NCIS Scoop on Ray, Season Finale Arc

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?

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?

NCIS Quotes

‘You think you’re alone in the dark. Close your eyes. Remember everything good.’ My mom said that to me just before she died. Smart lady.

Gibbs

Morrow: There's a connection between the death of that Navy Seal and what's happening with your team.
Vance: What kind of connection?
Morrow: The murder of Eli David opened a political can of worms that was much bigger than anyone expected.
Vance: Eli and Arash Kazmi wanted to forget a peace. But Bodnar killing them opened the door.
Morrow: Homeland and the CIA wait for chances like this, to stir the pot. Distract governments so that all sorts of recon can happen. The CIA needed Iran to believe Mossad was responsible.
Vance: Are you telling me that Bodnar didn't kill Kazmi?
Morrow: I'm telling you we did it, Leon. The CIA took out Kazmi that night so that Bodnar would end up being the fall guy. Iran and Israel could duke it out while we focused on the real threat. We're all so damned worried about Iran and North Korea when the real threat is here, on home soil.
Vance: It's a shell game isn't it? Keep people distracted.
Morrow: Leon you see why I wanted you to keep your distance?
