“NCIS” CURRENT SEASON
“NCIS” is currently on its 18th season, airing on Tuesday nights, and as thrilling as it has been for the fans to see their favorite characters return for another season, they have already had to deal with the deaths of two characters.
First, there was Jimmy’s (Dietzen) wife Breena (Michelle Pierce), who is believed to have passed away due to COVID-19, leaving him a single parent at the verge of a breaking point.
This season’s second death was that of former FBI Agent Tobias Fornell’s (Joe Spano) daughter Emily (Juliette Angelo) due to an opiate overdose that put her in the hospital earlier in the season.
Before Emily passed away, Fornell and Leroy Gibbs (Harmon) worked as a team and managed to shut down the drug trafficking ring responsible for Emily’s tragic ending, saving many lives.
