any of the main characters, ducky,gibbs,abby,tony,mcgee, and ziva, would be a tv series sucide. This show would not be the same with any of those characters. I think whoever is suppose to leave should just be transferred or quits their job. This way if the actor or actress wants to come back to the show they can be written back in. I mean look at CSI Miami, the actor that plays Speed was killed off and the only way he can come back is as a ghost. That show for me has not been the same without Speed's character. That character added a certain flair to the show. While I understand that some actors feel the need to move on with their careers sometimes it is best to just wait until the show is cancelled.

i also hope it not Tony Gibbs Abby ducky Ziva and Mcgee They work great 2gether and i dont want them to thinking it might be jenny or ducky(he could have been doing the tests on himself) it also could be Jenny and maybe Jeanne will have something to do with it.

Jag was my heart and as u know this was a spin off. I did not watch it for a while however the last few yrs I have. It is one of few things on TV worth my time. I hated when "Kay" wanted off but now I love Zeba. To me the characters is what make a shop. All the main players now fit that to a T. If they carry thur with the ending show of the season, I will not longer watch the show. First of all, I do not care for the ill-mannered tooth pic man that replaced Jenny. he DOES NOT fit with the show at all. What is the writters thinking? they r not. I hope I do not lose this show. Memorial Day and we have watched re-runs all week-end.

am so devastated, I have been aloyal fan of this show not only Jenny Shepherd is killed, she was trying to protect Gibbs, but then the jerk who replaced her as director then transfers them all out and terminates zivas job , and every one of the team is removed except gibbs, now g9ibbs has no allies and no team he trusts leftam not watching ncis any more am so devastated the entire team were given their marching orders and transferred away- cant live without tony and ziva and probie sorry ncis writers you have lost this very dedicated and loyal fan, its too much for me to cope with the entire team being destroyed by a evil and lacking honour director

The new boss is not the right fit for the show and without the rest of the crew it will be boring. If they thing that leaving McGee, abby and the doc on the show is going to save it think again. If they do not bring ziva, dinozzo and mcgee back I will not watch the next season. They have already made Law and order: criminal intent boring because the bland guy that took Jacks' job is not cutting it. The people watching the shows know what will make it stick.

Come on, people. Did you really think Gibbs was going to stay gone last season? I've liked the cast, too, but sometimes there has to be a shakeup to freshen things up. Same old/same old doesn't maintain the ratings and NCIS is a strong enough show to take the beating. Frankly I'm betting he'll get his whole team back but if he doesn't, he'll whip the new ones into shape. Have a little faith.

Jun 6, 2008 5:48PM EDT

I agree. I think that there's something up with the new director. What did he take out of his file and shred? I think that Gibbs will get together with his team in secret and probably reveal that he's a bad guy, and then Gibbs will get his team back. I really doubt that they will leave the team split up. The writers know better that that.

I can't live without any one of the cast. Except for the Director. Not to be mean or anything, she's just not very important, or a very big character. Which means that I haven't grown attached to her. Everybody else I love.

I believe it will be Ziva---she has a album coming out and she is a budding singer here in the US ---she has a very good song on the NCIS soundtrack
I hope its not her---maybe Mageeand abby is from here where i live and i have not heard a thing about here

May 5, 2009 11:02PM EDT

It would break my heart to see something happen to Abby, Gibbs, or McGee, but I would live............
DON'T MESS WITH TONY OR ZIVA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They are the lifeblood of the show. Their banter is what keeps the show moving in those moments when it slows down in the office. Ziva also provides the writers with more material than any other character, even Gibbs. And without Tony there to unearth that material, it is not nearly as much fun. I cannot watch this show without Ziva and Tony- I liked Kate, but I did not grow to love the show until Ziva came onto the scene and brought out the best in Tony. xD And yes, I am talking about them as though they are real people... hahaha.

The last two comments before mine, please be aware that this was a 2008 topic regarding the Director leaving, who was replaced by Vance. You are worrying about an event that happened already. 8)
