Gibbs was shown with the coffin he was in the process of making more than once before Swansong and during Swansong he re-read the letter from Mike Franks explaining that he could no longer run due to these lungs and he had about four months left and he intended to live every one of those months. So guessing he had lung cancer and was already terminal and he chose to fight with P2P killer and go out that way than to wait for the cancer to end his life. The character EJ Barret was the niece of the Secretary of Navy and hence her ability to be in charge as Director Vance had no choice if he wanted to keep his job. Gibbs somehow knew this and kept his eye on her. She also removed a tracking device from her dead team member and I believe this is who Tony is supposed to investigate as I believe everyone knew he was sleeping with her. And if they have to kill off any more characters I hope it is Kort. He has been a thorn in everyone's side for way too long. And I hope CIA Ray does not destroy Ziva. I think he has a hidden agenda also. He may love Ziva or it may be a good showing to try and learn everything he can from her for insider information. It did show her telling him about her day at the office but he could not really return the favor now could he. At least Gibbs saw through him and hopefully will be there to protect her from Ray if he needs to be.

Smart writers! Too bad the politicians won't get their heads out of the sand and recognize the enemy.

NCIS is my all time favorite. Mark Harmon is the best. He really has it going on. The whole group absolutely "rocks"! They are so great together. I see this show going on and on. This is great TV! I live for reruns, too. I simply can't get enough. This from a 68 year old gal, who knows great TV.

Considering the political direction this show has been taking, the Franks character was an embarrassment to Harmon and crew. Here you had a genuine John Wayne type good guy who knew that our contry's enemy is not some squid or jarhead who kills an innocent charactere becaus he's afraid of being caught for stealing/embezzling/sleeping with the wrong person. FRanks knew that the barbarians are truly at the gate and sometimes extraordinary measures need to be taken to protect us from terrorists. It's amazing how the slant of this show has changed since the 2008 election.

NCIS is one of the few "real" shows that mimics real life in that people come and go ... If you want to have your gut wrenched out by characters coming and going, take a look at the British show Spooks (MI-5 in the US). Characters are ROUTINELY killed off, not gratuitously but because people die in the line of duty.

Find a way to bring Mike Franks back

I love Mike Franks! Please bring him back or give him his own show unless of course he is really sick in real life :(

Is the guy Mike really ill? Is this why he left the show?

So many people feel the same way that I do and you do about the mistake made in killing Mike Franks off NCIS, that the spoiler has already leaked out that CBS has seen the light and is bringing the Franks character back, BY POPULAR DEMAND!

Whether it's made to look like a bad dream, PTSS delusion, etc., the fans won't mind and they WILL accept it. As long as Mike comes back from the dead.

As great as the cast is, the show was always better when Franks was featured!

I also need to respond to the same thing GORDON did. Why havent we seen Gibbs even so much as shake Tony's hand or hug him or something having not only saved his life but the life of his daughters friend. Picking the show up with Gibbs in his basement re-burying the lunch box was no way to end that show.
