“NCIS” season 13 is nearing its end and many are wondering how lead actor Michael Weatherly will exit the show. The actor himself said fans will surely love the way he will exit from the show.
While speaking with E! Online, the 47-year-old actor, who portrays the role of special agent Anthony “Tony” DiNozzo in “NCIS”, revealed that the penultimate episode of the CBS series’ 13th season will not only bring excitement to its followers, but happiness as well.
“I’m sure certain people out of the however many tens of millions of people who watch the show around the world,” he said, adding, “certainly there will be some different points of view but I think if people share my feelings about it then it’s going to be overwhelmingly positive. “
Michael Weatherly has been part of “NCIS” for 13 years already, which explained how emotional he got while filming his last episode.
“I do know that it’s been an extraordinary run-up over the last few,” he admitted. “As I get these clips that have been sent around, it’s really become very emotional for me to watch this transition of Tony DiNozzo off the show.”
He further narrated, though, that he “had the most extraordinary time shooting this last episode and really felt so connected not just with the cast and the writing team and the producers and everyone.”
But when it comes to the question that everyone has been asking about the “NCIS” season finale episode, he did not mention anything about seeing Cote de Pablo’s Ziva David, his love interest on the series.
However, a separate E! Online report disclosed that in the sneak peak of the last episode of the police procedural TV series, Michael Weatherly’s character was seen desperately looking for her.
While Cote de Pablo’s stated during an appearance at Babson College in Massachusetts that she is no longer re-appearing, showrunner Gary Glasberg pointed out that she will play a big role in the actor’s exit.
