NCIS Season Premiere Spoilers: 10 Things to Watch For!

at . Comments

The NCIS Season 10 premiere doesn't air on CBS for another two weeks (9/25), but TV Fanatic was fortunate to get its virtual hands on it already, and we can assure you it will be worth the wait.

It's difficult for any season premiere to live up to a summer's worth of hype, especially following a cliffhanger of this magnitude, but by and large, "Extreme Prejudice" comes pretty close.

NOTE: Minor spoilers ahead! While we don't reveal plot points or details that we think would take away from anyone's enjoyment of the episode, you still might want to turn back now.

Without giving away too much, here are 10 things to expect in the premiere ...

Extreme Prejudice Pic

1. The title refers to a euphemism for execution. Playing on the "termination with prejudice" clause used in employment contracts, in military parlance it is understood as an order to assassinate; this is exactly how the President orders the SecNav and NCIS to proceed with the Harper Dearing case.

2. We pick up May 15, 2012, the day of the Season 9 finale, and end on September 25.

3. One of the agents in the building during the blast is light-headed and requires stitches.

4. One of the agents is described as "ripe"; Another is uncharacteristically despondent.

5. Fornell and the FBI offer to take the reins of the investigation from an emotional Gibbs.

6. The elusive Dearing is responsible for two more explosions during the episode.

7. Tony and Ziva's elevator scene(s) don't disappoint. That's all we can say.

8. Post-heart attack, Ducky names Palmer acting medical examiner, but the old man plays a key role later in the episode (the scenes between Jimmy and a hospitalized Ducky are pretty special).

9. Gibbs is seen measuring his basement for reasons unknown.

10. After being flummoxed by his adversary's games, Gibbs hatches a plan to stop Dearing once and for all that Vance reluctantly approves, and leaves the rest of the team gravely concerned.

That's all for now. Follow this link for the first footage from NCIS Season 10 if you haven't seen it, then leave a comment below with your predictions and thoughts on the upcoming premiere!

Maybe this season we finally find out how Gibbs got all those boats out of the basement. :P


Tony NEED and Have grow up or what is the point of making him the leader of the team granted I don't want him to come off super perfect like some NCIS character are protry as BUT I want the tony we saw in season 4 and 5 back


I hope Tony neva grows up th@ would b boring 4 a character such as his.
Though I hope Tiva hook up I like how they are so tense around each other.


Jamie Lee Curtis can still appear on NCIS from what I understand she only on Glee for the novermeber sweep


Thank goodness Jamie Lee Curtis signed with another show and is not coming back-she did not click with Gibbs at all.


@Wow Thanks Mom.


McGee gets hurt in the blast, requires physical therapy and hooks up with a nurse, at long last a love interest that is not out to kill or harm him. Ziva and Tony either get tight or bond like Bro and Sis. My guess get tight and Gibs lightens up about it -- modify rule nbr whatever because life is short. Gibs builds a expanded workshop for his father. Mcgee's aunt is a recurring interest for Ducky.


I want Gibbs with Hollis Mann I liked her. JLC didn't fit Cuz they were a lot a like.


i hope tony never grows up we have enough grown ups on the show as for JLC hope she never comes back she is not right for gibbs.


Love the show and the spoilers. Don't like the endless bickering between posters on this site, though. What a waste of time. We all knew Ducky would be back as he signed another two-year contract months ago. The big question is: Will Tony ever grow up... will it happen this next season? I have my doubts. Please, please bring back Jamie Lee Curtis. She is the only woman character that has had any real chemistry with Gibbs or had his respect. She's as smart and secretive as he is and is so hot... just like Mark Harmon.

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: These are all very specific.
McGee: Yeah.
