NCIS Premiere Teases Emotional Tribute Episode! What’s in Store for Ducky/David McCallum Fans!

In the Season 21 premiere of CBS’ NCIS, Special Agent Nick Torres finds himself entangled in a web of intrigue and danger. Following an undercover operation that leads him to confront Maurice Riva, the man who once terrorized his family, Torres becomes embroiled in a murder investigation when Riva is found dead. Despite his protestations of innocence, Torres is arrested for the crime, believing he’s protecting his sister Lucia.

However, it’s revealed that Riva’s death was orchestrated by Torres’ prison acquaintance, Reymundo De Leon’s mother, who sought vengeance for her son. She leaves behind a confession, exonerating Torres and his team.

As the episode draws to a close, Torres relinquishes his badge and gun, feeling the weight of his actions. Yet, his boss, Parker, reassures him with the words, “One day at a time, Nick.” However, their somber moment is interrupted by a phone call, delivering tragic news.

Parker’s solemn expression hints at the devastating loss of NCIS’s beloved medical examiner-turned-historian, Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard, portrayed by the late David McCallum. This sets the stage for an emotionally charged tribute episode, titled “The Stories We Leave Behind,” where the team mourns Ducky’s passing while delving into one of his unfinished cases.

In crafting this poignant episode, co-written by Brian Dietzen and EP Scott Williams, the focus remains on NCIS’s core elements, with a thematic connection to the legacy we leave behind. Dietzen emphasizes the importance of honoring Ducky’s memory while maintaining the essence of the show’s storytelling.

As viewers brace for the heartfelt tribute to Ducky, the episode promises to celebrate his contributions to the team and explore the impact of his absence on those left behind.
