NCIS Burning Question: Where is McGee?

at . Comments

Where is Tim?

It's a question many NCIS fans have been asking since May, and one Gary Glasberg touched on in a recent interview with Xfinity. Regarding why McGee isn't in any Season 10 promos, the executive producer says:

"You know what? Everyone reacted to the promo we put out because we didn’t see him. I wish I could take credit for that. I am happy everyone is guessing. McGee has an interesting story."

"He is always there for us for any technological snafu. There is some really fun stuff that is coming up with him. We are going to touch on his personal life. It is no mistake that he talks to his grandmother and discusses his father."

"We will have to see later in the season where that goes."

For anyone concerned that McGee had somehow been killed off ... exhale.

Regarding the overall theme of this season and beyond, Glasberg adds:

"It is the tenth season of our show. That alone is an accomplishment. Moving forward from season ten, I want to dive into these characters even more than we have in the last ten years."

"Part of that is seeing them when they are facing adversity, when they have been hurt and they are down, and watching them rise back up again. That [common theme], whether it is directly touched upon or indirectly, does sort of carry through in a lot of the storylines that we are doing.”

Palmer: I take it you heard?
Gibbs: Mmm hmm.
Palmer: Yeah, she saw the baby and just....I guess she felt the same way we felt when we first saw him. Can't fault her for that, right?
Gibbs: You should go home.
Palmer: I will. Yeah Breena and I, we just wanted to get all this stuff out of the house. You know, we wanted to give it back as soon as possible.
Gibbs: We.
Palmer: Me. She's hurting too, but she is so much stronger. She's ready to try again. And me - I feel like I can't breathe. I never felt this bad in my life, Gibbs.
Gibbs: Well, just wait until it's 3:00 in the morning, and your kid's running 104. You're just getting started.
Palmer: That's the point. I'm not starting, you know? Maybe I never will.
Gibbs: Well then fight for it, Palmer! That's what you do. You fight for your family. And sometimes, you fight like hell just to have one.
Palmer: You want me to fight, I feel like I just went ten rounds with Joe Louis.
Gibbs: Do you want to be a dad, Palmer? Because right now, this is being a dad.
Palmer: Maybe I'm not ready.
