1 | Don’t you wish Outlander had given Angus a few final words, rather than just guttural noises and blood-spitting?
2 | Did seeing this commercial during 30 for 30‘s O.J. docuseries make you wonder how Hertz for so long got away with that missing apostrophe? Ugh.
3 | How is it that the Tonys are vastly more entertaining than other awards shows? Is it because of the snippets of Broadway productions (e. »

NCIS is going to try to return to basics for season 14. The end of season 13 of this popular CBS series saw the departure of Michael Weatherly, and the potential addition of two new faces to the team. Gary Glasberg still needs to figure out how Sarah Clarke's FBI agent Tess Monroe and Duane Henry's Mi-6 agent Clayton Reeves fit in the action on the drama.

In the last two episodes of NCIS season 13, FBI Special Agent Tess Monroe (played by Sarah Clarke) was introduced to fans as one of the two replacements for "Very Special" Agent Tony Dinozzo. It goes without saying that no one can fill Tony's shoes. Adding new characters to beloved shows can be notoriously difficult (right, Bishop?) Tess, who transferred over from the New York counter-terrorism department three months ago, definitely made her presence known when she met the team.
So has NCIS found a worthy replacement for Tony? Not so fast! We haven't had a lot of time to get to know Tess, but so far, I am less than impressed. »

Last time on NCIS, we got to know FBI Special Agent Tess Monroe (played by Sarah Clarke) and MI6 Officer Clayton Reeves (played by Duane Henry) as they worked with the team to capture British spy Jacob Scott. In this case, they found Scott in the elevator at NCIS headquarters -- surrendering and saying that he was innocent. It turned out that the murderer was actually evil former (and recently fired) CIA Agent Trent Kort, and he framed Scott to take the fall. Kort was selling secrets to the Russians, then told the Russians that one of their own, Nika Razin, was leaking intelligence. Razin, who was Scott's wife, was shot before NCIS and MI6 could apprehend her. Scott was arrested for selling American nuclear intelligence to Russia.

NCIS might be saying goodbye to Michael Weatherly next week (yes, you might want to stock up your tissues now), but it's welcoming two new faces this week that will hopefully stick around for a while. Tonight's episode introduces Tess Monroe and Clayton Reeves, the FBI and MI6 agents, respectively, who are collaborating with the NCIS team on the case they've all been chasing: an escaped British spy who is targeting agents all over the world. This storyline will not only bring in the new faces, played by Sarah Clarke and Duane Henry, but Tony will also find himself involved as his exit grows closer.
