It might be time to start breaking out the tissues, NCIS fans. Michael Weatherly is poised to say goodbye to agent Tony DiNozzo during next week’s big finale and now, it’s looking as though his exit may end in a tragedy.
Weatherly recently sat down with Extra to reminisce on the time he spent playing DiNozzo and during the interview, the actor revealed that death will somehow come into play during his final episode.
“Part of him dies,” teased Weatherly. “I do know that there is death…sudden death.”
Of course, Weatherly wouldn’t say whether or not his character in particular would be kicking the bucket, but his cryptic tease, coupled with the events of Tuesday’s episode have got us wondering if perhaps he could be referring to none other than Ziva David (Cote de Pablo).
This week’s episode left fans everywhere stunned when a news bulletin from Israel informed everyone of an explosion at the farmhouse where Ziva is supposedly staying. Could the sudden death Weatherly mentioned be that of his former coworker? The mere thought breaks our heart, but we wouldn’t rule it out as a possibility.
For now, we’ll have to wait with baited breath until next week when all is revealed during Michael Weatherly’s final episode.
NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on CBS
