Keck's Exclusives: Get to Know the New NCIS Analyst

I’m dying to know who this new NCIS female agent will end up with: Tony (Michael Weatherly) or Gibbs (Mark Harmon)? — Leslie, Portland, Oregon

Try neither. Turns out, analyst Ellie Bishop (Emily Wickersham, who debuts Nov. 19) is happily married, and executive producer Gary Glasberg has no adulterous plans in the works. “We will eventually meet her husband, who is an attorney with the NSA,” says Glasberg, who may also introduce Ellie’s brothers. “This is a very different relationship from anything we’ve had. There’s something interesting in this world when you have a spouse you can’t tell everything to, and taking on the added responsibilities of this new job could come with consequences.”

Though that may sound like the setup for a split, Glasberg describes Ellie’s relationship with Gibbs as a fatherly mentorship, while she and Tony will develop a sibling-like bond. Glasberg also plans to address the tragic 1995 Oklahoma City bombing that influenced Ellie’s desire to work with the NSA. The Nov. 19 episode will find Tony discussing dating for the first time since Ziva’s exit, and 2014 will likely see the eligible bachelor dipping back into the dating pool.
