NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

Stakeout - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: When he hands Tony the autopsy report, Ducky has hair falling over his forehead, then combed back, then over his forehead again repeatedly from shot to shot. (00:07:15)

Stakeout - S5-E12

Other mistake: Season 5, Episode 12, "Stakeout": The picture on McGee's camera phone is just wrong. It shows not just the man in front of him, but it also shows a hand, holding a camera phone - McGee's camera phone. In other words, the phone is showing a picture of itself and the man, instead of just the man. (00:40:25)

Stakeout - S5-E12

Visible crew/equipment: Abby gives Ducky the blood results for John Doe and Ducky leaves the autopsy. When he does there is a yellow tape marker visible on one side of the table, an orange marker by Jimmy and a white marker by Abby. (00:36:00)

Show generally

Question: I finally saw the 2-part episode from the show JAG. Does anyone know what happened to Viv Blackadder? I don't recall hearing anyone ever mention the name on NCIS.

Answer: I hadn't seen the backdoor pilots yet but while it wasn't explicitly stated, at least onscreen, I heard somewhere Vivian got either fired from NCIS due to jeopardizing a case, got resigned from the agency, or transferred to the FBI.


Answer: I dont believe it is ever mentioned, but like most pilot episodes the characters are often changed, replaced or even removed in this case.
