"Family First" and "Sleeping With the Enemy" sneak peeks

NCIS and NCIS: New Orleans air their season finales tonight from 8:00-10:00pm ET/PT. You can find sneak peeks below, along with behind-the-scenes videos, interviews, quotes, tweets and photos!

Here’s the first clip from the NCIS season 13 finale, “Family First”, featuring Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly), Timothy McGee (Sean Murray), Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and Ellie Bishop (Emily Wickersham). (You can also find it on CBS.com, CBS Press Express and SpoilerTV.)

Scene number two features Tony, Gibbs, McGee and Bishop. (It’s also available on CBS.com, CBS Press Express and SpoilerTV.)

And here’s sneak peek number three, which features Tony and his father, Anthony DiNozzo Sr (Robert Wagner). (You can also watch it on CBS.com, CBS Press Express and SpoilerTV.)

CBS also shared several behind-the-scenes videos, which you can find below. The first features Weatherly, Harmon, Pauley Perrette (Abby Sciuto), Brian Dietzen (Jimmy Palmer), Murray, David McCallum (Dr Donald “Ducky” Mallard), Wickersham and Rocky Carroll (Leon Vance). (It can also be found on CBS.com, CBS Press Express and SpoilerTV.)

And here’s another, featuring Weatherly. (You can also watch it on CBS.com.)

Weatherly participated in a live Facebook chat today, and here’s the video:

In the lead-up to his departure, Weatherly did various interviews, and you can watch several below:

Murray told Entertainment Tonight that he’ll miss working with Weatherly, but the pair remains close off-screen. “We’re both the kind of people who don’t like to say goodbye … but I love Michael and I love Tony,” Murray said. “People are afraid of change, but change can also mean possibilities and new things to explore. We’ll see what happens!”

Weatherly visited The Late Show last night. You can watch the full episode here (skip to 27:30 for Weatherly’s interview), or find a clip below, followed by several photos:

Weatherly also visited CBS This Morning today, and you can watch the interview below:

And here’s an interview with Weatherly from Live With Kelly and Michael:

Executive Producer Gary Glasberg spoke to TV Guide back in March about Tony’s exit, and here’s a quote:

Everything that people want and think should be a part of these episodes, on-screen and off-, whether it’s just story or background leading up to stuff … everything will be touched upon, and the whole writing staff is really putting some time and effort into it. People can absolutely plan on lots of surprises and lots of emotion, and lots of twists and turns, ultimately leading us toward Tony’s departure.

Glasberg promised E! Online that former NCIS agent Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) would play into the finale storyline, and she came up in connection with the case during last week’s penultimate episode. Here’s a quote from Glasberg:

Tony’s relationship with Ziva absolutely will have an impact on his reason to depart. There’s no part of Tony DiNozzo that Ziva David isn’t a part of. She’s a huge aspect of who his character is so it would be unfair and wrong to write this episode, to produce this episode and not have her character be a part of it.

However, TVLine reported last month that de Pablo did not return to film scenes for “Family First”. Despite this fact, Weatherly insisted that Ziva would be present in spirit, even if she did not physically appear in the episode. As Deadline reported following a conference call last week, Weatherly had this to say:

I think the audience will feel very strongly that she’s in the episode in a way that might be a little Shakespearean but it’s real, and I think it’s going to be a very exciting time for fans of that relationship. I mean, bring a box of whatever you need, bring a change of clothing. You might not be able to go to work the next day.

Glasberg also spoke to TVLine about the finale, which will focus on Weatherly’s character. “We’re going to give people the fun and the drive of NCIS,” he revealed, “but we also really wanted to make sure that we got the emotional moments as well. It’s really about the resonance of Tony’s departure.”

Tony reaches a “crossroads” in tonight’s finale, pushing him to leave NCIS. “There are outside influences,” Glasberg told TV Guide. “Something that has a mammoth impact on him – and understandably, would take that significant an impact to have him step away from his NCIS family.”

TVLine posted a longer interview with Glasberg as well, including this excerpt:

WILL THE NCIS FAITHFUL SHED TEARS? | And might Gibbs be among them? “People should absolutely be planning on some really serious, heart-wrenching moments. There’ll be tissues involved,” Glasberg attests. “I’m very proud of the emotional resonance of what this is, even in terms of what we’re filming right now in the finale.” The EP promises meaningful exchanges between DiNozzo and each of his fellow team members, including “an amazing moment with Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon) that really resulted in something that I didn’t see coming.”

Here’s a question and answer from Entertainment Weekly:

I need some clues, hints, etc. about how Tony will leave NCIS. Pretty please! — Marla

What you really want to know is whether they’re going to kill Tony off. “In the world of NCIS, nothing is absurd,” executive producer Gary Glasberg says. “I think the fact that Michael [Weatherly] is in the finale tells whether he takes a bullet in it or not. But we are not afraid of doing the unexpected and some of that certainly comes into play in this episode. I think it’s fair to say people should watch!”

During the conference call last week, Weatherly said he isn’t sure how people will react to the finale. Here’s a quote, courtesy of E! Online:

You can never predict those things. That’s like me trying to tell you the weather three-and-a-half weeks from now. I do know that it’s been an extraordinary run-up over the last few. 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.

But will Weatherly return for guest appearances once he is no longer a series regular? According to E! Online, it is a definite possibility. “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],” Weatherly said.

Wagner was on The Talk in March, and he discussed his role on NCIS as well as Weatherly’s departure—here’s a clip:

CBS shared this sneak peek from the NCIS: NOLA season two finale, “Sleeping With the Enemy”, featuring Meredith Brody (Zoe McLellan) and Sebastian Lund (Rob Kerkovich)—following an introductory video from McLellan:

The network also posted two cast videos, which you can watch below. The first features Daryl “Chill” Mitchell (Patton Plame), CCH Pounder (Dr Loretta Wade), McLellan, Kerkovich, Lucas Black (Christopher LaSalle), Shalita Grant (Sonja Percy) and Scott Bakula (Dwayne Pride). (You can also find it on CBS.com and CBS Press Express.)

And here’s the other, featuring Bakula, McLellan, Grant, Kerkovich, Michell, Black and Pounder. (It’s also available on CBS.com and CBS Press Express.)

Bakula visited KTLA today, and here’s an interview about the finale:

McLellan also visited KTLA this week, and you can watch her interview below:

Executive Producer Gary Glasberg spoke to TV Guide about the finale, which will take its toll on Pride:

He’s got some decisions to make, and some issues to face. And now, with this really significant case that will tie him in a complex way to decisions being made in Washington … he’s going to be facing some really significant adversaries. He already carries the weight of New Orleans on his shoulders, so this will add to that as well.
