The special agents on the Naval Criminal Investigative Service team are on a breather before returning to CBS for a pre-Christmas episode on Dec. 15. In the meantime, NCIS' season 13, episode11 poses a few cliffhangers:
First of all, there's the marriage drama for Agent Ellie Bishop (Emily Wickersham). Things did not really turn out so well for her when she went home for the Thanksgiving holidays. Her marriage woes did not go away and she is still head locked with her straying husband, Jake Malloy (Jamie Bamber).
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, actress Emily Wickersham gives the lowdown on what she thinks will really happen to Bishop and her rocky marriage. The sad thing is that Bishop is choosing to divorce Malloy, and it's all going downhill from there.
Bishop has a few solid reasons for throwing in the towel. The first is that Wickersham believes that she doesn't have a solid foundation with Jake. Jake is the kind of man who is quick to take the easy way out, hence the affairs.
The marriage is also a case for two lives spending far apart. Bishop and Malloy work for different agencies that take too much time from their lives. In the end, the couple spends more time with their colleagues than they do with each other.
With these new state of affairs, viewers should expect Bishop to be a little shaky on the job as the depression of being in a divorce creeps up on her.
However, the more shocking possibility is that Malloy may not be cheating at all and is covering up something more sinister.
Christian Post also reports that Ducky (David McCallum) will also be facing a deeply emotional return to the past when he gets locked in a mysterious incident. Ducky is assaulted by an unknown assailant.
The catch is, the attacker is someone who knows him and who has a deep connection to his past. He has some important info on Ducky's half brother, and this is someone that Ducky can't afford not to face.
This NCIS team will investigate on the attacker, which leads the investigation to open up the past involving Ducky and his family.
The kicker is that is this mysterious attacker none other than the half-brother who was supposedly dead in the last ten years? The whole thing leads Ducky to remember the last moments he spent with his departed brother.
