Gibbs (Mark Harmon) better watch his back, because one of his ex-girlfriend’s is returning! TVLine exclusively reports that Susanna Thompson will be back as Gibbs’ former flame, Hollis Mann.
If you didn’t know, ‘NCIS’ will soon be celebrating its 250th episode (talk about a huge celebration!), and it seems Thompson will pop around the landmark episode. Sources confirmed to TVLine that Thompson will return to the Navy procedural this January.
Thompson recurred throughout ‘NCIS’ for six episodes as Jethro’s Army love. The last time we saw Hollis was in Season 5, where she not only met one of Gibbs’ three ex-wives, but she also learned that the silver fox’s one true love would always be his first wife, Shannon. The two were pretty serious, but eventually they parted ways. Gibbs remained at NCIS, while Hollis retired and left D.C.
Executive producer Gary Glasberg teased, “She is coming back in an unexpected way.” That sounds a bit ominous, right? Why do you think Hollis is returning? Do you think she’s coming back for Gibbs?
With Cote de Pablo’s departure as Ziva David at the beginning of this season, ‘NCIS’ has been making some big changes and spicing up episodes. Bringing back Thompson for an episode is a great way to do just that!
Are you excited to see Thompson return? Let us hear your thoughts!
‘NCIS’ airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on CBS.
