NCIS Season 20 started a new era for the series. It was the first full season without Mark Harmon’s Agent Gibbs helming the major case response team. Gary Cole admirably took over the leading role, and he did a great job of pushing the series forward with his Agent Parker character. However, it was Torres who took center stage as the season wrapped up. There was a big cliffhanger involved, and it looked like Torres was about to employ some vigilante justice in thoroughly Gibbs-like fashion.
