DiNozzo really is at peace.
"Finally, we leave you with some thoughts to consider over the summer as everyone rests, recovers, and recharges," Glasberg said. "We are eager to show you what NCIS has in store for Season 14. Heck, we've got some great stuff headed your way. And, that's the truth."
"But, here's what I'd like to say before I go. We have no intention of trying to replace Tony. We can't. He was, and always will be, a huge part of this show. All we can do is move forward, evolve, and continue on this amazing journey for seasons to come. We truly hope you enjoyed the season finale."
"That said, before I go, I urge everyone to go back and watch again. Really watch and listen. Hear what's being said. Pay attention. Tony DiNozzo is at peace, and he and Tali are moving on, searching for answers and happiness.—just like the team has to move on, as well."
"In Gibbs' basement, Gibbs and Tony agree on something very important: 'You gotta do what you gotta do. And, you gotta believe what you gotta believe.' Thanks for believing."
