We have seen it over the years, the writers never hesitate to kill their characters, especially when the actors decide to leave. Whether it's Kate (Sasha Alexander), Jenny (Lauren Holly), Clayton Reeves (Duane Henry) or Ziva (Cote de Pablo) – who was finally resurrected recently, the hearts of viewers have suffered regularly.
A departure at the height of the character
So, should we fear a similar situation with Sloane? That's the question Frank Cardea (the show's co-showrunner) just answered with TVLine. While the heroine will appear in nearly 8 episodes of season 18, the writers should take full advantage of this time to prepare the ground for this departure, ” When we are looking for a way to make a character leave, the thing that l 'you always wonder it's:' What does this character deserve? ' And Sloane is a very strong, passionate character. So we're really going to allow him to walk away with something to match that. ”
It is difficult to know whether or not to feel reassured by this statement. Nevertheless, a small reason for hope for her survival, Frank Cardea also clarified that ” the question of the fans on what is really going on between her and Gibbs ” will be resolved before her departure. However, we do not imagine the authors taking the time to respond to this subject to finally stage a tragic end. On the contrary, the development of this relation could be a pretext / a consequence to this departure. We cross fingers.
