Gibbs’ Rule 15 was always work as a team and in the ‘NCIS’ Season 19 DVD, Katrina Law and Gary Cole talk about how the team came together after Gibbs’ departure. The NCIS universe expanded in season 19 with the addition of Alden Parker (Gary Cole) and with Jessica Knight (Katrina Law) becoming a series regular. In the “Cast of Characters” exclusive bonus content from the DVD release, the two actors share their thoughts on joining the cast and the importance of Rule 15: Always work as a team!
“My favorite script so far is the one where we are all in a boat,” Law says. “That was the first time post-Gibbs that you saw the team come together to become what we are now. It was the first time that Alden Parker accepted us and claimed us as his own and put himself at risk for his team. I think that was a huge moment for the show going forward because it showed, ‘Yes, we are a team. We care about each other and, eventually, we are all going to love each other as a dysfunctional little family.’”
