‘NCIS’ Fans Have a Lot of Questions After Maria Bello’s Debut

CBS procedural’s newest episode introduced Gibbs’ team to Jack Sloane

Maria Bello as Jack Sloane on "NCIS"

There is no shortage of action this season on “NCIS,” and apparently plenty of loose ends as well.

Tuesday’s installment of the venerable CBS procedural featured the introduction of Maria Bello as Special Agent Jack Sloane, who joined Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and the team. The episode also featured a storm knocking out power in Washington, D.C., along with the investigation into a kidnapped sailor.

Many fans took to Twitter during the episode to ask questions about the show, with a number of queries focused on the chemistry between Bishop (Emily Wickersham) and Navy Commander Thomas Buckner (Trevor Donovan).

“Will we get to see the coffee ‘date’ between Thomas and Ellie????” one fan wanted to know.

Another user wasn’t enamored with the first name of Bello’s character, given the similarity to Gibbs’ nickname for his dad. “Couldn’t [‘NCIS’] pick something other than Jack?” the viewer asked.

Check out an array of fan questions below, including one fan who refuses to accept that Abby (Pauley Perrette) is saying goodbye at the end of Season 15.


“NCIS” airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on CBS.
