NCIS season 9 ended with the explosion that rocked HQ and Ducky suffering a heart attack on the beach while he was on the phone learning that he was needed back home. What does this mean for what’s coming up next?
Season 10 Spoilers
The events of “Till Death Do Us Part” are not anything that they can just get over in the span of even one episode. It’s going to take time and lots of healingÂ—not to mention some rebuilding, in terms of HQ after the explosion. It’s still unclear if the team lost one of its own in the bomb, and even if they didn’t, there could still be some lasting effects. Someone who is going to be affected in the future by the events of the season 9 finale is Ducky. While he’s obviously not going to die (he’s Ducky, plus David McCallum just signed on for two more seasons), a heart attack is serious and not something that he can just get over quickly.
According to TV Guide, executive producer Gary Glasberg has revealed, “There are psychological ramifications that will carry over,” and he pointed specifically to Ducky: “How will that affect his character as a medical examiner and his approach to dealing with the dead? How might it change him and the way he views things?” Hopefully it doesn’t change him too muchÂ—things wouldn’t be the same without him and his anecdotes both in autopsy and at crime scenes. However, this could give them a chance to explore more about his characterÂ—and perhaps some back story?Â—and also explore more about Jimmy Palmer and what the aftermath of this means for him back at work.
How different will things be when NCIS season 10 begins? Even if everyone does survive to see another season, there could be quite a different feel to things as Gibbs hunts down Dearing for what he’s done and the team then moves on to other cases. Storylines like this just show that while the series is going into its 10th season, there is a reason it’s number one.
