NCIS fans may be waiting eagerly/nervously/anxiously for next week’s farewell to Ziva episode, but while the wound of Ziva’s departure is going to be very fresh after next Tuesday, over at the set, they’ve had a few episodes to deal with the shock and are looking toward the future with high hopes. Especially Michael Weatherly, who opened up to me about the upcoming addition of Emily Wickersham as a new agent named Bishop. “We’re excited about is having Emily join us on these little adventures we do every week and seeing how she is in the world that we create together,” he says. “I hope the audience likes her as much as we did right away.”
But to those who are worried about a possible romance between the two, Weatherly assures that’s probably the last thing on Tony’s mind. “I don’t think there’s any chance of Bishop being involved in that in any way. If anything, she would be deeply, deeply off-limits for him,” he says with a chuckle. “It won’t even enter his brain — and that’s another thing. I think she’s going to be very attractive, but I just don’t think DiNozzo will see her like that for even a heartbeat. I think there’s a level of maturity for him. He’s averse to anyone who would sit at that desk, I think.“
Weatherly sees Tony’s maturity shining through in other ways, too, he says, particularly when it comes to the character’s attention-seeking ways. “Here’s a funny thing I’ve discovered: when it’s just McGee, DiNozzo and Gibbs in the squad room, DiNozzo doesn’t really have anyone to perform for,” he says. “Tony just kind of calms down and does his job.” That said, there’s still fun to be had. Proof? There’s a headslap coming. And while Weatherly wouldn’t elaborate, he did call it “a classic moment.”
