PHOTOS: Susanna Thompson Returns to ‘NCIS’ as Hollis Mann
Who’s ready for the return of Hollis Mann? That’s right, the ex-flame of Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) is set to make her triumphant return to The Navy Yard.
Last November, it was reported that Susanna Thompson (‘Arrow’) would once again strut her stuff as former Army Lt. Col. Hollis Mann aka the woman who once had Gibbs’ heart. TVLine first broke the news and spoke with executive producer Gary Glasberg, who revealed that Mann would come back to ‘NCIS’ “in an unexpected way.”
Well, fans don’t have to wait much longer, as Mann will return in this Tuesday’s episode, titled “Kill Chain.” The episode -- the first of 2014 -- is described as follows, “When a stolen drone is linked to the elusive terrorist Parsa, the NCIS team partners with the Department of Defense, including Gibbs' former girlfriend Hollis Mann, to track down the device before it is used for a large scale attack.”
As you can see from the above photos, which show only glimpses of Thompson as Mann, the team is once again working their magic to bring down one ominous criminal, Benham Parsa. For even more shots of Mann’s return, check out the below promo.
Not only does the video show the NCIS team investigating, but it also showcases Vance’s (Rocky Carroll) concern over another former Gibbs love. He asks Gibbs, “Not another one of your ex-wives, is it?”
If ‘NCIS’ fans know anything, it’s that Gibbs and Mann work extremely well together when it comes to terrorists -- remember Sharif? So, it’s safe to say this duo, despite their past romance, will make for one great episode.
