A dearly departed character returns to CBS drama NCIS on October 15, when Mike Franks appears (in spirit, at least) to confront Leroy Jethro Gibbs in 'Anonymous Was a Woman.' The episode, written by Steven Binder and directed by Terrence O'Hara, involves an Afghan women's shelter and Franks' connection to it.
In the episode, fan favorite Muse Watson appears as the late Mike Franks. Franks secretly supported a shelter that smuggles Afghan women out of the country to freedom. A murder case of a woman impersonating a soldier leads Gibbs (Mark Harmon) to the shelter, and he and Tim McGee (Sean Murray) travel to Afghanistan to investigate.
The episode title is taken from A Room of One's Own, Virginia Woolf's classic statement of the challenges facing females: "I would venture to guess that Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman." The phrase is commonly misquoted as "For most of history, Anonymous was a woman," and has stuck in popular culture.
"For most of history, Anonymous was a woman." - attributed to Virginia Woolf
'Anonymous was a Woman' also guest stars the talented Lolita Davidovich. Michael Weatherly, Pauley Perrette, David McCallum, Rocky Carroll and Brian Dietzen round out the rest of the cast.
