‘NCIS’ Fans Debate Their Favorite of Gibbs’ Girlfriends

by Joe Rutland

You know, Outsiders, that those of you who are NCIS fans do have some interesting topics for discussion. Like, who tops Gibbs’ girlfriends?

OK, so this is worth a look. A thread on Reddit is dedicated to this very subject. It’s titled, “Women in Gibbs’ Life.” And, in case you have been living under a rock, Gibbs refers to Leroy Jethro Gibbs, played by Mark Harmon.

Gibbs departed the NCIS scene this season. Now, let’s turn our attention to the girlfriends’ questions.

A fan writes, “While I enjoyed Pam Dawber’s Marcy, my favorite is Jamie Lee Curtis’ Ryan. She brought out a different aspect of Mark – someone sexier and softer. They had great chemistry and just always seemed so natural together. I wish the character had stayed longer.”

‘NCIS’ Fans Consider Samantha Ryan, Hollis Mann As Good Choices

Yet another NCIS fan writes, “Are we looking at who is best for Gibbs or who we like for ourselves? For Gibbs: I agree. Samantha Ryan was a good match. For me: Hollis Mann. Love a woman in uniform.” A fan replies, “Oh, good point. Both work!”

Then we have this fan writing, “Honestly, I couldn’t see Dr. Ryan leave fast enough. Was she a good character? Yes, but I just could not see her and Gibbs together. Hollis Mann was my preference but the last thing I think Gibbs needed was a significant other. It just didn’t fit. Towards the end with Marcy, sure, but not at the heights of the show.”

Now, another NCIS fan says, “I loved Ryan. But Gibbs with Jen and Hollis is for me. After Shannon, Gibbs truly loved Jen..I wish she wasn’t killed so abruptly.”

Among all of Gibbs’ girlfriends, who are your top picks, Outsiders?

We know you probably have a thought or two about this matter. Offer up the selections in our comments.

Meanwhile, NCIS is still on CBS and going strong this season. Tune in on Mondays at 9 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. Central. Gary Cole as Special Agent Alden Parker is overseeing the team these days with Gibbs out of the picture.

Show Viewers Think Harmon Is Retunring For This Reason

Never let it be said that NCIS fans will not go to any lengths when it comes to theories around the return of Harmon to the TV show.

Harmon did leave the show but some people just remain convinced that he will, indeed, make another appearance.

The reason? Oh boy, here goes.

Harmon’s Leroy Jethro Gibbs still is the first character in the NCIS intro. CBS added Gary Cole, who plays Alden Parker, to the end of the intro, but never deleted Harmon. OK, so just keep an eye on this situation.
