As we well know, Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) decided to stay in Alaska in the previous episodes, however, the truth is that for now this veteran on-screen agent has not been missed too much. The reason? It is simply because it is due to his replacement with his colleague Alden Parker (Gary Cole) in front of the team.
Although many lovers of this television story are lamenting the departure of actor Harmon, it is well known from experience that when a character does not die on the screen in a series or movie, he always has the possibility of rejoining the plot. Of course, the case of Gibbs is no exception.
In this comeback episode, he dominated the long-awaited reunion of Mark Harmon, despite his departure in episode four. As we’ll recall, Gibbs left viewers heartbroken after he stepped back from being a special agent and in charge of NCIS.
For almost two decades, Mark Harmon was playing this character, it is completely understandable that the exit was truly emotional, since everyone was used to seeing him perform on screens.
