NCIS Season 3 2005
Series 3 opens on a melancholy note, as the Naval Criminal Investigate Service team headed by the iconoclastic Leroy Jethro Gibbs mourns the death of team member Caitlin "Kate" Todd at the hands of ruthless terrorist. Gibbs' response to this tragic loss is encapsulated in the title of the two-part opener, "Kill Ari", which introduces Cote de Pablo as new NCI member Ziva David, a former Mossad officer who also has a score to settle with Ari. Another new regular is introduced in the episode "Silver War": Lauren Holly as NCIS director Jenny Shepard, who replaces former director Tom Morrow when the latter joins the Homeland Security department. Jenny's arrival adds a whole new dimension to the series, inasmuch as she had previously been the partner, and lover, of Leroy Gibbs.
Nominated for 3 Primetime Emmys. Another 22 wins & 30 nominations.
