NCIS is one of those shows that finds itself in a unique position as lasting 13 seasons, and yet still has a very devoted following. It has just been announced that one of the show's cast that has been since Season 1 is leaving, which has opened up the idea for other main characters to leave, in order to be replaced with new ones. However, it looks like the show is still continuing to produce quality episodes, and that doesn't seem to quit. This is what is known about NCIS Season 13, Episode 14 and 15 Air Dates, TV Schedule, Spoilers, and Update on Michael Weatherly.
According to imdb.com, the synopsis of Season 13, Episode 14 reads "The team investigates the murder of a deep-sea diver outside a high-tech decompression chamber where the body and suspects have to stay for four days." The episode is appropriately titled "Decompressed", and it feels like a good formula for a "bottle episode".
If you aren't familiar with the term of "bottle episode", it is when a television show takes place in one setting (usually the set that is used every week) and the story is one where the characters can't leave the room. Considering that the main characters are on the outside of this decompression room, it is possible that they could leave, and possibly pursue other secondary plots.
However, from the way this episode is talked about, it appears that the bulk of the primary plot will be in this decompression room, where all suspects have to remain with the body. Expect a lot of suspicion from every character in what looks like to be a whodunit from literally beneath the sea.
NCIS is in a unique spot as Michael Weatherly aka Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo Jr., will be leaving. Movie Guide News reports that CBS is already looking for two new characters to join the team. One of these two characters will be some no-nonsense female named Tess. Tess has been divorced three times, tough on the outside, and is a former FBI agent come the Counter-Terrorism Unit in New York.
Speaking of FBI agents, a familiar face will be returning as Senior FBI Agent T.C. Fornell (Joe Spano) will be seen in Season 13, Episode 15 "React". Agent Fornell will assist the NCIS team after the daughter of the Secretary of the Navy Sarah Porter (Leslie Hope) is kidnapped. Fornell's last appearance was just a few episodes ago in Season 13, Episode 10 with "Blood Brothers", and this character has appeared in many episodes throughout the years.
There is also a report that Episode 15 will have NCIS Special Agent Timothy "Tim" McGee, played by Sean Murray, will be reuniting with a good friend of his, NCIS Special Agent Valerie Page, played by Christina Chang, as she will be in Washington DC in order to aid them for a training program amongst NCIS agents.
