Bishop, Tony, Ziva & More ‘NCIS’ Exits: Which Ones Were the Most Shocking?
NCIS said goodbye to one of its own — though not necessarily for good, since the character is still alive — in the Season 18 finale, and it was far from the first time the team bid farewell to one of its members. It also wasn’t the first time that someone left unexpectedly.
Ellie Bishop’s (Emily Wickersham) seasons-long arc culminated in her becoming a disgraced NCIS agent as a cover for some sort of undercover op, the details of which are unknown. And while it could easily have only lasted over hiatus (and she could have been back with the team early on into Season 19), the star confirmed after the finale aired that it was her final episode.
Wickersham joins a list that includes Sasha Alexander (Kate Todd), Michael Weatherly (Tony DiNozzo), Pauley Perrette (Abby Sciuto), Duane Henry (Clayton Reeves), and others. How does Bishop’s stack up against the other characters’ exits in terms of shock factor? Scroll down to see.
