Fans and viewers have of the CBS military procedural will be looking towards a very emotional and bumpy season premiere, as seen in the recently released trailer for the first episode of the season. Also, Jon Cryer, who will be guest starring in the premiere episode, recently chatted about how he had been picked for this very crucial role in the season premiere, and how he prepared for the grueling task of helping Gibbs to turn away from the light at the end of the tunnel. WARNING: This article contains spoilers for the premiere episode of the thirteenth season of “NCIS”, entitled “Stop the Bleeding”.
It is no secret that, despite all the odds, NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) will survive to fight another die. It was after being shot by the young Luke, a young boy who was recruited by the sinister international terrorist organization called the Calling. They were also responsible for the death of one of their own- NCIS Agent Ned Dorneget (Matt Jones).
Now, fans and viewers will be able to see the journey that Gibbs’ character will take. He fights to survive and as he struggles with the new limitations that the incident created for him.
Gibbs’ first ally, aside from his team, who will always be loyal to him, is the brilliant but tough Navy Surgeon, Dr. Cyril Taft, who will be portrayed by “Two and a Half Men’s” Jon Cryer.
According to his interview with Entertainment Weekly, Cryer describes the good doctor as “the Jeff Goldblum of surgeons.”
He also stated that he never expected to have a character that has such a crucial role in the upcoming season. He had always wanted to guest star on the show as one of the show’s victims who usually dies in the beginning of the episode.
He also mentioned that he hadn’t really been able to prepare that much for this particular role as he had less than a week to prepare before filming. In fact, one of the surgeons that will be seen in the episode helping Dr. Taft is the surgeon with whom Cryer spent one whole day with in order to learn more about how a surgeon is during an operation.
It was also discovered that Cryer won’t just be seen in this episode, but in three episodes during the upcoming season.
The trailer of the season premiere, “Stop the Bleeding” has also just been released on the show’s official Twitter account. The official website of CBS also has just released, along with other exclusive first look pictures of other CBS shows, the first few first look photos of the season’s premiere episode.
The trailer promises fans a very emotional, action packed episode, as Gibbs, during the moment when he flatlined for a little bit, sees his deceased daughter, who leads him towards a doorway filled with light.

A bomb and explosion were also seen.
