NCIS Premiere Drops Major Clue for Ducky Tribute Episode! Fans, You Won’t Believe What’s Coming Next!

The Season 21 premiere of NCIS offers viewers a glimpse into the emotional journey ahead, setting the stage for a poignant tribute to the late David McCallum and his iconic character, Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard.

Following the intense focus on Nick Torres’ personal struggles and the resolution of a case tied to his past, the episode concludes with a moment of anticipation as the team prepares to head out to a crime scene. However, their plans are halted by a phone call that leaves Alden Parker visibly shaken.

As the team anxiously awaits an explanation, it becomes evident that the news they’re about to receive is likely the devastating loss of Ducky, hinted at in pre-season promos. McCallum’s final appearances in Season 20 served as a testament to his enduring impact on the show, and his absence is keenly felt as the team grapples with the news of his passing.

In the upcoming episode, “The Stories We Leave Behind,” airing on February 19, the NCIS team navigates their grief while delving into one of Ducky’s unfinished cases. Co-written by Brian Dietzen, who portrays Dr. Jimmy Palmer and first appeared as Ducky’s assistant in Season 1, the episode promises to honor Ducky’s legacy while offering viewers a chance to reminisce about his contributions to the team.

Co-showrunner David J. North revealed that the case holds significant importance to Ducky, serving as a poignant reminder of his dedication and compassion. As the team embarks on this journey, they ask themselves, “What would Ducky do?” It’s a sentiment that reflects the profound impact Ducky had on those around him, both on and off-screen.

With emotions running high, viewers can expect a heartfelt tribute that honors McCallum’s legacy and celebrates the enduring legacy of one of NCIS’s most beloved characters. As tears are shed both on and off-screen, the episode promises to be a fitting tribute to a cherished member of the NCIS family.

NCIS airs Mondays at 9/8c on CBS.
