As to splitting up the team, I'm pretty sure after the season opener they will all be back together. When that piece of the file was shredded the new director's fate was sealed. I'm sure Jenny had an insurance policy too to protect Gibbs and the team.

Anyone get a good look at what that file said?

****, I liked the season Finale. I think the New Director is cool as hell, and would be a good addition to the team. I just wanna see how they tie this whole thing up now. I Will be pissed though if any of the cast members left at the end of tonight, are not on board for season 6.

As much as I like Gibbs, he is the main character, I'm not sure I could handle the whole team being gone, this is just too good of a show with all the right chemistry between the cast to have this kind of a shakeup.

A U.S. Navy "Fit-Rep" (AKA Performance Review). From what I could read in the freeze frame, a highly rated one, including the author's praise and recommendation for "any promotion that he is qualified for".

Administratively, that file should have been in the possession of his CO (Which previously was Director Sheppard) and would have been transferred to the new CO for evaluation of a promotion (in this case, he should have not had access to it, as the Secretary of the Navy "SecNav" should have already received it prior to his being named Director)

I wonder if there's more to this than what we could even read on the HD video, and that Director Vance has more skeletons in his closet than even Gibbs has. The breakup of the team is his way of isolating Gibbs since Gibbs could be the new Directors' undoing (which he probably will).

.

Whenever I see that actor I always think of his role in Crimson Tide...memorable role. He hasn't really done anything high profile/successful since, but I know he's been getting steady work, and I'm glad for that.

I see his splitting up the team as damage control pure and simple. Things got way too personal...their loyalties were to Gibbs and the team and not to the Agency. He had a scandal to cover up, and the best way was to spread them to the wind.

The show wouldn't be the same without Tony...I think Ziva and McGee are replaceable (not that I want them too).

I'm no expert....so your mileage may vary

Yup... would be show killer to replace everyone....

Thanks. I'm still trying to figure out what "side" this new director is on. He seems ok, but in Abby's words, "something's hinkey".

Hopefully, this will not be another House situation. IMHO, that plot device failed with them replacing the original team--the chemistry just isn't there. Replacing Gibbs' entire team? I don't think so.

I think its called a cliffhanger people. They split up the team and leave us guessing for the summer. As one poster said they will be reunited sometime next fall after "several months" of split duty or something like that. The new director knew he couldn't trust Gibbs & his team since they will always work for Gibbs (he comes first) so he split them up. Good eppy. Wonder what Dir Shepard was diagnosed with?

It was not the series finale, it's already been renewed for next year, same time, same channel. No worries, it's coming back.

There was even a promo for The Mentalist, which was described as airing on Tuesdays after NCIS...

As I said weeks ago, the old Director needed to go (she looked silly playing a tough broad) and a new one to replace her was needed to provide more conflict between Gibbs and that character. Have no fear; part of the coming conflict will be how Gibbs finagles the recomposition of his old team back together. There will probably be at least one loss though along the way.

I'd like to see them sharpen up the picture some, it's just so soft the majority of the time.

What is your display?

I have a 1080p FP with an 8' screen, and it looked very good. Some shots were soft in spots, but I believe it is for creative reasons. I like how all CBS' CSI type shows (I realize this show is by a different producer) have unique visual styles. I'm sure smaller screens and/or farther viewing distances would have less impact.

I just don't care for the look, I have a 42" display 1080p, I sit close enough, I just don't think it adds a thing to the show, some of the shots are crystal clear, but the others are just too soft for my tastes. I just like crisper images. It's not going to stop me from watching or enjoying the show. I think CSI looks pretty good, I don't watch CSI:Miami, but from the little bit I've seen of it, it looks really sharp.

I didn't catch the fact that it was an Office's Fitness Report; but he's a civic service employee (not military). A Naval Officer Fitness Report (assuming he had prior active duty as a Naval Officer) should not/would not administratively be available for his civilian personnel file. Of course, NCIS has access to all Navy records if required for investigations. But, it's also very likely that the writers don't know what is administratively correct for either federal civil service or Naval Officer personnel files; and 99%+ plus of the viewers won't know the difference.

However, it is obvious that this quick scene/action definitely is establishing some kind of thread; and I believe it is regarding something negative on the new director.

I finally watched this last night and thought it was a good ending and really not sad to see the director go I just don't think she fit the role all that well. I too believe that they qwill be back together again by Oct. with someone else missing maybe?

I did not see this coming. I understand they have to "shake things up" but I am still not over losing Kate.

Maybe they'll clone her? Have her "sister" put on the team?

Just watched this, and it looked like the new director was shredding something incriminating. It makes him look like a "bad guy", and it could lead to a storyline of Gibbs far flung old team investigating and exposing him.

Then we get a new hot chick as director.

Question: You would have to take the week off when NCIS drops three big bombs on all of us. What gives? — Tygerbam

Ausiello: What gives is… I'm about to more than make it up to you with the following exclusive mini-Q&A with exec producer Shane Brennan featuring your burning questions about the season finale! Woo-hoo!

• Are they really writing out McGee, DiNozzo and Ziva Ã* la House, or will they all be back next season?! Patrick

Brennan: No fan of NCIS will be disappointed when the show returns in September. I promise, we're not doing a House! But strap into your seats, it's going to be a heart stopping ride....

• Please, please, please tell me that they’re not really breaking up the team on NCIS! Lu Ann

Brennan: Deep breaths. Everything is going to be fine. This is Gibbs' team, right?

• Will the show be introducing any new team members next season? Chris

Brennan: Yes. And no.

It was an older man that I think went on to be the Owner of the magazine in Ugly Betty.

edit I checked imdb and am right.
