TV Guide scoop on final

Airs: Tuesday, May 13 at 8/7c

NCIS' season-ender will rely more on emotion as opposed to action, with the show paying tribute to the late Ralph Waite. Viewers will learn more about young Jack Gibbs through flashbacks — and will also see a different side of his son Jethro in the process. "This was such a significant event for us, both on-screen and off, that we wanted to handle it properly and do it well, and let people mourn the passing of Gibbs' dad with him," executive producer Gary Glasberg says. "It's no secret that Season 11 had all kinds of challenges that came up, from Ziva's departure to Bishop's arrival, and then the New Orleans episodes. ... We wanted to not necessarily do another cliff-hanger, but do something that informed our characters and brought our family and our team together."
