    Hmm... I just realized I still think of David McCallum as Illya Kuryakin, even though he's been Ducky for more than twice as long...

    Well, I notice that NCIS has TWO producers now in the opening credits (I never noticed it earlier). I suspect he's still got a guiding hand (it still has the Bellisario logo at the end).

    He's basically split his time with NCIS and NCIS LA, which probably keeps tensions low.

    So do I.

    I still remberer the exchange between Kate and Gibbs in one episode.
    Kate: What did "Ducky" look like when he was younger?
    Gibbs: He looked like Illy Kuryakin.

    I think in that episode they also scanned over a few framed pictures in his home that was a B&W picture of McCallum in a suite with a triangular badge.

    The logo at the end is for his production company, which still produces the show.

    His credit at the beginning is "executive producer" or something like that, which he retains as the creator of the show, but he's totally hands-off.

    No one ever dies on NCIS unless they want off the show. So we will see everyone next season I bet.
    It was a hell of a finally though. and so was NCIS LA

    Yeah, I bit on that fakeout, too, when they started listening at the background of the tape and said the bell sound was the Navy chapel.

    And the "stress of not knowing who lives or dies" is not the point. Seeing characters that we've watched for a long time get beaten up for the sake of a dumb storyline is just not fun. If you're going to put people in peril, make it for a good reason, not for an idiot plot.

    "The Meat Puzzle" was the name of the episode

    I actually am a little disappointed to read
    that Ducky isn't dead
    . Not in that I don't like him, but
    to have a heart attack on a deserted beach, fixed pupil and all, and survive is stretching it.

    I might watch it. I will be interesting to see if I remember the picture right or if I just imagined it.
