NCIS Scoop on Ray, Season Finale Arc

by at . Comments

As we reported a few weeks ago, NCIS will be introducing Ziva’s boyfriend Ray later this season. But who is this mysterious man? TV Line has some new details.

Ray arrives in this season’s 20th episode, Michael Ausiello says, and is a handsome, charming, intelligent federal agent of Mediterranean/Latin American descent.

He has a strong, nice-guy demeanor but “there’s a hint of a mystery behind his smile.” The role is still uncast, incidentally. Any thoughts on who should play Ray?

Ziva and Gibbs Picture

Whatever Ray looks like, his role remains shrouded in mystery.

As for whether the show is leading up to something big for the eighth season finale, TV Line says the season will end with a big, splashy serial killer arc.

Any theories on how that ties in with the escalating Gibbs-Vance drama, if it ties in with it at all? Think any other familiar faces (or stories) will emerge?

Bruno Campos for Ray.

I liked Eric Murciano on "Without a Trace." But last night's episode seems to be leading elsewhere. Do you think that maybe -- especially with the budget cuts -- Tony will accept a different assignment, with a new partner?

Benjamin Bratt.

I just read that "Enrique Murciano" will play Ray! It's a actor of "Without a trace" - for those who don't know.

I'm not sure who it should be, but while I like Jimmy Smits, he is a bit old for Ziva. Nick Lea is a good option, but I'm sure the producers will get the right one. At least I hope they do. Whoever he is, he needs a maturity that matches Zivas without but he also needs to not seem old.

I dunno, but this is kinda bringing up Rivkin flashbacks for me. I really hope it isn't like that, but the spoiler says that it will be a team-centered finale, which is always good. I am hoping for a great finale! Don't let us down writers, although you haven't yet this season!!

NCIS Quotes

McGee: All right. Well you should probably know that Abby and I used to date?
Bishop: Ew. Like, each other?
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.

Tony: You know the "Men" in "Men's Room" is more of a rule than a suggestion, probie.
Bishop: Look, you two always get to go off giggling to the urinal together and I always get left out. So we're going to talk and we're going to do it here.
