23rd Oct: It's time for the second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest, theme: cute monsters! Details and voting here.
Ziva will be killed off in the season finaleOr she could end up killing Bodnar. That could potentially piss off quite a few people, SecNav included. As Cote De Pablo is in contract negotiations this year, her departure is a possibility. The Bodnar arc would allow for her to be written off in some way. None of the main cast died. However, Ziva, Tony and McGee resigned, their ultimate fates unrevealed until season 11, and Gibbs is off on a sniper mission of some kind. Unfortunately, the OP was right about Cote De Pablo leaving. At least she's been confirmed to do several guest appearances so it looks like she won't be leaving the show in a pine box.
Abby is Death
Gibbs is the incarnation of TyrNorse God of Justice? It explains so much, including his Offscreen Teleportation and what he does with the damn boats.
Each Member of Team Gibbs is out of Norse MythologyGibbs: Odin, natch. The Allfather is the Team Dad, his spear that never misses is a sniper rifle these days, his omniscient gut shows his allseeing foresight, and besides: who else could be THAT much of a badass. Abby: Freya, she's the team's heart and hospitality and spends all her off-hours doing charity work for things like Habitat for Humanity. And no one but the Goddess of Magic could do forensics quite like her, all by herself. DiNozzo: Loki, before he went to the darkside he was Thor's partner in crime: clearly why they're all being human is part of a trick to avoid repeating the same patterns again. He's silver-tongued, tricky, and Vitriolic Best Buds with... Kate: Thor, The Protector of Midguard was assigned to protect the President and, aside from Gibbs, she was probably the toughest character before Ziva appeared. Kate did not die, she just went back to Asgard. Ziva: Deadly dangerous, cold, beautiful, and her radio codename is usually Archangel. Do we even NEED to say Valkyrie? Chooser of the Slain indeed. McGee: Bragi: Inspiration Poetry and Divination, his presence is the reason Everything Is Online. He's even a famous writer. And you know how for ages he had to go get the coffee? Sounds like mead of inspiration to me... Ducky: a tricky one, Vakyrie is already covered for psychopomps and Hel was only goddess of the dishonered dead. But given he is the wise one in the basement, Gibbs confidant, and has to do with the handling of death, let's go with Mimir, guardian of the well of fate.
Jenny Sheppard's plot line is not over.Jenny was killed off, true; but we never found out the story behind her father. Isn't odd that, just as she was looking into him and had evidence that he was still alive, someone from her past magically finds her and kills her? The timing is suspicious. Whatever she was involved in isn't over yet.
Gibbs is secretly the (somewhat) mortal son of Chuck Norris
NCIS has a serious mole problemWe've caught one mole, but there have been several times when various other agencies have taken long hard looks at NCIS for moles, both before and after the resolution of the 'mole plotline.' There's still at least one mole in the organization.
In the last season or two of NCIS, the show will move away from its 'realistic' take, and feature a shadowy organization that was behind much of the earlier plot twists, including Jenny's death and Mossad agents tendencies to go rogue.We'll only find out about it after Eli David is rousted from Mossad and the agency falls under the evil organizations power. Said organization is probably connected to whoever Jenny Sheppard's father works for.
Rivkin's apology just before he died in Aliyah was not for dying, but for betraying Ziva.And he was drinking so much for the last few episodes of that season because he did not like betraying her.
Allison Hart didn't show up because Bell sent her; she got Bell off on her own.She'll turn out to be related to Shannon or one of Gibbs' early cases somehow, and is bent on revenge. But will instead wind up in love with him.
Tony was once a foster brother to Temperance BrennanSeems to be a popular fanfiction idea. Tony has mentioned a sister multiple times, despite being reminded he's an only child. Also, Bones was in the foster system for what seems to be quite a while, it's not impossible that at some point she was in the care of the DiNozzo family. Besides, the DiNozzos are rich, they could probably handle a foster kid or two.
It's the same boat.Whenever Gibbs finishes building it, he takes it apart and starts over. Why does he do this? Because he uses boat building in much the same way as other people would use model trains, or bonsai trees. It acts as a way for him to work off the stresses of the day.
NCIS-LA's missing agent Dom is actually a spy/Manipulative Bastard.The kidnapping is just a cover for him to return to whoever he ''really'' works for (they had to be really realistic just in case his car was bugged), and the next time we see him he'll be gloating over the Evil Plan he's pulled over the whole team.
NCIS is actually an alternate universe for the Stargate Verse.Let's face it, the sheer number of former Stargate actors appearing in the show cannot be an accident.
Kate actually ascended.She's not ascended! She's a reaper.
Abby's going to die in the season finale.Something major is going to happen, anyway.
Abby's right.Gibbs really IS a bit psychic.
Tim is bi-curious.Tony seems so adamant!
Gibbs got the boat out of his basement by using magic.There is no other solution - even Abby remained stumped.
Gibbs's mother was a redhead.Hence his attraction to them. Also, his daughter Kelly was a redhead, so she had to get the redhead gene from both parents. Jackson Gibbs did not have red hair, as seen in the episode "Heartland", so it had to be a grandparent from one side of the family at least.
Gibbs' mother was deaf.He knows sign language for no readily apparent reason. We know his father isn't deaf. There's never been any sign of any other close family members even existing. Seems to make sense. Further to this, in a Much Wilder Mass Guess, Gibbs may have inherited the condition that made his mother deaf, based on his statement, when asked if he was deaf or stupid, that he's "a little of both".
Vance will be killed or somehow removed from the director's position at some point.Now that we've learned his big secret, about the page he took out of his file, his big background event is resolved. When Jenny Sheppard's background event was resolved, she died. Based on precedent, it's not looking good for Leon...
McGee's mother was Gibbs’ mysterious redheaded girlfriend during the first two seasonsHe did not know she was dating Gibbs until he saw her at the office and asked Tony and Kate what they knew about her to see if they were aware of his connection to her. He did not reveal he was her son because he got the job on his own and was afraid that his co-workers would tease him about it like they do about everything else. Finally the two of them looked quite a bit alike (the actress who played her, Vivienne Bellisario, is the real life mother of Sean Murray who plays McGee).
Gibbs will retire in the series finale.The final scene will be McGee hazing the new agent, and Tony will come up behind him and give him a Gibbs Slap.
Gibbs will die in the series finale.The final scene will be Gibbs in the afterlife reuniting with his family.
At some near-future we will have CGIS spin-off show.Hardly WMG, methinks.
The eyeball belongs to Agent KeatingHis teammates on the brief "new team", Langer and Lee, both turned out to be important and Keating did nothing. Now it's his turn to be killed by the plot.
The File Tony was handed in the finale of Season 8Was either about Ray or Kort. It's clear that those two are part of some new mystery, and we can pretty much rule out Gibbs or McGee as people who would betray their country.
Season 9 will be the lastSomething will lead to Gibbs deciding to finally retire for good this time, but will have likely solved some massive conspiracy. Of course, a flash forward will show that Tony and the gang still call to him much like he did with Franks.
The series won't end until the rest of the rules are revealed
Gibbs is a wizard.You know it's true.
When we'll find out how Gibbs get his boats out of his basement......we will find out for what G's name stands for.
Gibbs is the goddamn Batman.He got the boats out via the Batcave.
Jeanne and Tony WILL get back together in the series finale
The agent Tony is tasked with investigating at the end of Season 8 is on his own team.
Jenny bought Mossad information on The Frog with putting Ziva on the team.
The UST between Ziva and Tony shall be resolved on the Series Finale
Abby is a Spark.
There is an in-universe show about a fictional NCIS teamAnd it started about the same time as the real show did. That's why, after the first few episodes, hardly anyone ever asks who/what the hell NCIS is when the team flash their badges at civilians. At some point, the navy consultant attached to this show will be murdered, and Team Gibbs will be called in to investigate.
Ducky is Illya Kuryakin
Gibbs gets the boats outBy wishing them to the cornfield.
Ray Cruz was a fall guy for the CIA
Gibbs is a Jumper
Tony and Ziva both took the bed in Paris
Gibbs is the Angel of Death
Shannon and Kelly are not dead.
Gibbs dies protecting Abby from the explosionI can't think of any other way I think he would find more preferable.
The "her" in Tony's Bucket List's part "Tell her" is Ziva......because he wants to tell her that he has been in love with her for years but never had the courage to actually tell her, so he hid behind his "clownish" persona. And then Ziva will tell him that she felt the same.
If Michael Weatherly ever decides he's done with the show, here's how they'll handle his departure...They won't kill him off the way they did with Kate. No no no. Instead, they'll pull a little something like this...his mother is dead. We know that. But how did she die? Well, recently it was suspected that Robert Wagner managed to off his lovely wife Natalie Wood by pushing her overboard while she was drunk so she would drown. (Which has always bothered me, since Wood was known to be terrified of the open water, so why would she be on a yacht anyway, drunk or not?) Well, perhaps in-universe they could pull a reference to this and have it so that by the twentieth season finale or whatever ('cause I can see this show easily running as long as the original Law & Order, or even longer) we can get a story arc where it's found out that Tony Senior did it, in much the same way, and Tony Junior will be forced to arrest his own father. After which point he'll be so shocked by what has happened that he'll just decide to retire from NCIS - and not return the way Gibbs did between seasons three and four.
Gibbs shot La GrenouilleWe know he gave a spare magazine to Shepard, we know she gave it back to him the next morning - but we don't know that it's the same magazine that has the tell-tale defect.
Vance and Sec Nav served together in the NavyAnd Crimson Tide is a prequel movie. After the failed operation in Amsterdam in the early 1990s, Vance returned to the Naval Academy under the assumed name of Derek Westergard to escape the assassins hunting him, and was deployed aboard the USS Alabama alongside the future Sec Nav. During this timeframe he met his wife, who is referred to in the movie. Following the events aboard the Alabama in October 1995, both he and Sec Nav either quit the Navy or were discharged. Vance went back into law enforcement, and in order to escape the disgrace of the incident eventually dropped the "Derek Westergard" identity once the danger of assassination was deemed to have passed, (though as the events of Enemies Foreign/Enemies Domestic proved, this may have been misguided).
The home-soil threat that Morrow mentioned is a private security firm called Ravenwood.As we know, Morrow told Vance that the deaths of Eli David and his Iranian counterpart were distractions to keep people off-base while the real threat to America's future was a home-grown menace. What better menace than a bunch of right-wing whackjobs and corporate jerkwads trying to start their own country? And what better way to stop it than getting Super-Kill Guy Jethro Gibbs to fix the problem?
When the events of Revolution occurred, this show came to an abrupt end.When a worldwide, supposedly permanent blackout occurs, the television becomes useless. Unfortunately, that causes TV shows to become extinct along with the television.
Lt. Columbo is a real person in the NCIS universe.In that episode that featured the private detective in the raincoat, McGee compares him to Columbo. The series is known for dropping lots of film references but they never state anything to the effect of "he's like a real life Columbo", McGee simply says he's like a private detective version of Columbo. So what? Well if you've watched the Columbo films, you'd know that he'd made the news multiple times over his career- he was already regarded as a top detective when the series began, some of his cases made Los Angeles news, his case aboard the cruise ship made national Mexican newspapers, and the incident from "Columbo Cries Wolf" made major international news. Lt. Columbo is a major celebrity amongst law enforcement, so it's not unlikely that McGee would know who the man is. Perhaps the production staff was hoping for Peter Falk to make a cameo by name dropping Columbo in such a manner? It didn't happen as Falk's health was already in bad shape by then, and he died a few years ago.
Gibbs wasn't trying to kill Fornell at the end of Season 10.He was trying to protect him, and from whom will be revealed in "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot."
Ivan is going to be the Big Bad of season 11, or at least be a major antagonist.He's stated to be one of the most powerful mob bosses in America, and Tony just destroyed his one chance to avenge his son's death. He is not going to let this one slide.
Ziva will return at some point during the next two seasons...With an infant daughter. After it is revealed that she and Tony conceived her before they said goodbye early in Season 11, Tony will resign from NCIS and join Ziva in Israel where they will raise their daughter together.
It will be revealed Ziva left the group and went back to Israel because she is dying of AIDSZiva was held in Somalia for several months during which time it is canon that she was tortured. It is pretty much a rock-solid certainty she was repeatedly raped during that period (it's hinted as much in the show when Ducky says that a lot of thing happened to her that she hasn't revealed). Given the prevalence of HIV in that area, it would be something close to a miracle if she hadn't been infected. She also had no medical treatment during that period, exacerbating the progress of the disease. her behavior, going back to her roots and retracing her life/trying to make amends all fits that hypothesis. She's dropped off the grid because she wants her friends and NCIS family to remember her the way she was. Ducky knows she is HIV-positive and moving rapidly into full-blown AIDS but has kept quiet at her request.
Ziva never really made mistakes with English idioms.Knowing when she joined the team that she was going to scare people, she set out to cultivate some trait that would make her seem less perfect and slightly funny, while not affecting her professional competence. Her English is never faulty when it matters, and most of her malapropisms are too amusing to be real mistakes.
Jenny's father was murdered by the C.I.A.He was on the verge of innocently exposing illegal covert operations, so the Agency ordered him killed. And Trent Kort, in his first C.I.A.-sanctioned kill, did the deed. Thus, Kort killed both Jenny's father and the man Jenny mistakenly blamed for killing her father.
