In the gripping finale of NCIS's 21st season, Special Agent Jessica Knight, portrayed by the talented Katrina Law, confronted a life-altering career choice.  Fans watched in suspense as Knight deliberated throughout the episode, torn between loyalty to her team and the alluring position of Head Reaction Training Officer at Pendleton Camp.

The drama peaked as Knight grappled with her emotions, the bonds she's forged with her NCIS colleagues, and her romantic entanglement with the endearing Dr. Jimmy Palmer, played by Brian Dietzen.  Her inner turmoil was palpable, her decision, not just a career move but a statement about her priorities and the life she envisioned for herself.

Binder played coy about Knight’s future on the series, looking to past character exits as possible examples.

  “We’ve had people look like they were going away and then it’s found out they weren’t going away, and then people who just disappear like Gibbs [Mark Harmon],” he said.

The showrunner explained that with Law’s character the writers are “trying to follow” the “Tony DiNozzo departure” structure.Binder noted that DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) left the show, but only after he asked himself, “What would it take to get a certain character away?  ” and the answer was having his child.

When it comes to Knight’s motivation to leave, it’s not as clear-cut.   For her, “It’s a combination of a thing that she had applied for and wanted to do — she’s talked about the plan with her father — and then having this relationship with Jimmy where suddenly things are in flux in a way that it makes it easier for her to say goodbye,” Binder shared.
