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?
