While fans are devastated at Gibb’s departure, it’s fair to say the character deserved a well-earned retirement in peaceful Alaska.
Although Mark Harmon will be sorely missed, some viewers anticipate Agent Parker will attempt to replace him and be more cutthroat.
Before Gibbs was able to talk him down, he was adamant about returning him to the station in handcuffs, it’s yet to be seen how much further he can go.
Another fan, AllThingsOC, shared their appreciation for the actor and tweeted: “Thank you Mark Harmon for bringing us Gibbs to NCIS. It won’t be the same without you!”
NCIS season 19 continues Mondays on CBS in the USA. A UK release date is yet to be confirmed.
