Since Valderrama seemed to be wanting to say more about the pictures but wasn’t able to, this moment could hold a lot of significance.
It definitely would if it were the death and funeral of a character that has been on the show for almost 20 years since its very start in 2003.
Of course, the hope remains that Ducky isn’t actually dead is Valderrama was just teasing fans.
But avid NCIS viewers should still brace themselves for a rocky season 18 finale.
NCIS season 18 continues Tuesday, April 6 on CBS.
