As the NCIS season finale draws closer, fans everywhere are preparing to say goodbye to actor Michael Weatherly. Now, we’ve got our first glimpse at what Tony DiNozzo’s last hurrah on the series will look like thanks to a new promo released by CBS.
The TV spot for this year’s two-part finale doubles as a beautiful tribute to Weatherly’s character and showcases some of his best moments. There’s one moment in particular early on in the trailer that’s sure to give you all the feels— especially if you’re a fan of Tony and Ziva!
Actress Cote de Pablo may have confirmed that she won’t be back for Tony DiNozzo’s big sendoff, but the trailer does a great job of including their love story in their farewell by showcasing a touching moment between DiNozzo and his beloved former coworker.
The rest of the trailer showcases a few snapshots of DiNozzo bidding emotional farewells to some of the people he’ll be leaving behind after he quits the agent business for good.
Showrunner Gary Glasberg is keeping tight lipped as to what will prompt DiNozzo to leave, but much to Tony/Ziva shippers’ delight, he did tease that Ziva will be part of the reason for his departure.
“The relationship that Tony has with Ziva absolutely has an impact on his reason to depart at the end of the season,” Glasberg told The Hollywood Reporter. “Ziva is a huge part of who Tony is and at the end of the day, that comes into play.”
Michael Weatherly’s final episodes as Tony DiNozzo on NCIS air Tuesday, May 10 and Tuesday, May 17 at 8 p.m. on CBS
