Pauley Perrette is about to say goodbye to her character of 15 years, Abby Sciuto, in the upcoming NCIS season 15 episode 22, Two Steps Back. A new longer trailer of Abby’s episode has now emerged and it is giving an indication of her exit.

Perrette already announced her exit this season, however, it looks like no one will be ready to see her leave – especially in a body bag. Will Abby actually die in Two Steps Back?

New promotional video

The new promo didn’t give much away about Abby’s exit, however, it shows the emotional pain the agents are going through because of Abby’s departure.

There is even a flashback scene of the Kill Ari episode where Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) promised Abby he will keep her safe. It also shows her journey that traverses 15 seasons and a total of over 350 episodes.

There is another scene where Gibbs and Eleanor Bishop (Emily Wickersham) kicked in a door and appears to be looking for somebody. Are the two going to arrest someone? It looks like the upcoming episode will be pretty intense, aside from being too emotional, as discussed on

Gibbs blaming himself with what happened to Abby

You may recall in the previous episode, One Step Forward, Abby and Clayton Reeves (Duane Henry) got mugged by an unknown guy after the two had an enjoyable night out.

As a shot rang out, it is still a big mystery who got shot in that scene.

In NCIS season 15 episode 22’s official trailer, Abby can be seen lying on a hospital bed, while Gibbs is by her side. He is apologising and blaming himself as he believed he could do more to protect her just like he promised. Although what happened to Abby and Reeves is an accident, Gibbs can’t still help but feel sorry for what happened.

The official synopsis

In episode 22’s official synopsis, a hitman’s latest target is said to be an NCIS member as we now know. To discover who this hitman is, the team should go through the old case files to determine who is seeking vengeance.

With what happened to Abby and Reeves in the previous episode, it might be safe to say the hitman is targeting Abby.

However, there are still a lot of possibilities who the real target might be. Also, fans are still hopeful they will see Abby in the future and the fandom will surely go on a strike if she ever dies.

So, fans just have to wait to finally see Abby’s future in the upcoming new episode, Two Steps Back, on Tuesday, May 8, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS Television Network.
