Watch Clips From Tonight’s ‘NCIS’ & ‘NCIS:LA’ Finales


NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles will air their season finales tonight. You can find sneak peeks, interviews and tweets after the jump!

This extended preview for the NCIS season 11 finale, “Honor Thy Father”, has the 30-second promo posted here, followed by a scene featuring Timothy McGee (Sean Murray), Ellie Bishop (Emily Wickersham), Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) and Leroy Jetho Gibbs (Mark Harmon). (It’s also available on and SpoilerTV.)

Next, CBS shared this clip featuring Gibbs and Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll). (You can also watch it on CBS Press Express and SpoilerTV.)

Executive producer Gary Glasberg wrote a guest column for Entertainment Weekly about the finale’s heartfelt goodbye to the late actor Ralph Waite (Jackson Gibbs). You can read an excerpt below:

We sat down and reflected on Ralph’s extraordinary career. From Cool Hand Luke to The Waltons, Ralph Waite defined and earned the title “character actor.” We considered adding a simple In Memoriam card to the end of the next episode that was about to air. It didn’t feel like enough of a gesture. We contemplated re-running “Better Angels,” his last wonderful storyline with us. It felt redundant. Ralph deserved more. He would have wanted us to stretch, to push the story envelope, to leave people feeling the loss of Jackson Gibbs, not just reflecting on it.

Glasberg also spoke to TV Guide about the tribute. Here’s a quote:

Everyone involved really wanted to do this. We wanted to do this properly and say goodbye to a character that we all really enjoyed writing over the years, and goodbye to an actor that meant a lot to us. … This was such a significant event for us, both on-screen and off, that we wanted to handle it properly and do it well, and let people mourn the passing of Gibbs’ dad with him.

Finally, here are a few tweets from yesterday and today:
