NCIS late star David McCallum’s last scene revealed – producers longing for a classic iconic Duckie comeback

David McCallum was NCIS’s last remaining original cast member. His final iconic scene was remembered – as bosses admitted hopes for return.

NCIS star David McCallum tragically d.ied on Monday due to natural causes at the age of 90, and was surrounded by his loved ones in his final moments.

The Hollywood star was the last remaining original cast member on the long-running crime show, having appeared in over 500 episodes as NCIS historian Dr Donald ‘Ducky’ Mallard, although his role had gone from series regular to occassional appearances over the years.

In what would become his final ever scene on the CBS show, the actor appeared in the season 20 finale episode titled Black Sky in May with a pivotal piece of dialogue cementing the moment among the series’ best.

The finale of the show’s latest season saw Wilmer Valderrama’s character getting in a bit too deep undercover as he played the role of cellmate to the team’s target; Russian terrorist Yuri Valkov.

Over the years it had become more common for David’s character to avoid the on-the-ground action, instead sharing insights and a helping hand remotely, which is precisely what his final scene entailed as he was screened into the NCIS offices via a video link.

As Wilmer’s Agent Torres character manages to sneak the serial number to Yuri’s burner phone to the team, Dr Ducky reveals what the terrorist group’s real plan is.

In his final NCIS appearance, David was the cast member to utter the episode’s title, explaining that the group is planning a “Black Sky event”, a complete shutdown of the country’s electrical grid that would cause “a total breakdown of society as we know it”.

Many fans felt this would be David’s last appearance on the show as they believed his character would retire from the team and similarly, the actor from the set.
