AceShowbiz - "NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service" just lost one of its longtime and original cast members, but at least he had a fond farewell. The show sent off %cMichael Weatherly% and his character in the season 13 finale after a surprising revelation.
Following the explosion at Ziva's farmhouse in the penultimate episode, the team mourned the death of their former colleague. Tony unleashed his anger at Gibbs, who then told Tony to get home. Gibbs gave McGee an approval to track down the person behind the attack.
The next day, Mossad director Orli Elbaz came to introduce Tali, Ziva's daughter with Tony the "only biological possibility" as the father. It was later confirmed when Tony's father showed a picture of Tony and Ziva to Tali and the little girl called them "Imah" and "Abba." In case you're wondering when that happened, Tony told McGee that he and Ziva had a "fond farewell" before she left the agency.
While Tony's babysitting Tali at his apartment with the help of Jimmy and DiNozzo Sr., the rest of the team hunted down Trent Kort, the former CIA agent who's behind the attack. When the team finally tracked down Kort, he claimed, "I had no idea she'd be in the farmhouse. It was nothing personal." Tony said, "She was family." Kort went for his gun, prompting every agent to unload his/her weapon.
After Jimmy asked him if he's coming back to work now that he's a single dad, the question that's weighing on Tony's mind, he met Gibbs to tell him that he's quitting the agency. "You gotta do whatcha gotta do," Gibbs told him. Tony visited the office the next day to say goodbye to his co-workers, calling McGee "Very Special Agent Timothy McGee."
Despite his last episode as a series regular on "NCIS", Weatherly isn't going anywhere far. He will headline a new series on CBS, "Bull". The actor is also open to the possibility of returning to the procedural series, saying, "I would absolutely be open to anything and everything, including things that no one's even thought of yet-so I would say the long answer is yes [to a guest spot in the future]."
