‘NCIS’ Fans Debate Their ‘Favorite Villains’

by Chase Thomas

Who is your favorite villain from NCIS over the years? This is the question that NCIS fans are debating at the moment. Who was the best?

The list is long because the show has been so successful for so long. And all those years have provided fans with plenty of villains to debate.

The original user put up a poll for the question with the following main villains featured: “Ari Haswari Harper Dearing Trent Kort Reynosas/Reynosa Cartel Agent Lee Other/Comment Below.”

Some fans commented, outside of just voting. One user wrote, “The Harper Dearing episodes were a ride in the best way. And we got Fornell in the mix too.”

Another user wrote, “you put lee but left out la grenouille? lee is debatable as a true villain because she was being blackmailed. if you put her in you might as well put eli david. i get that the space is limited but it still seems odd.”

So, there was not a unanimous consensus when it came to the best overall villain was over the years. What say you, Outsiders?

That Time Mark Harmon’s Wife Joined ‘NCIS’

One of the coolest and perhaps most surprising moments from NCIS over the twenty-plus years on the program was when Harmon’s wife joined the show as an investigative journalist.

After years and years, it finally happened. She spoke to Entertainment Weekly about it, where she said, “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.”

It was not something she was into. Not for the longest time. Then, the right character came up. This character of Marcie popped up. She said, “Then I guess they had created this character Marcie. 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?'”

And the rest was history on NCIS.
