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.
