Ralph Waite, known to millions as John Walton Sr. on the warmhearted 1970s TV series The Waltons – and, more recently, as the Mark Harmon character's father, Jackson "Jack" Gibbs, on the CBS hit NCIS – died at his Palm Desert home at about 11 a.m. Thursday, according to the Desert Sun. He was 85.

I wonder how NCIS will deal with this.

I'm sure that they'll work something out.

Either they already have a possible exit canned, or they will do some medical exit such as a heart attack.

I figure Gibbs will get word he had a heart attack and he'll go to town to handle everything, and somehow it will tie into whatever the rest of the team is working on. Or maybe he won't go, but he'll be unusually moody and flashbacky while he's working on a case. I somehow don't think they'll go with Jackson being murdered and Gibbs going to solve it.

I liked the way The West Wing handled John Spencer's death, although it cost Alan Alda the Presidency.

Long time fan-was thrilled when he came onto NCIS....during the day I have the TV on when I'm doing stuff. Not necessarily watching and he came on as a priest in Days of Our Lives.
