Rena Sofer to Appear at Least Twice More on NCIS

by at . Comments

Rena Sofer's no-nonsense lawyer character, M. Allison Hart, has proved a thorn in Jethro Gibbs' side - and at the same time a romantic fascination of his - twice already.

She resurfaces again in NCIS' March 2 episode (the show is off this week and next) and she’ll be back for at least one more after that, according to Entertainment Weekly.

As far as where the producers are taking her relationship with Mark Harmon’s Gibbs, don't ask Rena. Not that she'd tell you if she did, but even she has no idea, by design.

M. Allison Hart

Rena Sofer's Allison Hart in "Masquerade."

Hart's recurring status lends credence to the theory that her arc with Gibbs is part of the show's big season finale, which producers have teased has already started in a sense.

“Mark doesn’t know either,” Sofer says of their relationship.

“We talk about it every time we do a scene together. We don’t know. Personally, I think it’s more fun to play the ambiguity. Once you go to bed with someone, it’s over. Where do you go from there? Part of me that hopes we never know for that reason.”

She's alone in that department - fans can't wait to see where it's headed.

Interestingly, this isn't Sofer's only controversial romance of the season. She's going on a date with Booth on Bones! Both Gibbs and Booth have good taste. Just saying.

I really hate the storyline and the casting of Rena Sofer. I loved the first half of the season but it has taken a bad turn with Masquerade. Sofer's acting is so over the top. I'm seeing this season turning into season 4 which was the only season to drop in viewers. That storyline of Jeanne and her father was so boring. What a surprise Rene Sofer in the cliffhanger with Colonel Bell. What happened NCIS?

McGee: All right. Well you should probably know that Abby and I used to date?

McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: Wait - isn't that a violation of rule 12, never date a....
McGee: It was a long time ago. After we'd broken up, one night I went to her lab. Found a scribbled piece paper; a list. Potential boyfriends had to fulfill certain conditions by a pre-arranged date or else, goodbye.
Bishop: Such as.
McGee: Things started off relatively normal: opening the door for her, flowers, putting the seat down. Then around number 8, it gets uh...
Bishop: What?
McGee: Does she know you have these?
Bishop: Does she know you have these?
McGee: Yeah she wasn't happy when she found out.
Bishop: These are all very specific.
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: These ideas apply to you?
McGee: No those rules weren't in place when we were together. At least I don't think so.
Bishop: What's with the two month cutoff? Abby's sabotaging herself. I've seen stuff like this before. We have to talk to her.
