NCIS is one of the biggest shows of the last twenty years. It has been a staple for so many CBS viewers for so long. With its longevity comes other things, too, though. When a show is on as long as NCIS has been on, that means a lot of storylines have to take place. It’s the nature of the beast. So, it should come as no surprise to see that some fans are still wondering about previous storylines on the program. Like we said, Outsiders, it comes with the territory.
Well, some NCIS fans can’t get past these “unanswered questions” from the show. (Potential spoilers ahead, Outsiders, if you are not all the way caught up.) Some of these questions include: “The amount of unanswered questions and plot holes from this show bother me. And many are from too long ago to answer. Like who killed The Frog. What was up with Director Sheppard’s dad maybe being alive.”
It looks like the question involving The Frog can be answered, though. One user wrote in the comments, “As I understood Director killed the Frog, although the CIA took the blame. And also they (CIA) wanted to make her look crazy so they made her think her father was alive.”
Another user wrote, “Some things you just have to take and accept it as the nature of the business when things in the background change.”
Pam Dawber Joins ‘NCIS’
One of the bigger surprises on the program was when Mark Harmon’s wife finally guest-starred on the program. She told EW, “The show has been on for a hundred years, and they have come at me a few times. Either I just didn’t want to do it or I didn’t appreciate what it was they wanted me to do. Or it was near Christmas and it was like, “I can’t do this. I’ve got my parents coming into town.” I just haven’t been interested in, you know, chasing the business. At this age, that’s what you do. You’d have to really want it. I just don’t want to put myself out anymore. You know the old song, “I haven’t got time for the pain.” Then I guess they had created this character Marcie.”
That character was a game-changer for her. Before, she was not interested in joining the universe. The characters did not work for her.
She concluded, “Mark didn’t tell me about it. Suddenly I have an email from my agent and I was like, “Oh, poor Harry, my poor agent, here we go again. I’m going to turn him down.” And he goes, “Well, you might want to read this.” I guess they were running names for who they could bring in for it and Mark said, “You should be talking to my wife about this character.” The character is so good. I just fell in love with what they wrote. And then I had anxiety like, “Oh my God, am I going to do this?”
The rest was history. It was super cool, though, that Harmon and his wife got to appear on the show NCIS together before he departed.
