In NCIS‘ Season 10 finale, “Damned If You Do,” the aftermath of the Bodnar manhunt turns into a federal witch hunt against Gibbs and his team, questioning their unconventional methods and threatening their future at the agency. Cue guest star John M. Jackson, reprising his role of JAG JAG A.J. Chegwidden.

“We’re absolutely looking at … situations that leave us saying, “How is the team going to move forward?” showrunner Gary Glasberg told us. “There is a [legal] case that turns out to be very significant and that dovetails to propel us into the opener for Season 11.”

Later on NCIS: LA, an explosion in the desert rekindles the search for stolen nuclear weapons and brings back Sam’s wife Michele (Aunjanue Ellis), arms dealer Isaak Sidorov (Sons of Anarchy‘s Timothy Murphy) and The Chameleon (Highlander‘s Christopher Lambert), for what show boss Shane Brennan has called “the most powerful finale episode we’ve done… and the darkest by a long, long way. It really ends in a scary place.”
