It has been 13 long seasons, and finally the time has come when Michael Weatherly exits the stage. He has been a fan-favorite amongst the masses, and this news tidbit might not be taken favorably. But still, as he was part of the original cast, the character’s popularity doesn’t dwindle yet. Following are different 8 fan reactions upon witnessing the departure of Michael Weatherly.
1. The Romance Aspect of Tony with Ziva
“The romantic pairing of Ziva and DiNozzo’s just made the show more captivating to the viewer.” – Amy Ferguson Dutton
“This would completely change the course of the show. Fingers crossed that the writers might provide some happy ending closure to the character, by letting him end up with Ziva.” – Debby Smith
“Every second of him being in contact with Ziva was all the more fascinating. Moving on to the next- (hopefully entitled)..NCIS :Israel with Tony and Ziva”. – Linda Mae Deaton
2. The Gibbs-slaps
“I just want to see Gibbs hit Tony one more time!” – Troy Skillman
“Give the character time….Tony will always grow on you. Transitioning from the prick that would always get slapped in the back of his head by Gibbs to a major character, he would actually be missed by the fandom.” – Coreen Edwards
